thanks for all the compliments, I think the sneakers balance out the skirt well, and it made me feel less like a tribal warrior when pairing them in this manner. I dunno what to say to this these are definitely older iteration ones, fucking love them. I had a dilemma where I couldnt stand the staple issues with the older ones, but I couldn't live with the newer designed ones. However, I got these for a very good price so I just said fuck it i'll figure out how to increase the longevity of the sneakers. The back will need some work, probably a rubber cap, lol.
