All this Stan Smith hype is going well over my head. Can someone explain the attraction?

CP have perfected the overpriced minimalist white sneaker and we all have a pair. What do Adidas/Raf/Barneys have to offer?

They aren't overpriced and have a slightly different aesthetic as well.

None of the collabs look as good as the originals in my eyes.

$150/ £92 is hardly overpriced. They are a classic sneaker, this version are made with premium leather, plus the unbranded (DSM) version are £120 and you are not going to see the tongue when worn anyway. Perhaps I won't post a pic when they arrive after all Oops

The last time I checked they don't sell the likes of Goyard in House of Fraser.

Don't get the hype for all these Stan Smiths collabs, agree that most, if not all of them, are pointless and overpriced.

But the original ones are nice, and in my eyes have a different aesthetic compared to that of CPs.

Visvim supposedly perfected the 7 hole work boot and yet people still buy Red Wings- sometimes people just want the OG stuff. Plus the shape of the originals is often different to CPs (like the Stans and those fucking awful AF1s they did recently).

I'm as much a fashion victim as the rest of this cunt casino but all these new Stans really are a case of emperors new clothes.

They aren't as elegant as CPs and don't have the old school tennis shoe aesthetic of Spring Court or Superga. They fall in between and without the branding look like a Sport Direct Lonsdale special.

The Glasgow store has Hermes, Gucci, Prada and Miu Miu boutiques in it.

Barneys is an awful name though.
