That's OK.
Don't you hippies just go barefoot anyway?

I find no shoes can be trusted when it is hot and/or humid.

since they stopped making chuck taylors in america the quality has taken a nose dive...

No. this is not OK Stands. You're a grown ass man and grown ass men don't wear inferior shoes. I feel strongly about this. I know you are a family man but DO NOT sell Yourself short. Maybe the kid doesn't eat for a coupla days...no biggie, that's what toys are for. Get your grown ass self some comfortable AND fresh kicks. Form follows function Yes but that isn't an excuse to buy Crocs.

My spidey senses tell me you like high tops man but these are on clearance...You look like a size 12.

Now if you REALLY wanna ball I'd get these joints. A little spendy I know but You owe it yourself.

Shoes are the FOUNDATION. You don't cut corners on the foundation.

I have always said, there is no excuse for inferior or poor-quality shoes. Just as there is no excuse for hideous shoes...it is a stop while you are ahead type of art; just like just quit painting, just quit adding a bunch of extraneous mess on your shoes...but that is another story.

Holy shit I never ever thought I'd see an exploded drawing of a Teva sandal. That was a mindfuck. Just Don't Do It.

But those Polo's are the jam.

They always seemed pretty shitty to me. Really hit or miss since 1980. You never know how long you can go before you get the flappy sole.
The only thing that's gotten shittier about them is the price.

the first Asia-made runs of Chucks seemed to fall apart quickly anywhere two pieces of rubber were glued together. I think those were the ones made in Vietnam. Since production moved to China things have been much better.

Back when they were still made in Kentucky I used to buy the ones stamped "IRREGULAR" in red on the back of the tongue (from my local independent old school shoe store, of course) at a $5 discount. I could never figure out what was wrong with 'em, so I asked the salesman one day. He told me the factory stamped everything made on a Monday like that 'cause the workers would be too hungover from the weekend to reliably make shoes.

ventilation would be a great part of the shoe-plan because the worst thing that will make a bad shoe is when your foot is soggy all the time. if they could install a air conditioner in the shoe then you would be feelin' perfect, i bet they have shoe-air-conditioners in japan already. otherwise, cutting in some holes makes good sense. if you get the classic vans then you could cut out every 3rd or 4th black square, it would be a lot of work but it get the job done i bet.

if they can pop popcorn with cell phones then they can make shoe-air-conditioners. i have vans myself, green ones, they have checkerboard, it's classic.

Get some Crockett & Jones. If you take good care of 'm they'll last a lifetime. They even look cool. Because they are SHOES.
You'll pay about $700/$900 for a pair, but it's worth it.
Posted: Jun 20, 2008 3:20 am
I've heard of Crockett and Tubbs...

I'm gonna go listen to "The Jimmy Choo's" by Chester French! The finest in shoe rock!!!!!
Posted: Jun 20, 2008 3:34 am
Naw, I rescind that. Mental as Anything has a damn fine shoe rock tune.

"I've got toes and I've got feet,
In snappy shoes they cross the street...."

You should check out the band The Shoes!
They were fuckin great.

I can't find any footage of the band I mean; they had a few hits in the late sixties, early seventies.

"My life is a piece of a shit that got caught in my shoe" - "Three Nights" by Black Flag.

Really, Henry? Caught IN your shoe, like INSIDE your shoe? That's harsh!

Robin, if you were a REAL man, you'd get some of these.

And you would wear them day and night and be god damn happy you had them!
