    Also, skeptical. $200 if used, but BNIB seems a bit too good to me.

    It's not out of the question. When I was at Barney's in December, they had that exact pair for $350.

    two years ago i was browsing for some sneakers. i came across a pair of Generic Man , low tops in a burnt caramel color. they were available at Bird, as well as on Gilt. I unfortunately ordered the wrong size and had to send them back. Then I had asked Jet if he knew of any CPs in burnt caramel -- he did not. That very winter, CPs were released in burnt caramel, but a rather absurd Desert Boot iteration that I wanted no part of !!

    Fast forward some time, and they are now available, much to my delight ! But I will not be wearing any slim-cut navy suit to pair with these in the foreseeable future and as such have no need for them. At the time I was thinking perhaps I would be wearing such attire, though I realize I was a bit naive in thinking so. Deep down I knew there was another way to overcome the handicap of MC* whilst still engaging in jackets and trousers, I just didn't know how exactly.

    * I posted yohji fit there, one fellow thought I was retarded that, after 10k posts, I still didn't know how to hem my pants or tuck in shirt or wear shoes rather than sneaker-boots (?!) lol

    I can't tell if you guys are being hey look like Van's Eras, but are hand made of leather. They come in 2 colors: natural leather and dark brown. They are also "sneakers" with a leather sole which I think is pretty damn cool. They also have an overwhelming presence :foo:

    How do the MMM vag sneakers fit compared to the GATs? Specifically, if I'm a tight 44 in the GATs, could I safely size up to 45 for the highs? Thanks.

    Lanvins in two colors and a bunch of sizes just showed up on Yoox, $390 (on the Canadian site anyway) but SPRINGTIME@YOOX is good for -15% and free shipping which brings the total to $331
