1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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'd say size down one (usual designer sneaker size). I went TTS once and they were huge. Look out for the strapped ones those looked pretty sick.

    I'll be contrarian - I went TTS and they fit pretty spot on :/ I guess I could've sized down if I wanted to but it'd be super snug.

    I got them in 44 - I take a 43 in A1923 zips, 10.5 in Vibergs/Red Wings, 44 in Nikes/Geobaskets.

    What's Raf Simons F/W 15 looking like? All I see is the Adidas collab... Browns did post that they got the white velcro highs with a different outsole though.

    I just won a pair of Yeezy 350s in black in a raffle. Where can I maximize my return? eBay?

    What do you guys think of these margiela motos? I've been hunting for some non laced sneakers for a about a year or two and these might be my favorite so far. Thoughts?

    I like them a lot, though it'll look like you're cosplaying some sort of Deus Ex cyberpunk character

    Eh good cosplay is like love, hard to describe but obvious when spotted out in life. Bomber with stacked jeans and suede ankle boots: Kanye cosplay?, All SLP wit the hat: Harry Styles cosplay? MM GATS SF cosplay? Personally I think the older high top margiela moto sneaker in black was like Tetsuo cosplay and I could be ok with that.

    All I know seem to know as of now is that laceless sneakers tend to evoke that semi futuristic footwear vibe. The bigger sneakers brands have been tapping into it big recently wit the Nike Sock Fly's and Adidas slip on Flux type sneakers and a matte suede slip on high top rather than some plastic made in china hype toy might move me to pay up for these... but what the fuck do i know

    I like the new Margiela high tops quite a bit, they look a lot better than the triple strap ones imo

    If those are new, they are a mid-top rehash of an old (*-2010) sneaker-boot hybrid. (Not a criticism, just an observation.)

    DAMN thanks for posting detail of the old ones, they really do look like akira biker shoes. I dunno if I would be comfortable, at first, wearing those without something equally futuristic to ride on but they are NICE. I wish the new low version had a tonal sole instead of the gum sole but maybe some wear or a dying would help. I might pull the trigger.... the black version is up on farfetch but I've never been into black gats and the navy may show the details better

    Metallic leather effect on the black looks good in product pics...

    Are those a real thing? They're over the top in a good way.
