    I got a 43.5.


    What would even be the minimum price on baller shoes/boots? Like $700? 1k? It would be an interesting thread indeed. I nominate Eck to start one!


    I think 700usd is fine, we could call it something like: The official BALLER boot/shoe thread 700usd minimum

    What do you guys think?

    ^That's cool. I don't want sneakers in there though, there's already a sneaker thread. So in the description make sure you stipulate it's like for boots/derbies/etc. and NO dress shoes. That'll be dumb to see a 2k pair of Augustas and then some bozo from MC comes in and posts John Lobbs cuz he wants to feel like a baller.

    So pretty much a baller version of this thread? http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=87638
    LMAO at the first two pictures in that thread. *I can't wait until RFX and E share Presidency of the 'Baller Shoe Club' and anybody that qualifies (3+ baller pairs?) and posts a picture to help the threads can have a cool line in their signature. Hahahaha

    I've never really figured it out but is the 300 figure on the sneaker thread msrp or what street prices are like? I mean guidi hits 700 on sale/clearance. Aldens boots certainly climb pretty high. I think 500 street price is a pretty good rule of thumb... but 700-1000 retail is definitely a bit more baller [​IMG]

    Well I doubt you guys police the postings that closely anyways and I'm sure styleforum-style ridicule will scare away the plebes.


    I'm fine with whatever- I'll wait for others to chime in: 700 or 500usd? I personally don't care to police it at all-

    It's all in fun so just make it $700 minimum and go from there.

    I have no horse in this, but if you make the limit $500 you're going to get tons of PS and Aldens in there. If you want to make it more exclusive (i.e. interesting), go for $700.
