    Balenciaga lows, they do not look bad at all.
    they look great. that whole getup looks solid as well.
    baller sneaker addiction pretty much over for me, gonna make a spreadsheet of all the clothes/shoes I am gonna be selling, should be a number of baller sneakers, including some grails for you dus. Don't pm me though, I don't do pm's and I am not selling anything just yet.
    so sad I don't foresee my interest abating at all. ___ The Lanvin patent caps above are great; not too plain for me. Same with the silver caps, very nice. But the lizard Lanvins are ridiculous.

    Benefits of being married to a super model, he probably gets them for free. After Kerrs pregnancy, I think her very first runway show was Balenciagas as well and Oralndo has been sporting the brand heavily since.

    I think most of these celebs dont pay for half the shit they wear. At least the ones in the lime light.

    Celebrity advertising. It's so obvious, and you're blind if you don't see it.

    Exactly, the "free" advertising that a company gets from marquee celebs exceeds the clothing they give them 10 fold. I wouldn't be surprised if OB got a check with those shoes.

    +1. no way he pays for them. no public person pays for half the shit they get. the swag baskets at the oscars were worth $100,000. one photo of the right person wearing $500 sneakers could yield thousands of dollars in sales.

    By the way, RFX, your sizing matrix just saved me from paying 300 euro on B&S and getting a pair of Lanvins that would have been too big. Thanks.

    I'm going to miami in a couple weeks, and I've been calling to see who stocks lanvin sneakers so I can kop a pair. In case anyone wants to know, Barney's Co-Op does not, The Webster has one pair of hightops, the Lanvin boutique doesn't have mens anything, and Neiman Marcus has like 15 different pairs of Lanvin low captoe sneakers.

    I'm sure celebrities get much of their stuff for free but if you're rich, how hard would it be to just walk into Barneys/Saks/Neimans/etc and pick out the most expensive sneakers they had for sale?

    The markups at the Webster are Gravity Pope like.
