    ^Oh, I meant the guy posting some Dior shoes on the earlier page, which have nothing to do with the topic of this thread.

    No worries man...buckle up for this one:

    So i’ve been thinking of buying these destroyed Devoa boots
    But after like 6 months of thought I’m still ambivalent...

    According to elixir timeless gallery this was done intentionally by the designer so that the brush stroke finish would get damaged over time.
    Thoughts?
    Kop or Not?

    Do you like it? Do you like the idea of it peeling throughout your use as intended by the designer?

    I could vaguely like it knowing it’s approved by sf artisanal boot connoisseurs

    If you're so ambivalent about those boots you want the internet to make your decision for you, save your money and put it toward something you know you'll love.

    Has anyone pulled the trigger on Pollacki boots? I'm hoping to get some but figuring out sizing is a pain and Adam seems a bit unsure, too. I'd happily buy right now, but I'd feel bad with us guessing and returning.

    I was about to pull the trigger too last year and didn't in the end for the same reason you mentioned. The boots look rather well though!

    Same question about but about Saddam Teissy / D. Hygen—any experience, especially with sizing? Fascinate's doing preorders.

    I think this is the first time they're doing footwear. I think the label is starting to come on their own in terms of design. At first, I saw the label as heavily influenced by CCP. I find the backpack with detachable leather sleeves really interesting. Probably if I used backpacks, I'd get one.
