Sacai coming through with a ~ $2700 rider? Am I just misunderstanding their niche?

What do you mean regarding Sacai? What do you think their niche is?

No, but the way the boot looks in proportion to my legs IMO makes them look like clown shoes. I wear a 43 shoe (generally), and then a size 28/29 waist and a 38 jacket at 6'3. I think a size smaller shoe would be perfect for this particular boot. I guess I should have been clearing saying that I wasn't talking like, size 6 feet, but something on the smaller side of average.

I could also be consistently having one of those days where nothing seems to fit right every time I wear them...

Yeah, it's all in your mind.  I am a size 40 jacket at 5'11" and a size 32 waist, and I wear a size 43-44 shoe, generally, and I refuse to wear dark footwear for exactly the opposite reason, I hate if if I feel that my feet look too small.  Yes, maybe I have Trump's small hand aversion.

I think the issue is more the extra bulk added by the harness - I would be totally fine with a Wyatt Chelsea in my size, but the way the harness looks from the front doesn't really jive with how "smooth" I want my pant/shoe interaction to be.

Hmmm... I suppose so.  I like bulky footwear, but a chacun son gout, right?

@gustavobradley I don't know specifically about yours, but I've noticed the Wyatts often look large in peoples' fits. However, this usually seems to be due to the super tight pants people wear when they're trying to get the SLP look. The Wyatts look fine and totally proportional when not worn with painted on jeans.

It's funny, because the issue seems even worse when I wear my SLP denim with them.

I think the problem is that on the SS16 model, the boot was made slimmer but the harness wasn't, leading to it being loose. Coupled with the fact that it sits low on the boot, it emphasizes the thickest part of the foot.

I've come to just embrace the clownishness of my feet (6'1", 30 waist, usually a 38 / M in tops and outerwear with US 12 / EU 45 feet). I find overly sleek footwear doesn't mesh with the way I dress the majority of the time, and it's usually less comfortable than shoes with a shape roughly congruent with the shape of my foot.

I remember shopping for sneakers as a kid, though, and thinking everything looked considerably better on the display model than on the monstrosities the SA would haul out from the back when I asked for my size. Maybe it's just that simpler footwear looks ok in larger sizes, while busier / more detailed stuff tends to look worse.


Unrelated: I picked up a pair of W+H Tokyo twill shorts, and I feel like I can't keep them because they don't have a coin pocket. Fucking SEPTA (Philly's weak excuse for a public transit system) is still on subway tokens, lagging a solid 15 years behind the rest of the urban United States.

Highsnobiety on the original MMM GATs

Quote:
Here’s the cool part about the original Margiela German Army Trainers – each pair was an actual vintage pair of German Army Trainers. Margiela gave them their own personal touch by embossing the tongue with numeric branding, hand-painting the midsoles, and having their design staff doodle on the trainers before shipping them out to retail. Each pair came with an info card reading “Feel free to add your own graffiti,” making each sneaker a literal one-of-a-kind piece.

Yeah, still looking for an(other) deadstock pair or three. I think they're plenty comfortable, but no one on the forum is selling them anymore? what to do
