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.

    Cheers,

    The ones I've seen all look like this, with some grey and an extended area of blue on the front of the shoe, and those vintage look more flat. [​IMG]

    Apparently these were only made for Europe, so they are probably hard to get, best price I found was like 70 EUR

    The goal is strictly casual (think denim and plain tees, possibly cargo shorts and plain tees), but still classy. You know, a cut above all the other sneakers out there (so no obvious branding).
    I'm going to recommend the same brand I recommend to everyone: Common Projects. Nothing flashy, ultra-comfortable and really well-made if a little pricey. By far the best sneakers I've ever owned.

    If anyone can find these shoes anywhere in 10.5 or 11D, please let me know as I would greatly appreciate it. I've been trying to source a pair without any success.

    I have to agree with you on this.. I have the grey mids and they are magnificent. Excellent quality and comfort. They look great with slim or straight denim.

    jury?


    Two things I like about those. First is the stitching of the rubber parts to the leathers parts. Most every other shoe the rubber is just glued on there but those are sewn and that's fairly interesting. Second is the excess of eyelets. Way more than the shoe needs, again, interesting. I would be happier with the shoes (and might think of buying a pair) if they didn't do those upside down v's on the side, screws up the shoe to me. I can see their appeal though.

    I guess that's the same model as these crazy PF Flyers with a tyvek and japanese denim upper. I don't think I'd wear them, but they're visually interesting. I'm wary of sneakers with colorways too close to dress shoe-leather, but those are alright.
