    my replacement size showed up today and they fit great. i am a 8.5 (usa) in most dress shoes and i went with a 41 in these. the 42 had way to much length. these bottom sole on the 41 measures just over 28cm. the 42 measured 29cm.

    does any know if the the rubberized leather lows fit the same way as the perforated leather/suede model?

    Here you go.
    cool, thanks for the input. what size do you normally go with in mmm, a 42? those do seem a little long at 30 cm for a 42. im interested to see how the sole wears on those.
    Yah, I wear a 42 in MMM, which is 29cm iirc on the outsole. The 30cm outsole on the Balenciaga doesn't look overly long but it might look big overall.

    thanks.

    it seems like the 41s are sold out so i wonder if i could get into a 40.

    Are you normally a 42? If so, I don't think a 40 would be comfortable.

    why do baller sneakers look like roller blades.

    because there is something wrong with your eyes or the cerebral connection that links them to your brain

    I know the sizing guide is saying mmm hi's are slightly bigger than low's, but I found my grail hi's and won the auction a full size bigger. Should I actually buy them or just be a dick and not?

    I would recommend getting the highs in the same size as your lows.

    I'm pretty set on getting a pair of MMM GATs as my first pair of baller sneakers, but I'm torn on which to get.

    These are what I'm leaning towards but I've never seen this color in a fit-pic before:

    ssense.com (only MMM retailer in Canada afaik) also has these, which look cool, but unsure about how they will look IRL:

    Or should I wait to find the painted white ones somewhere?

    decisions, decisions...

    Either get the first ones or wait for painted white if you would prefer those. The painted silver is too theatrical.
