Post your favorite type of shoes. Anything from sneakers to military boots.
Rosh One is a pretty nice model in my opinion
Almost any kind of loafers, moccasins, driving shoes, etc. Comfy as fuck and they look great.
Casual leather boots are the best.
just picked those up in black, such a nice boot
>boots are my favourite shoes
these are really comfy to me, and the minimal branding really makes me happy. I have a pair that I've worn everyday for 2 years, going to shows and hiking by accident and all kinds of stuff. The shoelaces just broke the other day, and now there are little holes in the toecaps.
I think I might buy another pair but I'm not really sure, maybe I should branch out.
nah, I'm just gonna get another pair.
classic just dont get all mfa with it
if it wasnt played out yeah
12yo: the shoe
you better be a nextlevel asian
getting a little cringe in here
that shit is ugly
I like em
if it's a meme it's a good meme
I'd rather just get cdg cons though but thats just me
I like adidas over nike and wear stuff like y-3 , tubulars, and zx but these hold a special place in my heart
God bless you Nike Prestos. If there is ever a time when I don't own a pair I'd rather die.
They also come in black
Opinions? ?? Just coppex
>Grow up in the southwest
>Develop deep love of cowboy boots
>Family moved to the northeast when I was starting highschool
I've conformed to local fashion now, but damn I miss my western boots.
Own about 5 different pairs of timberlands but wear the pic related the most, Goes with most anything
I don't think I'll ever be able to wear them, but shoes in the vein of guidi, a1923, and layer 0 are fucking beautiful
Just how durable are these things? Enough to justify the price hike over plain chucks?
Of course ;)
Nah, I don't like monster, but it matches my eyes.
White is usually worn by skinheads. Red's usually a commie thing. Black and red equals anarchy.
I had black and red at first, just cause I only had those colours at hand, but as soon as I could I got my green ones.
In my country, communism and anarchism are trending topics among youth, so yeah. I also didn't want to wear em like everybody else does, mainly.
Serious question - how do I stop my boots from smelling?
They kind of smell on the inside, which i can temporarily solve with like baby / foot powder, but the fucking external sole of the boot smells - not stepped in dog shit or anything like that. It's a crepe sole so I dont know if the rubber might have absorbed odor or something like that.
Anyone have any experience, suggestions, or anything like that ?
What do you think about military boots like these?
>but it matches my eyes.
>toxic waste green laces
This anon is trying to troll you, don't listen to him. The bleach will deteriorate the quality of the rubber and fuck up the colors of the sole.
Your best bet is to leave the boots in freezing temperatures for a few hours (the longer the better). Either the freezer, or if its cold enough outside overnight. Freezing temperatures will kill the bacteria and odor and you should be good to go.
i stick my shoes in the washing machine with a couple of towels.
You could get some washing powder and dilute in water and scrub the shoe exterior and in-sole gently.
Otherwise just keep spraying them with air-freshener every now and again
Don't listen to this, it's another troll. Freezing a crepe sole for an extended period of time will cause them to delaminate.
If you want to remove aromatic compounds and kill microbes, your best bet is a nonpolar solvent. Try soaking a rag (or similar) in some naphtha or acetone or toluene, and leaving it wrapped around the sole overnight. Be sure to do this in a well-ventilated area, or in an air-tight container.
>lolololol he doesn't realise he's gonna make tnt lololololol
Yes, I work in a lab developing technologies for additively manufacturing tissue scaffolds from nanoscale thermoplastic filaments.
Those chemicals are commonly sold as lighter fluid (naphtha) and paint thinner (toluene). You should be able to buy either at any hardware store.
i'm stuck in this world where i'm a skeltal and this fucking baby is trying to sell me tnt
sorry man it gets to me sometimes
I have dark green ones right now. Changed the toxic ones soon enough cause they were too... TOXIC???/(@?(#(
show's over senpai i found ur profile pic you need to get some fresh air man, damn
looking for a good pair of boots like pic related, preferably less than 300.
i'm in canada, so they're just under 300 but i'll get fucked on shipping. really just looking for other options with this style of boot, i guess it's called a trench boot, but google just gives me oak street shit. timberland has pic related but they're really ugly.
here's a listing for the same product on another website
if that doesn't work, try googling "jumper boot"
shit I'd recommend wholeheartedly like alden, carmina, vibergs, etc. are out of your price range
Meermin makes some great offerings at a lower price, but canadian import taxes can easily push them over $300.
How would you feel about getting something used?
Much of what I said to the other guy applies to you. You could definitely grab Iron Rangers, other red wings, or wolverine 1000 miles for around that price when there's a good sale. I'd also recommend Danner, Diemme, and Fracap for even hardier boots - consider seeking a rubber sole (vibram, dainite, lug, etc.) rather than a leather one. At regular price you're SOL for those.
LL bean mainline boots are considered probably the hardiest in their price range, but I think they tend to look pretty bad. Look into Katahdins or Chippewa as well.
Shipping to EU may rack up some $$ though.
My personal favorite, too bad i fucked them up by not knowing how to take care of them
Fracap is actually around that price but I wasn't really sure just how hardy they are. Would you say that Fracap Scarponcino or Alto boots are actually better suited to winter conditions than IRs?
Main reason I wasn't too keen on grabbing IRs was because of the lack of a rubber sole which would make traction pretty bad with the ice here.
>Would you say that Fracap Scarponcino or Alto boots are actually better suited to winter conditions than IRs?
Given my personal dislike of smooth soles for dealing with harsh conditions, yes. I don't have personal experience with Fracaps, but they're known for making hiking boots that should be pretty damn hardy. But you could also very easily have a cobbler or RW themselves resole iron rangers to something more suitable if you really like them, though that will mean more cost.
That said, metric assloads of people are plenty happy with their iron rangers in winter. If you like the look of them, by all means, go for it. Just be a little bit more careful if you ever have to walk on ice.
looking at this really hammers in that black boots are underrepresented in the general population outside of /fa/, barring docs
the 50 shades of brown present in american/menswear is so much more common despite the whole SLP/heroin chic/biker aesthetic things going on
they're a good deal more matte in real life
actually pretty versatile imo
stick to dark pants and a monochrome or low-contrast ocbd and I'm fine
or maybe I'm just completely clueless
Can anyone identify the hoodie and jacket and the boots especially in this pic
Only non-pleb posts itt.
Welted shoes you cheap shits. Wholecuts are particularly elegant. Pic related grey wholecut from edward green
Put simply, yes. Except that the "meat", as you put it, is one of any number of novel in-vitro models of human organs grown from iPS cells, created to study intercellular transport phenomena. Think regenerative medecine and cellular biology, not food production.
black heeled ankle boots, forever and always.
I also wear 10.5
Get a size 10. 11 will be too big for your feet.
To the other guy who cared about the durability of shoes like pottery the price hike I'd say is more about the look of the shoe rather than the durability. That said I've had mine two years and done all kinds of stupid shit in them and so far only the shoe laces have snapped and the rubberized area where the toe bends has seperated from the canvas a little bit. I'm at work right now but I'll post pics later.
they pretty much are chucks, but they have WAY less branding and I really love the canvas color. Do they hold up better than chucks? I can't say, but they hold up pretty damn well.
hold on I'll take a couple more pics, mine have a little cicada on them that's been rubber stamped on or something. but I can't be arsed to change the giant settings.
oh shit I mixed you up with a guy from another thread
yeah they're supposed to look like chucks lol
they look great for sneakers you've been beating the hell out of for 2 years
I appreciate the photos. I couldn't get over the blue sole before but now I want these a lot more.
yeah man they are a fantastic shoe, It's probably going to be my go to pair for a very very long time.
about the blue sole, I don't think anyone has ever noticed desu. Or at least they didn't mention anything about it. Although the rubber stamp on the side people have thought I stepped in gum
Well, I don't know if you are able to buy from this website, but here's a link to the shoes on J&J's official site
Anyone had experience with New Balance?
I bought some 574s that I loved but the front inside of the shoe felt really harsh against my big toe whenever I walked. I was told they fit true to size, and they did, but the tip of the toe was quite painful. Should I buy a half size up?
They last a lot longer.
Just look at the manufacturing process.
They're hand stitched and the sole is fused to the upper through vulcanization making them far more durable than a simple glued sole (converse).
Clearly the running shoe.
If I had to wear one shoe for the rest of my life, it would be a white asics running shoe.
I like em more beat up though. I also love Tims
I don't know you but I think I hate you
not even the guy you're talking with, but...
Timberland makes a huge range of boots, some of which are quite well made, specifically the Timberland Boot Company line for fashion forward boots and the Pro line for work boots.
