    My favorite is the Adidas Italia (the original version, not the current one). I wear Chucks and Ski-Hi's more often though.

    Are they still available online, or anywhere else? I'd love to get the white with green stripes, but I haven't found them in my size yet. Seems my next pair will just be the reissue in burgundy red, though they sure look a lot like the samoas. (link) To bad they don't make them in kangaroo leather anymore

    For a while, a local sneaker shop had them, but only in a sizw 13 [​IMG] I finally found the pair I wear now on Yoox - and snapped them up immediately. The old version was so much more stylish and the kangaroo leather is so much more comfortable than whatever it is they use to boot! Keep looking on Yoox. Sometimes they come up with improbably things, like 5 year old stuff!

    I would, but as I've mentioned elsewhere, the connector for my camera is broken. [​IMG]

    My favorite shoes are black Chuck Taylor high-tops. Wore at 15, wore at 25, will be wearing at 35 next month.

    I just recommended a pair of low-top Chucks to the young lady who works in the next office, who found it amusing that I've worn them for 20 years across three decades. I found her amusement more depressing than I found the source of her amusement. She bought the brown ones, and I successfully kept her out of Hot Topic.

    Would be a tie between my green w/ yellow and red highlights Puma 5000m's and my Brown/Black Asics Mexico 66's.

    I have never received more compliments on any shoes/sneakers in my whole life than with the 5000m's. In fact on a single day, there had to be around 6 people that said "nice sneakers".

    The Mexico 66's I wear often with jeans because with the dark color they go with much of my casual wardrobe. I like how super light they are too.

    Never purchased Puma's before, and Neiman Marcus has a sale on Puma.

    Specifically, I'm interested in the Anatomical Sneaker by Alexander McQueen, originally $260, now $146.

    I'd be interested in opinions from current owners or just thoughts on the sneaker from anyone else.

    Here is a link to a pic:

    Also, any advice on sizing? I wear a sz 10 in a Nike SB Dunk or Adidas. What should I get in the McQueen?

    The one with the see-through bottom is cool, but I have no idea how Puma McQueen's fit. Lately, I've had a hard time fitting into pumas, I think they changed their lasts or something.
