    How many pair of sneakers do you have now?

    Admittedly, too many. My plan is to beat the absolute shit out of these over the winter, so that my balenciagas stay snow-free.

    Synth your a prick

    Have you had these before? If not, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Listi always talks them up like nobody's business, and I was like, "yeah, yeah, whatever," but damn, he was right. Really great shape, great height on the shaft.

    where's the sweater from?
    If you're referring to the one I posted, it's from Norse Projects
    GDL -- our legacy on the Jacket? Nice kop.
    It's from Bleu de Paname

    Had dessert boots and mid achilles top before, never the bb highs. Was going to wait until the holiday season to kop some Lanvins, but these were too "cheap" for me to pass up. Hopefully they'll live up to the hype.

    I have Bball highs, and imo Synth has the better kind - the plain nappa leather is so much better than the patent.

    I sold my patent leather achilles in bone awhile ago. they were just a tad bit stiff for my liking. But really easy to clean up though.

    I have the same bball hi and like them a lot. I much prefer my achilles high though.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the patent sometimes. I have achilles mids in patent bone, same as the ones jd has that are pretty cool. Patent bball highs just look unappealing to me.
