Mmmmmmm, normally quality comes indeed with higher prices, to a certain extent obviously. Higher priced items USUALLY last longer, have better materials and/or more innovative Design. All signs of quality. Thats why people spend more on them.

But you can always find a trade off (or youre lucky with sales) for fewer Dollars.

This if often true, but there are exceptions.


YSL for example. I wanted to buy the rolling whatever they are called, which run upwards of $300 and I just about pulled the trigger on a pair but thankfully didn't because of how shitty the sole was constructed.

I have also purchased a pair of cheap used Justin cowboy boots for 30 bucks (retail is somewhere around 100-180) from a previous owner who had them for at least 3-4 years. They were a bit scuffed up and worn, but the stitching and the soles were still in excellent condition. I wore them for 2-3 years and then sold them on eBay to guy who will probably get another 3-4 years out of them.

You are right thats why I used terms like normally and usually. A lot of my cheaper items surprised me in various dimensions of the spectrum of quality, be it longevity, design, material or whatever. But most of the times, cheaper means a trade off in at least one of those dimensions. E.g. taking the original Bundeswehr trainer into consideration those are really nice concerning design and longevity, but materials are a trade off when comparing to e.g. Margielas.

What are people thoguhts about RO trainers? Strictly opinion I am not going to cop. I am just curious about people feeling about them?

 

 

I personally like them.  Would never be pull them off but I think they are fucking dope.

they're dope to look at, but i've never liked how they look worn.

post #2431 of 2600

^^Can work with some outfits. But I am not a fan of either the trainers nor the outfits they work with.

post #2432 of 2600

To me, they are just heinous in every way. 

I'm just allergic to thick soles and those are just fucking huge.

The curved front part also is a no go for me.

 

Maybe with a thinner sole they could work...maybe... but for now it's 1000xNO.

 

I'm looking for cp's but I still don't know if I will still like them once worn...

post #2433 of 2600

Thats how I felt when i first set sight on them, but now I am really diggin them.  

post #2434 of 2600

agree with saddock on the thick sole...

and i also dont like the "nike-like" stripes of some pairs.

post #2435 of 2600

Dont go that way...

 

^^CPs are the shit, along with Margiela the best understatement you can get with trainers/sneakers. Buy some already before copping more Diorz.

post #2436 of 2600

lol, I think you misunderstood what I meant. I am not going to cop the RO's.  

 

 

I am still deliberating about buying trainers. I already have to many shoes to justify another pair. Granted none are trainers but I think more in love with how they look on others.  I like the courts and low top achilles but I am not sure if they are really my style.

Hey does anybody here own a pair of the YSL rollings sneakers? How do they fit? Hows the quality? in your opinion are they worth the money.
 

I wear converse chucks in- 8

john varvatos converse in 8.5

nike 9

vans 9

 

what size would I have to get for these? 42 or 41? Please help out.

post #2442 of 2600

I don't own any Rollings but here is what I have read:

 

1. Fit = pretty TTS.

2. Quality = not that great. The sole is glued on... that should be enough to tell you about quality.

3. Worth the money = IMO no. There are a lot of better shoes out there, quality-wise and aesthetic-wise, in that price range. YSL sneakers have a great silhouette, but from the sounds of it, they won't last long enough to justify spending ~$300 on compared to the many other options.

post #2443 of 2600

interesting. any opinions on what shoes are a better buy that has the same style as these?

post #2444 of 2600

Just picked these Monk's up as an alternative to my basic black Florsheim dress shoes; I believe they are '06-'07ish but got an awesome deal and they're NWB:

I bought these diesel boots off of Ssense.com , I kind of have wide feet so are they alright for me? Also I read earlier about Diesel's boot quality, are these known for any sole problems?
