I don't know exactly what he meant by it, but I own both and haven't really figured out a way to wear my ASG X's without feeling like I'm wearing a shoe intended for a child.
Lol they're a really fun shoe but a bit over the top.
Most of the shoes I consider grails are pairs I owned in my childhood and teen years that I have trouble finding now.
95% of what I treasure, no one else would give a damn about
...but strangely whenever I'm wearing a pair of J's I bought just because I get some kid asking me who my "connect"...
How about hype is driving the love for the lows.
The palmers are a very nice shoe, but if they were a GR some of us would have waited for discounts.
The Reds obviously would have never moved the needle as we can see now with them available for discount and sitting everywhere.
