Stan smiths, killshots, jcrew x nb has a similar aesthetic

They're classics! Get em! I love mine in white

Regularly check Reddit frugalmalefashion for links to CP sales

CPs decrease in value the more you wear. Nice investment if you want a higher quality shoe but if you just want the aesthetic of it there are cheaper options

Go for Kent Wangs if you want the same look at a lower $

Why don't you just Google the answer, OP?

CPs are so cliche in SV. Check out Buttero for something that goes on sale a little more often, or wait until El Goog sends you to London/Dublin and pick them up from Harrod's/END without the VAT

Initially my parents were strictly against love marriage and they were very strict as i wasn't even allowed to talk to girls and go with them on trips. Then i left home for job and been in relationship with two girls but, nothing worked.

They were continuously nagging me to not to go for any girl for marriage.

Now i am 29 and they started searching for alliance and finds there is very few girls who aren't in any relationship.
