    I like the raf all chrome astro's with white sole much more than those cps. Those used to be on the "too crazy" scale for me but now I'd love to wear them.

    I'm not completely convinced on Lanvins yet. There are some really cool colourways, especially the satin looking ones.

    Moo can you post some nice vans slip ons after those beauties

    Razele, I am both surprised and delighted that you took the dicks out of your hands long enough to type that post.

    Sick burn Moo tell us how awesome you are at failing again

    Kelv, I really would love the dark metallic foil covered raf astro's, I haven't seen in my size yet though

    Lanvins are nice, they are pretty chunk though. I'm waiting to get my new denim in before I decide to keep them or not, otherwise B&S they will go.

    Thinking of putting a bid on some Lanvins I saw on ebay. Can anyone help me out with an authenticity check?

    I kind of like those cp's. Are people just bored of cp, even in all silver? Share a link to the chrome astros if you can.

    the metallic astros are from last season right? i saw those at barneys. they were pretty awesome. obviously, less versatile than non-metallics

    uncontrol: i could actually see those looking decent on you given your wardrobe has lots of florals and reds. plus your lips are red

    Those are real nice. I like the black-and-blue zip-hi's quite a bit myself. I was really considering those silver bball highs, especially over the weekend when they were on sale - I figure there's other shit I need way more urgently, though - but I think they're really sweet, pretty noticeably baller without looking incredibly over the top, a la les astros - even though I love the astros too. Oh, well. Also, Uncontrol, you should def. consider those red Lanvins, for the reasons stated above. But you might have to forgo bootcuts when you wear them.

    The MMM TI was wearing a page back. The mids I like, the lows not so much, still not so bad though.

    Something about the mids, especially in that brown colorway, just seems incomplete to me. Like they're just straight up missing the pump-tongue. I think the white's are okay, but then I'm not entirely sure why someone would go MMM and not CP for a low-profile mid. But to each his own, eh?

    I believe they refer to that color as "Mud"
    looks like someone took a crap on them.
    id much rather prefer the white ones.

    will the MMM store in NY have a decent selection of sneakers for normal prices (i.e. as opposed to inflated prices that boutiques normally have)?
