Never thought I'd like an Arena, but the grey x black is pretty nice.

I like the contrast a lot and the nubuck is supposedly superb.
(not my pics}




There is also a navy/purple-ish nucbuck with black sole/laces.

Pick those blues ones up, the reds should be here Friday. 

 

They are butter in the Texas sun.

I don't care what colorways/materials they use. Arenas will always look like you have Priuses for feet. Patchwork/pleated hi's are infinitely better.

I always wanted the cork arenas that tween has when I saw them at barneys a few years ago.

Both the light grey and purps are coo.

Shout-out to mainy for the sneakers....

That shoe is like a porsche panamera, looks good from the back, looks good from the front.  Then you see the side and uhoh.gif

laugh.gif I like your analogy, but the side is my favorite part. I'm a sucker for mixed-media monochrome. foo.gif

Mine are the mid-style from just before they introduced the Arena, of which I'm happy I got since I like the shape way more than the Arena.

 

The vamp curves unlike the currently diagonal/wedge shape one, and there isn't that big padded tongue.  The lace-holes are a combination of grommets and d-rings too which I like a lot.

 

They were my introduction to designer sneakers and I knew the second I saw them that I had to have them inlove.gif  I think they're my favorite shape and design of all time for sneakers, I just wish I could get some more.

 

Here they are in black, which I remember Barney's also carrying the same time they had mine.  Oh yeah and I'm pretty sure the glow-in-the-dark ones are the same shape as well.  Didn't know of any other releases besides the laser-etched ones like mine, the black ones linked, and the glows, but eBay found me these canvas and leather as well, which have the same lace charm as the glows, but different than the cork.

 

 

So I guess the canvas ones are the same as the glows, as they have the stitching around the rear padding and the same little charm thing.  Other than that they have the same design as the laser-etched black leather and tan nubuck.

 

 

None of these pics are mine, but are from the listings above so we still have this when they get taken down:
