    The black painteds are so ugly. I'd like to see a fit with some of the better Rafstros out there AR, those cracked leather ones are just gross. Black pony hair Rafstro would be fucking killer with the stuff you do

    I think even all black pony would be pretty bad. Needs some matte leather to offset it.

    would buying white destroyed goatskins be a bad idea if I don't want them to get dirty fast? Seems like it would be the worst color to choose if I want them to look the same as new for a while.

    Guys I need help in a big way. I travel a lot, so like to keep the number of shoes I bring with me to a minimum. I have a pair of dress shoes which are a must, but when I'm flying, in more casual situations, or exercising, I'm left wearing Nikes or other athletic shoes which look abysmal.

    Is there such a thing as a baller shoe ($300+), that's cool enough for traveling and exercising, or is working out a no-no across the board for such shoes?

    Cheers!

    I've worked out in my MMM mids but it's just lifting and such, no running on the threadmill though and I realy wouldn't recommend it.

    Honestly, just get some Nike Free that you can roll up into a ball or squish so it doesn't take much space in your luggage and then just have another pair of baller sneakers for lounging or walking around.

    That's what I'm using now - Nike Freerunners. I love them but they're not ballin'.

    Gotta +1 rfx, they won't take up much space.

    My frees are brilliant for running to the gym and working out.

    You don't need baller shoe in the gym, you'll just hurt yourself.

    Shit, I know. I wonder if Raf will go back to making cool stuff again, even his current sneakers selections sucks these days.

    Whatchu talkin' bout?
