@Radiohead89 what is the exact model number? Besides 997 of course ( @Maynard Friedman )

M997 GY in my opinion the best new balance.  I’ve had the 991, 993,1300 and 996. Check this out.

I couldn't resist the suggestion. But the stock laces are probably the cheapest laces I ever touched :D

Discovering visvim sneakers has been detrimental to my wallet. It’s upsetting bc i didn’t want to like them but they’re so comfortable...

Yeah i have those too! “Black”...wish they were actually black and not the faded black/brown. I ended caving and getting a true black classic pair of skagways.

Ah I’m the opposite. I prob have 8-9 pairs of skagways and 3-4 pairs of kiefers. I just got a pair of folk after looking at non sneaker options from visvim for a while. I’m a big fan of the redesign of the skagways.

I like those. They look like a fusion of Jack Purcells, Bensimons and Spring Courts...

The "split toe" stitching won me over when I saw them in person.

Has anyone ever had a thin layer of felt on the soles of their sneakers/trainers? I understand this often happens with Converse, or in my case some Pro Keds and is related to lower import duty on footwear classified as slippers.

Anyway, apart from simply wearing them (I wore another pair of Pro Keds with the felt years ago and it took ages to go), does anyone have any tips on removing it quickly?

It’s a really thin but tough fabric and seems to be bonded with a strong adhesive. I wonder if I could burn it off somehow. Couple of photos for your perusal:

I had that on a pair of converse.  Working on my feet all day and cycling to and from work never got rid of it.  If there’s a nuclear blast it will just be that stuff and the cockroaches left.

Try 99% Isopropyl alcohol, dab it on liberally and leave it to soak before scrubbing it with an old toothbrush, just be careful not to get it on the glue bonding the foxing tape.

Cheers Neal, in the event of that being unavailable, are there any more common, household agents you’d suggest as a substitute? Admittedly I’m in no rush as I’ve had them for 6 years already!

WD40 would dissolve the adhesive but make them slippy, if you're in no rush you could order some IPA from ebay, that's where i get mine, it's not expensive, i use it for cleaning the stainless  in the kitchen (hob, extractor and such) it works a charm.

btw- nice pumps Martin

They brought back the kiefers for one season a couple years ago! I ended up getting another pair of white kiefers in case they never come back.
