Last pair of shoes you bought?

We've had the driving shoe thread that sort of turned in to more of just a favorite shoe thread...

We all know that all Eurospek buys is Puma.
Whateverland really likes Saucony.
Topher prefers Kenneth Cole, etc.

What was the last pair of shoes you bought?

I got this Justin80 approved pair for my last set:

Do you have ties with little horsies on them? 

Doesn't that clash with your emo lifestyle?

The only time I wear ties is when I go to an important meeting.  Otherwise, I'm business casual.   star

"100% organic hemp upper"

"produced by Vegetarian Shoes"

Buncha tofu fartin' hippies....BUT no corporate influences here, right?

"made in a union shop"

My ass.

$58.50 + 13.00 shipping, and I'm helping stop Nike, by helping unionized hippies?  I don't get the upside here, and I can buy Converse Chuck Taylors for $20 less.

PLEASE......

Chuck Taylors will always be cool, but they're not really a very good shoe.  Worth the price though.  I usually go to Big 5 sproting goods and see what's on super-sale.

Re: Last pair of shoes you bought?

No more Pumas for me for a while, they are a bitch to stand in all day at work, their sole is like standing on rocks, already started downsizing the collection, and duked out two pairs on ebay with a little profit, only 2 pairs left in the closet which I'm keeping and they are the famous white ones with the no socks pic. big_smile

New shoes for work and whatnot :  Adidas ZX 750

Re: Last pair of shoes you bought?

Despite what Justin and Jim say - about hippies and unions - it's a very well made shoe.

You can go ahead and support sweatshop labor and buy Chucks (now owned by Nike & no longer made in America) - they'll last you a few months.

or

You can support fair trade and workers who are paid well and work in good conditions and buy Blackspots -- they'll last you about ten times as long as a pair of Chucks.



Hmmm... and for the record - only about 40% of the shop is unionized, because the other 60% are happy enough with their situation that they don't see the point in joining the union. They get an hour and a half for lunch every day, the factory is quiet and clean and they all make about 150 % of Portugal's minimum wage.

Now... kindly go stick your heads back up your asses, Justin and Jim. I'm going for a walk in my ethical shoes.  cool
