    How do those MMM white painted sneakers end up looking after being worn in a whole lot and dirtied?

    Do they peel? Does the paint wash/fall off etc? Or are they the type of shoes that only look good when brand new or in pictures


    ive found the paint on the midsole chips away more than the paint on the shoe itself.
    ive worn them a lot last summer and they still look clean and bright. however, im not one to beat the shit out of my shoes...take it fwiw i guess

    i think ar_6 was actually describing the paper application ones because like you i don't see the paint coming off that much. i guess over time it will still look like a painted shoe but with more cracks/chips than before

    I just remember Snake saying the paint was gradually wearing off of his and that he thought they were improving as a result.

    I haven't had any paint wear off the suede area of my shoes either- just crack like Shah said. The soles still peel and chip a bit.

    Mine mainly just developed cracks and small chips from the creases but not much of it actually peeled off, other than at the midsole.

    Paint hasn't chipped off the suede parts yet but i just got mine [​IMG] But it is chipping off the sole, like you all said [​IMG] On my paper gats the paper doesn't come off, its gotten wet and cracked in areas though [​IMG] And ive pulled some paper off, whats left over is this really white area (better looking than the paper imo) [​IMG] Still wish they were as white as they used to be [​IMG] so thats my life story in pictures
