I'm sorry, those CCP boots do not work for me. It's equivalent to a philosophy calling itself brand new by appending a few oriental concepts onto already existing beliefs.

Some bonafide CCP stilts, however, could be interesting...

Finally, I wear some CCP size 12 boots with a thick sport orthotic and they're actually more comfortable than Rick trainers because the tight thick leather actually provides a lot of ankle support! Carol would be disappointed.

I'm a terrible person.
I haven't forgotten though...thank you for liberating my guilty conscience.

In the case of the shoes, I understand the concept all too well (it's so literal here that it pretty much hits you over the head...).
I just think the form fails, and not intentionally here. I'm open to being convinced otherwise though. CCP thread has been very quiet for awhile now.

The hybrid forms have always been very litteral (the shirt with the bomber elastic cuff at the waist, the knit with the shirt collar, etc.) - like a school kid joke.

Gotta send you some pics, where the shoes (and the wearer) look like the're levitating.
This shape works as an mirror image of another : the platform boots with the bridged sole, but no pic of them has been posted on the interwebz, afaik.

^Would be awesome to see them in action.

I actually have a pair of very non-conceptual (Chloe) shoes with a beautifully shaped wooden wedge that produces (no doubt to a lesser degree) that effect of levitation when worn. They are very precarious, like walking on rocking horses, and they receive more compliments than any other shoe I own.

Hmm, you need to get a real dress shoe, go to John Lobb or whatever and you'll see what comfortable means in that category, as for trainers well buy some Roshe runs, now that's comfortable. CCP is, at best, not uncomfortable.

Fully agree.
Forgot to say that the derbies are way heavier than any other shoe of the same kind, and that they have a quite high heel that men are not really used to.

they are comfortable as in good to wear and walk in. I'm of course speaking for my own collection.

I think you know what I meant with my reply though, I wasn't saying they are the most comfortable shoes ever made, but not generally uncomfortable either. I wouldn't generalize all ccp footwear as material makes a bit difference whether or not the shoes are for example constricting or not.

And even though the ccp's are called "trainers" or "sneakers", I wouldn't really compare them to proper running shoes.

i thought it was suggested they were designed to be uncomfortable. and yes, drips and the like seem to have more in common with some of the earlier sneakers ever made, or something rubberized in that wwii-ish way than anything being called a sneaker now.

in any case i'm partial to the lunarlon-soled nikes myself.

This is not how the casting process works and is actually misleading for a consumer as it suggests the links are hollowed brass with wax inside. When you cast something you do not "cover" it in a metal, the mould is made around the wax and then the wax is melted away. It is replaced with metal wherever the wax was inside the mould.

^You can e-mail LN-CC. I am sure they would be glad to correct the description.
(And maybe give you a small voucher code as a reward)

Default balaclava press-ons




I call winner for best pedicure look, ever. Especially extra long & curled over like that.

Bonus points if paired with, say, a toe-less rendition of the CCP man-lady clogs.

I've seen these before and I just don't get why the hell anyone would sell such random, generally meaningless photos on ebay? And who would ever buy them. They are from a newspaper's archive so I assume they have been submitted for an obituary or something, so I imagine they are not related to notable news event or anything like that.

I'm trying to find a proper report reason, but "stupid shit" isn't in the drop down menu
