    I agree that some that quality = durability...but my question is to what degree. how much more durable is the $700 lanvins vs my $200 colehaans. Although must on here probably frown upon Prada. But I have a pair of American Cups that I have had for 4yrs. I have worn them casually, to the club, even washed the car in them. I must admit they have held up well beyond my expectations and still look good. I currently own several pr's of Prada's, Gucci, Ferragamo, 1 pr Dior...thats it for high end. Everything else is little trendy stuff or Colehaan (actually one of my fav, classic and still stylish)
    Cole Haans are trash, wouldn't wear a pair if it lasted 5 millennia

    How do the lowtop raf simons velcro's fit compared to, say, common projects in the same size?

    same sole = same size or is it wacky like lanvin?

    But, as has been said, with great ballerdom comes great responsibility. Purchase with steez ethics.
    sigged. Those middle YSL's are atrocious, and I usually like YSL. And YSL Rolling are great, much better than CP Achilles High imo. There isn't anything wrong with the Achilles High, but I'd spend the extra couple of $$$ and get Rolling or buy the CP mids which are epiccccc Also FUCK BIZ CAS. Sure, my Paul Smith kop has been getting tons of use (fuckkkkk, I love) but my CP's are begging for wear :< Also no jawnz = crying listi.

    Same thing in navy as those heinous ones above. Not quite so terrible, still not interested though. [​IMG]

    ^I hate that colourway of the hi's. I havr the same shoe in blue / cream and they're great, but the plaid is just awful, I've seen it in person and... no.

    Luisaviaroma = usually 350 or so for lows, 500ish for hi's.

    To be fair, they jumped the shark over a year ago but kinda came roaring back the past few months. Still are really cool for some people who wear them well
