Really? Curious as to what you were not impressed with. My own experience from the two recent pairs that I own are that the main style Lanvins (captoe and suede) are very well done. The sole is durable rubber and I believe stitched to the body. The leather used throughout seems good quality for sneakers and the suede is fairly supple. Also, Lanvins can be reliably found on sale for 50% off or more, compared to the Levahs that I've seen on sale once for $400 ish.
