    I'm actually 41.5-42 but my foot is too weird so i'll pass. The Dior German sneakers looks great though.

    As for the BBall his, their CPs right? Don't they often go on sale? I'd wait if possible but if you want them now Revolve should have a coupon out there somewhere.

    Yeah I can get them for cheap, and would have a use for them... but then my sneaks start to proliferate and I was planning to move towards less not more. I dunno.

    I was actually going to suggest the achilles hi as a much better choice but if you can get it for a great price, go for it. How many all white shoes do you own?

    0. Haha.

    I was going to pare my sneak collection down to 1 pair his 1 pair los. I mean how often do I really wear sneaks. The lanvins (still en route, wtf postal service) will probably get a fair bit of use if the fit of them is on just because they seem like they should be versatile. But I was thinking I might snag a pair of raf astros as my hi top, or another pair of lanvins, and just go with the 2 pairs. Still an all white sneak would def have its uses...

    I think an all white shoe is a staple and can be very versatile. Of course it is easy to get other all white shoes that will suit any white sneaker needs since most people doesn't want to spend too much on something that gets dirty easily but I think an all white shoe/sneakers is a must. Great with both dark or light jeans/pants and can pretty much be worn all season. Thats just how I feel though.


    Where is your Lanvin coming from? I read that any delivery from Europe are delayed because of the volcano eruption and I think even Canada is affected with the ash reaching their airspace. So that might be what is causing the delay.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love bball highs. The silhouette you get with them when wearing pants that are strongly tapered is marvelous imo: [​IMG] [​IMG] The upward slope on the body just looks great. And as you can see, they break in well [​IMG] Using converse laces as the cp ones got shredded and I couldn't rethread rofl

    Trust me, you're not the only one. As much as people hate them though, I still love them. Quality on this are great, probably because it is one of the older models, it's been through everything and still looks new. These days though, it only gets worn in the rain but it still holds up well.

    I used to own them in 2000, they were really solid but now I can't stand them with a passion.
