The $25 is probably to pay for shipping and the 3 weeks is to cover the shipping/handling/customs process.

No problem. If you decide to order directly from Lanvin see how much it would be for multiple pairs, if its not $25 per lace, I would be down for a couple pairs. I have been looking for quality 8mm waxed cotton laces and they are to find, the 4mm dress style are everywhere.

there is no customs on laces

True, but since it's being sent from a business, they [Lanvin] may still have to fill out customs form since it's an order.  Then again, it'd probably be shipped to the store and not to the person's household so I guess you are right.

I'm sure there are similar laces that are indistinguishable or perhaps whoever makes the regular laces that Lanvin probably gets them from anyway. Any pointers are appreciated. Thx!

You could even try something like these Wolverine waxed flat laces. They only come in black or brown though.

That angle makes the shoe look ugly to me.

still bobos? wtf are you saying. They're made in the same factory as lanvin just have a different sole so yes they are baller and i'm 99% sure you have never handled a pair.

You know. Bobos, they make your feet feel fine. Bobos, they're just a dollar ninety-nine.

 

You're correct, I haven't handled those particular sneakers. However, I have owned and still own a lot of sneakers, several of which are probably made in the same factory as those. While they cost more than say.............Nike, Puma, or Adidas, I don't consider many of them to be "Baller."

 

My Common Projects Tournaments are a prime example. Great construction, materials, overall quality, but still not what I consider "Baller."

 

So what constitutes "Baller" to me? Construction? Materials? Price? Exclusivity? I can't really put my finger on it. But when I see it, I know. And when I look at those green sneakers, "NOT BALLER" is what pops up in my mind.

Lol CP's aren't baller? Why because they are nothing too out there/different? What about Saint Laurent? If you say the latter are baller you are full of shit.
