Double 0 Soul making me regret not buying the feline print Vans a few years ago :laugh2:

These Flamingos were a nice summer pump too from a few more years before the cats, they only cost me £17 from Ne.S.T. wish i had bought a few more pairs.

I feel like I've probably asked about this before, but does anyone have sizing advice on the Warehouse lot 3400 sneakers?
They only go up to size 11, but I wear an 11 in the Lofgren low top sneakers with some thin socks.

Corlection has those on sale at the moment (not in US11, sadly) — they state that Warehouse run "1/2 to 1 size bigger" than usual, so it wouldn't surprise me if they fit up to an actual 12

Thanks for the info, I found some similar confirmation from some other western vendors but not too much.
Might give them a go once all this blows over.

Oh, this reminds me, I bought some blk/blk 70's Goretex Chucks a few months ago, ive never had Gore Chucks before so just a word of warning, if you're between sizes take the size above (as i did) or size up half a size.

Re- the assembly of regular Hi's, the piece of canvas which makes up the tongue is completely independant of the upper, stitched through just behind the toecap.

Re- the gore version, in order to make it waterproof, the pumps are lined with a full gore sock/liner which fully encases the foot up to the 3rd eyelet.

IMG_9322

..so if like me you have quite wide feet, you can't open up the aperture beyond the 3rd eyelet, no matter how much you loosen the laces making it a bit of a struggle to squeeze your foot in.

But do they actually keep your feet dry?

Moonstar Gym Classic

First two are old pics - I got these a few years ago. Cheap and durable, I think I paid about £55-60 which I think is decent value for a vulcanised unit

Duke, I've always liked Moonstars, do/did they ever do a hi top? Sizing for wider feet?

As a fellow Palladium wearer, how do you rate the soles? 

(I have bought a second pair of older Palladium 'paraboot soles' and the feet like them :blush:)

Moonstar does make a high top, the ones I've had my eye on are the basket hi's 

Not sure if these strike your fancy

Many thanks for the swift reply olmecasteve. The ecru (?) colour is fine and they look solid, is there any colour variation or is that the stock model (looking for a rust or a darker green in a hi top on an E fitting (l think)

They have a few variations, but hard to come by.

Not sure about fit, haven't gotten mine in, so I can't really comment on that

I usually wear EE, and I have a pair of Gym Courts that you can see on page 11. Their models that are made with canvas are a little unforgiving width wise, but stretch a little bit after a few days of wear. Their models that are made with suede fit my wide feet much better.

They’re a little bit on the narrow side Doc but not overly so - I wear a 9.5 in the Palladium and a 28JP in those moonstar. The sole is tough but not like the Palladium - more tradition chucks stylee.

Moonstar make plenty of variants - have a look at their Webshop but there are many other outlets

Also Moonstar Gym Classic (paravul coated canvas, as stated on the inner side of the tongue)

Bruised, holes on some parts of the shoes & cracked on stress point of the rubber but still going strong structurally.

Worn in rotation with the Moto for ~2 years now.

Those sustainable fashion/sneaker brands pop up like the denim Kickstarter brands in 2010...

Anyone seen or own these? Saye Brand..also started as a Kickstarter under a different name back then.

Retro design (are those Reebok inspired?!), definitely 80s style

I'm definitely more of a boots guy, but I do have a few pairs of white sneakers (mostly high tops.)

My favorite pair is my MiJ PF Flyers. I got these a couple years ago and they were already fairly heavily used, but they still have plenty of life in them.

They have the most cushioning of all my sneakers and I love the green trim/accents.
