Those diors are stacking very awkwardly.

Yeah, looks like he just quickly shoved the shoes on his feet and took the pics though which would explain why the stacks are so sloppy.

Cleaning up the stacks and taking some proper pics would probably aid in our judgement of the sneakers.

Yea, I didn't really prepare for the photo or anything lol I saw that someone asked for pics so I snapped a few really quick, it isn't a WAYWT, I'm wearing shorts it's hot as bawls over here.

KVC, I'd suggest letting the jeans just stack above the shoes because tucking it in and tying/closing the shoe too tight just looks weird. Or loosen it up and then do a half tuck.

Did you find a place or make space for a new pair? Or you just decided to get rid of some chucks?

anyone know how kva sneakers fit compared to cp and dior? also, where can i get these:
post #3188 of 23556
kvc, which are you referring to when you say you think they are 95% authentic, your lanvins or mmm? u picked the mmms up at the store iirc? those are so niceeeeeeeeeeee!!! i am also tempted to buy a pair from that ebay seller, price isnt too good to be real you know? if anyone balls up and kops a pair pls give us a review!!
darkknight, im also looking at some kva sneakers. i emailed a few online shops about sizing and they both stated that they are tts but i would still like a review before purchasing...

the soles on most kva sneaks look the same as cp's, so that's why i'm wondering if they run big.
post #3191 of 23556
yeah, i see it. however i wear the same size in rafs as i do in margiela, both are 42. i purchased some 41 cps and they are ok but i prefer the 42s for some reason.
also is Common projects the actual manufacturer of the soles or is it another company like eta movements is to watches?
post #3192 of 23556
seems like the company is called Manifattura. only new lanvin has custom soles as it is a massively expensive undertaking

Manifattura just means 'factory' but I think the CP's are made at Maniffatura Ferrarese, which makes a lot of shoes (leather soled trad shoes) for various makers, and LVMH has a huge pull over them. I could be wrong as well, but Italy probably resembles where I am at in terms of manufacturing facilities, etc, so names can be different and the smell would be the same.

"KRIS VAN ASSCHE is taking full advantage of his new relationship with Italy’s Manifattura Ferrarese, known for their production and distribution work for many of LVMH’s men’s footwear lines."

also, the custom soles being expensive seems like bullshit to me and something thta sq4you made up to make everyone think Lanvins are more desirable. Things to consider: - If it ain't broke, there's seriously no need to fix it - there are tons of people who probably sketch out shoes and 'design' them, but the real modeling and pattern-making would be done by an in-house specialist at the factory, who makes the drawings and ideas come to life. They would probably be pushing the two or three popular sole molds because they're there, and it's one less thing to worry about. The CP sole looks good. It's a translation of a Converse-type sole and it works as a modern interpretation of a Vans sole as well, so it has a lot of bases covered design wise. Hard to beat. There are a lot of pre-made notions and accessories in this industry (all those latches, buckles, stuff like that, it can be pre-bought, or you could easily custom commission something for not much money but a lot of effort), and using pre-made stuff is always safer and less costly, but it's not millions of dollars in savings. It's just easier. -Lots of companies DO make custom soles for their sneakers if the design calls for it, and it doesn't affect the shelf price any. This goes for low priced shoes all the way to expensive ones. SOme guy in this thread said it costs $10,000 to make a new sole, and that seems like fluff to me. A pair of Italian made sneakers like CPs, MMM, anything in this thread, Lanvin especially, probably costs about $30-40 to make. If you're in the business of selling $500-700 shoes, you'd make the money back in 30 pairs, even if that custom sole does cost $10K to develop (which it does not)... a minimum run might only be 100 pairs. What I do think it might cost: maybe $1,000 to do it right and get the molds and everything made for a FSR, and then that $10,000 as above may relate to a run of the actual product, which could be like 10,000 pieces, so in other words, $1 a sole.... and that's being really generous for something molded of rubber at a factory. Who knows. It could very well be a fraction of that. Manufacturing for things you're gonna make thousands of copies of is very cheap and people do it day in day out.
