    ^Thanks, and welcome!

    MR Porter's gold chain derbies look more wearable than I imagined.

    They seem to be the version with thinner chains though, not these on raf's website:

    There are three stockists atm with non-gold full-chain derbies which I *thought* at first were identical but they may in fact be three different versions... UPDATE: see stevie's post below which is probably in the right...
    Eliminator's seems to be this::

    This is probably the version The Corner has:

    Probably Park's?

    I like porter's and park's/corners version of the shoe. more wearable.

    But ohh porter's price is 1500? should the gold one more expensive or same price?

    So far, the only place can buy full gold chain one is porter?

    porter priced 230 higher than corner.

    If you order from Porter UK to the States, price is £679.17 + £67.92 duties = £747.09, though USD → GBP is kind of shitty these days compared to just a month ago. Still, a lot cheaper.

    and then 30 shipping, your bank charge 3% fee. some banks don't

    bring it to total about 1280 USD. Yeah still cheaper. About same price as corner's silver version.

    The Corner's silver chain shoe is the same as on Seven's preview site. I am wearing them now and love them.

    Ugh don't remind me about taxes... Anyway, they do look very badass, especially the ones at the corner. Cheers to those that can afford them : )

    I believe the corner's derbies are metal chains. Seven's and eliminators carry the silver version of the chained derbies. And all these variations have the chain inserted flat along the sole.

    I have yet to see the full sideway versions of these derbies in stock, which are much more obvious and probably less wearable. I wonder if they are even going to be under production.

    Would love to get my hands on these,

    but I might have to settle with more subtle variations :bored:

    I'm sorry dude. Raf Simons did the skull keychains way before McQueen.

    Yes. In the eye of the beholder.
