    I don't really like them.
    Something about them just seems so wrong. [​IMG]

    damn, are they really that ugly?

    i might return them. what would you guys recommend for a high schooler? Around the same price range, I'm looking for white/greyish/blackish shoes. For an idea of what I already like, I have two other diesels, one hugo and one dreamer, green on white onitsuka's, and a pair of zara shoes. thanks.

    those shoes are bad news bears-they remind me of the hazy days of 2001-even that is a little difficult to admit. buy some vans or some nike dunks-plenty of colors and a nicer shape without turning into "old man" shoes like tretorns and the like.

    If Dodge came out with a cooking utensil line, would you buy it? Or if Nabisco made premium whisky, would you drink it? Diesel's a clothing company and I think they stretch themselves a bit thin when they try accessories such as shoes. Turns out Nike, Puma, Reebok, Stacy Adams, et. al have been making comfortable, good-looking shoes for several years now. Why? Because they're shoe companies. Now if you'll all excuse me, I need to kick off my Honda shoes.

    Gotta agree. The only thing decent from Diesel is their denim (if you consider it decent at all) so look no further and concentrate on a real shoe maker.

    I think Diesel is very confortable, compared to other "shoe brands", like Converse, Puma, Adidas, Nike, etc. I don't know how, being around for so long, these brands produce such unconfortable shoes. Or maybe it's just me. I agree Diesel's design is not that nice.

    I disagree with the majority here, I like those white Diesels. I like their general sneaker style and wouldn't mind trying those myself.
