What Sneakers Are You Wearing?

What are y'all rocking on feet these days? Looking to get a new pair. I have a couple pairs of Ultraboosts and some Nike Epic React 55s. Last two pairs I've bought have been much more casual/lifestyle type (Nike Killshot 2 and some suede Brooks Brothers). I've had Salomons in the past which were great as well. On Clouds are everywhere now, same with Allbirds. Can't decide if I should get another pair of Ultraboosts or Reacts in a different colorway or if I should branch out. Also, is getting a pair of shoes just for the gym worth it? Typically whichever sneaker I've had the longest gets rotated into my workout pair.

I like barefoot running shoes like the Merrell vapor glove, or the New Balance Minimus. Always in all black.

Adidas Ultra boosts are by far the most comfortable and versatile sneakers I've ever owned. Great for running, working out or relaxing. Haven't bought any other sneaker in about 2 years

It's been so hard to break away from the Ultraboosts. There are pretty much unlimited colorways and different collabs. I'll probably end up getting another pair.

Massimo Dutti if I'm wearing a casual outfit. Classy but not too pretentious

APL Techloom Pro's in all white. Look great, not the most durable. Looking to try a pair of ON Clouds next.

Feb 17, 2020

My college roommates wore APLs. What are the durability issues you've had?

Feb 17, 2020

Sole on right shoe has become unglued (cosmetic, not detrimental) in one spot and both shoes back ankle where my achilles rubs the material has started to fray and wear away. I have owned them for less than 6 months and rotate them with other pairs of shoes so this really shouldn't happen. I do occasionally wash them, though.

Just bought a pair of Yeezy boost 350 v2 Citrin. Love it!

Feb 17, 2020

I've never been a yeezy guy but just saw a pair of v2s on GOAT that may be worth a purchase. They're a little bit of a budget stretch though.

Feb 18, 2020

Me neither.
Then, I saw them in a boutique store once, tried them on and was immediately sold. Ditched the store (as the price was highly elevated) and bought them on Stockx at a small premium (~5%) over retail

I exclusively wear the New Balance OMN1S. They're great for basketball, going to strip clubs, recharging after a long day at work, and sleeping

I'm a fun guy. Obviously I love the game of basketball. I mean there's more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself. I'm not just gonna give you a whole spill... I mean, I don't even know where you're sitting at

Common projects achilles low tops, and a few pairs of all white converse low tops to use as beaters.

Used to rock a lot of Y-3 but not so much nowadays.

Feb 17, 2020

I've always wanted to ask if the common projects are worth it? I feel like the design language (and even typeface in some instances) is very similar to axel arigato, greats, and many others. Obviously these are very popular shoes, with many high profile patrons, so I'm probably in the minority for being skeptical

Feb 18, 2020

Yeah I'd definitely say they're worth it. The design and quality are great. In my opinion every similar brand just has something off about the overall shape - eg the Arigato ones just look slightly too much like they're playing up to the whole chunky sneaker BS (although I don't know how long they've been making that shoe).

400 USD is pushing into pretty expensive territory for a casual shoe so there's plenty of skepticism, but for me there's not really any true rival at a lower price point. I don't see the point in spending 200-250+ for a shoe that tries to be as good but just isn't (i.e. the shoes you see on all of the "CP alternatives" lists online). If the price is too much to justify then I would honestly say just go with some monochrome converses - you still can't beat those for some things.

Honestly, this is my favorite shoe I have worn. I have the 4% and Next% too, but I really just love this shoe. I have 4 pairs in different colors. It has a carbon fiber plate and can be had for $100.

Throw on a pair of boat shoes and prepare yourself for the typhoon of pussy that follows

Mr. Sterling Archer:

Throw on a pair of boat shoes and prepare yourself for the typhoon of pussy that follows

My opinion is that it has to be standard Sperry Top-Siders or nothing, although I'd love to hear arguments for a different brand. I like the off-whites since they fade into a nice grey/tan, although I see the benefits of the medium browns. In my opinion the older the better for them, and I've worn about 4 pairs to death.

Has anyone else tried the ones with the knit canvas uppers? I've got a yellow pair that I got for a steal, and while good shoes, they just aren't quite as good as the leather ones. They do make quite a statement with the right outfit though. (Yes, I know it's a douche move, but sometimes you just want to put off that vibe)

    • 1
Feb 21, 2020

I completely agree. Sperrys are the only brand I've ever bought and the only one I ever will. I've had the blue and grey colors and loved them both.

A lot of my buddies go with the moccasin-style, but I've personally never been a fan.

Don't apologize for being a douche. Everyone who doesn't look like a douche secretly wishes they did ;)

Feb 20, 2020

Maybe it's because I'm a poor boy, but I feel better spending $100+ on boots or shoes I'd wear with a suit than sneakers. Ultra Boosts are probably as expensive as I'd go lol

I just go barefoot. My friends fucking hate it tho.

Rich people sneakers are so fucking ugly. The only cool/different pairs are the Balenciagas. Everyone else makes those stupid "premium leather" knockoffs of timeless classics. Not worth the price. Rather get a nice 60$ pair of Stan Smith Adidas and wear them through all phases as they age nicely until I'm tired of them.

I agree!!! I wear Air Maxes, Jordan Retros, Yeezys, Balenciagas, and Pradas. I refuse to wear those sneakers people on the UES wear, that look like knock off stan smiths lol.
