    The pic of the sneaker sucks. I'm sure if we saw more we'd dislike them a little less. G&G still has another 100 years to go before they can attempt to destroy their image ala John Lobb city collection

    You got to admit the last of GG sneakers are miles better than JL's version.

    I'm sure the same client currently has a bespoke pair of GG saddles in the works. With a crepe sole of course :)

    re: the sneakers. i think its cool they did that for a customer, and as long as they dont mass produce things like that, i dont see the harm. its nice to see how far they will extend themselves for a loyal customer.

    i also think the opinion of the SWD crowd, who actually wears things like that, is much more valuable than that of people who dont like sneakers that much to begin. i wonder what they would say about them. i think i will find out.

    Dood. Look at them.

    I hate to look like I'm trashing GG. I really don't want to. Just stick with what you do well pleez. Ironically those sneakers seem to be similar in general shape to the Arran, which is currently my favorite bewt.

    And then where would this forum be? Certainly not. Standards, my dear fellow. Standards.
