Raf Simons Footwear Spring 2008

2:28AM Quick UPDATE re: Raf Simons Footwear. I no longer want (to pay for) them. I take
back everything I said unless it starts raining manna from heaven. Thanks for the reality check. Anyway, someone
online bought a different style/more affordable version
and the results are not pleasant.

Just click here. (you’ve been warned. There’s a man’s foot on that page.)

and here. (it just occurred to me this guy is a hardcore raf collector to the point where he even bought a flintstone caftan of some sort.)

That’s all!

On a side note, what the fuck was I doing obsessing about men’s footwear anyway?

============

I WANT TO CRY. THOSE RAF SIMONS MULTI-COLOR BOOTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE… DITTO WITH THE SANDALS.

“De Stijl” Hiking Boots – US$1,895 [here]

Raf Simons

“Astronaut” High Sandals – US$1,250 [here]

Raf Simons

WHO THE HELL DO I HAVE TO BLOW AROUND HERE TO GET THEM?

Should I spend my holiday money on new footwear or should I fuck fashion and go on a vacation instead? The good news is, they don’t have the boots in my size, which is 41/42, thanks very much, but the sandals, my god those sandals, are just a few keystrokes away… MUST. RESIST. TEMPTATION.

Why are they making it soooo difficult? $1,895!!!!! Ugh! We’re talking about footwear here, not handbags! (I don’t wanna hear anything about the ostrich bag either… I’m gonna have to call on the powers of “The Secret” for that.) Answer me my minions, answer me now!

PS. Mike Dumlao in NYC I know you know people at Seven New York. Get their ass on the phone… ask  for a 75% discount and tell them I’m willing to be their slave for an entire year. I have talent. I’m good at answering phones and taking messages! Desperate times, desperate measures!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Is there something freaky going on with that left knee on the first pic, or is it me?

  2. hellohello

    The white boots were only made in sizes 43 and 44.. surely a little too big for you darling?!

  3. hehe thanks for linking to the pic of me and my raf sandals
    i’ve very glad you aren’t going to buy them or i may have to burn my own

  4. doree

    the guy on those links is an insult to raf’s aesthetic. i think i threw up a little

  5. the astronaut sandals and the boots are nice. the other sandals are utterly rubbish tho.

    Bryanboy you don’t understand how glad I am that you’ve picked this up! I’ve been trying to correct him(he posts on the fashion forum at men.style.com too) but he wouldn’t listen. You(and several others) have vindicated he ;)

  7. F*ck!!! thats already a louis vuitton handbag for Christ’s sake!!!!!!!
    Tsk tsk tsk….not that worth it….lol

    the guy in Raf screams FASHION VICTIM.
    run away from those shoes while you can!

  9. U SAID IT YOURSELF… NO SHOE SIZE FOR YOU.. GO FOR A VACATION INSTEAD… DUH !!! HORRIBLE SHOES!!!

  10. manchic

    I just had an orgasm from looking at them hot footwear…

  11. I agree.. a poor victim of fashion, I feel sorry for him. :/

  12. I think the shoes are kinda hot in a “I broke my ankle skying in fucking Aspen and this is HOW YOU ROCKS A CAST, BITCH”, which totally works. But I hate them damn sandals. What is that. Updated Tevas hiking slippers? Robocop on holiday? What is that. I dont think it’ll look cute on you babe…it’ll just make your lower legs look like they’re prosthetics. I know you can rock them but dang, rock something else. Go for the holiday! Oh and you are in Malaysia’s New Icon mag. I saw it at the office today. I’ll scan them up when I can find the time and email ya.
    Cheers

  13. Oh my god, you have got to be kidding!?
    Bryanboy, in your whole online career of fashion royalty, I have NEVER seen such a tasteless desire on your behalf! I mean, I can’t even describe the scary bells going off in my head. Bryan, please don’t buy those, THINGS!
    Seriously, those muthafokas are worse than crocks! And crocks are pretty damn ugly.
    SPEND IT ON A HOLIDAY. PLEASE!

  14. babe, it boils down to whether a person can carry off those shoes with finesse. some people have watch wrists, some don’t. some people have a hat/cap head/face, some don’t. imo, that guy didn’t really have the feet shape to go with those sandals. i have a pair and it works fine on me i reckon. and i’m sure they will work magical on you too BB.
    the Stormtrooper Boots are to die for. unfortunately, we have the same feet size, so tough luck as you mentioned – they’re sold out.
    i’d say have your cake and eat it too. why not go on a holiday AND get the shoes? =)

    The guy in the Raf Sandals (with the fat nasty feet) needs a reality check.
    Does he realize how stupid he looks?
    Classic example of money can NOT buy style!

  16. FLEET83

    The guy in shades ,he is a member of men.style.com. he is 9500post.

  17. i just think you can’t buy style…style is not for sale you just have it or not; real fashion people can make look a t-shirt as a million box and then you will copy it but you will never look like them

  18. Reubenv.

    hi, can anyone re post the photos of that fashion victim youre all talking about please?
