    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm not a fan of high top sneakers, they seem a bit too juvenile for me, or maybe because I'm of a slim stature. Anyway, I do like sleek low tops and a particular pair of Lanvin in grey wool is calling my name. This is something I really need in my wardrobe so I shall keep an eye out. The painted MMM is no longer a contender since after careful inspection, it resembles addidas sambas too much.

    They're both straight jacks from German army trainers, so that's to be expected.

    RFX you have a ridiculous shoe wardrobe. It is massive.

    My high end sneaker game is non existent. I haven't yet been able to justify dropping $300-500 on the pairs I want and my size (13/46 or so in sneakers usually) never makes it to sales.

    I'd say I have a few pairs, not massive.

    When it comes to shoes though, especially sneakers, there will be a lot of love and hate in this forum. I'll try and post them little by little but I certainly got my flame suit on. [​IMG]

    New CPs make it over the threshold, old ones don't.

    Disappointed with lanvin's S/S 2010, all suede. If there were any leathers I'd insta kop a blue/grey hightop for retail.

    Damn, are these normally 1200? I could have sworn I saw them yesterday at the Neiman in Short Hills Mall, NJ for 850...the only thing making me unsure is your price being 50% higher.
    they were probably partially on sale. no one pays retail for Lanvin's unless A) you cant find the shoe ANYWHERE else or B) you are a fucking retard i'm not joking either. they are like watches. you never pay msrp. my local place here gives me like 35% off plus whatever else i can haggle.

    someone may have already posted these Lanvins, I am too lazy to root through this thread. I tried these on yesterday. You can't really lay low while wearing these, can you?

    It doesn't look too "out there" in this pic:

    Since were in discussion of Lanvin, Robert Downey Jr. wore Lanvins with his tux (also Lanvin iirc) in the Oscars.
