Like I've said before owning something from previous seasons doesn't make it any better, a person getting into it today would not get anything less if they truly like wearing the clothes (crazy concept just enjoying your clothes) sorry du its not special to have the super duper rare 1996 pussy hair cardigan that Margiela along with the store SA's delivered themselves

whuddup we're the same age

Why would they only make three sizes?

Japanese people don't have a huge range of foot sizes.

Highest quality sneakers are probably Buttero. They even use vegetable tanned leathers http://14oz-berlin.blogspot.fi/2012/05/buttero-sneakers-made-in-tuscany.html

CP's feels quality-wise better than both the original and Margiela's GATs e.g. leather and construction. For me, when talking about sneakers, design is pretty much everything that matters anyway. I like Raf velcros and vandals most.

Yeah I realise you're paying for the design, but my CPs rape my margielas in terms of quality. And yeah, in this case quality has translated into durability too.

But if the price tag wasn't what it is, we wouldn't be worshiping it on a forum - it would just be another pair of shoes.

Well, you can justify whether something is 'worth' 2K objectively by breaking down the cost of materials, wages, design and marketing, and mark up. There are some shoes that have very little marketing and markup in the equation that would be worth 2k.

note that i don't have a problem with buying shoes for design, or even paying huge markups for retailers and marketing. gotta keep the world turning.

comfort is more related to how suitable the shape is for your foot, so it's gonna be specific to the individual.

Also, cushioning is an easy way to make things feel comfortable, but walk 12 hours in a cushioned shoe which initially feels comfortable compared to a hard leather soled shoe which fits well and tell me which is better.

My experience is the same.

Anyone know where I can find the new Black Balenciagas Arena mids. The SA has teased me about them too long.

maybe i should just ignore all posts with margiela in them because i've had to say this a million times.

You're definitely overstating it. The quality of MMM footwear isn't super duper amazing, but its definitely not "mall brand" quality like you've posted before and I'd say its pretty decent quality for the price when you factor in that most of the stuff will make it to 40-60% off retail. It's not like most people are really paying 800-900 (or anywhere near that) for their MMM boots.

Its obviously not mall brand, after all it costs 3x as much as 'good' mall brand shoes even at sale. All in all compared to other designer sneakers around the same price quality itsnt there.
