    winter is coming quickly where I live and I've probably got a month tops before it snows. As of right now, I pretty much live in my filthy white canvas (USA made) Jack Purcells. Wear them about 90% of the time. However, they won't cut it once the bad weather rolls in.

    I'm looking for recommendations for a simple, slim, classically styled, leather (non perforated for obvious reasons) pair of hi tops.

    Springcourts are awesome but I can't find anywhere to get them online. Chucks are the obvious answer but I already have a pair and they aren't really comfortable.

    any suggestions?

    Stels carries Springcourts, or did, and I believe that they had the white leather hightop. They do not have a webstore, but will do phone orders.

    I have a pair of white leather chuck lows that I really like. They have a baby blue accent/running stripe; it goes rather well with the indigo that's rubbing off from my jeans. Gives them a bit more character than your generic pair of chucks imo.

    You can try to find some Common Project his, if nom de guerre has them/ships. Besides that I think you might be hardpressed to find a decent pair of stylish white hi tops. Unless you go for a dunk, or maybe an adidas hi, and the Springcourt which you already mentioned. I'd suggest Dior and such, but I'm guessing thats on the high side.

    Anyway, I have a pair of hi top leather chucks for sale if you change your mind about them. All white, like this: http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/7618733/c/46276.html
    A lot cheaper, of course.

    thanks. I emailed Stels but I'm not sure if they'd be willing to ship to Canada (probably not).

    ugh don't tempt me [​IMG] CPs are exactly what I'm looking for, but the price is way too high for me.

    If you wore Common Projects sneakers out in the salty-ass filthy dirty sludgy snow I'll kill you.

    (although we don't get as salt happy here in Alberta)

    good choice, though they aren't as slim as I like. I might have to settle for them if it snows soon.

    I got a pair of perforated white springcourt hightops from someone on the other board and they are pretty nice. I think that's a good choice.
