    can you get Lanvin, Raf, CP sneakers resoled, if they wear out?
    you can probably get a cobbler to cut off the worn portion and replace with vibram on new sole lanvins. i doubt you can do it on rafs and CPs because the sole is pretty shitty/thin.
    http://egocomplex.com/#893917/237FWM4-DH http://egocomplex.com/#893916/237FWM4-DH those also, FW2011 has some sick ones coming out ima kop for sure. http://www.hlorenzo.com/#/mens-julius/37/1
    hmmm. the only thing tempting about those first ones you posted is that they are pig leather. i wouldn't do it if i were you. the toe area is not attractive. the new ones coming out however are awesome as hell. save your $$ for those. they look like the margiela velcros only taller and with a "darker" sole. id been wanting those twisted boots in black. the white is tempting but doesn't look as good i dont think. i dont know. what does a julius 2 in shoes equate to?

    Another PH I wouldn't mind owning, I like the somewhat distressed (washed?) navy leather used. Sole also has a low-profile RO-sole-look. [​IMG]

    also: selling mint MMM distressed black high tops + mint MMM black pony hair gats + new MMM blue velvet flock gats (black underneath) for 1200 shipped. all sized 41

    Someone should quickly take this offer for all three and flip them. Maybe I'm the only one but I'd consider dropping 1k on those distressed black highs alone if they were a 43

    Sq, I'm guessing the break down for the individual prices of the sneakers would be: Hi's 600, Low's 300 each? Since it's mint, I'm sure you can go higher. I'm interested to see how much someone would pay for the Hi's.

    Those are sorta meh.

    I would like either navy or black, grey, charcoal with matching colour sole, maybe satin toe and trim. Something like that.


    Brown's has two pairs

    I think I'm either grabbing the purple off browns or the blue off lanvin's site

    yeah that was basically the logic. i can probably get someone on sufu to pay a good deal more considering there isnt even a high top of that model being sold nowadays.

    those are not that rare (distressed high mmm). they pop up from time to time. someone here was asking $600 brand new but i think it never sold and they are on sufu used for $250...

    How necessary are big toes? Considering having mine amputated to fit Sq's sneaker collection.
