@blackplague I wouldn't skate the blk/slv ones. Just Syndicate, since they're made with skate-friendly materials. I'd go with the mesh pair over the blk/slv I think.
No one's going to skate the Diemme's. Even if someone picked up a sample pair, they would just resell them. The Diemme pairs aren't made with the normal Vulc sole. Every part of the shoe is hand made in Italy and the retail is expected to be in the $200-$300 range from what I hear. But I definitely want the Sk8 Hi's and Slip On's from that drop just to have/wear casually.
Aight. I'm thinking of doing a lil article comparing and contrasting the Sup Old Skools vs the Syndicate Old Skools.
Truth. Though I can still dream about it happening haha. Maybe Diemme might use their own soles then? How they are hand made I hope they go all out with them all leather interior, waxed and leather laces, dust bag, etc. I like how they modified the fit of the Sk8 Hi. I have a feeling they'll likely come out with an Authentic and Era as well. At least I hope they do.
