    So basically you're buying them because of the brand name? Save your money until you get your own sense of taste, man.

    Nope, I don't buy brands for the name. I buy them for their quality and craftsmanship... plus, I have the money, so why not?

    I'm just curious because I didn't like many sneakers that I've seen in this thread. I mostly own non-baller sneakers which I like a lot better, I just want one pair or something like that, but I can't find any that I like.

    Well, then, wait til you do, I guess. It's your money. But I suspect your taste is different from that of many here given that post.

    Nice sneakers are nice but your paying through the nose for them - craftsmanship \\ quality doesn't really apply here.

    You really need to handle Lanvin's to appreciate them more so then other sneaks IMO. Go to a store.

    They are really nice materials, just need to find the right designs which don't look retarded. The store in Aus which stocks them cherry pick a bunch from every season that aren't the retarded ones. Same with alot of other brands, Raf is probably the worst for terrible colorways.

    You want a pair, but you don't like any?

    Not limited to Lanvin's, I just want one expensive pair of sneakers. It sucks to have sneakers that everybody else owns anyways and I just want one pair that stands out and looks good.

    but the best sneakers don't even stand out, they're just boring and look good

    Sometimes yeah, sometimes no. Like for example I own some black sneakers which look like the plainest sneakers you'll ever find. But they look classic. But there's also sneakers which stand out and look nice.

    My Rafstros don't run small at all - if anything, a tad big

    RAF run one size bigger, like most designer shoes and many of their sneakers.

    MMM (since everyone asks)
    shoes=one size bigger
    sneakers=tts

    This is, of course, not universal.

    Lanvin are UK sizing and run one size bigger.

    ^ Would agree with that

    For future reference:

    Im an 11.5 US D Width, 11 UK

    45 in MMM Sneaks (44 is slightly too small but still wearable)
    44 in CP
    44 in Raf
    43 / 44 in Lanvin (Depends on the model)

    Sneaks are way more flexible then dress shoes though so don't be too scared

    Resale value is good too

    Do any of you guys wear boots? I know this is a sneaker thread but I don't think there's a boots thread anywhere. So do you?
