Those vintage runners are great! Really like the designs of 'em, plus they are usually comfy and lightweight

New skate shoes, Vans “varix”

I think they have just the right amount of 90/00’s skate shoe charm without being too ugly. either way they feel good

I used to like Dukes back in the 90's..their J-Dub

In a world of Duffs, Etnies ect... they were nicly understated and comfy af with a nice grippy gum sole.

This is a nice snap shot of the era...

Dysfunctional by Aaron Rose, i think it was the very first work he put out back in 1999 brfor going on to make Beautiful Losers and so on. I bought it from Magma Books in Manchester when it was released, it can change hands for big bucks nowadays.

Not quite as cool, but certainly more comprehensive, ive also got this 400+ pg Illustrated History of Skateboard Footwear, from the 1950's to sometime around the early 00's

Adidas Tennis

fullsizeoutput_2e29.jpeg

These are a repro of the early 1960's Adidas tennis shoe, unbranded tongue, unbranded heel and ruberised toe box, further modification would lead to the Adidas Robert Haillet which would be re-branded the Stan Smith in 1978.

What's been anyone's experience with Moonstar? The Gym Courts look great -- they have more padding than Gym Classic, whic seems to be what most non-Japanese retailers stock.

Seems like they're often on sale at various places for under 100 euros. How do they fit? I'm guessing size down half for sockless or thin socks? TIA

They also make Shoes Like Pottery and PRAS, my experience with those two brands is buy your normal size, ie: 27cm = UK 8, US 9

All the Japanese sneakers I’ve tried have been sized the same: true to length in cm / one down from Brannock. I wear a 28 cm (size 10) in Japanese vulcanized sneakers, versus a 10.5 in most boots, or a 44 in Euro shoes

Converse jackstar for me 

Jordan 1 for Jack 

These jackstars have seen a good 3 years of pretty consistent wear and they have cracked on the midsole a little and  letting in a bit at the heel , there still super comfortable and I couldn't throw them out . Has anyone used shoe goo before ? Any good ?

^ top stuff Flash and the little fella

Dug out these Veja x Cyclope trainers today... unworn in a decade or more... I had to look them up to see when I got them

They’re here too – where, bizarrely, yours truly popped up as a fit pic for Grailed... wtf... hopefully it's just a personal ad for me ^_^

Nice change wearing them today even if they include red
