    Nah, no shoes trees. I noticed that the quality of materials used does help with creases. I've had Jordans and Nike that crease easily and badly after one wear while most of my Lanvin, Margiela, Raf, etc... doesn't have that bad of a crease mark in the toe. But if you are really worried then check these out:

    yeah, ive found that the more "baller" the shoe, the better they look with age. im not saying they have to be dragged thru mud[​IMG] but just wear without worries. saves you a headache imo

    It actually blows my mind how expensive rick sneakers are. And I own a pair. I mean, I'm glad I do, but still. And even so, I would still buy a pair of the old dunks if I could find a pair that wasn't still selling at 90% of retail despite not technically being, you know, held together anymore.

    I got to agree with this. I really like my pair of ROs but I am still not sure what makes it so much better than Lanvin or Rafs, which are a couple hunnid cheaper. It certainly isn't the quality, I guess it's just one of those times you pay for the aesthetic/look that no other designers offer?

    I tried on all the current iteration RO sneakers, and I can't see myself ever paying retail for those things. Also, I don't get why people need to rationalize this. I know we are talking about sneakers so people are trying to since the retail price is 1k+ for sneakers, but theres no point. The only reason its "justified" is because rick makes those designs and no one else makes the sneaker the same way. So if you want the design you gotta stomach it.

    Only sneakers I'd pay that much for are Augusta's. Maybe Julius sneaker boots. Not ruling ou anything though. Id pay 1k for guidi sneakers in soft horse maybe or reversed horse. Think that slouchy style would suit my taste in sneakers.

    Not really trying to rationalize it, just trying to see if others can provide an insight that I may have overlooked.
