    That was one of the highlights of my Paris trip! Looking at all the European release retro sneaks. They were everywhere!

    im surprised that nike didnt make any of the pics :huh:

    most of the pics were converse...nike's vandal, dunk, & jordans are still desired. i know colette will be carrying the stussy dunk again. which makes me salivate.....plus im thinking about getting some of the extra high converse myself. i saw a red pair at urban outfitters :innocent:

    leyla, they just caught up to you with the boxing boots :p you were wearing those a while ago! they still arent to popular in the states...as is girls in retro also :shock:

    i know, once again i set a trend :p :lol:
    no, but seriously as much as i love mine, its become the typical parisina look of any teen or twen!!
    the first pic epitomises the current PARIS look. literally everyone who is more or less cool in their minds wears those now :wacko:
    thats not very original IMO....

    Thanks for the pics! I too want some boxing boots/wrestling sneaks. Might go buy a little boy's pair of wrestling boots (available in any sports shop come fall and start of wrestling season and usually no more than 50 bucks a pair...also can be found in thrift stores once the season's over).

    LOVE retro kicks but especially the ultra-high sneaks or boxing boots laced up over pants. This was my fav:

    Yes, yes, yes! I bought my Tyguns for $55 at www.ringside.com. Some "vintage sneaker" sites sell the same ones for $150. Truly a great deal and I love them so much!

    The white shoes in the first picture look like a pair of Yohjis I have. I really wish they'd put captions on these things.

    Yes! Thank you, leyla!

    By the way, what does everyone think of the Y-3 line? I haven't seen the fall collection yet but I was really dying for some of the spring sneaks until I found out they were sold out.

    i really like the Y3 line, but its totally overpriced. they got loads in manchester (selfridges and trafford centre) when i was there. the hwole line is overpriced... the shoes i liked were around 250 pounds. thats a joke for sneakers even if they are designer ones :rolleyes:

    Y-3 is about $225-250 USD here.

    I love those white Tyguns! I was just looking at them on the website before you posted. They also have blue ones which. . . maybe aren't so cute.

    I like Y-3, but I kind of prefer funky/Retro type shoes like Adidas and Nike, plus i dount have the money.

    Leyla yes they do have the vandals, are they a reliable site?

    oh yeah and Nikes run true to size right?
