yep, that's why lanvin fell off

Lanvin fell off because they changed the sole and Sufu stopped riding them?
I think it's mostly the design, the older designs/style/colorways were more simple than it is now, when it comes to the high-tops anyways. The lowtops are still pretty nice and simple.

the shoes bro the shoes, that's why their shoes fell off the ugly midsole contributes a lot to the overall look for most of us

It just seemed like a lot has to do with SuFu since it's tossed around so much like "Sufu were on Lanvins years ago", "Sufu is over it because of the sole" etc...

Newer soles wear down much better than previous iteration. The newer rounded edges don't show wear like the old sharper edges on the midsoles, which made wear patterns much more obvious. Also, instead of using the italian overhyped midsole that all lux sneakers were using at the time, Lanvin decided to create an in-house model for their sneaks probably to be different. I welcome the new soles, but I do think they look a little too chunky compared to the existing one.

Well not sure if people would buy for the price but Lanvins at NM are 25% off.

^ that sucks. i just paid 350 for them (which is what the NM ones are basically going for after the discount) but then i had to pay 80 bucks for shipping + customs. always getting fucked
post #1133 of 21995
Which ones did you get?
I might wait until what is left over for their last call sale when stuff are usually 35%-50% off, sometimes even 75% off but I doubt the Lanvins would last that long.

so lanvins went from holy shit! to dead/over in a span of about 3 weeks. might set a SF record. i still plan to cop. probably better that they are over.

both of the last two pics i posted. the brown/grey ones that everyone hated and the black suede ones with the black captoe.

people are just whining about the new soles because they are used to seeing the old ones. its the same debate as people who prefer a bmw "2002" versus a current model. the old stuff is boxier and less streamlined. the new ones are solid as a rock, hardly wear down, are much sleeker and far more unique.

Sq is it that hard to believe that people really dont like the new sole?

short answer, yes. people are generally unwilling to accept change and evolution, even if its for the better.

Maybe we should start a Facebook group !?

Seems like there's a reason why a lot of stores here in Germany/Europe still carry Lanvins with the old sole...
