I'll be sad when these one day become unwearable but going by how these feel that won't be for a very long time

Finally, my first pair of 70's Chuck Taylors. I didn't think they would be so different and so comfortable.

Search didn't throw up any results so asking if anybody owns a pair of Golden Goose sneakers and how do you like them?

My former coworker liked them a lot, I think he had two pairs. 
But he got them at a pretty solid discount since he used to work at a store that sold 'em.
No idea if they are worth full retail or not though.

When/where did you get these? They look great? Do you have a model name or number?

No love for Veja sneakers here yet? Veja Environment friendly sneakers

I have been feeling a little bad about paying Nike for my Chucks. Googled for ethically produced sneakers and these showed up. I might cop a pair instead of paying Nike or Vans any more of my money. They look good too.

I bought in 2014, they are called Timberland Earthkeepers sneakers.

@i-denim

Alot of folks around my part of the world wear them. They're actually pretty decent in person and have turned my head more than a few times. Most of their range is very reminiscent of basic Adidas and New Balance, which isn't a bad thing.

Veja is also rather well-known and popular these days because Meghan Markle has been seen wearing them. They do look rather nice, and I agree that they look similar to some New Balance sneakers I've seen, albeit cleaner/sleeker.

Got the new one star academy ( jackstars ) a few days ago , really nice trainers and quite comfy

The colour is really hard to capture correctly , it's more of a faded red 

The suede is nice but I prefer the suede on the star bars release from a few years back

Any suggestions for something that will fit my wide high arch feet without killing my knees? The standard $50 New Balance I usually wear seem to be getting cheaper and less comfortable (too squishy!). I'm normally a 4e in New Balance, although I can sometimes fit in EE or "Wide" sizes.

 

I used to love All-Stars, but I just can't wear them any more.
