May I ask where you are from?

I had always thought "trainers" was an English usage and sneakers/tennis shoes/running shoes was the typical american usage but I'm now wondering if it is regional

I do feel like "trainers" has gained more currency in the last decade because there are so many Aussie/English celebrities using the term in the states these days
I've always thought of "trainers" as a Canadian term (probably because that's what my ex-wife - who is Canadian - called them, and up until I met her, I'd not heard anyone else use that word to describe sneakers).

Hey i found a photo. And it's on topic to boot. Or to strandmok. As the case may be.

I love that the artist deliberately (on my request) added "flaws" to the art, to better imitate the true old school feel.

My back piece though, thats another story (and nothing anyone here wants to see).
Nothing wrong with old-school style pinup girls......one of my Fender Esquire guitarsView attachment 1339522
Got a black one as well, actually it was a Telecaster, but the bridge pickup died, so I re-wired it to be an Esquire with the proper pick guard. Other than the headstock, couldn't tell.
All of these posts about pin up girls and electric guitars has made me share the following video that has nothing to do with shoes. Some of you may appreciate it. Josh Turner, the guitarist, is my current favorite performer on youtube. Mad skills on his many, many videos.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
