I remember back in the day on this board people used to talk constantly about how awesome manchesters were and I never believed them. I had owned a couple of pairs of Lakais and thought they were the shittiest shoes out.
I just recently got the vulc versions of them, and though I am sure its a different shoe in many ways, I get it now. Manchesters are fantastic skateshoes.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”

I had a pair in that colorway. Best $50 I've ever spent. Bullshit how they are only selling them at Zumiez, seeing as kids who shop there usually buy anything in neon.

In Europe I've seen them all over with no exclusive deals...

I was thinking on getting a dozen pairs but in the end I stumble upon some Jerichos in the same colorway and they're great.

    

Surprisingly, the Lakaitning sole is holding up very good - no superglue needed yet -, and is way more lighter and less stiff than the OG Lakai cupsoles.

Woah woah woah woah waitttttt a minute guys....

I would wait till they issue the manchesters out in fall because I bought a pair of the zumiez ones and for a cup sole it got floppy as shit way too quick The sole was definitely may more malible and soft then the OG OG's which may sound good but heyyyy what the heck i'll take a quick pic to let you guys know what I mean...




Fucking cup soles shouldn't be able to be rolled up like that.  Hopefully it was just a test batch and a shitty one at that to pawn off to zumiez the real drop better be a lot better. It's one of those shoes where the upper slips off and goes over the sole, which is really fucking annoying.

My bad for the huge pics.

Wasn't the original reason the Manchester was pulled out of Lakai's line because they were sitting on such a huge backstock at the factory since they weren't selling?

I thought it was the opposite; people were only buying the Manchesters and none of the pro's shoes.

Yeah the manchester selects are way good for the price.  I found some navy canvas ones on utilities website and grey and white ones and copped all those bastards.  Great prices, i think like 38-40 bucks american.

dang... I've only seen pics of the black/gum OG manchesters.  Saw them in person at Zumiez for the first time today.  Holy crap are they nice.  I'll never spend $65 on a pair of shoes at Zumiez though.  I'll be stoked when they are available everywhere.  Also saw Pico's for $29 at some shop called Robert Wayne, whatever the fuck that is.

I have black/gum OG Manchesters and white/gum OG Manchesters both in size 9. Both are never skated in, and both are in very good condition. I'm willing to part with them.

Not so keen on shoenerding anymore? No new shoeposts on YWS in a year, is this a more mature, sane Watson we are seeing here? Now that you are a company man you have to put your youthful hobbies behind you?

Hahah yeah I am over the shoe thing. It's been like 15 years of being so into them, I'm just over it. And writing those Concrete articles really made me not want to write any for my blog. And I got sick of being known as "the shoe guy". Actually this winter I'm planning on unloading a shit load of my old classics. Keep just the essentials. Hope I can get decent money for the ones that I am attached to.

Klaus, shoot me a PM, we'll talk about prices.

I had a pair of the maroon and gum og manchesters.  One of my favorite pair of shoes in a long time.  I was so sad to stop skating them, but I still have them around.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.
