    fujiwara probably noob
    yea, prob. i remember google searching gf for sneakers awhile back when i wanted to make an expensive sneaker cop but didn't run across those. I've seen fujiwara lows that kinda look similar but not those.

    I'm a fan of the patent toes they do (a sorta military detail), but I'd have to see those IRL. PF Flyers did a bunch of similar combinations over the past few years to mixed results. I wish they used grey/black soles on those, as well (I'm all about black/neutrals over white).

    I think that is one of the downside of the new Lanvin sole, I don't think they can make it with a different color outside of white. They can change the color of the toe part with the ridges but the rest are always white. I wonder if they choose to do it that way or if it is the only way they make it?

    Went to maxfield's today. They had a pair of Lanvin mids. Blackish nylon, camo pattern. Very dark and subtle. They didn't have my size. Had they had them, I'd have bought them. Nifty shoes. [​IMG] Got the grapevine working through paris right now, though. Hopefully we'll find someone who can get them via backdoor or whatever. [​IMG]

    I'll take the ones on the left. The right.. I dunno.. Those would actually be pretty good on the motorcycle, though, with the strap to "hide" the strings so they don't get caught in anything... (right right boots boots blah blah blah go ride your own fucking motorcycle the way you want to ride it, wearing what you want to wear).

    Hrm.

    The thought of wearing a pair of sneakers that costs more than I paid for the motorcycle I ride is kinda amusing.

    Sneakers are pretty much all I think about related to clothing these days, it is ridiculous. I basically only read this thread, waywt, RP, random, and the occasional noob "how do I put on my socks" thread for laughs. I have no clue as to what goes on in the rest of SF

    I have ONE pair of sneakers, those leather + zip converse ones, they're OK. I don't love them, I bought them because I needed a pair of sneakers really badly. Could keep them as beaters and work these ones into fits.

    Dude. Those rule. GET THEM. An another note, my dad said he got rid of all those beatle boots when they moved out of the old house. Sorry. EDIT: At $260? Yes. Get them. If you don't like them, y ou can always unload them for about the same price. Hell, if they were a half-size bigger, I'd be tempted.

    Buy them and flip them for purchase price if they don't work, no money is at risk. I bet you wear them more than you expect. I like them.

    Those pictures are of legit sneaks, but what you get from the seller may not be legit. Buyer beware on all Lanvins from China.

    1.5-2 sizes larger than your true size. IE I would wear a 9 in Lanvin and I'm a 10.5 / 43 in most shoes.
