I don't know sneaker culture, but those look like they have solid ankle support.Patrick, love the MCA shout out in the post. I had actually typed out a sentence at the end of my post where i reference the stan smiths mentioning that i had gone to see Ad-rock and Mike D talk about their Beastie Boys book in Brooklyn a few weeks ago and Ad-rock came out in khakis and stan smiths and it just reaffirmed my sentiments. but i deleted it.
As a side note, it was a really moving event. Both positive and negative; the sense of grief over Yauch was palpable from both, and it felt a bit like a memorial service, which i don't mean as a negative. You and I are of similar vintage (HS class of '94) and i grew up in an urban environment where hip hop was king. i remember about 1999 telling someone that the Beastie Boys were one of the top 5 most influential musical groups of the 20th century and i got absolutely laughed at. I stand by that statement.
Came real close to buying a pair of these recently, but felt it was a little too "try-hard" as one of my boys likes to say

Working at home today, reached for my pro soft darks, but convinced my self that needed to give some other jeans a turn as my rotation has been a little dominate by the PSDs of late.
