i absolutely love everything kris van assche makes. he worked with hedi slimane at yves saint laurent and dior homme before starting for his own label a few years ago. i really really like man shoes. good thing i have big feet! but i'm having trouble finding a retailer in canada, and the only US on-line retailer has a puny selection of three styles of sneakers in stock. hmmm, this might be a good excuse to travel.
