    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The jeans look great but 2500 bucks is bit over the top for jeans imo. I wonder what other brands produce jeans using similar "hairy" denim.

    Local cobbler I found out finally stocked white vibram for the sole and heel. :slayer:

    But $40 for sole and $25 for heel, or something like that...will just suck it up and get my Guidi fixed so I can wear more regularly now.

    Relief.

    You know I feel the same, but I kinda started wanted them nevertheless after I saw the full shots. The design on the backpockets is really interesting to me... if they arent functionally retarded. Probably not 2.5k interesting, but that's japanese retail. Might be able to special order it from a euro retailer for something slightly more reasonable.

    Maybe it can be training for some aitor throup jeans.. which are probably about as expensive as I'm ever willing to consider. Until m_moria starts dropping some jeans.

    For Hender Scheme... size 4 is ~41.5 for the AF1s. Size 4 is more like 8 or a big snug on the gats probably should have gone up to size 5.

    Basically the high tops fit a little bigger than the low tops. Maas Stacks dude confirmed this. There's only size 4/5/6 vaguely corresponding to either 8 - 10 or 8.5 - 10.5 depending on your feet/model.

    Ooh white vibrams... sadly already got my white tornados done or I'd probably bite the bullet on that one myself.

    I think it's worth contacting Hender Scheme if you want a bigger size. "Can you make this in size 11" is not the same as making a custom shoe.

    Worth trying but given that his sizing doesn't really correspond to a normal convention and how limited his production is not he may not have patterns for other sizes or an easy way to scale what he does have.

    good idea


    thats possible as well, just wondering wtf kanye did to mess it up for the rest of us.

    On the other hand james kearns maybe able to do something similar, after all you said that strap gets in the way.

    He just kept making the dude redo the shoes until he was satisfied with the fit and how they looked all through a chain of assistants e.g. a game of telephone. He was compensated well for it but it sounds like it was a frustrating experience he never wanted to repeat again.

    I get it but you have to expect that with nit pick celebs. I think a more standardized process for reg customer to be able to customize shouldn't be that difficult.

    There are nice.

    $2,500 jeans is just stupid doesn't matter who makes em unless they have heavy embroidery or something, I don't see how they price that. If your really looking for something top notch Id just contact Zam and just get something custom.
