1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Other than being white I'm not seeing much similarity...

    I may have exaggerated a bit. But I wouldn't call them boring, simple is a better word IMO. I cant think of a shoe that is as similar as the summer achilles CP's from last year....not that I have looked very hard.

    Sounds like someone has the pictured CPs and is feeling very wronged. Oh so very wronged.

    What do all three shoes posted so far have in common? They're all ugly.

    Man, I'm all for CP ripoffs. Fuck $400 simple ass sneakers that crease worse than retro Air Jordans after you put your feet in 'em.

    ...That said, I've wanted the last version of those CPs in the original post (without perforated leather) pretty bad -_-.

    I'm not saying this in a bad way but you could say the same thing about many sf-approved sneakers.

    Not sure if they are worth $400 bills, but I got my pair of CPs for a little less then $270 on ebay (vintage low navy summer achilles). You can find common projects ranging from 200-300 dollars if you look hard enough brosef. http://cgi.ebay.com/COMMON-PROJECTS-...item3a65a7ae65 (these are going for 185 right now for example). I still think they look similar, but to each his own. Edit: Changed the common project pic cause I just pep'ed it was the perforated leather one.

    Yeah haha I actually eBay'd CPs right after I posted. Can't afford ANYTHING right now though, I'm actually trying to borrow money from my bro to cop a damn shirt off SuFu. I'm just a broke ass soon-to-be college grad who enjoys webpage shopping and whose odd job hasn't given him hours since February...

    And who really should get back to studying but really doesn't want to.

    You do realise that if you start a 'this sneaker looks like that' argument.. it will be a long arguement..?

    I thought CPs were some kind of adidas stan smith/ rod laver etc etc back when I first saw them..

    I really DO hope that someone copies the CP properly though.

    Either that or Nike/Adidas just re-release some OG shoe that CPs they made ages ago that looks identical.
