    The tubular soles are really narrow so walking in them feels kinda weird if you size down, but not a big deal. The uppers are very flexible, almost like flyknits.

    Thanks dudes. Ordered a pair of the triple black 11.5's.
    There are some stupid prices on the whites though, TBS had a pair for $170 shipped earlier (maybe gone by now).

    On another baller sneaker sizing question: would Henders in a 7 be good for me (12 brannock, 12 nike etc)

    What high-end, relatively plain sneakers do you all recommend for those of us with high arches? Common Projects don't seem to work very well for me. MMM GATs are okay. What else should I try? Thanks!

    I've recorded over 150 pairs of velcros that were listed on Grailed and am not seeing any below a size 39, and dont recall ever seeing it below that size elsewhere.

    Try out Ann D they're the most comfortable/flexible/roomy sneaker ever. It also includes an 'insole' with some arc support unlike the flat one on most sneakers.

    Need a TLDR on MMM Gats, am a size US9.5 in Nike, 41 in CP and Ricks, 42 or 42.5 would work better in Gats?

    Also, do the plastered version fit any differently from regular gats?

    Thanks a lot to any kind help

    I like shoes to fit snug and I wear 42 CP, 42.5 in the classic GATs. I'd suggest the 42 as well. Not sure about birdpoop/plastered fits and how they might differ.

    The mustard Ramones in that pile are almost certainly my favorite sneakers he's ever produced. I get that black-and-white Ramones go with anything, but his greys and browns in textured fabrics and suedes look amazing, especially once they've been worn in a bit.

    Wings + Horns just revealed a couple new silhouettes for next season, and I dig em:

    They're absolutely basic, but they look very refined and well-executed to me, and W+H quality has usually been pretty on-point. (Though the one pair I tried from SS16 seemed a lot more shoddily made than previous seasons...)

    I might grab either of those over a pair of Tournament Highs...

    Obviously some of the styles are pretty tacky, but the basic leather definitely does add something to the aesthetic. And if I owned Ramones I might feel obliged to buy these fat laces.

    I purchased a pair of lanvin sneakers few weeks ago. I think they are very well made, you can see the quality, also i found them pretty much reasonably prised compared to other brands of sneakers. They are fully covered with leather inside out and they have many cushions inside for support. In reality the sole and nappa leather are dark blue.
