Bergdorf Goodman has a bunch of Lanvin sneakers in a bunch of sizes for 60% off if anyone wants to stock up.

Need your helping deciding which sneakers to cop!

A
B

or save my money because both aren't worth it. Looking for a white-ish sneaker that isn't common projects; considering these or a pair of Shoes-Like-Pottery and saving the $100 or so.

I think A is dope. B is hard to wear cuz they're white yet the soles are darker. Lanvin in darker colors are nicer in general tho, so maybe neither are worth it.

I couldn't find the baller boot thread, so I'll ask it here: How is sizing for the Buttero "Brunello" boot?
Iirc people say to size down in Buttero but I'm not sure if that's limited to the sneakers or for boots too.
I'm a US12 on the brannock so I'd want a size 44, right?

Just curious would Bally sneakers be considered "baller" on this site?
Don't see why not. My experience with Bally sneakers has been positive. They're extremely well made and they wear well. The only downside is that my model's sole is a bit soft. I am not sure if it is going to last a long time. However, if you're looking for a "baller office sneaker over $300," then Bally fits the bill.

For those with Hender Schemes...how do you care for the leather? Any special cream I should put on em to keep them from drying up? Also, I'm a little concerned if I get caught in the rain one day (or the ground is wet following the rain) that wet pavement might seriously mash up that sole. Would it be ridiculous to put a topy on the heal and toe?

Related Q for the Hender Scheme owners. Got my first pair. I read somewhere (maybe Reddit?) that one should apply their special lotion/creme/whatever BEFORE you wear them and periodically apply. Did anyone subscribe to this method? Do you use Hender-care products or is there an safe alternative?

Related to Hender - consensus of the better color? I'm a fan of the black because it's black, but the natural has that aging factor (I ended up with a black pair)

As far as I can tell the Hender Scheme leather lotion I have is basically Saphir Renovateur if not exactly Saphir. Even Visvim shoe care shit is just rebranded and marked up Saphir

I sprayed mine with meltonian then just beat them to shit. I feel like black is pointless, natural ages.
