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

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.
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.
