    I am pissed off just reading this. His price is not unreasonable, it's just not low. The fact that people (well, Uncontrol at least) are indignant that it's not a steal is what's ridiculous here. How fucking entitled can you be? If he paid $615 he is entitled to try to recoup his losses - they were worth that to him, they damn well might be worth that to someone else. What's wrong with that? Don't buy them if they're not but don't throw a goddamn hissy fit, jesus.
    +1 if you can't afford it you can't afford it. stfu. this is the baller sneaker thread, not the "why on earth is a person trying to charge me retail for brand new sneakers which are completely sold out and unavailable everywhere" thread. plebe vultures always looking for top of the line shit at bottom of the barrel prices.

    anyone else notice that CP are doing a GAT now? this is getting ridiculous. I guess they could argue that that's more of a samba...

    Those are more like NB's than GATs. It's even named "Running In" sneakers.

    CP did GATs before GATs were cool. Well actually IATs, Italian Army Trainers, but same sort of idea. I had a pair in white / cream, kinda regret selling.

    Non-baller talk:

    I have two pair of those GAT's that I use and they are pretty good for what they are, good for beaters, they cost me like 25 bucks a pair.

    Baller-talk:

    Sort of want some GF sneaks that RFX had on his blog, they were dope town, but I sorta want some nylon sneaks, maybe CP or Raf, if Lanvin at some point go back to more restrained ish I'd probably kop.

    those aren't GAT's. they aren't even close. just because they have suede around the toe area and which comes up in the middle doesn't make them a GAT.

    They look more like sambas to me

    and since gats are samba offspring, at least a cousin?

    The suede toes are the only thing that resembles the Sambas to those CPs.

    Most Lanvin lows available now are pretty restraint. Patent toe and either has smooth, suede or washed leather uppers. Doesn't get anymore simple as that.

    Yah lows are always in stock just in different variations every season. I haven't really seen any nice Lanvin hi's lately. These are probably the most interesting pairs right now.
