      30 is the absolute cutoff for dressing like a tryhard

      >30 year old in converse
      “Yes Im a pedo how did you guess?”

      Wear boots, you infantile negrified gay. The only people who should wear clown sneakers like those are colored people with criminal and beastly proclivities. If you are a normal man over 20 and still wear sneakers for anything beyond running and gym, then you should consider transitioning.

      lol at the blatant insecurity of these age gays, which is absolutely astounding. these are the types of who start letting their bodies go to shit by 35 and look 50 while balding and greying, all caused purely by stress because, "can’t wear sneakers after 20!" etc.

      OP, do not listen to these gays. Genuinely feel sorry for them for their chains & insecurities, instead. Personally I believe Rick Owens clothing is absolutely gaygy beyond comprehension, but if wearing them is gonna make you feel good (like, actually good; not just lying to yourself), then you should get them if you want. Also to note, I give this advice as a staunch right-winger, too; not some blue haired tranny who’s been brainwashed just as badly as the age gays quoted above. Lol.

      ITS NOT heckING FAIR

      Same. Nobody looks at me anyway so I can get as wacky as I like. Problem is I’ve not worn clothing fit for ricks since 2013.
      I finally visited a country that had rick and had enough geos in stock that I could get properly sized. They were usually out of stock when I went places. I bought a pair of black/milk geos at the ginza boutique.
      I’ve been wearing boots for the past 15 years. Geos are more like boots than sneakers in my eyes.
      I’m thinking of picking up some fakes from aliexpress to compare and see whether or not I wasted nearly $1k.
      Are dreamboxes still a thing?

      If the soles on these things are as fragile as people make them out to be I’ll have to find something to protect the heels since I don’t live anywhere near that one cobbler that can actually resole geos.

    I honestly never got the appeal of Ramones. Rick Owens has so many cool and interesting designs, usually made from thick leather like the geo baskets, the doc martin boots or pic related for only 200 bucks

    Meanwhile the Ramones are just a canvas converse with slightly thicker soles and cost 700 retail and 1000+ on the aftermarket

    the bulbous toe cap. it makes you look like a goth clown going bowling. its such a normal regular shoe until you look at it for more than 2 and a half seconds. thats how long it takes to figure out if theres something really really wrong with you or maybe you might actually be onto something in this crazy thing called life. its a vibe check

        idk these are real mainlines here and the overhead view looks the same in the video. side profile looked the same also. i think these are a new batch because they’re from ss24. basically each generation of reps get progressively more accurate since they fix each little error until they finally become 1:1. thats basically what happened with nike dunks. you can’t even tell a difference with them anymore

          Well noone is going to be inspecting your shoes with callipers and magnifying glass. There’s nothing wrong with getting them if you like them, just don’t expect them to be a perfect clone of the real thing. I’ve more or less stopped buying fake clothes outside a handful of things I can’t justify retail for because I’m usually underwhelmed when I receive them, not that that doesn’t happen with real stuff too.

            i only bought reps once but i was pretty impressed with it. i vetted hard tho researched every little detail and my seller sent me a bunch of high quality pics to green light them or not before shipping them to me. i knew exactly what was being sent to me. i don’t know if this is what you did but i wouldn’t just be like heck it and order off dhgate you got to know who is reputable first

            Yeah, of course. I’ve been involved with fake clothing since 2014, and I bought those ramones in 2018 which were the best canvas ones available at the time. I’d rather just buy real stuff that I prefer than #ARCHIVE #FIRE #GRAILZ jeans number 94218654524022. All the fakes produced of my favourite brand are terrible now once the handful of stores that did produce good ones shut down too, which doesn’t help.

            i can’t really speak on clothing but with shoes anything that comes out of a mould, like the outsole, is usually 1:1 or close to perfect. that to me is always suprisingly good. rep kobe 6’s are insane quality and the design is so complex and detailed. but anything that needs to be stitched thats where you start seeing errors either incorrect orientation (slightly diagonal) or incorrect spacing (too far to one side). but my cope is you see errors like that in retail also unless its really bad in which case its your fault for green lighting that pair. but yeah i feel like with reps you would want to just stick to shoes or wallets and shit like that.

          Fake ramones are always dead obvious. I’ve never seen a decent pair of fakes in the flesh.
          It’s understandable why people buy the reps though, they’re very overpriced.
          But yeah everyone knows you’re wearing fakes.

          • Anonymous says:

            On close inspection there’s many issues, stitching is good. But the cuts, lace colour and worse quality of leather are obvious. The inside of the eyelets differs from legit RO. The underside of the insole is not shown.
            But these are not going to be visual to random people, and only relevant if you’re trying to resell them as legit.

            As said by

            Why are you on /fashion/?

            the toebox, and shoe construction is always the dead giveaway.
            Not only does the toebox look off, look at how the tongue collapses and creases.
            As fake ramones begin to age the cheap rubber used may not contrast with the toe box like on legit pairs. Will the leather develop those fine creases like on calf leather? Will the laces get stained by the dye like on legit pairs?

            Keep in mind when purchasing you get what you’re given, and the display videos always show the best version of the shoe.

            If it’s between buying legit, or fake, go with secondhand. Older models are better quality and look better. heck Rick Owens and China.

            To be fair if fakes age badly I can just throw them out and buy a new fake, I can do this five times for the price of a legit pair

          • Anonymous says:

            Throwing them out if they don’t "look legit" as they age is pretty wasteful and consumerist anon. They won’t look legit out of the box.
            In terms of construction they’ll probably be fine, and can be repaired by a cobbler if necessary.

            i don’t understand what you mean by "cuts" and i dont think you do either. you are free to explain yourself on that. i’ve seen the different inner eyelets on the fake ricks before but these don’t have that. like i said these look like a newer batch to me. theres a guy on the rick reddit re-soleing his ricks with rep ricks which is a really smart idea imo
            >https://www.reddit.com/r/Rickowens/comments/1cr66du/rick_owees_sole_restoration_attempt_pt2/
            he measured both and confirmed the dimensions match up and says the laces quality is actually legit
            maybe the leather is less quality? i can’t really tell without touching it. visually they look the same to me because you have to remember mainlines come is so many different types of leathers. the leather textures you get on mainlines are always different from one to the other
            but honestly you sound like someone who formed an opinion about reps like 10 years ago and dont really understand how it works now. when you order you have to green light the pair they send you before they send it to you by quality checking several pics of the exact item you’re ordering. you don’t just order and hope for the best. it doesn’t work like that.

            See picrel, look at the patch, look at the tongue. The cuts are off.
            The eyelets are not the same as RO. Look.
            The shoe is collapsing on itself, good leather has a stiffness to it and softens up after prolonged wear.
            Did you look at the reps he bought? Did you look at how the sole is noticeably different? Waow they got 20c lace quality good, impressive.
            You seem to be blind, so looking at images sent by the distributor, whether faithful or not doesn’t matter.

            when you say "the cuts are off" i have no idea what that means. what does that actually mean? you’re not being specific. you said eyelets are not the same AGAIN you avoid describing how. please be specific or just shut the heck up. the reps that guy bought are like 20 dollar reps off alibaba. these reps are probably like 250. no i didn’t buy them but you’re not helping at all with your vague as heck descriptions and dick head attitude

            How do you not know what a cut of material is? It’s the dimensions of the material from when they "cut" it.
            The back of the eyelets on the fakes have a ridge / indent around the edge. On legit pairs it’s smooth / rounded with a single line at where the eyelet joins in construction. You could spend 5 minutes of your time finding a video comparing: https://youtu.be/xcxNALE11c4?si=H8AHkqcC3E5UvSAW&t=263
            Took me two seconds, timestamp has the angle.

            i zoomed in at the best viewpoint of both and the eyelets didn’t look different here and by saying you think "the cuts are off" that could literally mean a hundred different things stupid lol you have to actually be specific
            also i don’t know where you’re getting your information about the leather rick uses from. the leather on these reps looks the same as the leather on the newest mainlines and the type of leather they use differs year to year

      Rick Owens is just an overcompensating "intellectual" with enough money and industry cred to make people buy into his own self aggrandizement. These "pieces" are the most stupid kind of fashion statements. If you ever want to pick out a cultist pay attention to them using this kind of lingo. I mean, "Pieces"? WAY TO ELEVATE THAT RUBBER AND CANVAS. TRULY A GREAT WORK OF AVT. TRULY PROFOUND. Wearing this stuff is like unironically wearing a TOOL shirt or looking at somebodies dropped glasses in an art museum. It is an ironic self own that anybody actually does but like all stupid fashion shit it is propped up by a market full of desperate morons that want to LARP as tasteful and smart.

That is kind of my point, someone like Rick Owens might be the most impressive or interesting designer out there but that just doesn’t mean much. The art form is lacking depth. Like look, don’t let me yuck your yum, alright?
