    Does anyone else kind of hate the white cap-toe on the chucks? They always make me think of them like clown shoes.

    yes

    i hate chucks in general though. i think they look terrible.

    I really like my YSL Rolling in black patent. Other then some few exceptions I like my sneakers simple. Like the all white converse in first post here.

    Go to german ebay, use google translater and search for one of these -bundeswehr turnschuhe
    -bundeswehr hallenschuhe
    -bundeswehr sportschuhe


    Thats to get the german army surplus ones which are quite cheap I got mine for about $50 but had to look around for a while

    And you can get the Adidas ones here for $86

    Weird, I'd rather wear Chucks than GATs. (response to "chucks look like clown shoes").

    I can't get over the black lip on the toe of the Converse JPs and I haven't been able to find any John Varvatos Converse i've liked since the white multi eyelet version
