Footwear is in. I am going to try to get a batch online within the week.

5 big boxes. OMG.

Cheers,

Fok.

I would assume not a chance in the world that any of the footwear is a size 40, right? Stupid tiny feet baldy[1].gif

And if there was . . . it would fit too large.
and if there were a 45 for me, it would fit too small

I just opened all of the boxes.

There are a bunch of black single monks, a single pair of brown single monks, and a single pair of olive double monks. There are also a few pairs of combat boots, one is the black suede pair with the spats, but sadly, the spats seem to be missing. I'll ask Robert if they are lying around his studio, but I doubt it. There are the Robert Geller German Army Trainers, in a suede/jute combo, both in army green and in the light grey/natural colorways. I was prepared to be underwhelmed by those, but they look surprisingly well made and interesting and quite different from the Margiela versions. There is a couple of pairs of the BBhighs, but I may be buying one of those myself. (I also need rewards, you know...) But there are two pairs... There are a lot of the side zips (which Robert calls the Chelseas, in dark grey suede, olive suede, etc... There are a smattering of the loafers on a lug sole (seems like something that White Mountaineering or Yuketen might put out) as well as a lot of derbies in a variety of combinations - navy, black, green, green leather and canvas, and so on.

In addition, I'll be putting up a bunch of knitwear, including several cotton zip cardigans with solid fronts panels and tonal melange arms and back panels. All 48s and 50s should really check out the shirts, tees, etc... that we still have in store.

Cheers,

Fok.

Oh man, I hope there's some side zips / combat boots in my size. I need a Geller expert to tell me how they fit! (Mello/Desi/Someone)

Combat boots apparently fit big:

Curious about the sidezips sizing as well.

 

Also, I have the GATs and they are really well constructed, but fit about a half size small. I'm a Margiela GAT 43 and had to size up to a 44. They have a very shallow toe box.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Indigo stains are my addition.

The CPs all fit like CPs. I wear a 40 in all of them. Sneakers, zip/elastic/combat boots, monkstraps, everything.
Could have sized up for the suede/elastic boots to make room for thick socks but I am fine with how they are. A little tight but it's probably better that way so they don't slide around, and form to my foot as they break in

Some people seem to have a more complicated experience, so I won't speak for them.

Hightops are the bball highs you're taking right Fok? Those look great, you definitely deserve them though.
post #3494 of 6221
I'm taking the grey pair. Those are the navy in a size 42, and will be up for grabs.

Cheers,

Fok.
