Think End were doing the Missonis for 80 quid so Fukers piled in.

Such a good shoe. Always get compliments.

Think it's cause they've got little metal bits contrasting against a dull colour, so look fancy but not too garish.

Wish there was something like that with a bit of a chunkier sole to go with wider leg stuff.

On something like this would be ideal

To replace my battered Wakouwa deck shoes I picked up some Asahi. Cheaper than the Wakouwa and seem identical aside from the upper being white rather than ecru, they are also still made in Japan.

I was on a similar tip recently so picked up these Eras.


Obviously not as authentic as the above but a third of the price and the Pro soles are so comfortable.

Do these fit the same? Found the Wakouwa fit large and was hoping these fit smaller (in between sizes).

I took a 9 in the Wakouwa and the 10 in these (which tends to be my size now for Nike etc) and would say they seem less than a full size larger but hard to say for sure as the Wakouwa are battered / stretched. I can still wear the Wakouwa but a little snug.

There is an old sizing note on Peggs saying go a full size down, but I wouldn't agree with that, I would say they are true. Edit - the shop I bought them from describe them as true as well.

Think people mostly use stockx these days! But that might be for recent hype ones? be good if you've been sitting on dunks this whole time and can catch them going up in value.

This will only work if the shoes are brand new with immaculate boxes. Facebook groups are your best bet by far. As you won’t pay any fees. Drop me a message if you want mate, can steer you in the right direction.

Was just looking at a PM I sent to zoom in 2014 when he offered to buy - told him was waiting for an SB revival - it’s only taken 6 years Laughing out loud Cool

I’m on stock x now checking prices - insane.
