THE OFFICIAL "streetwear" BALLER BOOT/SHOE THREAD ***700usd Min*** - Page 562

post #8416 of 15097
Are MMM shoes worth full retail? I've been looking for a clean boot with this exact shape for months now. 940 bones though... there might be a non-baller alternative.

definitely not when they pop up on yoox all the time

Those classic plain black ones rarely make it to the sales, but other variations certainly do.

I like the mmm sidezips but 900 is a lot tho, considering what you can get in the second hand market for that money. But if you like them more so than a1933, ma+ and etc then go for it. If you look long enough they wind up on eBay or b&s once in awhile, tho.

In fact, some of them do, not sure if all though. No offense to the fans, but it's hard to see what makes them worth it. So many better options in my opinion.

at $900 retail (price i see from previous poster) there are a lot of amazing and better options, you can even have something MTO for you

1/2 the price 2x the quality http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/shop/index.php/footwear/black-brunello-side-zip-boot-1452.html

The black ones on yoox have different leather treatments. They are not the plain black calf versions.

Pretty sure almost all do, along with some quality corrected grain leather

There are always plain black ones on yoox in the preview or once they come out. They usually sell within a week or so but it's there

I'd say a shell cordovan alden would fit this thread better than the white's boots.

Please stop discouraging people from posting shoes that you don't like in this thread. Just because they're not the typical aesthetic that's posted here doesn't mean they shouldn't be posted.

I like the mmm shape and overall design the best out of any boot in the <500$ range. I also haven't had any problems with the quality, but I don't use them to kick shit either. 

That said, full retail of 900$ is probably not worth it as you can get the shoes mentioned in this thread secondhand/on sale. So if ya want them, yoox or being patient with ebay and b&s is the best bet. The waiting is part of the game.
