Camper shoes

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Any thoughts on Camper shoes? I've owned a few in the past and liked them at first, but I grew tired of their style after a year or so. Some of the recent styles have a unique look but I wonder if they are over priced.

Any other Spanish shoe brands worth considering?

Camper shoes are W I D E and overpriced. I've got a friend with wide feet and bad taste who swears they're the most comfortabe shoes he's ever owned, though.

Larry David approved. I like some of their boots though.

I think 99 percent of them are not that great looking but they are probably some of the most comfortable shoes ever made!

I had a pair of the early pelota shoe. I agree that they were hella comfortable and I liked the look. But I haven't liked any of their other shoes.

^ amen. i have ooold pelotas that i can't get rid of despite their recent dormancy. i put them on as i debate whether or not to bin them and their comfort keeps them in my closet. they are nice and beat up, but the thick soles have decades left in them.

Whoah, these are still around? I wore them back in college (7+ years ago!). Mine were the classic brown leather ones. Are they still made in Spain?

come to think of it, mine are of the same vintage... that's some shelf life!

I think 2000 was the year of the Camper. I never lived these down with my parents. My dad recently bought new bowling shoes (uh, to bowl in) and said "Hey, I think you'll like them, they look like those shoes you have!"



I remember thinking they were REALLY expensive at the time--what, $120? Actually, that is kind of expensive.

Well, most of them now are around the $180 range on the low end.

I've been looking for these Campers but nothing even close to it when I visited the SoHo store last month.

I was in the store the other day, the majority were less than 180...

Don't necessarily quote me on this, but the last pair I bought were made in Morocco (which is only a couple of miles away from spain...).
I still wear a pair of the once in a while when I know I'll be on my feet all day long. Can't stand the sight of the classic Pelotas anmore, though.
