    Any thoughts on these Vaider Low Supras? [​IMG] I like the black ones as well, but they say they're made out of "Black Perf Tuf" as opposed to the grey full grain leather ones. Anyone know what this means?

    Right, that's just what I was asking is all -- what the SF-approval encompasses, exactly.

    That's fine, it just means I'll probably end up spending more time browsing the baller sneaker thread instead, because that's more my style (though unfortunately not my price range).


    Yeah, its hard to tell whats sf approved. But a lot of the baller sneakers are toned down too (like MMM GAT's and CPs). Basically anything with a "clean' design gets the thumbs up.

    I mean, If you want to wear shoes that look like a horse on a diet of skittles, Shit directly on your feet. By all means.

    The "Tuf" Material is made solely for skating, Looks pretty bad irl. I'm generally not a fan of hypebeast brands, But those look extremely descent.

    Not loving the profile, but looking for some beater red sneaks. Anyone handle these in person?

    I got the all-black Heutchys, and they suck. I meant to return them, but slept on it and missed out on the 21-day mark. They don't look bad, IMO, but they're unlined, which makes them chafe pretty bad, and they rub of black on your socks and pants. The worst part, though, is the toe cap, which makes them crease in the wrong place and rub against your feet in a really awful way. Stay far, far away from these.

    Ah, I thought they were high tops. Can anyone recommend a pair of black high tops that are somewhat slim and preferably leather?

    No such thing as a PF Flyers Albin Hi, is there? Didn't see it listed on the web site.

    I don't think so, or at least I couldn't find anything with my goolging skills.

    I think the Center Hi model is the albin high top.

    EDIT: Nope. sorry, got it confused with another.

    "extremely decent" is an odd pairing of words

    I see. Where can one buy these shoes? It seems like Supra doesn't actually sell shoes through their own site, only through distributors. I don't have any distributors near me (I live in Maryland). Any thoughts?

    I wish these Adidas were still in production.

    Wish I could've gotten my hands on a pair of those. Also, I'm sure someone has already posted, but wow: [​IMG] I'll probably end up getting a pair of these at some point: [​IMG] Most likely the all-black (not the oiled suede w/white sole). I forget, did anyone say they had/had handled a pair?
