I dont know if its more impressive that you have Lanvin sneakers from that long or that you have Lanvin sneakers from that long despite being able to go through a pair of GATs every 6 or so months. Ive heard stories of peoples' gats lasting 2-3 years.I agree. Lanvins are probably best "bang for buck" in the luxury sneaker market, but they're not for everyone.
1) Their soles are HARD but last a long time. I still have some Lanvin sneakers from 8+ years ago that I wear within my regular rotation. Comparatively, I have to replace my GAT's (softer gum sole) every half year.
2) Large toe box means that for people with narrow feet, they're not a well fitting shoe. You want a decent amount of room because the toe box itself is not very flexible/soft and takes a while to break in. Compared to GATS or even CP's which are much softer and can be comfortable on your first wear.
Overall though, the leather and materials "feels" like higher quality than GATs, but I'm not an expert on leather quality.
