I have been wearing a pair of Adidas Goodyear shoes to the gym for almost 4 years now - and they have recently developed cracks and tears that indicate these shoes are quickly heading into the sunset of life. I am really not good with athletic shoes at all but after looking around for a reasonable replacement - I found these: http://www.journeys.com/catalog_detail.aspx?ID=42734 I would buy them - but my size of 9 is not available anywhere it seems. I like this design - and the bone and brown color looks neat. Anyone know od something similar I could buy? I like shoes with narrower soles as opposed to the big flat soles common in skate shoes. Also - if the shoes are G8 made that would be a plus (I am open to paying more for this point). Thanks!
