The shoes you choose.....
    #1209053 - 01/11/03 11:02 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have always had this theory that you can tell a lot about someone even, if you don?t have any idea who they are, if you know what they choose for footwear.  As follows is the footwear in my collection:

Number 1)-  Work Boots.  Caterpillar brand.  I spend at least 50 to 60 hrs a week in these.


Number 2)- My "almost-everything-else" boots.  Dockers brand.  I wear these almost anwhere else I go outside of work.


Number 3)- My ?going out? boots. Classic Black 8-hole Dr. Marten?s. I wear these to clubs, functions, shows, etc.  I even wore them with a tux in a wedding party a couple months ago!


Number 4)- Hiking boots.  Vasque brand.  By far the most expensive and probably the most comfortable shoe I?ve ever owned.  These have been to many great places with me, including the highest point in the 48 contiguous US states (Mt. Whitney) and to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.


Number 5)-  Kicking around shoes.  Classic Vans slip-ons.  I wear these around the house or doing yardwork or maybe a quick trip down to the mini-market.


So as you see, I am mainly a boots person.  What does this say about my personality?  I?m not really sure, but I bet you get a better mental picture of the type of person I am just by seeing my shoes.  Or maybe you think I?m just retarded! :tongue:

So come on, we?ve had enough posts showing off everyones genitals/drugs/paraphenalia in the past, now lets see some shoes! :grin:

Wow, you do like boots, eh?  That's scary, you seem like an Authoritarian, j/k :grin:.  I, myself, choose shoes based on comfort.  In the summer, all I wear are flipflops (or sandals) , now that its a little bit more chilly, I were clogs.  May sound gay, but I'll be damn if my feet aren't more comfortable now than ever before.  Oh, I do have to wear backed shoes to work, so I have an old pair of sneakers and a newer pair of brown oxfords.  And around my house, nothing but cheap slippers.

I tried to find pictures like you did, but I'm too lazy.

So my list goes
1 Flipflops (summer)/ Clogs (winter)
2 Slippers
3 Oxfords/ sneakers.

At some point I want to start making my own shoes so I won't be supporting sweatshop labor.

Im all about comfort in a shoe and these are the best at that. They are Globes. The kind i think is chet IV.



They are really puffy and the tounge is attached to the rest of the shoe so you have to slide your foot in.

I too have a pair of classic docs. Steel toed, yellow stitching...I LOVE em!!! I've had em for years and I wear nothing else. NOTHING. Those shoes are molded to my feet...comfortable AND functional.

I have got boots like your number 2 down there for work. Only they are black and by bates. Most of my time is spent in them.
Then for casual wear depending on the season I have cheap off brand sneakers, the brand varies, or sandals.

My favorite hiker is made by Montrail.  I have some other hikers from Asolo, they are not nearly as comfortable but have lasted a long time.  The Montrails are really light.  I could walk through streams past my ankles and not get my feet wet.  Also good socks are important, I wear (lemme look) wigwams which last a really long time and keep your feet in good shape.  Ya gotta wear them with those caterpillars.  They are $6 a pair I think but your feet will thank you. :grin:
I havent tried the vasque boots yet... :frown:

Vasque is the shit. Sold exclusively at Redwing boot stores here. Kinda pricey (mine were over $200) but worth it. My feet will never get wet either until water goes over the top and runs down in (baffled tongues rule!).

Also, I wear Thorlo brand socks. Specifically the 'heavy trekking' variety. And I wear a wicking liner sock as well when I hike. Nothing more important when you hike than good socks and shoes! It can make or break a trip!

Fuck yeah to Boots! I dont like docs though. I wear some 80's issue modified american ranger boots most often, also late 50's possibly german spit polish boots, and tommorow i have Canadian made ranger 25 eyelet spit polish steel toes arriving at my door. I also wear some dress shoes reminiscent of creepers on special occasions.

I bought some cheap 20dollar shoes cause my docs got mailed off to be replaced and I feel stupid if I wear sneakers for anything other than running. I realy miss Dr. Martens, I have the steel toe ones with the cap that look like jump boots. Ive worn nothing but boots for probably 8 years now. Although I do have a pair of sandles for when its realy hot cause stinkin feet are not sexy.
