Printed sneakers now? Yes, since we’re on the topic of printed shirts from last week.

Behold! Adidas makes a standout black and white printed sneaker for a easy $120. I mean $80.

Shit, now $70. You get the idea. I bought ‘em, filled them with SuperFeet, and haven’t took them off my paws since.

Black and white Stan Smith sneakers by Adidas, easy + simple Timex Weekender watch ($30 for the best watch ever), vintage leather pants from San Diego (cop a legit pair here, lol), plain white tee by Hanes (similar), and Uniqlo x Urban Sweats hoodie.

I couldn’t resist picking these up and swapping them out because my Nike polka dot ones were getting some serious wear.

Styling suggestions:

  • Keep it simple. Wear all black, white, and grey.
  • Match your ankle socks. And just wear black.
  • Clean them. Go buy your local Foot Locker and pick up an easy $10 cleaner. Keep ‘em fresh!
  • Say thank you. Because people will compliment and ask where you got the great shoes, dope kicks, fly feet. Whatever.

Feeling black, grey, & white? Cool, I’ve got a few favorites below the jump –>

So, where are my coins going this month? Not on a big fat date or a weekend away. Fashion over function!!!!—ing in social settings, man! Behold, my almost reasonable list of sneakers that I’ve got my eye on instead of 2-for-1 apps and bullshit cocktails from a hip new bar with a subpar Tinder fling.

Curious crackling Converse

Pull and peel, scratch and sniff, shake and bake.

These Converse Jack Purcell x Maison Martin Margiela painted sneakers crack and chip as time goes on AS TIME FREAKING GOES ON and transform into a red pair of sneakers.

According to Mr. Porter product description of doom: “Process is just as important as form for Parisian label Maison Martin Margiela, and these Converse sneakers have been hand-painted over the outside to crack and chip with use, revealing a unique finish. Beneath is a pair of red leather Jack Purcells, they offer discreet athletic comfort as well as forward-looking design.”

Alternate ending: you skip the time traveling, cop a pair of these classic red chucks and drop some White-Out stolen from the office supply closet:
