I've noticed my red pleated highs received different treatment than the black pleated sneaks I bought.

The details on the reds are much better I feel. Each pleat is individual, more like a quilt than layered over each other like the rest of the colors. Does anyone know why they changed that? I feel the pleats on the other colors look and feel "cheaper" than the pleats shown in these reds. I found a picture of white highs that have the same treatment. I'm guessing the first run of pleated Balenciagas had the thinner, singular quilting and they changed it for further releases to cut some corners and save money?

I also like the non textured back panel leather used in these earlier versions. It gives the shoe a cleaner feel.

I think the change in pleat design is just those things they change every season. Before that, the design and materials were also different.



From what I can tell in the FW13 season, no pleated are available just the same hi-tops with different materials and the usual different colorways of the arenas.

Lanvin mids growing on me for some reason.

I thought they were a different design entirely. Cotes and resille, no?

Here is a side profile shot showing my Lanvin mids while I was trying on some N&F denim.  Sorry about the shit-tastic cell picture.

There is no hype around these margielas but I like them.



post #18870 of 21991

I really dig those Margielas also, despite people saying they look like Frankenstein's monster's shoes. $326 a pr. on Yoox right now, small sizes only though (some fucker got the only pair of 45s.)
