    Then for several years I felt rather buoyant and lost to it all; and I can't pinpoint why. Was it the move from desktop to handheld media consumption? Was that the final straw?

    I used to engage with a niche but thriving community where we communicated by documenting the way we adorned our bodies daily. It didn't feel narcissistic, it felt like a conversation. Now I can't even bring myself to post my own face on my own instagram feed without feeling dirty.

    My style has suffered. My work has suffered. I feel like these muscles have atrophied; my own sense of self has become watered down in the muddy mediocrity of the 'instagram aesthetic' - where once I could curate my own online experience, I am now choking on advertising thinly veiled as 'recommended content' by the algorithm that never seems to successfully integrate with what I'd genuinely be interested in, instead suffocating what's left of my creative spirit in it's homogeneity.

    The things that used to galvanize me now make me weary.
    No wonder I'm tired all the time.
    some do it fast, some do it better in smaller amounts.

    Leclaireur does not ship out of the EU. Does anyone knows any proxy or any way I can purchase from them with tax off? Might even consider proxy and sacrificing tax.

    Where are you trying to ship to?
    I live in Europe and will be coming to the US (California) in late July. I won't be able to get the tax back (EU citizen), but I'd be willing to proxy for you if you're looking for stuff to get to America.

    A lot of people who have a soul feel that way these days, just so you know :-)

    Does anybody know which Rick leather "LMV" is?
    All I could find is "calf", but this one (right) looks thicker than the regular calf (left).
    Any help is appreciated.

    I honestly think it's the same shoe, but I could be wrong. They are amazing! I want.

    I think the leather on the right ones looks a tad thicker and sturdier.

    EDIT:

    Left one’s LCW (heavy calf)
    right one’s LMV (???)

    Creepers have had some incredible leather in recent seasons. LMV is a stiff pebbled calf leather used in SS18 Dirt. Compared to the traditional LCW (which stretches out noticeably over time), LMV will be pretty heavy duty.

    Thank you!
