    I really like mine (and wearing them now.). They are also ridiculously impractical and have serious construction issues. Not like, that they are badly made, but that sythetics are super useful in sneakers for a reason.

    I'm aware that they're copied. Never said they weren't copied at all, just not to the extent of something like Chucks and Stan Smith clones you see everywhere.

    Buying way too much Undercover lately. N(N) has a lot of hits but a ton of misses.

    Part of the coolness is that he couldn't have. I've been looking at a Japanese webstores a lot, lately, and the breadth of their buys often make things extra interesting. It shows complexity and personality.

    What would you prefer to discuss?

    (and then, maybe we could discuss it in the photo thread? I am so guilty of neglecting it - I have a lot of stuff I could talk about, starting to do some printing and self-publishing at the moment, now know a lot about film, so much to discuss and share....)

    I would just spend 20 minutes a day looking at photos, on Flickr, on tumblr, etc. You'll see garbage and you'll see great stuff, but I've found the process of actually looking St photos far more useful than reading I'll informed gear heads arguing about stuff they don't understand

    I want to plug my brothers photography website now (landscape mostly) but it's not a forum and I know I'm heavily biased so it would probably just come off as bad taste. I don't know shit about photography personally though.

    Post it up - it's not bad taste to say here's something I like check it out!

    I'll bump the photo thread when I get home and can post up some photos and wax lyrical about other things.

    The amount of people wearing Stans in Paris is insane. Half the people in a shop like Merci are wearing them. Still cool though. I dig 'em.

    Good question. I guess the RFT thread, but photography instead. Inspiration, photographers, news, business of photography, etc.

    Random Photography Thoughts instead of What Are You Shooting Today.

    Will bump the photo thread soon with thoughts.


    Bit surprised to hear that Flickr still exists tbh. Kinda stopped going there after yahoo(?) bought it.


    Plug away.
