    These Giuliano Fujiwara's are dope.

    I'm not feeling this too much, it reminds me of a hybrid of Air Jordan VII and Nike Huarache w/ CP soles.

    Those are awesome, how old are they? It looks like its still in good condition, which can be worn to run errands here and there.

    Thanks dude! I want to say over 6-7 years old now? you can see all the pores in the leather and everything, "they don't make them like they used to. the heels are the main problem. also, they are insanely lightweight, literally paper-light compared to the heavier current replica ones.

    If you have an extra shoe trees lying around I would suggest putting it on those sheos to get a little bit of shape back. What is wrong with the heels? If it's coming apart, try and get them glued at the cobbler and replace the insole and you're good to go. Those would be a great pair for spring/summer.

    ahahah shoe trees? man i'm 20 i give no fucks about my shoes, theres a reason i wear chucks most days. i got them glued and they're okay in that sense, but the heel is wearing through and they said they can't do anything about it. i just keep putting off footwear purchases.

    I'm not that much older than you and I have shoe tress for about 80% of my dress shoes/boots. [​IMG]

    Rolling up socks and stuffing the toe should help as well though, just to keep its shape.

    It's all good. I just think it'll look much better when/if you wear them again if the toe part maintains its shape.

    I just bought those Margiela hi tops and I haven't figured out how to wear them. The tongue is very long and quite thick, what pants do you wear with them? Do you always tuck the pants into them?

    I wear them with slim, tapered jeans and dress pants, and yeah I always tuck my pants into the shoe. On the other hand, MMM's lookbook did not tuck them in.
