Any sneaker freaks aboard? Post up your collections! I've got shoe mental, buying lots of pairs at the moment, diverting funds from less important pursuits like bills and food and fuel. After all, if you're rocking nice kicks, you don't mind walking!

Btw if you want your workmates to think you're mental, in your office take off your shoes and photograph them. :oops:

No offense, but those pull ons look like slippers FOB ... lol

The only pullons i got are some Everlast things, and i suppose the other 2 sneakers i wear are a set of crosstraining airmax things, and those Nike Boings . Unfortunately i gotta wear black corporate style shoes the rest of the week :)

They're about 4-5 years old, but have served me well. I bought them cos I needed good boots for the snow. They aren't nearly as good as the Land Rover badges imply (look at that tread and its not hard to see why!)....... They're really dirty now :D Like they should be.

Air yeezy did not deliver at all IMO. Hyped up for years and all nike did was mish mash some different shoes together, add ridiculous shin height and ugly laces strap and say Kanye West was involved with it.

Not cool.

I like Supras, I've got Muska sky tops in silver foil, those denim ones look clean and simple, which is what I'm a fan of.

As of late though Supra seem to be trying abit to hard, some of the non-skate lines coming out have potential but they seem to be pushing the materiality and design of their shoes to the point that its a turn off.

Trolls Royce
03-06-09, 02:34 AM

Can't beat 'em. You haven't happened to stumble upon any of those In4mation/Vans Half Cabs that they released, have you? Hawaii only from memory.

Those 'winged' Adidas weren't a regular off-the-Footlocker-shelf kind of shoe. They were part of a range of stuff designed by Jeremy Scott. Doesn't make them good, though - agreed.

nothin beats a pair of white on white air force ones, preferably mid

i've been thru 4-5 pairs now, wear em thru and once they are done, get a fresh pair

classic!

VuDOo
24-08-09, 09:30 PM
i remember when i used to be more into sneakers, buy a pair or two each month

it's funny i used to have the mentality of buying 2 pairs of any kicks i liked, so i could wear one and keep one

now i have a heap of doubles that i never wore! lol can't bring myself to take em out the box part from a perve and to get a wiff of that 'fresh kickz' smell lol

oh yeh and i dunno if it's just me, but when u talk 'sneakers' i wouldn't really put vans, or any of those slip on type shoes that are made out of like 2 pieces of fabric with a pattern on it... when i talk sneakers, im talking jordans, nike air force ones, dunks, reebok pumps... you know SNEAKERS. how u gonna call a lil fabric pair of vans SNEAKERS? they shoes to me, lil dressy/casual shoes, but sneakers they ain't, just like u wouldn't call them runners, i wouldn't call em sneakers... but that's just my personal opinion...

on another shoe related bitch... i really ain't feelin skinny dudes that wear skinny ass jeans and match it with mid/high cut white on white air force ones. to me that's such a bad mix, i don't have a problem if ur thing is skinny jeans, but rockin air force ones with em jst makes em look chunky man, air force ones is/was a basketball shoe and is pretty much synonomous with hip hop culture, i.e. loose clothing... c'mon man! jst some things u shouldn't mix sometimes u kno? and to me that's one of them...

once again this is my personal opinion...no offence intended.

rant end.

HuH
25-08-09, 01:32 AM
That post/rant kinda sucks, man. Not sure you really get the culture of the sneaker thing. Sneaker is just a word, you can say shoe instead if you want. I think Vans are dope, and they've been making 'two piece fabric shoes' for long enough to be iconic. There's a lot more to it than white on white AF1s, which you seem to love so much.

Bought a pair of Blazers today that I thought were cool. I was picking up a pair of Olympias for Monday night comp, and these were going cheap.

VuDOo
25-08-09, 07:39 AM
fair enuff that two piece fabric shoes have been around long enuff to be 'iconic' i guess

but sneaker isn't just a 'word', otherwise if it was just a word, u might as well call vans runners, and dress shoes sneakers, and hiking boots runners...

if u look up sneaker on wiki u get...

A sneaker is a term used in American English for a casual athletic shoe.

and that is where i am coming from, i share that sentiment

vans are in no way an athletic shoe

but it's all good that's my opinion i got nothing against vans or slip ons n wat not, most ppl like em and they are comfy although i don't rock em and they look fine on pretty much everyone, i just wouldn't call em sneakers myself...

peace!

HuH
25-08-09, 09:07 AM
In no way athletic? Try telling skateboarders that. You know that the Chuck Taylor was originally a basketball shoe, right? You couldn't get air in your sole a hundred years ago, but people still played sport. I realise the definition of 'sneaker' isn't really broad enough to cover everything, but to the culture it's just a title for dope footwear in general. Ever read Sneaker Freaker? If you're into shoes and that kind of expression, it's not unreasonable to appreciate something even if you wouldn't wear it.

Sicarius123
25-08-09, 09:28 AM
I've got a pair of Mr Shoe air force one's, they're in no way an athletic shoe. Any shoe with a flat casual bottom is not an athletic shoe, so that blows your whole argument out of the water.

HuH, where did you pick up those Nike's? They're sweet!

ur absolutely right, chucks were originally a basketball shoe, that's why u can call them a sneaker, and that's the point... their original intention was to be athletic, i doubt u could argue the same for vans...

im pretty sure 'hardcore' skaters go down the lines of nike sb dunks more so because they have leather, if u did kickflips in vans the material would just rip lol

saying flat casual bottom shoes is not an athletic shoe doesn't really work either, air force one mids have flat bottoms, they are athletic and still used, flat footed bball players actually prefer flat bottom shoes othewise it would dig into their lack of arch...

in saying all that, i realise now if a type of shoe has enuff of a following, popularity, air of exclusivity, then fair call to put it amongst sneaker culture, sorry for any negativity guys, i guess i've been a bit ol skool in my train of though... my bad.

Vans were made for sidewalk surfers aka skateboarders.

If skateboarding isn't athletic then I don't know what is...

Vans > Nike SB anyday. Nike bought out skateboarding. They bought P-Rod from eS and Koston from Lakai. They MUST be getting PAID.

Shit, Alex Olson left his fam at Lakai for Vans. Respect!

Yeah you do get blowouts skating in Authentics/Ol Skools/Eras but that's skateboarding. You're supposed to get new shoes every week.

I also have a bone to pick with people who wear Supreme and don't even skate.

I'll take a pic of my Vans collection soon... maybe 40 by now? But hey, it's sneakers, who's counting :lol:

I also have a bone to pick with people who wear Supreme and don't even skate.

Haha that's me. Is the fact that I like their designs and quality not good enough reason to be allowed to wear Supreme? I don't play ball any more either, should I give away my Jordans?

Seriously though, what does it matter? People are touchy about Supreme, like it's some skater merit bage or some shit.

26-08-09, 02:31 PM
I'll try explain it like this:

I respect Michael Jordan. Amazing basketballer, amazing athlete. I respect the earlier Jordan's designed by Tinker Hatfield.

But I never played basketball as a kid. So I can't wear basketball shoes for that reason. It's the respect and homage of a culture that I acknowledge is dope, but I can't and will not front.

I'm just that type of person.

Skateboarding and hip-hop are the only two things in my life that has affected me in a way that is hard to describe in words. They shaped my world, introduced me to people that are friends for life. They affected my music/art/movie tastes.They are the most important things that I have ever come across in my short life to date, bar family and friends.

I like cars, but I could do without them. I'll never give up skateboarding or hip-hop. I can't. It's almost OCD like. As you can tell Mike, from our PMs and what not. I'm a very protective person.

It seems like people just jump on bandwagons, then get off them when the hype is gone.

For example, skateboarding blew up because of the SB hype. People tried to skate, but it was too hard. So they bought Vans and fixed gear bikes instead.

You may not agree, perspective is all relative.

Shoes are shoes?

pr1nce
26-08-09, 02:56 PM
Essentially, yes.

But every shoe tells a story. There's a subculture behind each shoe.

To me it's staying true to the cultures that raised me right.

I'm fine with people buying whatever they want. It's consumerism.

But behind the consumerism, is a past time that means something to me.

Shoes are shoes.

Marketing tends to exploit any subculture such as skating, hip hop, basketball etc. whether it is a signature shoe from a famous player, skater, artist, sponsorship of events, venues etc. or just sponging off or shaping the general trends, style and identity many follow.

@ Pr1nce, if you want to be so die hard about a particular brand and it's use/background etc, think about how you heard about it, and the motives of the brand etc. rather than criticising those who supposedly 'buy into' a brand or jump on a bandwagon.

Regardless of your purchasing motive, unless you are a pro skater, player etc. who have been given the shoes to wear for free to promote the brand and it's values or you are designing them, you need to understand that we are all jumping on a bandwagon in some form or another.

You can't buy a shoe you've never heard of after all...

I am not going to say I am a hardcore sneaker freak with a vast collection of shoes with an equally large understanding of the brands, products and history behind all of the iconic, retro etc. shoes but my living is marketing and it doesn't take a genius to know that it plays a large role in our purchasing decisions.

Who do you think provides the shoes to the magazines and the many online blogs around? You'd be surprised at how many 'articles' or news features are little more than the standard press release. This is a pesimistic view and playing devil's advocate to some extent, but I hope you understand the intention.

I can't say I am particularly brand loyal but the brand and history/authenticity do make a difference for me.

I buy shoes that look good and suit my tastes.

Doesn't mean that there isn't a single truth whether we believe it or not. This is totally unrelated to the sneaker discussion.

Not even as a fan? It just sounds like you're making things unnecessarily harder for yourself to enjoy what you want. Tell me you didn't watch NBA on channel 10 Saturday mornings in the 90s and that you don't have White Men Can't Jump in your DVD collection. That qualifies you, imo :D


As you can tell Mike, from our PMs and what not. I'm a very protective person.

Well at least you can't be accused of doing things by halves.

pr1nce
27-08-09, 03:39 AM
I never watched NBA on channel 10. I don't own White Men Can't Jump on DVD or even have it on my hard drive. :lol:

Yeah I like making things hard for things for me to enjoy. And I like that. I know what I like and I stick to it. Sifting thru bullshit to find gems. Yeah boy!

@ Taz, I know marketing plays a big part. Why would a company release something that isn't targeted to a specific group and won't sell?

I understand that people buy what they like to suit their tastes.

That's just not me. I don't just buy shoes because they fit.

How doesn't this apply?

In my perspective, I think Spizikes are rubbish.

In your perspective you might think they are the dopest thing ever.

Perspective is relative.

However, putting all the dopest parts of Jordans don't make a good sneaker :lol:

Nice collection, mate. Are they the Syndicate Half Cabs in the front row? Caballero is coming to town in September.

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb287/Taz_79/_MG_0420.jpg

And bought these in the UK where I live a little while ago, Japanese Zodiac Snake editions (the side stripes are a shiny while material vs. the normal leather)

Has anyone checked out Puma Mongolian BBQ?

You can design your own shoe using 3 models (that change seasonally) and customise 8 different area's on the shoe.

The site is here www.puma.com/mbbq

Nike offers a similar service which has been around for a while.

Here's a couple of 'safe' options i've done, nothing crazy (you can have flouro yellow, pink, leopard print purple etc...).

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb287/Taz_79/pumagreen.jpg
http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb287/Taz_79/pumablack.jpg

I'm pretty sure you can change the laces and the tongue etc since i've seen different laces in the Stockholm store in Sweden which has a Mongolian BBQ stand in the store itself.

Post up some of your designs even if you don't buy them.

With Nike it's easy -- most will fit true-to-size, hence why I buy from EastBay. At worst if you don't want to pay some absurd amount for a locally available shoe, go try it on and then order that size. Just factor in shipping costs.

With EastBay, I usually wait till they have $15, $25 off an order over x amount. Shipping is fast via UPS, ordered my Trainer 1's last Tuesday morning, arrived Friday morning.

18-10-10, 06:44 PM

Really top stuff. Eastbay especially with its super-fast shipping. Ordered Sunday night, got here Friday (and that was after shipment tracking told me the cargo plane was delayed).
Also, they just don't do shoes - they do accessories, sports equipment, clothes and fan gear too. I bought a Nike zip-up fleece hoody they had on special... $30! Same thing in Aus would've cost $70 at least I reckon.

I have not bought a pair of shoes in Australia since 2002 I think. Since then, its either mainly online from Eastbay or bought from overseas.

For me, I not only shop overseas/online for cheaper prices but because I want shoes not available in Australia. Exclusivity is a pretty big thing for me. I would say over half my shoes were never sold in Australia, so I would have one of the few pairs in the country (if not the only ones).

evil
