THE OFFICIAL "streetwear" BALLER BOOT/SHOE THREAD ***700usd Min*** - Page 386

post #5776 of 13597
At the price that is being paid for these fancy boots we all love, I'd like to see more lasts being used... instead of one toe shape across 9 boots, maybe throw in 2-3 shapes to keep things interesting.

It's a small label, and he clearly had one preferred silhouette in mind for the season. Last season's shoes had a totally different shape. I dunno, I think it's OK. Many labels don't manage to put out shoes at all.

Well, if he's going to do a shape, he picked a good one. However, options > no options.

Maybe Plokhov was trying to be like Guidi smile.gif

Aside from that, they look nice. Thanks for posting!

the shape and overall aesthetic of his boots are good. but, there's something too "dressy" about his sole. i think if he was to distress it a little more, it would compliment well.

Plokhov himself said he doesn't really like distressing – it will distress itself in time haha. I actually like the "neat" sole.

I dont know if that would really work that well

I think most designers in this thread tend to have a last or two that they use and then change up the line completely over time

Wouldn't suprise me however if you saw a MTO maker come along and get into this market (besides guidi)

no one sees the sole, are you talking about the side view of it?

guidi doesnt have different lasts either

Wasn't referring to lasts, more that they are pretty much the only major MTO maker in this field

Did you order your CCP's as MTO?

Individual sentiments and CCP are a pretty small part of this thread man

It isn't what they are known for, whilst Guidi is pretty well known for being flexible and open with customers MTO requests

By far and large, its Guidi's game at the moment

nah mine were a small run that distributor did.

i agree guidi is most well known for the mto...
post #5788 of 13597
Yeah lol of course you didnt get CCP on MTO, prices are cray

Well anyway all I was saying was that I'm suprised no one has really made an effort to bust in on that market yet

I'm pretty happy with my rotation ATM

Margiela Black Sidezips
Margiela Black Sidezips
Carpe Diem Black Calf Sidezips
Carpe Diem Black Horse Derbies
Carpe Diem Grey Reverse Sidezips
Guidi Black Reverse Derbies
Guidi Black Reverse Workboots
Layer-0 Grey Reverse Workboots

I sorta want another pair of Layer-0 (probably cordovan) some 10SeiOtto sidezips (two pair I guess) and some CCP sidezips
post #5789 of 13597
actually if i had ordered MTO it would of been the same boot and cost the same, the vendor i went through does small runs so its practically mto
post #5790 of 13597
Practically MTO isnt MTO man

Why are you arguing about this?
