    I wear a 42-43 in CP I wear a UK9 in cap toes. Don't size down. If anything go tts or up 1. I never understood people telling someone else to size down. You want your toes to not have breathing room? Best bet is to go try them on yourself

    The runners definitely fit smaller than the Cap Toes though.

    My sizing:
    US10 in Nike (prefer a thumb's width of room)
    42 in CP (could wear a 41 though if they weren't so narrow)
    Lanvin (UK) 8 in cap toes, but have room in those
    Lanvin (UK) 8 in runners and they fit perfectly.

    Anyway, you might be good in a Lanvin 8 in the runners is what I'm saying.

    US 9 = Lanvin 8. I have the exact pair you posted, and they do not fit an extra size large. Everybody seems to think you can size down for Lanvin shoes, but I'm a US 12 and I have never ever encountered a pair marked 10 that fit me (I've owned more than 15 pairs of Lanvins since 2010 or so, and they are all 11s), so it is 100% complete bullshit/myth as far as I'm concerned.

    I'd be interested in hearing whether any of you guys have ever tried actually running in Lanvin (or other fashion labels') "running" sneakers?

    I've had my eye on Lanvins for a while, but I'd want them to actually run in them, not just as a casual sneaker. Not sure if that's a good idea. I've been running in Kayanos for as long as I can remember. I doubt a designer-label product would be able to compete with a specialist running-shoe brand, but maybe I should try?

    to be fair, if you're a 9 and taking a size 8, that's sizing down isn't it? i take a 8-9 normally, and am a lanvin 7 in cap toes, which are still a bit roomy. and to be honest, it really depends where you're getting your lanvins. if you're at the mall (barneys, bergdorf), they have often brought me US sizing 7 when i requested a "7" and was obviously a lanvin 6, so it didn't fit.

    (For clarity:) Lanvin sizing is UK sizing, so I'm a 12 US and I buy size 11 Lanvin -- that is buying true to size. Sizing down would be buying Lanvin 10s (for me), and I've risked it twice but I ended up with two pairs of shoes I had to resell because they were too small.

    anyone else feeling the FOG highs? i think they look pretty dope...very surprised that they haven't sold out (or most of the other stuff). maybe there is some rationality in this world (not).

    but seriously, 995 for the high tops (in range of ricks), or some track pants for 995...hrm...

    I'm feeling them for sure.. but 995 euro/$1180 USD? I'm a supporter of what Jerry does for the most part but the pricing this collection was absurd. $900 gym shorts is where I draw the line. Actually, far before then.

    i like the classic black nylon + white sole FOG Highs, but just way too expensive for me to purchase. definitely worth owning since its a unique and statement piece.
