if someone gets a thread about pants, i can get one about shoes.... shoes are my collectable for sure. i have cut down in the last little while but i usually keep about 8 to 10 in rotation. once i had 4 pairs of shoes that were identical except they were different colours.... ah..... shoes... i love you so.

I have many pairs aswell. however, they all are different and serve different purposes for me. I have two pairs of everyday skate shoes (1 that I skate in and 1 that I walk around everyday in... skating recks shoes liek you wouldn't beleive unless you skate!), 1 pair of rugby cleats, 1 pair of steel toed boots for landscaping job in the summer, 3 pairs of dress shoes to match different suits (can't have redish dress shoes with a black suit!);) , 1 pair of cleats for my bike (clipless pedeals), 2 pairs of running shoes (1 for trainning, 1 for racing), 1 pair of sandels, 1 pair of snowboard boots, 1 pair of nordic ski boots, 2 pairs of slippers (one for lounging and one for the cold cold basment floor that I'm currently living in).
so I guess thats about 15 pairs of footwear. It's a bit excessive for a guy but at least they are for different things. I'm not fashoin oreinted, just particality oriented.

why is it so hard to find a nice black suede pair of skate shoes??

theres soo many hedious colours on them now, like puke brown and puke green, or clashing yellow and orande that'll match nothing in your wardrobe.

or mesh material on shoes. wtf!? its hideous. i wish to destroy the inventer of mesh material.

Thats the other half of the reason I have two pairs of skate shoes. (The pair I actually skate in are beige and yellow and don't match anything I own)

Why oh why is Kenneth Cole the only "fashion" shoe company that makes kicks in size 14. DAMN, every other companies cutoff is 12. We bigfooted people suffer :(

:( <---- Sometimes I push the break, and my foots still on the gas

Go to an actual skate store mail order for the best prices and selection. as long as you know your size (different companies are different ....DC's are a half size smaller than most others) mail orders are the way to go if you can't find what you're looking for or if you want to save a bit.

Shoes are my vice.

If I go into a shoe store, I will buy something.

The solution?

I don't go into shoe stores.

I really love the blue Schemes. Also grey Omegas, grey Artos, grey Spartas and black Oarbs

where can i find them??
I'm gonna order my next pair. But since you don't know your size, go try some on beforehand. Most of the shoes on their web site probably won't even make it to Canadian stores.

I also love shoes as well LOL.
For nicer casual stuff I like Diesel (not good for durability but I like the styling), the Puma Platinum line looks amazing but is a bitch to find and is expensive as hell. Steve Madden shoes offers some nice stuff but some of the materials and colours makes me shake my head.

Plenty more but thats all that pops in my head at the moment.

you wouldn't have a problem finding this type of shoe...... if it was around 1995 :)

that was pretty much the blueprint for all skate shoes around then.. now alot are kind of like a hybrid skate-basketball shoe (in terms of looks).

some companies still have an older school line out, i'm pretty sure es does, so you could find that style around. it's just that you won't find it as easily as before.

^^^i know. i had about 4 pairs of black suede shoes back then and they were so comfortable

now wen i try some skate shoes they feel like normal sneakers. i feel the need to ask "whats the point?"

sigh.....i should have stocked up back then... :(
