I guess the M_moria exhibition is traveling - Altieri is heading to Moscow, then Tokyo (Lift, this time) in June. Kind of a cool way to sell expensive shoes

But that's typical for shoe makers. CM shoe makers do those trunk shows quite often.

^ They look like clown shoes to me.

Then you're in the wrong place.

lol8[1].gif that post got deleted the shoes looked pretty bad when they were posted.

@docdocgs, you are a badass.

I will always love those shoes (and the presentation) above all else at this point. My m_moria come close, but just in terms of being ready to wear they are perfection.

@Eckblk and I still are trying to figure out the best way to wear them. I kind of wear them with whatever but, you know, tornadoes go best with super-skinny hems and dual zips go well with stacks.

Let us know what you find that pairs well with them.

Cheers and congrats!!!

Edit: where the hell did you get them from, anyway? Me, Eck and JPC waited nearly a year for ours. smile.gif

@AlexanderTG agreed with the tornadoes working with skinny hems but i have been wearing the dual zips with skinny hems as well and it works fine. Def stacks cool with my devoa.
post #21173 of 22249
Oh, I do both as well. Just an example. Though I find the toe box a bit wide for SLP d01's and such. But yeah, they are fairly versatile.
post #21174 of 22249
the wider toe actually allows me to wear wider hems with them so i appreciate that. ccp begs for something sleek.

Thanks, @AlexanderTG! It's the best club to be in. I've got a few more pictures Spoiled out below. I just can't stop looking at them and feeling that thick-ass leather. Honestly, after I saw your pair posted here a while back, I emailed Matteo and asked if it might be possible to get a pair made. He talked to Alessio, who agreed to make one more pair. I think the price was up a bit from what you paid (!), and the wait was about 6 months. I was just delighted that I could get a pair!

 

I will totally understand and accept the ruling of the court if this revelation gets me banned from this thread forever, but I have been wearing them with...DENIM! I have some deep indigo, slubby denim from Stevenson Overall Company (see the picture of the "red room" in my post, above, for further graphic explanation as to why denim is my choice at work) with a 7.2" hem that works great with these shoes. They remind me more of old hobnail work boots and shoes than most of my other pairs, so trying them with something that has a bigger, almost cartoonish hem seems legit, too. Not that anyone here heard me advocate for wearing big hems, nope. And i've worn them with my new black Layer-0 canvas pants, too; not surprising, a really nice look, but the toe is somewhat at odds with the tighter hems.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

btw, Alex, your jackets or blazers or whatever you call those thingies people wear over their shirts are beyond gorgeous. Every time I see one of them (or one of Eton's PH pieces), I feel a twinge of envy that I can't fit into any of them, and that my lifestyle doesn't have any real room for them right now (you are definitely the most exquisitely dressed rockstar I've ever seen!). But man, I spend enough on this "pursuit" already (per my S.O., at any rate; she did seem to like the ma+ horse biker jacket I got her for Mother's Day, though...), and would spend more in a second, so it's good to have these natural barriers in place. I guess. Or, not?

Good price for some kudu leather boots from The Last Conspiracy. In my experience this model fits a bit small.

why'd they have to do the exposed shank...
post #21179 of 22249

I'm pretty sure all their models in the Asgard line have that. You're suggesting it's a bit derivative?

Yes i would say that. Now i don't think that the designer whom i think they imitated created this style or anything. Its just that its not original given the association in the aesthetic. The boot is probably a nice well made boot, i would just rather not have the exposed shank for the gimmick.
