    Haha. I wonder if you could bleach the soles or something, do you think? Probably not worth it, but possible.

    here was a post a made a long time ago (December 30th, 2009) about the same problem
    the other day i was at a store here in DC that sells lanvin hitops and the salesman showed me a design flaw in a pair. it is the winter 09/10 hitop with the orange satin captoe and brown leather sides. this model (like basically all other lanvins) has a white sole and the brown dyes in the leather on the sides of the shoe was being absorbed by the sole. you could see a very subtle brown color bleeding into the side portions of the sole. the guy told me it affected all the sizes they got of that one model and that it was apparent in boxed and the display model. i guess lanvin is aware of it and they are sending em back. doesn't seem to affect the ones with the blue captoe since they have a non-leather material on the sides. obviously i love lanvin shoes, just watch out for this sort of thing in the future. im glad the salesman pointed it out to me.

    Couldn't you just get some white paint and paint the soles? They'll be "custom" and "arty" after that....

    Yoox gets their stuff from other online stores, either that or they are affiliated with them. Last time I bought a pair of shoes from Yoox, the box was filled with papers from another webstore. No wonder my order took a while to get to me since they had to get it from Europe, the store that had my order in stock, and then send it to me after they receive them. So I always assumed Yoox sells whatever is leftover or returns from other stores, some are probably B-grade products as well.

    Would kop if I weren't broke for the moment, new sneakers are in order for me. The black mids are nice, but the tan color looks a lot different from the earlier pictures that were floating around the internet. Not sure I like they way they turned out. Has anyone seen them in person?

    Yeah I don't know what happened there either with the tan ones, but imo they look god awful. Reminds me of the shoes I saw at the Holocaust museum. [​IMG]
