    Fair enough, I though it might be a certain style or something. Are running shoes that much more comfortable than say, a nice pair of "dressy" sneakers?
    Seen as we're generalizing anyway, I think Japanese tourists tend to wear sneakers, but Chinese tourists do seem to wear running shoes. It's hard to say anything about Europe, because it's more diverse than the US, but I hardly see Europeans wearing actual running shoes as a part of their daily outfit, but they do wear a lot sneakers.

    An oldie but goodie. I would've never thought of wearing white denim jeans but these look great with that jacket! [​IMG]

    (The jacket's sleeves look a little short tho')

    Forget about 'tourists' for a second, but in general amongst younger fashion forward people there is an obsession with cool running/trainers. One only needs to look at the posts on a blog like highsnobiety to see post after post of special edition running shoes - aka: Nike X (famous fashion name) etc.

    I will do it sometimes like Kappelan has, but often it's to do with comfort and sometimes it's the Sportcoat that is the afterthought, not the shoes. Or when traveling, if I'm taking a Sportcoat, it's much easier to wear it than pack it and if I happenf to be wearing jeans and sneakers, so be it.

    Not looking to start an argument here, but I'd say it's not that outrageous to say that the US is culturally more homogenous than Europe. That's one of the reasons why the EU isn't doing too well atm, Europeans identify themselves as French, German, Spanish, etc. instead of European, while most Americans identify themselves as American. Of course this is a very difficult issue, and I am by no means an expert.

    you do know Europe is a continent and America is a country. And in terms of the US being homogenous, New York, Chicago and even Houston will debunk that theory.

    Have you met anyone from Texas? They tend to identify as Texans above all. :)

    I LOLd so hard at this (no offence), as it makes no sense! It has NOTHING to do with the economic crisis! The recession is to do with all the European countries sharing one currency and how that has failed (which was so obvious from the start--kindergarten logic).

    Yes, I too have taken plenty of macroeconomic courses. The EU is a monetary union but not a fiscal union, etc. I know all the theory, and how for example Greece would've been able to devaluate its currency and avoid some of the problems it's having if it weren't a part of the monetary union. Nevertheless, the cultural differences do play a part, and it would make no sense to ignore those.

    I think we agree, the US is one sovereign nation, and Europe exists out of 50 sovereign nations. I never said that the US was homogenous, just that Europe was less homogenous. I love the US, even had an American girlfriend for a year or so. I've traveled across the whole country, and every state is different and has to offer different kinds of food, nature, etc. Hell, I'd like to move to US in two or three years.

    I did travel through Texas a couple of years ago, and I have to say, some of the nicest people I've met in the US were from Texas. I had planned on celebrating 4th of July in Austin, but because of some transportation problems I ended up in one of the smallest towns I have ever seen, and had the best time. Everyone was so hospitable!
