    AR, if you know any place I can get those black lanvins with white soles in a size 5, please let me know!

    Also, I'll get to adding my measurements soon, but there are unnecessary doubles (Rafstros and Lanvins). Also, is the swag on a scale of 1-5 or 1-10?


    cool. yeah there are some doubles but i think if there are pics of all the shoes it will make a cool archive like ARsix stated. also, the fit of two shoes with the same sole may be different. and as you can see by some entries, two shoes with the exact same outsole measurement have two different "sizes" (i confirmed this with kelvin).

    the swag scale is 1 through 5 + infinite (reserved for extremely special flowers).

    I prefer to have a bit more basic stuff, and perhaps purchase one a bit more out there high-top Lanvin. All blue is too hard to match.

    I will PM you measurement of my shoes tomorrow, i am simply too tired right now.


    cool thanks.

    I think people are going to tend to overstate the swag level of their shoes. New sole lanvin lows are really not all that swagtastic. Rafstros, meanwhile, are kind of the pinnacle. Or DBSS pony sneaks I guess. I see it thusly for sneakers,

    Infinite - Rafstro level / DBSS / some KVAs
    5 - Rick dunk level / KVA's
    4 - Lanvin high level / some MMM GAT highs
    3 - Lanvin low level / Other MMM sneaks
    2 - Common Projects
    1 - Most Generic Mans, SF approved leather PF flyers, etc.

    those are awesome. what size are they? i dont really know wtf u would wear them with though. ud need some black APCs or tech/gabardine slim cut/tapered trousers

    They are size 42. I am a US 10 and am wondering whether they would fit me. My size 43 rafstros fit me fine, basically like a 10.5. I am tempted to see if I can make a 42 work, but it could be an expensive failure.

    I was going to wear them with random diors (black/indigo/waxing moon/gray waxed).

    Well that is where things become more subjective. Some say Rick Owens and Rafstros are swagtastic but others just plain hate them. Like the low-top Lanvins, you may not like them much but when I wear my khaki suit, crisp white shirt and lace up my navy suede/patent cap-toe low-top Lanvins, I feel like a million bucks.

    It doesn't have much to do with whether you like them or not. I am not a fan of most KVA jawnz and I dislike most DBSS but they are undoubtedly replete with swagger. Meanwhile I own 4 pairs of Lanvins and wear them in numerous contexts. I think you have equivocated "swag" with "nice looking".

    Nah, swag is the way it is carried or it's presence. RO dunks and DBSS certainly has their precense but it depends how it is worn and which ones. Not taking shots at anyone but if you stuff the Rafstros under your jeans cuff it carries the same swagger? I think we can both agree the answer is no. Current RO's aren't as "swagtastic" as the RO dunks (the one that actually has a check silhouette).

    I am not saying that all Lanvin low-tops has it's own presence, but certain colorways does. The navy suede and red captoe just has that presence. So does the navy suede/patent cap-toes, it has an understated presence being simple and all but still spits at all the sneakers in the room with it's hint of cockiness.

    RO dunks swag way harder than rafstros...

    Also, in case anyone is wondering, the clear soled Balenciagas run fucking huge. I am a true 46/13 and the 45 was big on me by a half size. Comfortably big though.
