Got to disagree. Different materials doesn't make it a different shoe. It'll be like the Air Jordan IV or Air Force I's getting exotic materials/leathers, it'll still be Air Jordan IV's and Air Force Is.
The Cotes are still Cotes, they just use different materials, whether it's sting ray or pleated leather, the shoe is the same.
And I got what you were saying with the difference in pleates but like I said, it seems like it is just one of those things to change it up every season. Like Lanvin with their signature lowtops, they change up the materials/leathers but still the same shoe every season.
