    The non-baller thread is styling on this thread.

    BRB paying more money for something that looks shittier.

    Strong logic fail.

    It's not cool to buy sneakers that don't come with dust bags. Also not cool to rock Made in China joints.

    I agree, now that I see them side by side they are fugly. Jesus I miss the older ones now even more. Change was for the worse, of course the problem is as well my favorite ones are the oiled calf version which are so rare.

    I think after a few wears, it'll settle down or it will even out once the front stops curving up. Here's the same model in all white but you can see it is more evened out in the toe area.

    Dude, if your foot is touching the front of the shoe that's obviously way too small. I think it would be pretty painful if you walked around for a few hours like that

    It's touching it but not constricting or pinching at all, does that make sense? It's not uncomfortable per say but I just feel it. I tried them on with thinner socks and it is much less of a problem. I could still exchange for a size 42 easily so no big deal if I feel the 41 is too small.


    money shot. looks good without laces too!

    Your turn to get a pair. [​IMG]

    RFX the way you're talking about the fit reminds me of how my DBSS fit. I know nothing about RO sneakers but I think this may just be the effect of that bulbous type of toebox. If it feels good everywhere else I probably wouldn't mind it, but if it's no trouble for you to try the next size up you may as well.

    is there anything ever that lane hasn't changed his mind about?

    lol, so what...thats important cuz then I won't buy shit I will regret. I don't like the narrowness of these RO sneaks from these recent seasons.

    What do you mean by "narrowness" on current seasons RO?

    RFX the way you're talking about the fit reminds me of how my DBSS fit. I know nothing about RO sneakers but I think this may just be the effect of that bulbous type of toebox. If it feels good everywhere else I probably wouldn't mind it, but if it's no trouble for you to try the next size up you may as well.

    I'll give it a shot, my main worry about sizing up is that the shoe might look overly huge. The 41 seems just about right for a shoe that looks so bulky. I wish I could have both sizes side by side to see how big the difference is between the two. I got to PM Synth to see how if his pair has settled down and made more room.

    thats why hide-san has a giant ass package being sent to me as we speak, and I have a Rick biker leather coming in the mail too, right? Problem is im not buying $20 leopard tees on mbok so it takes me longer to make a decision on big ass purchases, aight?

    Lane's long term history of copping has refined his decision making abilities to the point where he does not make mistakes like mere plebes of sf. That combined with his crystal ball makes him a modern day fashion nostradamus.
