    Really strange to walk on it :-)
    What are you doing with it?Should I leave them or cut them?
    I guess you all leave them right?
    Honestly they felt annoying to walk in, so I cut some of the bigger drips off with a razor. They got comfortable much faster, the sole will wear flat any way so not a big deal.

    I always thought, or read it here, that they don't do that :-/
    But thanks for your advice
    They did for sure, but it was not common practice and I don’t know whether they will continue this practice or not. As a private person I don’t have direct access of course, only C.C.P. retailers have. A friend of mine who knows Sergio well asked him about this favor and Sergio hardly said yes and not from the first time, so it was complicated. Besides you never know how long the process will take (6-12 months or more). And the last but not the least you should mind the risk of unsatisfied result (in general) because re-dripping means re-dying sneakers afterwords with all that it implies. But if you still want to re-drip you should ask the retailer from whom you bought your sneakers about this possibility, and MAY BE they will request C.C.P.

    May I digress and say that Minami FUCKING ROCKS CCP? I don't think I've ever seen anyone, male or female, look so good in it.

    Hey guys, brand new to the forum, but long-time lurker
    i just received this bucket list item (CCP 9 finger gloves)
    they fit perfectly (apart from a slightly long little finger cuff)




    they're ridiculously hard to pull on though –*there doesn't seem to be an opening/loosening mechanism, so i basically had to squeeze my hand in*– is it just meant to stretch out?

    Thank you for your helpful response.

    I'm looking to get the high top one but i am currently unavailable to visit the nearest store that has them to try them on. I wish there is a black drips version tho, not that the white is bad or anything.

    They are really nice, fairly comfortable too in my opinion. In comparison to the old ones they are very different they feel way more "squishy" while walking and also a bit bulkier,I feel that that feeling will surely disappear though after they're worn in as always with drips. I also love the fact that the shoes remain an interesting silhouette after the drips have disapeared

    Has anybody here had opportunity to handle In-Between drips sneakers? if so how do they stack up to the OG ones?

    thank you in advance

    Change of shades is a natural process and shouldn't be regarded as a defect, there's no way you can keep the colorway unchanged overtime, especially for white colors like 01, 03 and 33. Instead, the changes can be regarded as unique characteristics that only particular leather items can obtain.
