Missed a 9.5
Purps isn't my cup of tee
can we all agree the cuffs look horrible with these or is it just me ?
the original black colorway was awesome, the grey and obsidian were nice too.. but these new colors are atrocious im sorry. i cant act like i like them. the simplicity was what kept me interested. the blue heel is ugly they should have kept it all white..tht purple pair is groteske. the 2 newer colorways are ug too...esp since they painted half the midsole. im gonna save my money and buy an obsidian pair. we wont see any simple mers for a while.
i think the Plats are nice but i do agree with the dude that said the solid colors are best.
Now for the colors that just leaked... idk about them
If I didn't already have the Obsidian and Grays, I would be all over the Plats and the Dark Grays, but there's nothing "must have" for me right now from the current collection. If they give us some more solids (maroon, forest green, photo blue) then I'd be sweating this release a bit more.
Honestly, I really just hope people who want them can finally get them. They are definitely a Top 5 shoe for me in my collection.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I think the platinums are great, especially as a base shoe for simple customs. I bought these with the full intention of painting the heel and possible the sock liner. I did a couple ROUGH mock ups, with a black or obsidian sock, black heel, laces, tongue, etc. I went through a lot of combos out of curiosity.
Anyway, below is a simple change to white for the laces and heel which I plan on doing. I might mix a color to match the platinum for the heel if I don't like the contrasting white. Who knows though. I like the white heel for now, but we'll see how that turns out.
It'd be easy enough for anyone to do. All you need is white laces, Angelus, a paint brush, and proper prep work.
