    Default Let's talk SHOES!!!

    Anyone have a favorite brand of shoes? I've been an avid Converse Chuck Taylor lover for several years. Gone through 40+ pairs of these babies, & I currently have around 15 pair. My newest pair I just got TODAY. They're the new black monochrome pinstripe ones. LOVE 'EM.

    How 'bout you? What are your favorite shoes?

    Holy Crap , Me too! I love the Converse Chuck Taylors. Just go into them last year. I bought my first pair last year for 20 bucks canadian. I wasn't really into them at first, but thier really light and comfy to walk in. I also had troubles matching my jeans with my shoes, but with the Chucks they match everything. Thier so great even Dior Homme based the look of his shoes in his Spring/Summer 2005 collection on them. The designer of Dior Homme, Hedi Silmane is also a big fan of Chucks and I think that's all he wears himself. The only setback is that my toes get wet/cold when walking through the snow in the cold Canadian Winters. I think they currently have a pair with wool coverings inside, I might want to buy those ones. I currently have a pair of Navy Blues in the High Top look. I'm looking into buying two more pairs of ebay, but that Ebay seller won't return my emails. CJ, do you know of any good websites/seller on ebay that might sell Chucks at a good price. I'm looking into buying the low tops in either white with the blue and red stripes at the very bottom or the all black monochrome ones.

    I like the ones above but the Ebay seller won't return my emails. He doesn't have my shoe size but he claims he has all the sizes in his ebay store. I went there and he currently only has 10 items listed there. Anyways I hope he emails back soon.

    I used to wear Puma and Diesel, but thier so highly popular on my college campus that it's crazy. Every second guy and girl is wearing the same pair. Chucks are populars as well but everybody's got there own style/look so it doesn't matter. I've seen green, pink, the LA Laker yellow and purple and even the John Lennon special editions on campus. Everyones got there own look/style to their Chucks so it doesn't matter.

    Desert boots from Clarks! Too hot for summer and too cold for winter, but still they stay on my feet most of the year. Steve McQueen had them, the Mods had them and every time I see someone walking the streets in a pair of Desert boots I feel that we have some kind of connection!

    AWESOME to find another Chuck lover here!!!! *I get almost all my Chucks from zappos.com. *Great prices, sales all the time, & FREE shipping. *Ebay is kind of hit & miss, to tell you the truth. *Sellers sometimes neglect to inform potential buyers about little abnormalities of the shoes sometimes. *Like, my brother got a pair of black high tops from ebay. *They were listed as new in the box. *Well...sure enough, they came in the box...but they looked to be VERY old stock, & the color had faded to a charcoal gray!!! *Zappos.com only sells the new ones, so you always know what you're getting. *Hope this helps!

    Hey CJ thanks for the info. on the website , I actually checked them out but I don't think they ship outside of the USA so I'm stuck there. Too bad :'( because they had some great prices and styles/colors for the Chucks. I think I'll just check around some more.

    By the way Panto, I like Desert Boots as well. My dad bought his pair in Spain but he couldn't find his size so he bought a pair in a smaller size hoping they would expand a bit. Too bad they didn't but he gave them to me instead. I really like and planning to wear then more this winter.

    i love timberland. not because they are particularly stylish, but they have earned my loyalty through customer service. i had a pair of boots that, after about 6 years of use, started to split in the soles. i took them into the store (not the store i bought them in) with no receipt or anything, and they resoled them for free. no questions asked. did a really great job too.

    Ironically, fragrance is only my second passion. My first passion is sneaker collecting. My closet is plagued with Michael Jordan shoes. Shoes are a contributing factor to why I'm broke. BTW, I have the lowtop Chuck Taylors in every color.

    For dress shoes, I prefer Trickers. I also do some hiking, and for comfort and durability you can't beat Altberg boots IMO.

    I live in high heels, including my slippers at home so casuals shoes are a lost concept on me.
    Something to do with years of ballet training I suppose, but my feet actually hurt when walking in flats.
    My favourites for evening are black satin Dior pumps and leather tie-up Russel&Bromley spiky stilettos.
    For day I have several pairs of very feminine Pura Lopez pumps but for dressier occasions I love my Chloe python slingbacks.
    My all-time favourite pair are Lanvin shoes covered in some striped silk that tie around the ankles. They look totally crazy and chic at the same time.

    Hello! I'm new here. Just bumped into another favorite topic.

    casual:
    Favorites: timberland, Enzo, and some clarks shoes ( Not all). They earned my loyalthy through style (comfort) and quality. But my favorite pair is a DKNY, very cute and comfortable.

    Had bad experience with: Easyspirit, Naturalizer. Bad quality; not sure why a pair of Easyspirit boots was labelled $120; it couldn't survive 10 times of wearing.

    Business:
    Favorites: Aigner, Ferragamo ( some). This is because I like pumps and I can't wear high heels ( they are killers). I have many pairs of Aigner. My favorite Ferragamo is a pair of black Satin, which is not as durable as the brand sounds.

    Having big feet (UK12 and wide) it's sometimes a pain to get what I want particularly in sales, which is a shame as I am definitely a shoe man. I also like gloves, hats and other accessories which is quite appropriate for this forum really many of the first perfumers were also glove makers, leather scenters and as today purveyors of other fancy goods. Personally, *I'm really more into the traditional side of things: Crockett and Jones, Churches, Trickers, Barker, Loake. Though there are some Jeffrey-West shoes I love (pointy, slightly fetishistic while still smart!) likewise some Prada and the like. On the cazh side of things I like timberlands as long as they eschew innovations such as folding down or having writing all over them (which I despise in all forms of clothing) and *there used to be some Le Coq sportif trainers in orange and blue I liked but they seem to have vanished and I also wear MBT trainers for their supposed posture and heath benefits, though they are truly truly ugly.

    All the talk of knee-high stilettos with shorts, and the thought of Levannah's fine ankles curving into an exquisite pair of deeply impractical heels has brought about the necessity of a lie down, perhaps with moist balsam infused town on the forehead. Either that or the solid week of festive boozing is taking its toll. Ere I die, I wish you all the compliments of the Season.

    I've got a vintage pair of converse that I wear every now & again, but I've got a light brown pair of Trickers which have served me well, I also wear Crockett & Jones, RM Williams boots, I have a lot of respect for other English shoemakers such as John Lobb, Fosters & Sons, Edward Green. New & Lingwood & Grensons. Since Prada took over Churches, my confidence has yet to be restored...

    Lately I've been having a sordid love affair with Berluti; the French cobler, they are very fine shoes indeed, Westons aren't far behind either... Has anyone heard of Henderson's?

    I hate most of Miuccia's designs, but when it comes to shoes I go for Prada. Along this I tend to buy all kind of brands, just as long as I feel the shoes are good looking and well made.

    First the issue of Prada and Church's shoes. *What has been the impact I wonder?

    I have a pair of black Diplomats that just pre-date the Prada era. *They have been away for refurbishment in the Prada era and came back looking as good as new. *Presented in a new box, they looked just as they had when brand new except they felt like my shoes *I examined some shoes in the Jermyn St branch of Church's last week and to my (admittedly not well-trained) eye they looked pretty pukka....

    I also have a pair of very Prada-influenced ankle boots 'the Glen ' which have now gone two winters and they remain absolutely beautiful. *The style is of course controversial to some, having a distinctively squared off toe.

    As far as slippers go, I have three Church's pairs currently - wine velvet Sovereign; black leather Hercules and brown leather Ajax. *All were purchased in the Prada era. *The Ajax are better IMO than the older versions I have owned over the years. *The other two pairs seem well made and are very nice to wear.

    So, I should very interested to hear other's views on this delicate subject.

    I have never owned any Berluti but did read a fascinating piece about a self-styled 'Swann Club' of London based Berluti owners which claimed that they met to clean their prized possesions in Krug Champagne

    I'm going back to Puma.

    I tried out a pair of Macbeth shoes, because they got good reviews and I liked their look, and after 3 months the toe is peeling off already. $103 shoes and the toe peels off in less than 3 months? I don't even wear them that much.

    But I do recommend zappos.com. The macbeths were the first pair of shoes I ordered from them, and they're willing to give me a full cash refund if I mail the shoes back, which I am. Their delivery is great also.

    I'm also thinking about trying a pair of these out, posted in another thread: http://www.cinti.it/html/catalogo_uomo.cfm

    I've never tried anything like those but the first shoe on the first row and the third shoe on the first row have my interest.

    May not be at the right place to say this, but if I had to choose between shoes and a bottle of something smelling nice...well, I woudl probably take both. Seriously, love shoes and shoes love me, and that is my longest lasting love affair. Gucci makes comfortable shoes, but the wast popularity they enjoy puts me off a little, although I still enjoy my five or six pairs. Louis Vuitton makes some excellent shoes as well, but those tend not to be exactly the walking shoes and I prefer only to wear those in the evening. My all time favorite, good for walking, good for shopping, eating out, dating, doing whatever, are the Fratelli Rossetti. Have bought some 20 or so pairs in the past few years and have at all times been more than satisfied. They also have a sports line, called "flexa", so that is where I get my sneakers. Am totally relious about the F. Rossetti, so much that I visited the factory, as some sort of a pilgrimage.

    TIMBERLAND!!!

    Who can live without those boots. They are so comfortable. I own only one pair and have had them for 2 years already. I'm going on 3. They have been through snow, rain, mud, grime, and PAINTBALLING!! These are pretty hardcore boots. They are all black with a nubuck rim. I can wear ankle socks with them because Nubuck is exremely soft and comfy on my skin. They have a yellow leather insole and that will stain your socks for the first year but after that it is just smooth sailing after that.

    I have to give these shoes a 10/10 because of their overall comfort and durability. They cost over $100 US so they are expensive but worth the use they bring. I will only get rid of them when they litterally fall apart. I might want to get a nice pair though. There are so many ways to customize your own style. They can match anything you want. Build your own!! I want to do that. 2+ years with only one pair of boots is a great value and with such comfort, it is worth it!!

    BUY THESE BOOTS... if you want your feet to love you that is....


    PS~ Shifts has the most old skool shoes ever. Those are pretty cool looking but I would not be able to wear them. At least someone can pull it off... ;D

    Oh man shoes!!!! I love shoes OMG!! I have quite a few pair. It's funny because I was never in to shoes until I moved to MD. I never even wore heels until I moved here.

    Now, I just love heels. Gucci is my favorite. I have a few pair and have my eye on some for the winter as well. I love Giuseppe Zanotti, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Lacroix, Pucci, etc. I plan to add some of these to my collection soon. I have mostly Gucci, Prada, D&G, Nine West, Bebe, etc. I'm 5'6". When I go out, I have to have on heels that are at least 3 inches. I love the way they make my legs look.

    What's funny now is that my shoes are starting to cost waaaaaaaaayyy more than my whole outfit now!! I'm starting to feel like the lady who buys expensive shoes and cheap handbags to match. It's like blowin me, cause alot of my clothes are made by the same designers lol! Hell, the handbags are even worse. Throw some kind of reptile carcus on it and you would have to make a choice between paying your rent, car note, utilities, and food or get the shoes lol! It's crazy for real, but I really need those shoes. I really do LOL!

    Wow. I posted a long time ago about my boots. I still wear Timberland Boots almost exclusively because of the previously stated positives of owning a pair. I have 2 more pairs of the boots now, one dark brown with a green trim(all nubuck), and one Timberland color(all nubuck).

    I have extended the fassion to include some Nike Dunks with rediculous patterns for unique quality and extreme comfort. All my foot apparrel is high top (boots, dunks), except for work and running shoes. I like the high ankle support even though I don't tie my shoes in the first place.

    That is my style. I'll get a picture up eventually. It works with my weird sense of fashion. Just thought I'd add my new input.

    Who else has something they wear that is out of the norm??

    For many years I only owned and wore one style of shoe - The Stacy Adams "Madison" lace up boot. I think in total I went through about 15 pair of them before deciding to move onto something else. They were quite literally the ONLY shoes I wore, regardless of occasion. I walked 10+ miles a day in them, every single day and wore them to pieces rather quickly.

    I've since amassed quite a collection of shoes and continue to beat them to death and wear them into the ground. I purchased a nice pair of black Alden oxfords for $3.14 at a local thrift store that I've been punishing daily for the last few months.

    Current summer rotation:
    Allen Edmonds - Capri loafers
    Cole Haan - loafers
    Johnston & Murphy - monk strap

    Winter:
    Allen Edmonds - Park Avenue
    Alden - monk strap in shell cordovan
    same Johnston & Murphy's

    Casual:

    I'll probably buy another pair of Alden shell cordovans in black when the Brooks sale rolls around late this month.

    I wear heels for work, and I love wearing high-heeled boots in the fall & winter.
    But for casual wear with jeans & a t-shirt, I wear skater shoes, preferably Adio:

    I am addicted to boots and I have a huge collection of boots.

    Check out the latest " Harley Davidson Talie boots", which I ordered through "shoedeals4u.com".

    These are the last ones i bought as an evening pair of shoes. Stuart Weitzman is a genius of shoe designing! I have a silver pair from him too, but I'm too lazy to search for them right now.

    Shoe Arsenal:

    - Optical White Hi Top Chuck Taylors (used scissors to cut them down to low tops)
    - Black Monogram Lo Top Chucks
    - Navy Blue Hi Top Chucks which I spray painted the shoe laces gold.
    - Limited Edition Tanned Chucks with inner fur lining (to keep my toes warm in the winter, regular chucks don't do that)
    - Black & White Checkered Slip on Vans (don't wear them often, but I reach from them when I'm in a hurry to put something on)
    - Tanned Desert Boots (friend gave them to me when he bought them in Spain, last pair in a size smaller than his feet. He thought he could expand them, but it never happened and I got them.

    And more recently:



    I believe the most I ever spent on a pair of shoes, but I walk a lot and take public transportation so I needed some really comfy shoes. I was speaking to a fellow basenoter friend and she recommend "Campers". I roamed the site and found a pair I liked. Spanish based but I ordered from their New York store. The most comfy shoes I've every worn, they feel like slippers, it also has advanced shoe technology...absorbs sweat and molds to the shape of your foot.

    Only thing is, they're new now, and I never liked the look of new shoes, I think it adds character when they're a little roughed up.

    I have been very naughty, I bought a pair of Repetto. Even though I am super broke from fixing the pipes and straightening things up at home. Repetto is a French company which is famous for making ballet and dancing shoes. They are light and flexible and comes in variety of colours. I bought this at a sale. (The picture doesn't show the real colour, it is supposed to be a metallic glittery purpleish blue)

    I adore this type of boot and wish they came in size 2 (35) for women.

    Love them!

    I don't have enough shoes. I have lots of kids and having kids sort of put a curb on my shoe collection. I have 3 pairs of boots, I love boots, I remember favorite boots like they are old friends and sometimes I pine for them! It's true! When I was a kid I always brought my new shoes to bed with me, I would leave them on my pillow beside me so I could look at them and smell them. What kind of shoes a man wears can be and has been a deciding factor in weather or not I fancy them. I have size 2 shoe, which is a 35. I love Italian shoes and they make small sizes. I love strappy sandals, I love shoes that are uncommon. I love shoes! I love high heels but I can't walk in them. I miss my favorite shoes.

    Those Sperry Billfish are my favorite shoes. I wear them fishing and for walking exercise. I've got five pair of them.

    LOL at them worn out ass chimney cleaner boots...


    Anyways. For my own style I tend to go very very plain. I used ot be a very very avid "shoe head" I used to have a pair of shoes to match any color outfit I had. Then I started having to pay for my own sh*t... That put an abrupt stop to that. I love Air forces 1 nikes in low tops. IMO They're classic. I also like K-Swiss classics.. those are comfortable, stylish and above all affordable. Pumas are another shoe I like. I'm also a huge Timberland boot fan. The wheat color originals went with almost anything casual. Blue jeans and a tee-shirt and Timbos son!. of course I'm young and sport my clothes differently than you old folks but hey...
    I'm so fo sho' it's no facade/ Stay out of trouble momma said as momma sighed/ For her fear her youngest son be a victim of homicide/ But I gotta get you out of here momma.. Or I'm gonna die..Inside...So either eay you lose me momma/ So let loose of me!
