    Ohmygod. Those are kinda awesome. I'd need a techy sci fi white jumpsuit too for Utopian space colony teenager swag.
    I think you could do better (as a steezy "Utopian space colony teenager "). Those are pretty traditional other than the soles -- and I have to agree with RFX, there's something of a crazy luxury yacht about the sole. [​IMG]
    Sole reminds or a yacht for some reason. [​IMG]

    Gucci ss10, the same seasons the womenswear went batshit on hardware in the best possible way. I don't think they look as good from the front, though. [​IMG] Reposting these Les Hommes sneaks because they deserve a better pic than the one crummy eBay photo from last time. Shoe guy at Toronto Holt Renfrew asked if they were Lanvin when I wore them in. [​IMG] Burberry Prorsum ss11 sandals (there was also a crazy "high-top" sandal" version with way more rivets & metal that was a little too much for me) [​IMG] And Balenciaga always deserves mention, I forget what season these are so they may have been posted already.

    I actually bring those up all the time, I think I'm the only one who likes it. It's one of those sneakers that I wouldn't mind owning but will never be able to wear. Synth could probably pull those off.

    I love those Prorsum sandals and the Ricks that RFX posted. I prefer the wings to stay on the sides instead of merging inwards. I would wear those. I wish the tongue was a tad shorter.

    Found the crazy pair: (also prorsum ss11) [​IMG] And I don't think anybody's posted the Margiela chain high-tops except in the navy-charcoalish colorway. [​IMG] I would have bought already if the harness piece around the back was a different color/texture/anything to set it apart, like the white pair with tan suede trim. Instead I'm waffling.

    SQ, I can't believe you're selling the distressed highs... If I had them and they didn't fit I'd probably keep them on display as a trophy haha.

    I'm a 41 in MMM... it will take every ounce of self control not to kop for the sake of my pocket due to recent splurges.
