Save yourself the money and get neither. Get these:




You won't see the upper portions of any of these when you wear them anyways!

the yohji and dior "chucks" don't have the circle-and-star logo on the ankles like the real chucks do.....to achieve the yohji/dior look you'd have to paint over it so the shoe is in total, minimalistic, white glory............

Sounds rather margiela-ish. But I like the idea and have thought of trying it before on the shoes that I never wear anymore. Still to lazy to start doing anything though.

Yohji and CdG have already been doing "converse" sneakers on and off for many years. And I actually like the CdG ones with the pointy toes. At least there is an attempt to do something to the shoes rather than just changing the brand name.
