white achilles cp's are probably the most boring footwear at the moment

From a glance at the greglauren site it looks way better than Kapital. You telling me this jacket isn't nice? Especially with that shirt. Quality is probably on par with Paul Harnden or better.

I could easily justify buying this shirt too, if I found it at $400. Don't you think Band of Outsiders with your CP sneaks has gotten OLD???

classic doesn’t mean good?

chucks/vans/stans >>> cp
not at all. CP's are built way better. Believe me...if you spend the day pounding the pavement of NYC you don't want chucks/vans/stans on your feet...I've worn all of them and CP's are built way better...if they justify the cost is debatable...but wear wise it's not even close.

@London I also live in nyc. If you want comfort and durability cp’s are not it lol; all 3 of the more “classic” and cheaper options are better in those aspects.

also i think you are confusing classic with minimalist...

Ok, so the first is $50, and the Second is $425. Do the cps have zen bamboo soles with a pillow that wraps around your toes? Comfort isn't why they cost that. But keep shooting yourself in the foot. Justified cost really comes down to what you are willing to spend. It's all subjective.
