That didn't debunk shit.

It just further elaborated on his comments then claimed his comments were wrong. It's a common internet tactic.

>Generally chrome tanned leather is cheaper

Well horseen makes a high end chromexel line of leather blah blah blah

You source your leather from horween?

Well no but...

Okay so you got cheap chrome tanned leather. From a lesser tannery than horween why are you even bringing their name into this?

> Looks like they're using a particular brand rubber cup style sole

Ache-tually!!! It's the margom Serena cupsole is size 44!

Okay? It's a rubber cup sole.

I have some $40 suede (splits) sneakers from Nordstrom rack that utilize Margom soles.

Next you're going to telle it's a sign of quality to use vibram soles?

When he brings up tanners used by Hermes and similar luxury brands, he's doing association techniques.

All these vehicles utilize RUBBER tires

I understand if it's some high end luxury brand.

But honestly. Common projects has a meager and sad start. That just suddenly considered itself a luxury product.

It's the guidi backzip fiasco all over again.

Zippers at the back of the ankle will naturally unzip as you walk when utilized in a men's sillouette.

Not really. Addidas also uses cardboard midsoles like CP and plastic counters....so the random addidas boost sneaker with a knit upper (the one with neoprene designed to wear sockless is nice too) than CP sneakers
