    They're not impressive at all in real life. There's plenty of other chuckalikes, leather and otherwise, that are much better.

    do you really think you couldn't get infinitely better sneakers if you just saved up?

    I need to kop some new sneakers for next spring/summer. looking for white lows. Which ones? (or recommend something else): all star cup [​IMG] all star leather [​IMG] jack purcell leather [​IMG] jack purcell canvas [​IMG] vans authentic [​IMG] vans era [​IMG] or am I thinking too much about this because they are all simple white sneakers?

    vans eras make you look like a dead-end 30 year old frat bro in training. Really, though, they're all-white sneakers. Some CP's might pop up, or something - I'd sit on it.

    edit: it's not as though they can't look acceptable, with slim, trim shorts and a short sleeve button down or something.

    Ok. I think I'm between the vans authentic and the jack purcell canvas. I hated the toe cap on the jack purcell at first but it has really grown on me.

    thanks for the input. I'll probably go with those. I have skinny legs and fear the purcells might lead to a clown shoe look on me. Plus the authentics are cheap as hell.

    Some GAT-alikes on yoox:

    Have no idea how quality is on this, but they certainly can't be any worse than the cheap ones from German eBay.


    just bought a pair in 12, hopefully they run tts.
