    Perhaps look for shoes with a sleeker last rather than toe shape? (Or shoe shape at that)

    The clunkyness is more so the actual shoe on the type of sole/last I believe than how the shoe is shaped.

    And IMO sleeker lasts always mean a well-shaped shoe anyways
    I don't know much more than that :bored: sorry

    Ok what am I missing here? I'm told "sleeker last" all the time but what does that mean actually if not the shape of the shoe?

    I got you:

    Shape quite similar and style in terms of what they are both trying to achieve, but it is obvious which has the sleeker last

    Good question, i was considering it, but they are not in my size at FF. Also, I am not sure how wearable that color is as well.

    Hopefully they won't look so stubby in person in a larger size.

    no, you had it right, last = shape.

    i would actually recommend a chisel toe for you.

    Maybe I've just been buying too many sneakers recently... they all look good :happy:

    These ones just arrived, so comfortable and I really like them.

    I need a pair of black sneakers. Thinking about these lanvins. Looking for something very basic as I don't want to draw attention to my clown feet. Would be worn primarily with jeans........
