    what is this obsession with shoes that look almost but not quite like shoes, but are in fact sneakers? why not get shoes? is having a leather sole too adultlike?

    Comfort.

    there are plenty of comfortable leather-soled shoes and comfortable sneakers. why choose a bastardized middle ground ?

    This, if you are uncomfortable in shoes you are doing it wrong.

    You just going to keep posting that? Go buy the 2015 Dunks they released earlier this year (reportedly went for $600-$2000 on eBay) and then wait for the auto-lace ones

    Ditch the white socks Edit: Here's a more viewable version of the photo... [​IMG] Can't say this with certainty without seeing a full body fit pic, but these sneakers appear to suit you much better than all the other footwear I've seen from you (mainly because I can't get behind your need to boot tuck every fit of yours)

    shoebox theres a waywt pic in the appropriate thread.

    lol at the tom ford jeans...had them in my closet for a while..decided to taper so i could get some wear but still didnt like the fit so i flipped.

    mac they are impossible to tie in the front. it took me literally 20 mins to get these right. these are meant to be slipped on therefore the lacing cant be too tight or its imposible to get on. the lacing cant be too loose either or it will look all floppy in the front. once you get the right formula you tie them up (back or front) and never have to worry about them again. the tongue is a stretch material. instead of two elastics like the mmm sneakers the whole tongue is elastic, keeping the sneaker in place without having to tie the laces.

    anyways new version is meant to be ties up in front because there is a zipper in the back. would like the all white.
