Can I join in too?

Tell me more about Zespa. I am a sucker for anything South of France-y, especially embossed on cool white sneakers. Do they fit like CPs? I see they're made in Italy. Same type of sole? They look pretty nice.

Went for dinner with a buddy the other night
I hope you had some raclette and pilzners. :cheers:

My Zespa alongside with Adidas Samba for Barneys NY: for this model, sizing is the same.
They are made in France, not Italy.

Cool thanks, man! ^ That's good if they're similar to Adidas. I think I saw them on End or something and I thought they were made in Italy. Made in France makes more sense. I was just hoping they weren't on that ubiquitous CP sole since that one doesn't work for me.

Yo, I like those BNY Sambas a LOT more than I thought I would.

I didn't wear these for most of today, but I'm wearing them to break them in now:

Milohshop x Whites Black Cherry Water Buffalo Bounty Hunters, block heel
This is my third pair of Whites, my first with the block heel, and I love it. These might have jumped above my Daytons as my favorite boot silhouette. And it helps that these are 10x more comfortable on first wear than the cuban-heeled boots ever were, and yet they're just as substantial on the whole. Love love love em, enough that I might get them a buddy in black horse.

Remember that their sizing is the French one: in my case 40 = 8 US in Adidas. Nevertheless, I pointed out "for this model" as they tend to run somehow large. The following link might help:

@Callusing those look great,
particularly in the middle shot which is a natural angle from which people will see them.

Love White’s Boots myself too!

As per @Mercurio mentioned, they are French made and went with them due to Zespa was easier to obtain for me vs. CP. In Alden or other dress shoes I'm a 7.5E/8D so a 41 was fitting well for me here with thin hideaway socks.

Worked out well methinks!
