As someone with wide feet, Lanvins are amazing.
Just received a new pair of GATS from 2015 02 but there are pretty major variations from my previous pairs. Size and style of font on the inside tongue is different, as well as the stitching on the front of the tongue which does not line up with the edges of the MMM tag, instead going in to the centre about half an inch. Also under the insole there are nails were the rest of my pairs just have printed numbers. The toe of the shoe is also does not match the rest of the pairs. I've compared it to 4 other pairs, two from 2015 01 and two from 2016 02 and this new pair I just received are the only ones that are substantially different from one another. Could these have been made in a different factory or could they be fake?
Leather also seems similarly soft, but much less structured. As seen in the last two images, the unworn 2015 02 pair is significantly more creased than the worn 2015 01 pair.
Top images and left on the final is the new 2015 02 pair I picked up.
left 2015 02; right 2015 01
