    The only thing I've bought locally in months is a pair of APCs. Otherwise, it's all internet shopping.

    When you coming on back to Chicago? I am also heading back to Madison soon, we should do it up...

    I say go for it. I have actually been looking for some Pierre Hardy's myself but can't find a place on the net that has a good selection. I tried Lanvin's and after a while they didn't feel very comfortable so I sold them. So far the only Designer sneakers I have owned that I liked are my Dior Homme Hi-top Trainers.

    Only the denim right now at this place called Black Blue though they're getting both their men's and women's clothing this fall.

    Not sure. I had a falling out with the chick I was having a fling with there so I haven't had a reason to go back lately.

    Colette.fr has a few pair here: http://www.colette.fr/#/a/3/eshop/17...y/brand/90553/

    Also studiohomme.com has some here (note the website is in French though): http://www.studiohomme.com/createurs/pierre-hardy

    I really hope all these people suddenly buying high-luxe sneakers like lanvin/pierre hardy have the wardrobe to make them look good. Sq4you is one of the few people who wears almost exclusively that kind of muted color, luxe, sorta dressy wardrobe. I see a lot of wasted lanvins in the future as i don't think they elevate everything they touch and aren't as non-descript as say CPs. Sufu had a little lavinz phase like 2years ago and the results varied wildly

    I foresee a Lanvin overflow in the B&S forum within the next 12 months.

    I am not sure if I really even want lanvins...but the past 2-3 months these PH's have been calling my name hard [​IMG]

    I don't think Chrono's point was about having fun or not, but rather, if people hopping on the luxury sneaker bandwagon have the wardrobe to meld them with. Otherwise, the sneakers will look stupid, regardless of your personal opinion on the aesthetic merits of the shoes themselves.

    Agreed. While I love Lanvin sneakers, and am definitely glad the forum is moving in the direction of high end sneakers in general, I could never wear them irl. I just don't have the wardrobe for them, unlike someone like Sq4you who pulls them off pretty nicely imo.... now MMM and CP on the other hand...

    Thanks for the links onion thats a big help. They even have the ones I wanted.

    Glad I could help. Which ones were you looking at?
