|Kris Van Assche||Mummy streez/bondage||Fits half size larger. Same midsole as cp.||
Most comfortable hi tops I have owned, lacing allows for a tight grip. Could be a pain to re-lace them if you want both laces to be equal>>OCD. midsole is grey but awesome. blends perfectly with the rest of the shoe. cut-out leather is stiff. suede is soft.
Made in Croatia like most kva footwear. fall/winter 2010.
I catch people looking down as they walk by. Bow down in my presence bitch!

|Lanvin||Captoe Lowtop - Modern Sole||Fits 1.5 US sizes bigger than the designer marked size. For example, a Lanvin 10 fits a size US11.5. The low tops have a wide sole and can accomodate wider feet. The toe box is fairly roomy, noticeably roomier than the old sole version.||Very luxurious shoes. The sole used on modern Lanvin shoes is exclusive to Lanvin. Most are made in Italy, however some low-top models (2010 and newer permanent collection like the black suede with black captoe model) are now produced in Portugal.||28.5||29.5||3||High|
|Lanvin||High Top - Modern Sole||Fits 1.5 US sizes bigger than the designer marked size. For example, a Lanvin 10 fits a size US11.5. The high tops have a wide sole and can accomodate wider feet. The toe box is fairly roomy, noticeably roomier than the old sole version.||Very luxurious shoes. The sole used on modern Lanvin shoes is exclusive to Lanvin. The high tops are all made in Italy and the soles are hand-stitched to the upper part. The modern soles are very tough and are much more resistant to wear than the original sole (which is still in use by other designers like Common Projects and Raf Simons). The materials used are generally more varied and interesting than other shoes, sometimes to the point of being over the top. The high tops tend to be more aggressively styled than the lows.||29.5||30.6||4||High|
|Lanvin||Boat Sneakers - Modern Sole||Fits a size big.||Best boat sneakers I've worn. Made with the modern sole, nylon uppers and leather laces. The perfect spring/summer sneakers to be worn with chinos and button-up shirts with your chest exposed to the beach. Socks optional.||29.5||5||High|

|Lanvin||Low Cap Toe (old sole)||Fits 1.5 sizes bigger than tagged in US. Ie, a Lanvin size 10 will fit like a size 11.5 US. Taking that into account, the old sole models have a smallish toebox.||Construction is on par with Common Projects, and is on the same sole, but materials tend to be much more interesting and higher quality.||3||High|
|Lanvin||Cap Toe High (old sole)||Fits 1.5 sizes bigger than tagged in US. Ie, a Lanvin size 10 will fit like a size 11.5 US. Taking that into account, the old sole models have a smallish toebox.||Construction is on par with common projects but materials are more interesting and of higher quality. The high tops come in a wide variety of colourways and make use of various materials and can be very over-the-top. Consequently, some are more tasteful than others. Adjust swag accordingly.||5||High|
|Louis Vuitton||Punchy||Fits true to size, printed size is 8, in which I would assume is a UK8. LV sneakers doesn't come with a traditional box with the printed info or serial number on the box, those production boxes are thrown and they provide a new sliding box for each shoes they sell.||A vintage looking sneaker boots, features an outsized LV logo stitched on the side and a leather cap-toe. Comes in varying upper; suede, canvas (damier monogram - no Outsize LV logo) and smooth leather. Very low-profile and sleek, can be dressed up or down.||29.5||4||High|
|Maison Martin Margiela||Classic High Top||Fits true-to-size; if you are a US 9 or 9.5, it is recommended that you get size It42. The leather will stretch some with wear. The classic high top is known for being more spacious than the classic low top.||Extremely comfortable and unique trainer. The calf-split leather is very soft. Unfortunately, the shoes are not known for their longevity. Can be worn in various ways however you need a lot of swag to pull them off well. The extra wide laces and extra tall tongue draw a lot of gazes. This shoe is best worn with very casual clothes.||28.5||30||31||3||Medium|
|Maison Martin Margiela||German Army Trainer, Lowtop||Fits true to size. If you are an 8 in Chucks, take the IT 41. If you are a US 9, take an IT 42. The classic GAT low top fits much tighter than a classic high top in the exact same size.||A reproduction of the Austrian "German Army Trainer" shoe. Extremely comfortable. The calf-split leather is very soft. Unfortunately, the shoes are not known for their longevity. The laces are much thinner than on the classic high top. This shoe is best worn with very casual clothes. Some of the low tops have a special strap that connects to the tongue and wraps under the inside sole so that the shoe can be worn without laces.||28.5||29||29.5||30||31.25||32.5||3||Medium|
|Maison Martin Margiela||Mid-Top Trainers||Fits true to size.||A mid-top version of the classic high-tops with wide laces and gum soles. Very casual and very athletic looking. I jog in these, not Lanvins.||29||3||High|
|Raf Simons||Ankle-Strap High Top||I wear 8 in Chucks and this particular shoe is pretty snug although I usually wear 40 in Rafs. I may have been happier with a 41.||This is not the Astro model with the pocket but rather the ankle-strap version.||28||∞||High|
|Raf Simons||Vandal - Patent||Very narrow shoe with extremely low profile toe box. Fits one size larger; a US 9 will fit into an IT 41. However, due to the narrowness and low profile, it may be necessary to size true to your actual size; i.e. a US 9 would take an IT 42.||Raf Simons' interpretation of the Nike Vandal. This shoe has two downsides: the soft sole which wears very quickly and the thin, woven laces which do not look very luxurious in comparison to the rest of the shoe. The black patent Vandals are best paired with black APC jeans.||29.5||4||Medium|
|Raf Simons||Vandal - Nylon||Fits half a size big, I wear a 42 but a 41.5 would be perfect if they made the shoes in half size increments. Fits a bit narrow as well.||29.1 length. 10 width||29.5||4||High|
|Raf Simons||Astronaut Hightop||
Fits half a size big, I wear a 42 but a 41.5 would be perfect if they made the shoes in half size increments. Fits a bit narrow as well.
Fits true to size, maybe slightly big in terms of length. Size down if you are in between sizes for a snug fit.
|Definitely not for the faint of heart, has to be rocked right with confidence. The drouble tongue, ankle strap and back pocket makes it impossible to cover the shoes with your jeans/pants. Wear with caution. They have to be tucked or at least stacked. Tucking them under the hem of your pants is an unacceptable sneaker foul.||30||30.5||5||High|
|Rick Owens||Hightop "Dunks"||About half size big due to the roomy toe box||Rick Leather on your feet, son||29.5||5||High|
|Rick Owens||High-Top Sneakers||Fits true to size and wide. Needs some breaking in.||This Rick Owens high-top has a panel detail design with the usual side-zips and laces combo and its signature thick rubber sole. It is also heavy and bulky. Looks and feels tough as well. Distinct differences between this seasons and the older version are the raised toes and it got rid of the staples in the back of the mid-sole.||29||5||High|
|Silent by Damir Doma||Sevier||Fits true to size and wide.||High top sneakers made of suede, comes in black and olive grey. It comes with extra long wrap around waxed laces and contrasting tan leather lining.||29.5||3||Medium|
|Yves Saint Lauren||Rollins||Fits a size big.||The best looking plimsol, high-top sneakers out there. Sole is thinner and looks more fragile, leather is thin and flimsy but it has stood the wears I put it through. Very low profile and sleek.||29.5||4||Low|
|Yves Saint Lauren||Y Hightop||Fit true to size.||Verstaile mid/hightop hybrid. Crepe sole. Not as comfortable as MMM trainers.||28.5||3||Medium|
