What do you think about these Gucci skneakers?
I'm planing to buy a pair of these Gucci sneakers.
I tryied them on yesterday with a pair of Dior raw denim jeans and they looked great, the quality felt realy good. I know that they would look simular to the stan smith or other adidas, nikes and so on shoes but the green/red/green stripe realy does its thing and makes the shoes look good. Plus that I want a shoe which I dont see around every corner.
Sometimes a little green-red-green nylon webbing is all it takes to make the point.

If I buy the shoes, I'm planing to buy a matching Gucci belt that looked realy hot together with the shoes.

What do you think, should I buy these shoes, please use arguments.

i'm assuming you're a guy, so yeah. .. if you like, them, sure!! but i definitely wouldn't wear a matching belt. (at the same time) way too much tackiness/logoedness!

This belt is the one I'm going to match with the shoes.
Thou the whole belt wont be shown but just one tiny bit of the green/red/green on the side/front of the hip.

I think that it would look great.

Hello, to be honest, I really don't like the huge logo on the belt, a bit too "bling bling" in my opinion. The shoes are not bad, at least they don't have the monogram logo all over them. They're not exceptionnal, but they're decent for casual everyday wear and are very versatile.

They're a little too P-Diddy for my taste, and matching a belt to them would be really over-logoed in my opinon, but you like them go for it.

^ I was about to say that. Im sure P.Diddy has them in crocodile or something like that.

They're nice but you could get Adidas which are practically the same style for less. I never liked designer sneakers I prefer Puma and Adidas.

for some reason, looking at the belt, all I can think of is a superhero... a cheesy super hero... like Gucci Guy..

dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna Gucci Guy!

oh dear. and on that note.
I actually like the belt, for some reason it just strikes me as funky looking. as for the sneakers, they are cool, but they would be better if they didnt cost an arm and a leg, because really... there isnt much to them. exactly how much ARE they? and do you honestly want them just to have something different, or because you like the idea of having Gucci sneakers? I hope you don't take offense to that question, because either way, you are entitled to buy them for whatever reason you want... its your money! but depending on what the true motivation is, you may want to look at other options. because they really arent THAT 'unique' or different or groundbreaking... etcetera.

but I am fond of the belt. *whistles batman tune*

Um...no. Seeing as it's Gucci, it's going to be highly priced. And they just don't seem worth it. Quite honestly, they look cheap to me. Anybody could make a knockoff of that, buy some plain shoes from Payless or something and glue some ribbons on the side. Easy as that.

Yep. Complete waste of money unless your purpose is to attempt to impress people with the labels you buy. I basically feel the same way about the belt.

If you want shoes like that, get the original Adidas shoes that Gucci ripped off for a much smaller price.

Honestly, if you're going to buy Gucci sneakers buy the more discreet "athletic" ones.....they don't scream look at me quite so much.
