    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.

    The reds were awesome but I liked the dark grey more for some reason.

    I must admit, I did try to get cream colored Jaspers but it never released in the U.S. The rest, I think looked good, it's just the that back cushion that made it impossible to cover the upper part of the sneakers with the jeans/pants.

    That's good to know, those were the ones I wanted. Now I won't feel like I missed out.

    Thought I'd throw the grey suede/leather shell toe CPs I posted in my last WAYWT in the ring. I've owned and tried various CP models and just really took to these. They have some contrast in the design while keeping the same grey tone throughout. I did own and regret selling the court mids, as I thought the leather on those were great as well as the toe shape. Ah well.

    Those are sexy. Just might make me kop out on cps. Can't get myself to cough up $350 for a pair though.

    That's why I tried to get the cream Jaspers. What I have is too much all black sneakers, I do have some others like this red ones, which is probably my favorite pair/style right now.

    Comes in several different colors too, which I will get to more later. [​IMG]

    I think I got them from luisa v back then bc I don't remember anyone else carrying them? They're like the first gen lanvins from 06 when the mens line was revived, toebox is wider and perfect for baggier pants hemmed just right.

    brothersport: mybad. didnt mean to sound like a prick.
    No worries, lol. Just my lazy reading.

    Love all the pronunciation talk, haha.

    sq, your conditioning thread originally made me think you were talking about designer concepts in general. Even two months ago I didn't understand the point of hi tops being worth fuck-all, but this thread is starting to show me otherwise. [​IMG]

    Disappointed with lanvin's S/S 2010, all suede. If there were any leathers I'd insta kop a blue/grey hightop for retail.

    there's a reason you don't want to wear leather shoes in the summer [​IMG]

    nope, that's how you say it in French, the "Lon-vaun" thing is for Americans who have a hard time with the [in] sound and will get you spotted immediately [​IMG] not that it matters but hey...
