    In the bbs context there's drop crotch so when it lines up with the long tee It elongates the torso and gives you an alternative proportion.

    The p13 and other drop crotch achieves this silhouette
    This is true, otherwise the long tees basically look like a t-shirt dress..

Agin: They are perfect -- but I can't get past the butt!!! Between mainline and 11, I own four Boris pieces, so I'm a fan. But what's the appeal of the saggy butt? Would P13 owners here rather have a more traditional drop? And why do so many other avante garde designers (for lack of a better term) go with the drop crotch? I'm thinking 10SEI0OTTO and Masnada in particular. I totally support anyone who likes the drop crotch... but if someone could "explain" it, that would be much appreciated.
    For Boris it's basically a combination of skating culture and hip-hop culture that he grew up with. Boris loves referencing his formative years. As do I as a wearer. Like Geoffrey says, the others are just copycats.

    But he also has versions that are not excessively dropped, and that's what I wear.

    The reason I'd opt for African American, as I did, if I were writing an essay, would be that France and Nigeria have black parents, too, but I'm talking about black folks inside the USA, so I guess I should say "black American parents", "American black parents", yes?

    As I pointed out, I was quoting google search results. Yes, these situations more or less happen everywhere on earth, so let's just not overlook the then social-political context, I always have great respect for black culture.
    It's cool - Americans expect everyone else in the world to conform to their culture wars. Call it neoneocolonialism.

    Hello,
    I'm experiencing a very wierd issue with my Bambas 4.
    They are 4 months old (december), worn maybe 10 to 15 times max but noticed the heel counter is creasing on the left shoe.
    I started to check the shoe construction and it appears there is no heel counter !
    It is simply a leather layer plus a layer lining with no reinforcement...
    I ve stopped wearing them since february and brought them to a cobbler but he just added an other layer of leather when I was asking to add a hard heel counter.
    I've carefully removed everything he made and I'm now looking for a solution.
    Should I contact BBS sales or simply bring them to an other cobbler ?

    Also which is happening on the left foot will occur on the right as this is the same exact construction but a bit harder.

    If you can’t fix it with a cobbler you can contact BBS studio and then ship them your bambas for repair.BBS takes their garments and shoes for repair, but they can charge repair fees, which they decide only after inspection of an item. They can’t tell you whether they charge or not in advance. Mind that all the shipping expenses are also on you side. Last week I shipped to BBS studio 3 pairs of bambas and some other items for repair. All my bambas are creaking while walking and BBS agreed to fix it.

    That's just how they are, there's no solution. (I have the same bambas and same thing is happening).
    I doubt sending them to BBS will be of any help. Don't waste your time and money on that.

    just keep them as they are and wear them as they are. It's not really a problem, at least not for me.

    Even with years of wear it didn’t break the heel ?
    I m actually worried about what could occur with years... I ll try another cobbler, sending to bbs workshop would be a non sense expense for a counter heel.

    i mean ur complaining about bambas not being built well, have u read this bbs section at all? half the posts here are about how much garbage bambas are, ur not playing tennis or bball or jogging in this, as far as walking into a bar from ur car and back these should work fine w/ out a heel counter. Other life things maybe not so much, i never thought that geobaskets could look so modern but when u compare prices and build quality they sure do look like a bargain.

    Ok got it, I guess I worry too much... I have same problem on other shoes and the leather broke after 3 to 4 years so when I saw this I was very disappointed this happened with those shoes, but well.

    I’m wearing my Geobaskets for the 6th year now (with 1 repair) and I don’t think anything will stop me from continuing.
