It's sorta sad, nice sneaks are a licence to print money

Lanvin used to be such a dope brand.
post #17290 of 21841
To be honest the reason designer brands like Lanvin and Margiela create abominations instead of re-releasing classics is rooted in the nature of these lux companies. If they created the same shit over and over, it would lose the exclusivity and rarity of designer merchandise. By coming up with new designs (as bad as they are), these companies are constantly ahead of the curve (figuratively speaking) even if they keep coming out with shitty new ideas. Many copycats hop on board for successful old designs, which ruins the exclusivity and rarity set by these high-end brands. Once that happens, there is less incentive for customers to buy from expensive designers like Lanvin. Lanvin has to create designs that are hard to imitate. By using rare and lux materials, as ugly as they may be- are very hard to imitate which set's their brand apart from any other ripoff or midmarket brand. All the rare materials, odd construction techniques, etc that they are doing now are VERY hard to copy and it makes the shoes their own. That being said, they're all ugly as hell and sometimes it pays to capitalize on successful product especially if that's what customers want. That's why Diesel buying margiela was somewhat of a good idea. The house can now re-release classic items (5-zip, lowtop trainers in classic cw's) without suffering the fashion house dilemma to constantly innovate.

-- I bought some used OG highs, royal-ish blue, that have faded to something resembling the ones in that pic^^. The leather, that is. The suede and nylon bits have kept pretty dark. Anyone know how I can fade those parts as well? I'm thinking of trying a very diluted bleach solution, but I'm hesitant...

Oh shit. Dying them dark grey is tempting....

Are Lanvins more comfortable than CP Achilles?

You mean the tan canvas with white paint GATs?

The white paint that peeled off.

It just depends on your foot. The one that fits you best should be the most comfortable.
