    so does 40/41, 42's seem to always hang around or show up on yoox, or in sales. I have been wearing my all-white patent MMM GAT's the past couple of days, the same ones kelvin has. I didn't think I'd like them much but they grew on me really quickly, I quite like them, though I'd prefer the all-white non patents that nicelynice has.
    Still don't get the whole keeping-them-shiny-squeaky-clean-with-an-eraser thing, those shoes are meant to be fucked. [​IMG] I would love to absolutely ruin the white-soled pair snake posted last page. [​IMG]

    I actually find size 41's easier to find since it is practically at the bottom of the sizing. 44-45 doesn't really fly off the shelves either, I think they just have a smaller number in stock because it isn't the most popular size. Just this last season sale alone, several MMM lows and mids sat on the shelves at Barneys in size 41 and 45. Raf Astros also sat in 41 and 44-45 and I could have returned on the second mark down and still get those in size 41's and 45's. With Lanvin, every size practically sits on the shelf, could have waited for deeper discounts but no regrets.

    With size 42, especially with MMM, I practically had to search the whole US to find the last pair in my size.

    Nah, look now and you'll see plenty of US10-US11's. At least that is the case when looking for Margiela, Raf, Paul Smith, Lanvin, etc... I think CP is the only one I do not search for on ebay so maybe that is what everyone is looking at?

    Plus in the end, I still prefer buying from the stores, just not having to worry about authenticity and customs charges since some ship from UK.

    It wasn't in heaps, there was like one of each. [​IMG] Plus damn, those prices are practically retail and that is why most stay there for a while, why can't they start it at $1 and let the auction run.

    CP Vintage Lows looks great with the navy nubuck.
    [​IMG]

    The other vintage lows looks good too.

    The red suede looks great on these though, so does the grey suede.

    Might have to kop these at full price, although I have a pair of Rod Laver x WoodWood that looks almost like them. Thpugh the materials in these are obviously much nicer.

    Oki Ni has them on stock now. And to those interested, new LV sneakers for the FW10 at http://luxesneakers.tumblr.com/. I figure I'd just post the link instead of shitting up the thread with unwanted pics.
