    i kopped from sq, they are ss10 so no longer produced. i can't find any stock photo in black but here's the same sneaks in blue distressed leather. i believe they still pop up on ebay from time to time but i haven't seen them recently

    Yeah, Kelvin and others had always said they fit the same or slightly smaller than the sneakers but evidence lately has suggested otherwise so I dunno. I went with my CP size, so I'll report back.
    I figure its better to try the smaller size first because you know if it's too small but I'm never sure if I have room to size down.


    Hmm... I remember a post in which Kelvin said he had to size up for the boots as compared to the sneakers? Of course I can't find it now ...

    haha thanks. too bad i'm gone tomorrow and it won't be two months till i start wearing them. i hope they go well with grey/charcoal/black denim. when i tried them on today i was surprised to find that they can be tucked under jeans (not that i plan to wear them that way often) with quite narrow leg openings (i.e. my levi 511 with 7' openings) with no visible break in the silhouette but maybe once i start moving around it'll be a different matter

    me has watered town margielas and vandals w/ 'raf simons' velcro patches [​IMG]


    totally unrelated random GAT thought: diligent use of shoe trees can keep the sneaks in shape for much, much longer than without shoe trees, so you don't end up with gats looking like these after a few months of wear

    +1 There is no way I could size down 1 on MMM, I'm an 11.5 and I take a 45 in Lo sneaks, 44 in Hi sneaks, 45 in Shoes / Boots / Sidezips

    it may also depend on the size of your feet. i mostly look for mmm boots in 40/41 and it's not uncommon to see buyers describe them as 'running large' (quick search yields these results:

    ) but i can imagine the need to size up diminish as foot size gets larger

    nice, definitely a step up from oc!
    I ordered these APCs and I was really disappointed with the quality. Had to return them. Made in Portugal so wouldn't be surprised if it's the same factory as OC. http://www.ssense.com/photos/men/00/...046001_1_2.jpg [​IMG]
