    I edited my post with one of more of my style. I say wear what the fuck you want and be comfortable. I do still love my red wing iron rangers and timbs though. My brother on the right in that pic is an everyday, weather permitting Harley rider with some ape hangers.

    What does “stacked pants” mean?
    If I can wear high top vans you can wear those.

    you are much cooler than me...

    I wear my multi color flyknit racers all the time but my wife laughed when I was looking at the high tops like I was trying to hard.

    It’s when your jeans hit the top of your mid to high top shoes and “stack” or bunch up. That’s a good thing. You don’t want to overdue it but if your pants are hitting you perfect at the ankles then with high or mid top that should bunch up at the top and “stack”. To be really “fashion” now is to cut them above the ankles exactly like the punk rock/skater 90’s look. Hell that’s how Lebron and all kinds of pro athletes roll now looking like some skater ska punks pants back in the day

    Seriously there is no reason never to buy a pair of Chucks you want. I have Chucks I wear out and I only lift in either a pair of low top all black Chuck or white high top. Unless you’re running I’ve found no reason to not wear Chucks whether it be for the gym or because they are a timeless fashionable shoe.

    Chucks were the cheap cool shoe that growing up working class I could afford.

    They’re the best gym shoe and it’s not even debatable and I’ll fist fight over it. “What shoes should I get for this or that” Chucks. I have expensive powerlifting shoes but my Chucks have surpassed them. Even for casual lifters that aren’t doing running for cardio, Chucks. I say that because Vans never fit me right. I have a narrow heel and they just never felt right so I was a Chucks guy. My brother is a Vans bro. He’s bigger and stronger than me so take that as you will

    I love Vans. I have several pairs, but they just don’t fit my foot as well as Chucks. I have a narrow heel and always had problems with finding dress shoes that fit so that may be a huge factor. I can and do wear Vans but I can’t work out in them if that makes sense. My brother only works out in Vans. It’s the cut of the shoe.

    Just sold my mauves, they felt too bulky for me to justify wearing all the time. I live in LA and see the loose/stack all the time, think I need to suck it up and get used wearing shoes with loose laces.

    I hated on the wave runners, but I love my mauves. I love the 700 static’s but fuck that resale price and I’m not even looking at the geode with having the mauves. I do like the inertia’s though.

    Also yes, I still buy Yeezy even after cussing his dumbass for being a goddamn Trump supporter. I’m as anti Trump as they come and Kanye is a fucking moron for hitching himself to his horrible wagon. I like his shoes. I like his socks. I like his clothes. They’re are a very high quality product. They’re all exceptional in terms of product and production. He is trash for his statements regarding trump and he needs to get back on his meds but that’s no excuse to the damage he’s done to his community with his ignorant statements.

    Not trying to change your mind but most people that got those didn't like them. The toebox is furry, where the og wasn't. Hell people took clippers to them and shaved them lol. And it's old shape. You can spend your money on something better.

    Different strokes. The quality on this one is A+ though. It's a different type mesh. Almost has a metallic feel to it.

    I know that drill. Bought my wife a LV bag as a "push present" a few weeks before our daughter was born. She literally looked at me and said "I know better. What shoes are you buying?"

    Haven’t bought any for the daughter due in early May, but as you saw, Michigan gets wild in the winter. My girl already has that patagucci line all set for next winter. Will have to build the shoe collection now.

    Yea but it's a collector piece. They had a regular Parra Air Max 1 that sells for around $400 but the one above is the Friends and Family. I highly doubt I get it at the $1700. Just throwing a lowball offer and seeing if he bites. This pair will be $5k or more in a few years. His original F&F pair sells for $15k now but they only made 24 of those. 250 of these.

    For someone who is really just looking at getting some decent looking comfortable kicks and not look like a dumbass in them, this is really becoming a fascinating learning experience.

    I know there are all types of sub-cultures out there but can’t say I would have ever thought shoes would be this big. My son and tidbit son are sneaker heads but don’t think they are as into as you guys. They do brag about being able to wear a different shoe every day of the month if they want.

    I loved shoes as a kid and then got out of them in my mid to late 20's. I didn't follow them for over a decade. About 3 years ago I stumbled into this thread and I was blown away. 3 years later I have a problem. It's fun though. It's more collecting than anything, at least for me. I loved collecting baseball cards as a kid and this is kinda like that. When 254 pairs were made and they only released in Amsterdam in 2009, it's fun trying to track a pair down. It's not even really the money, it's the hunt.

    I like shoes too. Just not sneakers I have probably about 15 pairs a combination of boots sneakers and workout. Not to stereotype but growing up where I did made it necessary as a kid to have a decent shoe game. I just got out of it because I didn’t like how they looked on me with the way I dress.

    Off white prestos. That’s my next big splurge. I’m just waiting on a pair of off white’s that I have to have or else I’m gonna spend the money on the Chicago Jordan 1’s.
