Hi, I'm cleaning out my closet, and I have the following items for sale. I would rather sell here than eBay, for a variety of reasons. All prices include priority shipping within the 48 states: Puma Platinum/96 Hours black strap sneakers Size: 9 american/42 european, D width (true to size) Condition: 7/10, I wore these around a good amount, but they are in great condition just the same. Shipped Cost: $40, retailed for $300 I love the style of these badboys. There are no laces, just two straps that button closed. Also, the tongue has a punch out hole on top. Fully leather uppers (inside and out) and a tough rubber sole. Deep rich black. Much respect to Neil Barrett for making these beauties. Made in Italy.
APC pinstripe jeans Condition: Brand New Without Tags Size: 30 "Cure", unhemmed (a touch more than 35" inseam) Shipped Cost: $60, purchased for $147 from apc.fr These are pinstriped jeans from last summer season. I bought them and didn't return them in time. Doh. I tried them on once... WAAAAY too slim for me. They follow the standard cure sizing. They're a sky blue jean with a vertical white pinstripe running down the jeans. The color is a bit stronger than it appears in the image. I really like these, they simply do not fit and have been sitting in my closet for a year now.
Helmut Lang elastic trainers Size: marked as a 9, fits like a 10-10 1/2 D (more like the latter) Condition: 8/10, I wore these around for a few days last summer, they're just too big.
Shipped Cost: $100, retailed for $320 These are badass shoes. End of story. No laces here either, the shoe is held shut by wide elastic bands on the sides. A combination of leather, suede, and open mesh nylon on the sides, these shoes are insanely comfortable and very rugged. Extremely well-made shoes. From Helmut Lang's last season, too. Comes with both shoe bags and the original box. I strongly doubt you'll ever see these for sale again. Note: the shoes don't look wrinkled when worn, the elastic pulls them tight.
If you have any questions/offers, let me know. I take paypal only. Thanks, -Andrew

Oh! You had to go and post yet another of my weaknesses... Lang sneakers. And THEN you had to post them in MY SIZE and at a good price!

Great shoes; I'm really trying to resist snatching them up.

You're evil! I don't have to listen to this!!
But, the only thing keeping me from buying these is that I've bought 3 or 4 pairs of shoes already this month.

If nobody has bought these in about two weeks or so (and something tells me they'll sell WAY before then), definitely drop me a PM.

I got a lot of questions about the soles of the shoes, and so I'm posting one in the thread:



As you can see, the soles are in tip-top condition, they don't hardly look worn.

If anyone has any other questions/etc, feel free to ask.
