wabi-sabi

Postby balloons » Thu Jan 02, 2014 2:18 am

I don't know much about japanese culture so we're just gonna interpret this as "extremely worn in shit"

Wikipedia wrote:Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.

seeing huhwot's pics / listening to him describe it has got me kinda wanting to sell my lm&c leather (sheep) and buy a used toj (calf). will develop a better looking patina imo.

my mind is never made up

Not as severe as some in this thread, but I like looking down to see this sometimes.

OG GATs that have been with me for ~18 months. Demoted to lifting shoes ~3 months ago. Discovered that they weren't structurally sound anymore yesterday, :(

repost from hat thread. This has been with me for years and on many outdoor adventures. Permanently smells like shit because I wore it backpacking for thirty consecutive days on two separate occasions with no bathing.

Reeboks spotted in English class. Maybe not the best image quality, sorry, but they've aged quite well.

Purcells have been demoted to concert/bad weather shoes. Worn regularly (every other day) for about 14 months. Threads loose (a lot on the heels), edges splitting, cracked/peeling leather, soles tearing, etc.

Guidis after six months, a couple hikes, and new heels. This thread is the truth. Needs more leather jackets tho

@bobo77

How are you liking those? All the reviews say they're heavy as shit (not sure if I would care/notice) and generally not great, but I still want some

I know everything about film. I've seen over 240 of them.

I guess you could call them heavy (I can only really compare them to my Check Taylors). I'm really into them, considering getting another pair with navy highlights haha. Definitely my favorite shoe purchase in awhile.

lavers are not heavy, they are in fact very light for a shoe with such a stacked sole (compared to AF1)

they beat up so nicely. the suede gets destroyed really quickly, the technical canvas will age with time and the white calf along the laces will stay squeaky clean.
