1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    These beautiful Neil Barrett sneakers are a combination of matte and patent leathers, and have been coated in latex paint. As a result, the paint chips off, and slowly reveals the black patent leather. Think of them as a working metaphor for the future of this planet: Gently, languorously, the beautiful whitewash is peeled away - beneath lies the shining, iridescent carapace of the Níðhöggr , ever gnawing on the roots of the world-tree.

    Purchasing these sneakers affords you a stunning, compelling glimpse at the clarity of being. I pray that you retain your sanity in the face of such maddening self-awareness, though perhaps madness would be a welcome respite from the inevitable calamity that awaits us all. You may wear them with jeans, if you must.

    They are a size 43, which runs the same as Common Projects (although slightly wider), and is good for a US 10.5. Note that these are far more comfortable than your favorite pair of Achilles, notwithstanding the philosophical shock.

    Your description sold me. If you ever happen to have 41s, please put up a similar description and I'm all yours.

    Sorry my friend, there's no way you'd squeeze in.

    I just wasn't wearing them. I have a pair of balenciaga high tops that I wear pretty much whenever the urge to wear high tops hits me, and they were just so sad and lonely in my closet. Super comfortable, though, I found them way nicer than CPs
