    Just delivered, J.Crew for Sperry "Washed" Topsiders. They look great, the washed look gets rid of the new "plastic-like" shine that the originals have.

    Didn't know about this collab until you posted these. Look decent, but a similar effect can be had with some leather conditioner, paper towel, and a few days of wear for those looking for a cheaper alternative.

    These were actually cheaper than the original Sperrys if you can believe it. $50 shipped from J.Crew, I think the Original Sperrys are going for around $65 give or take.

    Interesting, they had to be on one of J Crew's eventual sales though. I find it hard to believe they could have retailed for $50 in the collab. But, it sounds like you got a pretty decent deal then. Always a good thing.

    ^ Very very nice SoCal. I wanted a bag in that really dark eggplant, but could never find one.

    Handwriting on the insole would suggest they're made by Lattanzi ?

    I like shoes even more now that I get a better sense of the color, quite interesting. From your initially cell pics I thought it was just a washed out black color, but this is very cool.

    I know it's not polite to talk about money, but how much do those JS run?

    JS shoe prices don't always run that high, but lattanzi do.
