Lust for Lanvin


Calf Trainer Shoes (Trainer Veau Semelle Cuir)

Every now and then, everyone needs that extra push to get through the day.

Some people get it in the form of hugs. Some take comfort indulging delicious food or chocolates. Others simply need a company of their loved ones.

Me? If you have known me well, it wouldn't take long to figure it out.

Yup, shoes. You (or I, actually) can never have too many shoes.

Luckily I had another good reason (or excuse?) to get some new pairs. I needed new shoes for work since the one I wear now are no longer in its top form.

I never really liked this Lanvin pair the first time I laid my eyes on them since it looked rather casual and inappropriate for formal wear. But, after some persuasion from Ayi, I gave it a try.

Oh my. These shoes really enveloped my feet the moment I slipped it on. It wasn't too tight or too loose, neither was it uncomfortable nor painful when worn. It was the greatest feeling one could have when trying on a shoe - a perfect fit. And it looked great on my feet too.

Lanvin is notorious for its simplistic design (and ultra-expensive price tag). I've been an avid fan of this house from afar for quite some years, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to (finally) own its footwear.

I hope these purchases would last longer than a day or two. This better be some extra strong push for work - and I have a strong feeling that it would be. You can never go wrong with a great pair of footwear.

I'll let you wonder about the price tag this time. Many thanks to Mr Ayi for this.

Lanvin is available in Starhill Gallery until May 2011 before moving to Suria KLCC in the same month.
