The word was used to say he's not taking things seriously, and in doing so being disrespectful. This word was something I learned when a movie critic was describing Ryan Reynolds' character Dead Pool, I feel that the majority of people use the word colloquially in the way I did above.

Your point on my word usage overall is right on the money. Earlier in the thread someone took offense to a metaphor I made in regards to their use of aren't instead of are [double negative]. The metaphor was used to illustrate how I could be pedantic in my writing, but I chose not to be. Similarly, in my clothing, I may use items that stand out, but overall I'm not overly rule bound by what I might pair one item or another with. Unfortunately for the person who took offense, they missed this point, and went on to criticize my writing pedantically, somewhat comically if the person realized what really was intended.

I actually don't ask for opinions on the way the pictures look, I just post the pictures and receive criticism. Same with the way I talk. Seems analogous to a black person being singled out and told that the way they dress isn't appropriate, and they way they talk isn't appropriate. "You using big words boy. You think you're smarter than me?" I know it's not the same, as it's probably closer to how people are treated when they're new in the military or a fraternity.


Of course, I understand that people have a difference of opinion, I've stated as much many times. This point you make is perfect -- when did I ask for advice on any of my fit pictures? Believe hazing is different than criticism.

US 10.5 EEE in AE 65 Last, US 10.5 E in AE 201 Last
UK 9.5 Meermin Hiro-G Last but a bit tight on the 4th toe
US 10.5 EEE JM Melton
US 10.5 EEE Florsheim Sorrento

Which Artista last and width should I go with? I'm thinking Piccaso H, but the last is a guess. H is because the G width from Meermin is just slightly not wide enough.

That was me mate. What made you think I took offence? Not everything is about people taking it personally.

I actually find your butchering of the English language offensive though. It's painful to read.

Did you really just compare the way you're being treated to how black people experience institutional biases?

You paid to troll or just a hobby?

I have a pair of Hiro-G Meermins and wear a G width in TLB.

If the Meermin is veering on too tight I would go with the H on TLB. Can't comment on the Picasso however as I have only tried the Goya last so far.

Think Picasso and Goya should wear the same just a different toe shape but the body is the same. I believe that’s the same for all Artista lasts where the toe is the only thing changed but I can’t recall for sure. Maybe @j ingevaldsson can confirm when it isn’t the middle of the night in his part of the world.

Yes, same body on all Artista lasts, only toe shape differs.

Do you wear any AE or other brands? What's your sizing in those?

I would ask him to do an H and supply the extra insoles just in case. I started with an H fit (have orthotics) thinking they would be perfect but then realised they were a bit loose. So on the next order I asked for G and a pair of insoles for the H pair. That solved the problem
