I've had half a dozen pairs of CP over the years and a couple pairs from cheaper brands and to be honest can't say I've noticed a different in quality between them. Think I'd struggle to pay 300 notes for CP.

I like the new BBalls though with the thicker sole.

Can you be more specific about knockoffs. Do you mean with same soles or just minimalist design sneakers?

All cp's I own are greater quality and more comfortable than most others in similar style and price range.

How comfortable they are has always been an enquiry of mine, since, imo, they look uncomfortable.

anywhere ever do CP on sale? or is it like stoney & never goes on sale?

copped all my cps at around +/- 200 (mostly less) and if u consider resell value even for used ones and build quality (they last forever) it's an amazing price.
2-3 years ago u got every model u wanted at half price, but i guess instagram fucked that up Laughing out loud

Cool Never thought I would be impressed by sewing.

They are beautiful too, those with the black boost sole would be perfect.

What retailers tend to get the limited Ultra Boosts? Think these are out in the states but cant see them here yet.

exactly. just gotta lurk hard and pounce at correct opportunity. never paid full price for cps, always get 25-50% off. even got white bballs from harveyt nichols at 35% off

i love CPs, the simplicity and materials make them amazing. and they really do last ages as well. i am also a sucker for the gold numbers

Varnoir, what's special about those boosts?

Futurecraft look really nice in the all white - Will be the new boosts when they release. .

I know it's been asked about a million times but TTS on boosts or 0.5 up? Will be gym/walking trainers so wanting a little bit of room.

^ they aren't GR, so fewer retailers in smaller numbers and sell out quicker.

Yeah this is what I need this year. Racers are dead now so I need a new comfy trainer.

Half size up from Nike size with most adidas for me, boosts sometimes even a size up.

The white boost sole looks good, but once it gets dirty its near enough impossible to get clean, plus I have about 5 pairs of various boosts, all white soles.

Asics X RC look pretty cool.

I'm in the finding CP's uncomfortable camp. Really don't know why I find them so painful to wear, the back rubs quite badly for me on the two pairs I have as it seems really rigid/hard. Probably fucked up the sizing tbh.
