1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No fucking idea, my understanding is that it concerns #menswear so we don't even wanna go there, kinda like with juggalos or lacrosse players.

    I bought some GATs during the eboutique sale and haven't worn them once, I might sell them actually since although they fit me they look so small (size 39). I also don't see what's so special about them after handling them in person.

    well I got these very cheap. there's nothing super 'special' about them, especially if you're handled other nice sneakers.

    99.99999999999% of the folks that purchased Chucks never saw Chuck Taylor play anywhere or knew he played during the 20s and 30s.

    How do you guys go about wearing $250+ sneakers? I wear my OG GATs to college and such and people step on my shoes all the time. If I were wearing CPs or MMM GATs I would probably flip shit.

    At the end of the day they are still just sneakers.

    Take up more space in the world and stop getting stepped on. I ride packed subways everyday and never get stepped on.

    GATs are easily the most comfortable "baller" sneakers that I've owned (CP, Buttero, Raf) and more so than the Lanvins and Balenciagas I've tried on.

    Lace up one foot at a time. What are you in elementary school where the kids step on your new shoes?

    Just spent the past 2 hours watching old nba highlights ie dr j, darryl dawkins, dominique wilkins, shawn kemp, kevin johnson, vince carter etc.

    I played cricket in my CPs last night.

    Was bowled a yorker and now they have a red mark and I have a bruised toe.

    well, two things. one, they're sneakers, they'll get fucked up, no big deal (and in fact they look better fucked up). and two, i don't really lead a life in which people are stepping all over me, so..

    I'd call them immediately. Same thing happened to me -- earlier this month, I placed an order, the payment went through, and the status was stuck on 'waiting to be fulfilled' for a few days, even though I chose a fast shipping option. I called for a few days, never even reached an answering machine. Finally reached someone who went and assembled my order while we spoke (apparently, they hadn't been put on hold when I paid).

    I had to throw away a pair of gats once because I got too drunk and threw up all over them. At the end of the day they're just shoes, if you're too worried about getting them dirty then maybe buy cheaper shoes.

    That fact that GATs are on the adidas samba sole is pretty weak The first painted ones were okay, but still It's like okay so you basically put a half-assed effort into designing the sneaker.
