These are 43s cuz my CP 44s were a tad too long and were still too narrow at first. Length fits fine, width is pretty adjustable with the straps. 44s would probably be better though.

i had the same thought. the silver eyelets really fuck it up in my opinion. a shame too, because i have been waiting for them to rerelease black lows for a while

post #23329 of 23562
The silver eyelets also fuck up the white ones by leaving black "oxidation" marks all over them when they rub against the eyelets.

Wow, thats annoying.

 

I have a black pair with black eyelets from 2-3 seasons ago and on the inside of the eyelets, there is a design flaw with the metal prongs that secure them. They are sharp at the edges and they wear against the tongue, and really damage the leather through friction. At the rate they are going, I easily see them wearing straight through.

 

That problem isnt present with two older pairs I have. 

 

Sort of disappointing that prices keep going up each year (this season being an exception), the leather keeps betting a bit worse, and they arent even trying to execute well. I expect more.

post #23331 of 23562
Yeah I have that problem as well, I mean its less "noticeable" due to it being a part of the leather that's always covered but I was pretty disappointed when after one wear there were tears all over the tongue and streaks of black as well.

god damn rafs are expensive as hell all his shoes are, adidas are a rip off, never pay that much for made in china collabs just cause the logo al the excess glue i cannot stand it

 

and rafs aint even that exotic, the leather is pretty average considering the price they ask for and i hate that sole that is also on balenciaga

post #23333 of 23562
I think the stan smiths are probably a rip, but I'm a fan of those buckle collabs~ I don't own a pair but they're at least somewhat unique.

Raf shoes are definitely priced a bit high, but its not any more egregious than Rick and some other medium sized designer brands.

I don't mind the silver that much but I can see how they can give off a Buscemi look. I'm more disappointed that they're not as high nor sleek as I'd hoped.

post #23335 of 23562

yeah they chunky as hell esp the toe box

 

two things i hate most perforated toe boxes and most of all chunky footwear 

 

definitely true rafs aren't the only rip off

I've been wearing the shit out of my Marni's lately (same ones as in my sig). So dope I've debated picking up the other colours.

Yeah, made me remember a pair or Eric Koston es I used to have during my middle school skater phase

Saint Laurent SL/37M in white and leopard print, 1/2 size bigger than what I normally wear. Like the distressed/worn look, yet the whites of the leather upper are still clean. Silver laces are a nice touch.

 

Kind of stiff, definitely needs some breaking in. The upper edge of the tongue will rub against your shin.
