If my memory is not failing me I think that high tops is another name for basketball shoes.  These type of sneakers have a lot of padding on the sides of the shoe and ankle support because when you are playing basketball you are going to be doing a lot of side to side movement and the ankle support is good for the jumping.  They do not have a lot of padding on the base of the shoe which is where you need it if you are running.  Running shoes are a different type of sneaker, then the basketball shoe is, they have a lot of padding on the bottom and none at the ankle and no padding at the toes since you are going to be pushing off with your toes when you are running.  Basketball shoes simply do not have the padding in the right spot for running and you stand a good chance of hurting your feet in the process.  Running shoes also do not make great sneakers for walking around the neighborhood, since they have no padding in the toes one stands a good chance of hurting your toes, walking shoes are good for that, they have even amount of padding for the full length of the base of the foot since while walking you will not be doing any real pushing off as you do in running.  A good example of a walking shoe is the Sketchers Go Walk line of shoes http://www.skechers.com/men#Styles=%2Fstyles%2Fathletic-shoes%2Fwalking-shoes, several other companies make walking shoes as well, although for some reason Nike does notnot, http://www.newbalance.com/men/shoes/Walking/102000,default,sc.html.   One thing the my doctor has always said is "Americans love our shoes too long and we love the wrong shoes for  the task at hand."  I think he is right.

Would side-zips be inappropriate with a suit?

Any recommendations for a cobbler to re-sole a pair of Visvim Virgil boots that currently have a worn down vibram christie sole? Would it be possible to switch to a different vibram sole or does it have to be the same one? I'm located in NYC.

 

Thanks!

Looking for cheap alternatives that look like Guidi boots, better than All-Saints quality, preferably up to $200.

I'm experimenting.

Maybe John Varvatos boots from ebay? Many of those feature distressed leather like Guidi, but the styling is different. There may be a few that look like Guidis, i dunno

I've tried LEC, not a good fit, and uniqlo seem to have low stock on size smalls. Thanks!

I ordered it thinking for $55 I can use it as a beater oxford shirt, but it turned out so beautiful now I'm only wearing it when I'm in my best. But that doesn't stop you from making it a beater shirt! Otherwise you can look into J Crew (only worth it at about $35 imo). I have heard good things about the oxford shirts at Target (which at $15-20 IS the definition of a beater.) I don't know what's your fit issue with LEC (all of the mentioned above happen to fit me pretty well) so I suggest you try all of them, find one you like, and buy 10 of it.

Hope this is the right thread for a quick denim ID.  If not, someone point me in the right direction.

WTF are these?!?! biggrin.gif  1972 on the back of the buttons and 34 tag.  Thrifted them, they seem new-ish like they haven't been washed feeling, so I'm pretty sure 1972 doesn't actually refer to the manufacturing date.  I like them, and I really want to know who made them.

Well the only clue I can give is button flys I don't thing came out until the 90s, so the jeans can't be anything older that 1990.

Look at his post history, clearly a neanderthal or a troll.
