If i were to choose between this Giacomorelli and the Christian Louboutin Louis Spikes, i think i will pick the former.Why? See the combination of studs and exotic leather. The use of zippers also made the sneakers a lot sexier. I just love the details!
Inspired by Christian Louboutin? Yes and no. It's true that Louboutin revived the studs on shoes trend but such trend appeared decades ago.

Just received this in the mail yesterday! Now i have 2 pairs of Balmain biker jeans, a blue and black. Enough of Balmain jeans!
For the past few weeks, I was thinking real hard if i should buy it. The "pressure" is off FINALLY but i paid a premium for it because i got it from Japan. After getting the blue one, i know i wanted a black one. I missed buying the waxed version and also this leather effect one during the actual season so i search high and low for them. Then, i found it in a store in Japan but the pricing was so much higher than the retail price in Paris! Even though the price was reduced from ￥113,000 to ￥98,000, it is still very EXPENSIVE compared to €700! This particular biker jeans is one of the highly sought-after Balmain and coincidentally my size is one of the popular one. With the on going sale, i know i must decide real soon or it will be snapped up by someone else.
Here's how the leather effect look like. I think it look more like suede than normal leather itself. Sorry for the bad photography because they were taken by my iPhone.
What do you think?
I don't know if i like or hate the straps on the shoulder. I do like unique details but the straps make the jacket look like a safety harness jacket. Maybe i will like it when i see it in person...
