    I handled a pair @ the boutique. They're pretty nice... whether they're worth the $ is your call.

    bad list imo, they picked the worst of the adidas collab. my list would have the holographic space highs, rivets, 05 motos, and the new crazy platforms that light up when you walk.

    That woven shit is crazy. Very cool, but a bit too "special" for me. So what's the difference between Premiere and Avant Premiere MMM?

    If you're in Australia, Matches sells them @ 360 AUD, if you're looking at purchasing them.

    Hows the quality on Valentino sneakers? Any alternatives I should be considering if I like low-top Open sneakers?

    i got some lanvin sneakers on closeout locally but the laces seem like they have been replaced
    with the high top ones and they are way too long.

    anyone know where i can get a generic pair of army green laces for any low top shoe?
    or can make suggestions? i tried ebay and there are way too much options for length etc.

    does anyone know the correct length? thanks in advance

    lanvin lows? mines are approx 114cm I took my spare included ones to measure them
    I believe previously someone here stated they were able to get free spares at a boutique or something.

    i've got those in white and grey patent cap toe very nice wish i could afford a few other colours, really like the baby blue with darker grey cap toe and the maroon ones too.

    pretty sure those aren't originals laces, its meant to be waxed. doesn't really match with the rest of the shoe either.

    yeah that one is nice too, the only thing i would want is for the toe-box to be slightly slimmer because i hate fat chunky sneakers, but nevertheless lanvin captoes are awesome

    get the original colour i tried to find that colourway of yours on google but i can't. better to get waxed indeed cuz the ones they substituted make it look crap

    Are guidi boots supposed to be so narrow I even sized up from my regular size. I thought I would get a quicker reply in the baller thread.
