Current Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Investment: Laceless Ramones
What you love about this piece?: It was the initial Rick Owens staple piece when I stared wearing Rick. Rick Owens himself had transition from wearing dunks to wearing the lace less Ramones and I thought he made them look really dope. Rick Owens has been a huge part of my style and it wouldn't have been as prominent if I didn't own the pieces that originally got me loving the brand.
Any styling tips you suggest with this item?: I would Typically say they go best with Pod shorts and leggings or high socks, but that is the standard MR. Rick Owens look for them. I find they also go really well with prisoner pants and and a nice long tee. Due to the fact that they are built so wide and I have a 2012 model I find they need to be matched in wider silhouettes.
Maintenance suggestions?: I personally pick up a nice tooth brush at a corner store and once in a while scrub them down. I really baby my shoes so they always are pretty clean.
Sizing suggestions?: I would say Rick Owens is true to size. I wear a 41 so all of my Rick shoes are 41s.
