    Listi, do you have those tan Albins? Wish I could've found those in my size. In any case I have a pair of the white wrinkled patents coming my way.

    Nope, I really really want the tan Albins. My job status for this summer was very uncertain (and now it's fairly certain that I will have a well paying job, still waiting for my final offer, but I have a tentative one) so I was avoiding buying anything. I'm going to buy over the summer if I can find them.

    Im enjoying this thread for the most part, but would everyone please post the brand next to the shoe in picture. Most people have been kind enough to do so, or mention it in their post, but some haven't and just for the future it would be nice

    I have plum leather albins. If you're looking for a low-cost shoe I would recommend them. I'm going to sell mine though.

    Meanwhile, here are some Diors I am considering purchasing. Thoughts?


    Don't. I'm really not a fan of Dior sneakers generally speaking, and the silhouette of that one just looks kind of awkward. With hightops like that, I'd prefer something a bit cleaner, like CP bball highs or something. Those new rick dunks actually look like a decent alternative

    yeah for some reason those diors seem off. cant figure out if its the serrated soles or what.

    i prefer those new ricks as well over the diors. id wait to get your lanvins and see if they fit you fine. if so, you will probably end up wearing those a LOT.

    if you want some sweet diors id get the KvA ones with the bondage shoe laces. those are sooo awesome but cost like 900

    I think its because they look like they were supposed to be low tops :p

    Haha, they're actually AW07 so Hedi era not KVA. I like the black bondage lace but not so much the whites.

    What do people think of the new rick dunks? Slightly sleeker, less bulky. It kinda reminds me of the Scion xB, when it changed form the original box design to the new rounder one; the idea's still there, but it's kinda half assed. Black w/ white sole ones can be seen in the back, as well.


    Still think the original design is the best one. Ugly and looked like something a comic book character would wear. Which makes them awesome. Newer ones just don't look that special.

    I want those purple Lanvins.

    I still have a soft spot in my heart for Rod Lavers tournament edition/clean (I don't have any baller sneakers yet):

    Thanks, those jeans are actually H&M Sliqs.


    And the black pair of sneakers with patent toe I posted earlier were Ferragamo Runway Sneakers.

    I like the newer more refined dunks. The older ones were just too outlandish for my tastes, but while the new ones while have been cleaned up some, it think it still retains the same vibe as the originals.

    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.

    [​IMG] One of my current favorite shoes, thinking about relacing with white laces possibly.

    they're gonna get alot of hate here, but i like those pumas. Just not the red colour. The gray and the navy ones are cool. I have a pair of brown ones that look good with denim. I posted them on WAYWT to universal hate. Admittedly it was a bad compliment to the pants i was wearing.

    I just don't understand this. They look better than a good 75% of the high end monstrosities everyone goes boners for around here.
