Looks like whatever "art" they're working on would be even uglier.

You got or found any pics of those Rafs w/o the chain? Like the one in the back of the first pic.

I think I prefer the shape of CP Achilles, but the quality on these is insanely high for sneakers. Leather and construction feel like high end dress shoes. My CPs and MMMs feel distinctly ghetto in comparison.

yep, lanvin = like walking on clouds


Lavin is that good? I have read numerous times that MMM are really comfortable but this is the first time I read about Lavin.

Lanvin is very comfortable but I do find MMM GATs much more comfortable.
post #16416 of 21837

MMM is super comfy. 

didn't really appreciate the comfort until I put back on a pair of JPs beaters I had for about a year and was like uhoh.gif

I imagine my reaction when I finally switch from converse to MMM Gats will be inlove.gif

I have purchased CP and did not find them that comfortable. Plus, I think they look weird on my narrow foot.

Converse, the soles run down quickly but I have an overabundance of them plain.gif

MMM Gats, I purchased a pair but they were too small so I was only able to wear them at home for a bit.

Does anyone have a secret shop for purchasing MMM Gats? I am still looking for the all white leather pair from last season, size 46, if anyone has seen it.

mmm's are indeed pretty comfortable but i have a wider foot, gats tend to squeeze my foot. lanvin on the other hand is just right. i have a pair of brushed leather captoes that have a calfskin interior, insanely padded and just feel rad. also have a couple high's that feel like im wearing air cushioned boots.

i also don't like the mmm sole. i feel like my feet are too close to the ground or that im wearing those toe shoes.

I wasn't talking about comfort, rather materials and construction. MMM gats are definitely more comfortable but feel flimsy, equal or moreso than basic nike and adidas shoes IMO. They also get creased and worn out pretty fast which is not something that I see happening with the Lanvins due to the thick leather.

CPs are actually not very comfortable sadly..I think their concept was form over function tbh. Or I just have wide feet.

Prada really is trying to cling on to the creeper soles popularity by trying with these crazy soles and for the upcoming season, Air Max Pradas.

I'll say this one more time.

Comfort is a function of fit.

It's going to be different from person to person and sneaker to sneaker.


My most comfortable footwear are my semi bespoke shoes, because, surprise surprise, they fit in all the right areas.

i love the shirts and knits from this upcoming collection but the shoes look like a bunch of kids just went crazy and slapped chains on older season shoes. ironic though because i've previously preferred the shoes to the clothes.

This is more true with dress shoes/boots than sneakers though. Sneakers are usually more cushioned and with softer leather/material that stretches and expands and/or molds to your feet.

Plus it is less common for sneakers to have a narrow or wide options when it comes to sizing unlike traditional dress shoes/boots. I believe running shoes are the only sneakers that has this option?

I don't think there is anything wrong with a statement such as "MMM GATs are more comfortable than Lanvins" because this tends to be true to most people and you can just either agree or disagree.
