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

    +1

    whites are my favourite out of the mmm gats low.

    greys arent bad either. one of the only times ive handled a product in-store [​IMG]

    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.

    Those seem really marked up to me. Tres Bien has them for 300-330 (excluding VAT) and they have the same grey lows as ssense. They don't have the painted silvers but do have the painted greys (which are better imo) and painted whites.

    this seasons painted lows have grey suede unlike barney's tan suede so be aware of that too

    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:

    http://www.ssense.com/men/product/ma...sneakers/35098

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

    decisions, decisions...


    MMM GATs are only baller in the sense of price. unless, of course, you are talking about the ones with pony hair or covered in velvet flock.

    Weird question...but has anybody noticed a difference with the new season Common Projects smell? My older Achilles and Summer 09 editions smelled like wonderful italian leather when they were new [​IMG] My new season Achilles lows I just got sort of smell like a shoe store, you know like a new pair of Nikes or something. I know most of you get what I'm talking about. Anybody experienced this?

    I like my sneakers as much as the next guy, but I've never stuck my face into any of them and taken a deep whiff.

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

    i am normally an 8.5 (us) but i take a 41 in mmm's. the 42s fit me really long.

    if the 40 balenciaga is ~ 28cm they might work.

    anyone have a 40 or 41 they can measure?

    A brand new pair of 'higher end' shoes you've never smelled the leather? Not weird at all if you ask me.....just like any other leather product....It's not like I'm talking after 20 wears or after somebody else has worn them.

    Nope. I've never smelled my sneakers, dress shoes, belts, or wallets. I did sniff my ToJ really quick after caressing it though. [​IMG]
