All Star Hi-Priced Hi-Tops

johnvarvatoshightopsAs you already know I am a Converse addict and love the shoes private line designed by John Varvatos for this company, all priced under $80.00. Then I received this picture of a new Hi-Tops model that John Varvatos is selling direct. Love at first sight till’ I read the price. $250.00. I understand that John Varvatos has big bills at his fabulous 315 Bowery, New york, NY store installed in the location of former iconic rock club CBGB (hope you have been there during its 30-year run).

But still quite “over the top” in these times of “buy only what you need”. So, for this price, what do you get? A limited edition, Nappa leather upper with leather weave along eyelet and tongue. Bowery NYC branded outsole. rawhide laces. pinstripe lining and a stained outsole because as you know, it’s very expensive to look so cheap. Anyway, if you are in New York City, at least visit the store full of vintage clothing, CBGB memorabilia, vinyl records, and 70’s audio equipment, of course sold alongside Varvatos’ latest fashions. His website rocks, too.

    Anybody that buys a $250 pair of Chucks deserves to get kicked in the face by a guy wearing a $40 pair or real Chucks.

    Hey all, you can buy this same like, kind, and quality leather uppers for $75 from MEDIUM Company. $250 is simply ridiculous no matter how wealthy one is.

    I am really impressed with the 4-5 “Male” (????) models he uses on the website. They look like Meth Junkies. Hell, if you were to weight all of them at once their combined weight โ€œMightโ€ total the average weight of an American โ€œManโ€! Somebody feed these โ€œGuysโ€ (I use the term Guys loosely here)!

    Over & Out,

    Ya, we have “issues” out this way.
    One of my service providers doesn’t like my system and the security software isn’t able to resolve the problem……. before it crashes the OS, that is.
    Moreover, the Indian tech support (red-dots, not woo-woos) have yet to resolve the “crashing” problem. They say they need a copy of the file that’s killing their product to fix “my problem”.

    It takes roughly an Hour till the full scan blows up.
    In order to find the culprit file, i have to sit here to catch it’s name just before the system goes down.

    You know me, sitting here is not high on my list of priorities. But i don’t have much tolerance for sloppy code….. so, i’m gonna make “my problem” someone elses problem…… ๐Ÿ™‚
    Let’s say

    I’ll send ya e-mail when it’s hooked back up.
