    I have a couple pairs of shoes that are over 5 or even 10, they're fine. Sneakers not so much, I went through gats and others slowly but surely, they don't last that long...

    New DIY project involving my Ironheart denim moto jacket:

    [​IMG]


    There are 3 options:

    1) Thornproof the whole thing
    2) Overpaint the entire thing black
    3) Paint the arms, and thornproof the body, mimicking hat "leather sleeves on a fabric body" look.

    Opinions sought.

    I have a lot of shoes, and even then they were pretty busted for the final year or so. The sole actually held up quite well but the stitches bust in the same way they do on chucks.

    wore right through the sole on the margielas.

    I just buy chucks now to be honest. They fit with my current tastes. I was never a big sneaker guy anyway. The other ones I like a puma clydes and stan smiths.

    I would love some CP Bballs though. the original ones.

    I have always been a nike guy and I wear them pretty hard. Esp on vacations when I trek for a long time. Surprisingly most of my nikes hold up well and I have no expectations for nike.

    Currently I want a nice leather sneaker and today in Maas stacks I saw CPs which I never considered until today because I thought they looked good.

    Are they worth the $400 retail or worth looking around for a deal?
    @hendrix what is sizing like?

    Sorta leaning that way right now. I think with a fairly thin coat, since denim is not as textured as sashiko.

    I had this crazy idea that I'd thornproof it, to make it water repellent, and then coating it with a very thin layer of paint, so that it flakes off, like the Margiela Converse. However, while I am okay at both using fabric paint and waxes and other treatments, that particular doulbe treatment seems... fraught with danger, to say the least.

    Also flirting with the idea of sewing on a all black prowling tiger patch, but I can't find one that looks cool.

    Honestly, if you are thinking of Common Projects, think of alternatives like Epaulet's, or something that is a little more interesting, like ETQ Amsterdam. I think that Common Projects are a good standard sneaker, but I feel that in 2014, there are many options out there.
