    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    sq, your conditioning thread originally made me think you were talking about designer concepts in general.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...

    on a side note, i insta-kopped some lanvins off yoox.

    my first purchase on yoox. when i was opening the box the whole time i was thinking: "whats going to be fucked up?"

    well guess what...they are fucked up. literally. manufacturers defect. why am i not surprised.

    fucking yoox. what a scam. garbage photos, garbage sizing info, garbage item info, garbage models, garbage quality control. its the internet equivalent of marshalls. id rather pay full retail than deal with this sort of hassle.

    the only thing good about them is that they offered an option to send using carbon friendly shipping and box choice


    so you're sending them back right?

    fuck that'd be annoying. A waste of time and must've been a huge disappointment.


    yeah im sending them back.

    Here is what i got. Dye leaking all into the sole around the cap toe. The boutique near my house showed me this on another pair they received once which they just sent straight back to lanvin.

    [​IMG]

    here is what yoox responded with today:

    We are glad to confirm that this is not a defect in the shoe, but rather a characteristic. As you can see in the product page this product has this effect in the front part of the shoe.

    Basically, the picture on the product page is a picture of the exact shoe I got and shes trying to tell me its a feature lol. fucking retards. So i sent her these pics back explaining what the shoe is supposed to look like:
