Haha. I wonder if you could bleach the soles or something, do you think? Probably not worth it, but possible.

Couldn't you just get some white paint and paint the soles? They'll be "custom" and "arty" after that....

Yoox gets their stuff from other online stores, either that or they are affiliated with them. Last time I bought a pair of shoes from Yoox, the box was filled with papers from another webstore. No wonder my order took a while to get to me since they had to get it from Europe, the store that had my order in stock, and then send it to me after they receive them. So I always assumed Yoox sells whatever is leftover or returns from other stores, some are probably B-grade products as well.

The Damir Silent sneakers oki-ni is carrying seem alright for the price. Thoughts?

Would kop if I weren't broke for the moment, new sneakers are in order for me. The black mids are nice, but the tan color looks a lot different from the earlier pictures that were floating around the internet. Not sure I like they way they turned out. Has anyone seen them in person?
post #298 of 21866
snake , i was looking at those earlier and they are nice. Not sure sure about that detail on the toe but I might get used to it.
post #299 of 21866
Yeah I don't know what happened there either with the tan ones, but imo they look god awful. Reminds me of the shoes I saw at the Holocaust museum.
