The toe box doesn't look as narrow as the Van Doren collection that's supposed to drop this summer. Guam I'm not sure the shoes are quite to the T, but are darn close to the OG authentics, especially with the quadruple stitch lines on the heel. Either way, I'm pretty psyched.

TomCat: What other shoe would even come close? These are as close to a T as they'll get. I'm pretty sure of it!

I just like that they've replicated the original model to a T!


Minus the correct silhouette!

And the rubber. And if I'm not mistaken in the OG's leather heel didn't have stitching.

It's as close as it's gonna get to the OG, with the current technologies that they're working with. Now days there's environmental standards, operation cost, design teams, etc. that all have a part in a shoe being built now days.

I'm still a bit lost on the rubber complaints. I get the issues with some soles, and I've certainly experienced them, but what are you seeing that tips you off?
