1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Just bought a pair of these for cheap: [​IMG] I might pick up these too, but I actually prefer the reissue.

    The reissue looks a little too much like the Samoa, imo. I like the Samoa (have a couple of pairs), but the Italia had a totally different kind of charm.

    exactly. funny this was brought up since we were just having the same discussion on the mod forum I post on, about the new Italia being too Samoan.

    I find Nike Dunks to combine the best fit (I've got wide size 14 feet) without the chunkiness of say, the AF1, with quality looks in certain colors. They might not necessarily look quite as good as a lot of Adidas, but those tend to be too narrow for my feet for a comfortable fit.

    I have a small collection of sneakers I never wear (about 10 pairs) but I have a few regular pairs I normally wear to school / weekends.

    Normally
    - Converse Jack Purcells
    - Adidas Stan Smiths
    - Adidas Sambas
    - Onitsuka Tigers

    Used to wear Chucks but I hated the "duck feet" look.

    Agreed, best Adidas I have ever seen. Wes Andersen should stop directing movies and start designing sneaks.

    Same here, I have wide feet and dunks seem to fit a dream (though the toe box used to dig into my toes when I first got them). The amount of possible colourways out for dunks at the moment is a nice gimick.

    I forgot to say, I also like my Diesel Remy's a lot.

    I like Nike sneakers.

    They have a big range so I can always find something that fits.

    Chuck Taylor slip-ons, John Varvatos editions to match my distressed baggy jeans. With my fitted denims, I'll go with Ben Sherman Backrow slip-ons or my Keen Yogui. If I'm in a funky mood, I'll dig up my Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81s in the wild colors and find some shirt that clashes with it [​IMG]

    I have about 30 pairs, at last count. Everything from Nike Premium Blazers to wierd Italian brands. About 6 pairs in rotation at any one time.

    heres what i have:
    black one stars
    grey wool chucks
    faded out black wal mart slip ons
    sb delta forces for skating.

    im really starting to not like sneakers too much. i find i wear my slip ons more than anything, and my desert treks or allen edmonds leeds(crepe resole) coming in a close second. i save my sneakers for work mostly.

    funny... im th oppisite of most people, sneaks for work and AE for play

    i think the shoes i've enjoyed the most wearing would be callous tachikaze's. those were super comfortable- too bad callous isn't around anymore.

    then maybe a pair of visvims.
    then maybe sal 23's to remind me of those skating days.

    I've been watching a pair of these: [​IMG] on ebay, and I let them get bought by someone else. Now I'm pissed because I've realized that they're the coolest Stan Smith's I've seen. Anyone know where I could find another pair?
