    I actually think I like those better as blue-ish shoes like in the original photo... the grey is fine but I like the blue.

    There is a hint of blue to the gray. There's also a nice detail of a thin vertical strip of nylon webbing with three thin blue stripes on the heel counter.

    For those who like Supra, Kr3w recently just release some sneakers. I really like the franklins and jacksons in canvas. Tried an 8.5 jackson at Huf but they were too snug. I might need to find these in a 9 online. http://kr3wdenim.com/collection/footwear/

    Heydays have some great hi tops but they lack something that i cant put my finger on, supra societies in suede have great potential, same with generic surplus. all these three have great potential but lack something IMHO

    They are all vulcanized sole and have unstructured upper bodies. If the soles were stitched on, beit by machine or hand, and if the upper part of the shoe was more structured looking- all of these budget shoes would be on point. The reason for gluing the sole and having an unstructured body all factors into cost, but there are plenty of stitched soled shoes (vans versa) and ones with structured bodies (clae) that look good at a budget price. Also the shoes u mentioned tend to be on the chunky side, whereas the slim profile looks nicer.

    Any love for vans slip-ons?

    No. If you're going to get Vans, get the Authentics.

    Ideas for the type of sneaker I should be looking for for the jeans and button down look? The problem with most sneakers to me is that the white stands out too much and makes it look too athletic. It's like high school kids wearing sneakers with their 'tux' for prom.

    I'm thinking adidas sambas in black with the brown sole but I'm open to ideas.

    To find German Army Trainers go on German ebay and use the following search terms:

    -bundeswehr turnschuhe
    -bundeswehr hallenschuhe
    -bundeswehr sportschuhe

    Be sure to email the seller (I used bablefish to translate) to make sure they ship outside of Germany.


    Could you provide a link to your seller?

    Hey everybody,

    I'm looking for a pair of Vans Chukka Boots (high) in black leather. I figured it'd be a staple that I could get anywhere, but I'm only able to find the Chukka Boot in canvas/suede. Any recommendations? Thanks (sorry if this is the wrong post for this).

    Does ASOS use the same soles as CP? And are they stitched to the shoe as well?

    What are the advantages of a stitched sole over vulcanized? Durability?

    Hey guys. Wanted some opinions about some shoes... I have the opportunity to pick these up but wanted input from SF first. [​IMG] Nike x Fragment All Court low. Kinda seems like an overpriced pair of JP... but still wanted your guys' thoughts on them [​IMG] [​IMG] CP Safari boots. Not sure on the sizing of these, do they run large like the Achilles lows? Lastly, are there any black sneakers that work well with slim jeans? I need a pair of sneakers that are good for being crapped on by Boston winter. Thanks [​IMG]
