    ^i know they are all awful.

    dick dunks, MMM and Ceepees are the only fashiony sneakers I like. i had and sold many raf sneakers. lanvin are ok. dior sneakers are like the FOBiest shit you can buy and to own more than one pair is horrifying.

    Those lanvins are attractive.. I wonder why the largest and most trendy get fawned over so much more than the low ones. It's easy to find flashy hi's but equally flashy lows are challenging, those seem to do it just right imo.

    The only Fashion Sneaker I have found that felt like they where worth the money. Much better quality then the Lanvins I had. There going on about 2 years solid wear. [​IMG]

    those all saint sneakers and boots on the site don't look terrible. There is a allsaint store opening on newbury st in boston soon. Will probably try to snag basics or something when they're on sale

    I probably own less sneakers than most members here, got pretty much all I need w. Lanvin all black hi, MMM all white low, MMM white high, RO black/white dunks and Adidas stan smith.

    heres my contribution... my current favorite are these y's object dyed sneakers. I have other "baller" kicks being a few pairs of lanvins and some dior but these are amazing. I just located some margiela german army trainers so you can add that to the list as well. [​IMG]
