Missing from the picture are a couple pairs of Loakes for rare occasions where I suit up.

Favourite Brands: CP, MMM, Lanvin, Buttero

Most Favourite: Lanvin (Incredible sneakers, but I find it difficult to fit them in)

Least Favourite: Sebago's (donated them today)

Most Worn: CP (6 pairs here and another 2 which fell apart - Tournament Low's)

Least Worn: Grenson (I prefer to wear sneakers for the most part)

Best Quality: Lanvin/MMM (pretty evident when you handle/wear them)

Most Disappointed: Buttero (awesome but they squeak due to poorly thought out insoles)

Most Comfortable: MMM (like pillows)

Least Comfortable: Buttero (a little harder wearing than CP's)

Most Expensive: Alden

 

If I had my time again, i'd keep all the CP's, MMM, Lanvin for sneakers and everything else would be Alden aside from dress shoes. 

 

Clearly a large rotation but I box all my shoes after a day to air and I never wear the same pair 2 days in a row, so they look new.

 

I totally agree with you. I wanted to love my buttero shoes. But they are uncomfortable and take awhile to be broken in. 

 

Favorite: Lanvin's (They are comfortable and look great.)

Best Value: MMM (These get better with time) retains value if you want to sell it later on ebay.

Least Favorite: Buttero.

I hate the way GATs age, they become really misshaped. The soles on them are defiantly some of the longest lasting out there though.

that's an impressive collection elisiX, how long did it take you to accumulate?

Sneakerboy has the Adidas x Rick Tech Runners up on the site now, seems like pre order starts for them June 30.  Has some pics of them in different angles than we've seen before.

About 2 years I guess - less even. Ever since I joined SF. I didn't have a clue before SF smile.gif

Missing are some Mr Hare Derbies and a couple pairs of Loake's (Brown Suede and Black Leather).

I usually wear a EUR43 in MMM Gats.. but found a good deal on a EUR44 size, wondering if I should still be interested.. even though my US foot size is a 10.

Why would you buy something you know doesn't fit you just to save some money?  Seems kinda ridiculous to me.

Really? My U.S. Brannock size is a 10D and I need to wear 43 CP's and 44 GAT's. I think it should be fine.

 Looking for a pair of Rick Owens Ramones high top sneakers black & white (in leather/suede), to fit 43. Would truly appreciate heads up.
