    Eh, if I go to a physical store I want to walk out with the shoes not go home and wait 5 days for it to be shipped from China. Its a good store to try on and go home and order from another site though, lately the stock has been really crappy, look at Lanvin and Margiela, they've been in Administration for around 2 months now, their sales aren't bad though, that is if you can get it working.

    Half the store is filled with crap like Zanotti and now Versace. They even got HBA clothing.

    Man i'd rather have clothing stores over sneakerboy anyday, every other countries have so many good retailers that are massive and tonnes of brands.

    What's everyone's experience with SneakerBoy? Are they pretty good shipping to the states? USD is pretty strong against AUD, so I was thinking of placing an order for some SLPs.

    I might be completely mistaken, but IIRC they do not ship to North America.

    EDIT: gotcha, ok only Balenciaga



    Agreed! :lol:

    They don't ship Balenciaga to the states. Everything else, they do. I'm wondering more on customer service, processing orders and whatnot.

    From what I can remember every time they had a sale, users here say they list the MSRP as the purchased price for customs.

    Well they charge customs into the price now, so buyers aren't charged upon delivery.

    well picked these margielas up over the weekend. had someone buy them for me in
    singapore as they don't sell these in manila. my 1st pair.
    i have never owned a pair and could not speak about sizing but they
    are a bit snug.

    i am a 9uk lanvin and around 10.5 in most sneakers adidas/nike/puma
    9.5 barrie last etc..

    only way i could make them work is sock less. I'm more likely a 44 in MMM

    MM's definitely fit TTS, whether 3 strap or anything.

    FWIW, I'm a 10.5 like you in Nike and most likely other sneakers and I wear size 44 margiela GATS comfortably.

    I wear a 9UK Lanvin as well, but my GATS are 43 and fit great. Lanvin only come in whole sizes so I suppose that would make sense. Don't MM come in 43.5 though? They will stretch a bit and be goddamn comfortable. Great sneakers though by the way.
    What's up with these? They look like they would be comfy.

    I'm a 9UK in Lanvin and a 10 in most shoes, and 43s are even snug sockless. I wear 44s in GATs and 43.5 sockless.

    Just got my Valentinos, will post pics tomorrow. I am a TTS 43 i got 42, they are tight but not too tight. I don't use the top two eyelets there are 8 that i use and worn with thin socks haven't tried thick yet.

    Basically my advice for sizing is size down half if you can, sometimes its a pain trying to get half sizes.

    Less than half price (it was used) the good thing with the tightness though is that i don't need to lace them up so i just shove em in, looks much cleaner. Pics soon!
