    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.

    Just arrived in the mail from the nice folks at Blue Owl Workshop

    Wings & Horns low top in charcoal. Very comfortable and true to size.

    I want a pair of those plaster gats.

    General consensus is to size up for MMM GAT, .5 size if you have normal feet and 1 full size if you have wide feet.

    Me:
    CP: 40.5 (Usually just size down to 40)
    MMM: 41.5 (Usually just get the 42)
    Lanvin: UK 7
    Nike: 8.5

    I have a couple TTS GATS and they fit fine, but generally start to hurt the top of my foot due to their constrictness if I wear them all day.

    general consensus is to go TTS with GAT, perhaps your feet are a little wider than average? everyone does have different feet though

    Yes, but many stockists (even the NYC store) don't carry them.

    Do any of you own Feit sneakers, what are your thoughts?

    Possibly, but most people I've run into IRL have always wanted to size up half a size. I generally have to size down to a 40.5 in most shoes, sometimes 40 (SLP Wyatts, CP) and I find a 41.5 in GATS work best for me with 42's being superior to 41's. I'm a 41 in all my other MMM shoes though~

    Do GATs stretch out at all? I just received mine and they're a bit tight. Also, you all think $250 is a good deal? Not as good as the FF sale obviously.

    Same exact sizes here. Add in Lanvin 10, SLP 44 (could do 44.5 if they existed), and Y-3 11.

    I think I might get either the navy or burgundy version though. I don't know yet.

    Bought a pair of Balenciaga Urbans recently (have just put them up for sale here on SF).
    Word of warning - if you're a half size, do not size down. I usually wear 43.5, wear 43 in CP... and 43 in Balenciaga was definitely a mistake, needed a 44.

    That first pair are Burberry sneakers, not Feit.

    I dont have any Feit sneakers, but do have a pair of Feit boots. Barely got to wear them because it was a very light winter.

    Incredible quality. Those guys really care about construction and leather.

    Retail is overpriced imo, but I am always seeing them for 30-50% off.

    Because of the leather sole they are a bit stiff at first, but once they wear in they become very comfortable.

    Any recommendations for a pair of white or neutral colored suede/nubuck sneaker? Preferably minimal branding and capping at the price of $300.
