Thinking about buying these, but is it I or is the Goodyear logo on the side a bit off-putting (even though it is made with Goodyear rubber)? Does anyone own a pair of these? Adidas Tuscany GT: (Sorry, I am unable to post the image for some reason) Tuscany GT Jon.

it is odd for that logo to be on the side... wouldn't put me off from buying them though.

Not my cup of tea personally...

Yuck, they would look like soccer balls on your feet.

HAHAHA
I didn't think of them that way, but now that I look at them... I'll probably get them though, I like the way they look, plus they are different than most of the sneakers I see lately, and I already did the whole thick, chunky, basketball Nike (or other company) style look. Now, I'm more into Motorsport-style, streamlined design. Jon.

they look pretty good, but that Goodyear thing is strange. I think that would keep me from getting them.

I guess they are trying to show that they are made Goodyear rubber. Maybe I can find a way to cover that up? Jon.
cover? why? it is not a problem, this is sneakers. if you like it buy it, do not listent to what people think about such a detail as small "good year" on a sole.

Yeah, but I don't care what other people think, I don't like the way it looks. I'll still buy them anyways. Jon.

The soles are amazing, having clearly been designed after one of Goodyear's performance tires. Very cool. If they're made in white I would jump through a few hoops to obtain a pair. Â
--EDIT-- Several other colors.... http://www.eastbay.com/catalog....sport=5

I am getting a pair of Pumas from VillageShoes tomorrow, so far the experience has been very good, they sent me the UPS tracking number via email the very day I placed the order. I will update the forum if I am satisfied with the order that way no one else has a bad experience.

Jon.

BTW: They reran Bad Boys II last night and I had it on in the background, and noticed that in one scene Will Smith has a pair of Adidas that looked surprisingly like the GT's.

Funny, my preference has sort of been in the opposite direction. I was really into the Speedcat style shoes when they first came out, and found that they looked really good with peg legg style jeans. However, recently I've been moving towards a looser style of jeans - either like the APC "English: style jean or a full leg bootcut like the Paper Denim LTD, and I find that a rounder toe, chunkier sneaker balances out the look more. Plus, I like the idea of chasing down the Nike Quickstrikes - and most of those are in basketball models like the Dunk or AF1. Ultimately, though, I think that middle of the road sneakers the Adidas Sambas or Reebok Supercourts, that don't try too hard, are the most versatile model. BTW, I think that a fuller cut, less pronounced bootcut and a fuller legged straightleg jean in darker, less distressed washes are going to be more and more popular. Hopefully, the waistline will remain relatively low (the APC English style has a perfect medium low waistline).
What year did the Speed Cats come out? Jon.
