    I'm going to go shop around for a pair of white sneakers today. Will probably get a pair of MMM, does Barney's pretty much carry the one's out for this season, or should I check out the MMM store?

    thanks guys..i ended up ordering the red captoe - when it comes in i'll look at them side by side and make a decision on which one to keep.

    How did you go sizing wise? I noticed that their sizing is a bit unusual like 6.5D/5, 7.5D/6, etc... Is the second number the size printed on the shoe/box? If so that would explain me wearing a size 7 in Lanvins since they put it as equal of 8.5D. I just want to know in case I change my mind and pull the trigger on a pair.

    I just the ordered the black ones from NM. The tan/grey ones I picked up from Barney's last week just say 7 on the side of the box, they definitely fit like an 8.5 us. If anyone is interested the Lanvin 7/8.5US measures 11.5" on the outsole.

    Thanks for the confirmation, I'm not crazy then that I wear a 7 in Lanvin and a 9.5-10 in Jack Purcells/Chucks. [​IMG]

    fuck...anything similar out now that is available? I'm guessing those Lanvin trainers you have (ones Usher was wearing in pic you posted) aren't available either. I'm looking to up my sneaker game

    Hmmm... they are listed under S/S '10 releases at Mientus Germany and they usually don't offer old stock online. Either it's actually a re-release or a mistake. I'll give them a call tomorrow morning...

    How about Margiela GAT's ?

    Maybe the Diors were just available outside of the US? I know I haven't seen it in stores or online (US online stores at least) in a while, I know because I have been looking for a pair for myself. Are they still making Margiela GAT that looks like the Diors (w/ the distinct toe design) like these? [​IMG]

    I believe not. =(

    I'm pretty sure these are only available as a velcro version for this season...

    See here: http://www.freshnessmag.com/2010/03/...i-cut-sneakers

    Laced versions with the distinct toe design are only available as low-tops, though not in white/grey, to my knowledge. I could be wrong, though. The whole thing confuses the shit out of me sometimes... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^^ If those were size 42-43, I would jump on the grey desert boot.

    I could live with the velcro version, especially if I can find this color:

    I have to check out Barneys if they have it in stock, I don't remember them carrying MMM when I visited though.
