I have a pair. They're really nice, but I'd tier them with CP more than Lanvin. Definitely worth the price though.

Lanvin's look ok as art, but as a sneaker, they are too much style.  I prefer subtle.  I couldn't wear them unless very plain.  Just my taste.

cool, thanks! regarding lanvin.. i completely disagree... maybe they're not aesthetically as nice as other options out there, but in my honest opinion, the quality destroys 99% of whats out there.

completely agree. the lanvin high tops i have are my favorite sneaker, highest quality ive seen, far exceeding balenciaga and everything else, but they are just too too bulky, flashy and loud. really hard to wear unless i dress down like im going to the gym and make them look like basketball shoes.

lanvin's look and feel so much better in person. while most shoes have product photos that look better than the actual shoe in person, every lanvin shot i've seen does not do the actual shoe justice in terms of color tones, details, etc. not to mention the beautiful work they do on the inside of the shoes. 

My comment was only directed at the design of the exterior. Someone already pointed out very real similarities to some basketball sneakers and IMO the Lanvins looked worse than the original Jordans. That pair could be made from dinosaur leather lined with cashmere and it wouldn't stop them looking like a cheap, mass-market kid's running shoe. (I have a few pairs of Lanvins myself, I'm not dismissing the "quality.")

But I kind of feel similar things toward some of the more popular Balenciaga & Raf designs, so I know better than to expect everyone to agree with me.

I need a pair of lanvin lows to add my sneaker collection. Already got two hightops (YSL and KVA) and the painted gats I bought recently, and another pair of lows would be great to vary once summer comes.
