Opinions on Matinique and Vagabond sneakers?

Hello everyone,

First post here. Looking for some new sneakers to replace my Stan Smiths, I really like Common Projects, but they are a bit out of my price range at the moment. My budget is around £100, and they will be an everyday sneaker.

I have seen a couple that I like, but never heard of the brands before, and unsure on quality (I understand I won't get a CP / Koio / Svennsons quality for under £100).

The two that have caught my eye are the Matinique New Gibson and the Vagabond Paul. The Matinique I have found discounted from £115 to £93, and the Vagabond I have found discounted from £85 to £67.

These are the 2 I am looking at:

I believe the Vagabond are made in South East Asia (Company is Swedish), and the Manitique are made in Portugal (Company is Danish). They both look like a nice minimal sneaker, which is what I am looking for, but under £100.

Any info on either would be much appreciated.
