A woman was wearing them. In the year Aliens takes place they may not have men's or women's shoes.
Apparently Sigorny wears a size 10, so they did release them in her size.

The case was limited to select retailers I believe.

36 pairs were released in US, 426 total globally(lv426), same level of stupidity as 70 vinyls since majority will be auctioned off

Shoe drops are ruled by the bot game. Sounds familiar...

Great prints in there. Jaws is fantastic but does it go to far on LD's theme?
Feels nothing like the LD, and ISO for a set
No kiddin lol. A big part of Jaws is the beach, so why would it be copying Durieux to have a beach incorporated in a Jaws print? This one is far more clever than Durieux's too.

What on Earth is this guy seeing that I'm not seeing? I see an umbrella and the word Jaws as being the same- other than that I can't imagine more different looking Jaws posters.

I scored a pair of the hi tops off reebok.co.uk a while after they went on sale. Think they must have been much harder to score in the US.

the reality for me was that I really wanted a $225 retail item that resells for $800. that would have been nice

Durieux wasn't trying to be clever. The Durieux is just a classy, good, original concept for a Jaws poster. Yeah, there is a fin in the umbrella and that's pretty clever, but without really even making your feel like he was trying.

This one is REALLY pushing the cleverness. What are those tent things? Are those even things that are on beaches in the movie or are they just there to force the appearance of teeth?

Call this one clever if you want, I don't see the movie in this new one. I see an eyeball. And people coming over to my place, seeing it on the wall, and being like "is that supposed to be a shark?"
