Sneaker-Fi (or Shoe-Fi)

post #1 of 384
Thread Starter 
Well there's a thread for just about every other hobby out there, so all you sneakerheads post up and show us what you have and what you want!

Or, if sneakers aren't your thing, show us whatever other shoes you have!

These are my favourite shoes; not-so-affectionately termed "clown shoes" by some of my close friends. Adidas zx500 patent pack. The laces are an "extreme tweak" by me:



And my new shoes. Adidas NBA series limited ed: boston celtics

(i'm australian, i dont care one way or the other for any team).

And next up I'm dyin to get some miami heat shoes


So come on.. show me what you're wearing or what you're wanting!

Those adidas are making my ears hurt.

I've got a pair of all black converse high tops and a black shell top adidas.

I'm into streetwear but not sneakers...that road is a slippery slope that leads to Magic Card-esque collections of unworn shoes that are super-limited-custom-untouchable I do have some Nike AirMax's, Vans Skate-Hi, Chucks, Zoo-Yorks, and some other random ones. Nothing fancy though or anything with a 'pack' somewhere in its name. Most are black / white / grey of some sort for maximum matchability, though I wouldn't mind a neon pair if only they went with more stuff. I can't say the same for my caps as I have a few that only work with one or two outfits...hate that!

BTW check out my site, not so much sneaker culture but somewhat related.

I'm into the whole sneaker thing (it's obviously by my avatar, not my pic though). I LOVE the Jordan 3,4,5,6, and 11, along with sb and some gr dunks, but I really prefer OG nike shoes, as I have wearable griffey diamond furys from 95, and some wearable nike cross trainers from 92 (damn the leather Nike used back then was amazing, no visible creases to this day!).
As for streetwear, gotta love lemar and dauley, along with brands like the hundreds, and TBG (from Toronto, of course).

A peek into my closet...

Not all my shoes are shown, but to be honest, I haven't worn the five not shown pairs in months.

Shoes are just about the LAST thing I will ever spend money on. I buy ONE nice pair of shoes (usually a pair of Reebok DMX shoes, because I love the way they feel) every three or four years, and I will wear them until they have completely and utterly fallen apart. I've had my current pair for about 2 1/2 years now, and they're still holding up fairly well. They're turned dark gray and brown from all the walking through the fields that I do , though...

Favorite shoes ever.. K. Abdul Jabbar Low. I'd buy them again if they ever broke on me, even though they're well worn in.


Also have a pair of Brooks Beasts for running and a pair of Puma Speed Cats. I love the Brooks. I hate the Pumas; I'm never wearing them again.


Moreover, I have a pair of Adidas Meteor track and field spikes for track. Pretty hot spikes IMHO.


Not shown: a pair of Converses, a pair of Nike Waffle XC cross-country flats (really nice speedwork shoes), and numerous dress shoes.

I stopped wearing Nike (I used to be "ballin'!" but not anymore) and Puma street shoes a while ago.. I don't think I'm ever going back.

Well the good thing about owning multiple pairs of shoes is that ALL shoes will die with enough use... if you have several pairs then each individual pair will get worn less, so they'll last longer

my adidas patents are my first "proper" shoes, and the reason that i went and bought the celtics ones (.. aside from them being super sexy) is that i'm worried that eventually my patents will get old and yucky (but i DO clean them every day that i wear them, with a toothbrush and soap). By having a 2nd pair of shoes, they will last twice as long. I only get to wear sneakers about 4 times a week, so each shoe will get 2 days use per week max. In wet weather, some yucky shoes come out of the closet instead
