Like I said, I know it’s basic but I live in Vans. I have like 8 pairs in different colors and designs. They’re just so damn comfortable.

I don't mind them if they're actually working out in them. But it baffles me when people wear them around casually. Even when working out, I personally opt for a more pale, less vibrant shoe.

Black oxford shoes are everything I need.
Best kind of shoes ever imo.
yes it's still a small selection and most of the heels are stilettos
living in a metro area, being able to walk in shoes for long periods of time is crucial. You can't do that with tall heels.

does anyone have a pair of everlane's day heels? i love the way they look, though a few people i know think they're ugly, and i love the idea of a low heel i can walk in all day.
i also want a pair of margiela tabis, either the heeled sandals or the boots, so damn bad

i guess tabis are not that difficult to find and are still being produced, but if i had the money i'd go for an original 90s pair, or just a pair from before martin left in 2009 >>83437
yeah the more i think about it i don't really like the black ones, but there's a "natural suede" option that I really like - i think they might be best in lighter colors tbh
Where do you guys normally get your shoes? I'm looking into more minimalist shoes or black oxfords like >>83115
that are more high quality than fast fashion shops, but I don't live in an area with dedicated shoe shops beyond Clarks. >>83435
I really like the chunkiness of the heels, but puckering from the elastic is a buzzkill, especially on the black pair. The nude ones are cool, though.
I have a pair of Clarks oxfords actually. They're comfy, look nice and have held up well. I think they're called hamble oak?
I don't know where you live but I've ordered shoes from asos, schuh and office and their returns are pretty straight forward.

What sort of shoes do you wear in hot, humid weather when you have to walk a lot? I'm going to Japan in summer and I don't want to wear flimsy sandals or flip flops when I'll be on my feet all day because I'll definitely get blisters. Are there any brands that are particularly comfy with solid soles? And that can be worn with dresses/skirts? I can't wear sneakers for that reason, they don't suit my outfit. I don't need anything super pretty but they have to somewhat match.
I even bought pic related in anticipation kek. I know, I know, they're crocs and crocs are the worst, but to be fair people wear the fuck out of them in Japan and the cut/colour matches my clothes nicely. But they don't quite fit right so they're not as comfy as they should be.

i don't really think of them as "sneakers", and they are a little weird-looking - you might not like the tabi split toe, but would you consider the nike air rift (mary-jane style shoe on the left)? they used to show up in a number of ~japanese street fashion~ photos because they were super successful there and are pretty comfy. they're around 100 dollars, if that's okay
File: 1527315066175.jpg (544.42 KB, 730x1000, imgrc0074249702.jpg)
a pair of flat slingbacks might also work for you, and it turns out that crocs does make them for about 30 dollars, available in black and in white as well

and if you change your mind about sneakers i think it's totally fine/definitely "in" to wear them with skirts/dresses, though you might like the streamlined look of a white tennis/court shoe and matching socks, jacquemus style (all of these models are wearing spring courts)

I've had half of these shoes on my wish list for over 7 years. I rarely buy shoes, the ones I had before my current shoes were hand me down Nike's from a younger family member.
My boyfriend loves collecting shoes, he got a new pair for his birthday and they look so nice. I should just splurge on a pair or two since most of the ones I have last way over 2 years.

I found these at Walmart for $5 lol I originally bought them for a cosplay and just ended up wearing them for everyday use since they feel so comfortable.

I’m going to Vegas on a summer girl’s trip. Recommendations for sexy party wear for the heat and intense amounts of walking?? I’m thinking wedges would be a safe bet and maybe boots for the evening? I want to go all “Vegas Baby” but I don’t wanna look like a stripper.

>>84242>not be seen as freak
If you're hot enough, you can wear basically anything you want. There's that saying about pulling off a trash bag as a dress.
Also different scenes and areas have different norms. I don't own any of these but I bet I could rock them in my area on a friday night without any strange looks and with plenty of compliments. But if I wore some of the other shoes in this thread, I would get strange looks. Fashion is different everywhere.

I’ve never seen those but these were super popular. I have them in white with pink lace. The pink ones with white lace sold out so fast. And the other colors sold out shortly after. I still really like these shoes with a larme or Hime kaji outfit. I didn’t think these were ita. I had no idea really. Kinda saddens me but oh well I’ll still wear them.
omg anon, i have been eyeing them for like 2 years now but feel bit ridiculous as i don't even need
slippers lol why can't anyone give me these for xmas or something
Damn… I just might buy a pair if they're cheap enough where I'm at or at least some similar ones.
If not, I'll pass. Comfortable shoes are a must for me since I have wide feet.
I remember I fell in love with the way they looked when I saw Mio wearing them in K-On lol that was YEARS ago.

I splurged on these during a Ted Baker sale. I think they’re breathtaking but I’m scared to wear them because 1) I’m terrified they’ll get messed up and 2) I barely ever wear high-heels so 100mm heels seems quite intimidating lol. I’ll need to practice a lot before I wear them in public- start from a lower heel height and work my way up, yada yada.

What type of sneakers are a good investment?
High ending but not flashy would be preferable.
File: 1541864562566.jpg (33.42 KB, 710x533, detail (8).jpg)
I've saved towards a new pair of Fluevogs for Black Friday.
These would match more and be more versatile with outfits but >>100488
are cuter, but harder to match with outfits.

I've never had platform shoes before so I bought a pair of Cosmics from Rocket Dog on sale for 30% off the original price.
They came in the mail the other day and they fit great. I have a bit of wide feet too. A good investment and they don't look tacky at all. Walking in these doesn't feel bad either.

My fashion sense is pretty bland, it's all graphic shirts and oversized sweaters with leggings so I want to dress up a bit with my shoes. These from Lucky Step are next on my list of flashy shoes. I'll probably buy them for myself on Christmas.

I just got my first pair of vans this summer and they're so comfy, sad i missed out on these. They would've been a cute pop of colour and comfort…there was also this skull version with the slip ons but they seemed kinda childish and eDgY?
File: 1541877330502.jpg (49.17 KB, 500x500, vans-vincent-vangough-slip-on-…)
I don't know though, these could work well with my usual style but these are the type of shoes that need to be kinda worn in looking before they look cool?
These are lovely. Almost all my shoes are literally vans haha. I think the vans authentic especially look great after being worn in, but I even love the look of them when they are falling apart to fuck. The vans old skool hi are nice too and really comfy and wear a lot longer than the authentic. My authentic pairs last about a year and a half max, but I do wear the shit out of them like every day.
I mostly just hate people who wear vans as some kind of skater touch to le quirky girly outfit and have the huge skater shoes with like a dress or whatever? Really specific people I see do it and it looks so clunky and 2010. Can't go wrong with a plain pair of black/white (not checkered imo) vans and I think the authentic ones like your pic are the only ones that sometimes look good with neat designs like this. Otherwise they look very pander-y and the special edition ones are always work by the ~so quirky gamer girlz
i love the not in your face designs they have! i have the bw old skool and i do sometimes wear them with a t-shirt dress but that's a whole other vibe compared to that avril lavigne frilly dress ft. sneakers typa deal.
It's also weird and cute to see monki carry vans now? but it does add to the quirky phenomena you mentioned.

I recently got a real adult job and the first (probably only) "luxury" purchase I made is a pair of Doc Martens 2976 boots. I love them but holy fuck my socks have little blood spots on the ankles because they're so hard to break in.

I got a pair of Cole Haans very similar to these years ago at a discount store and they're starting to show some signs of wear. I love the look of very masculine cut Oxfords, especially with a little thicker sole because these are very comfortable. Where can I find something like them that aren't $160+ a pair, in any color? I typically would save up but I'm just starting a new job so I need a replacement sooner than I can do that. If you do have the cash, I would definitely recommend them though, I walk at least a mile a day and wear them often- the sole has only started to wear down after 6 years of semi regular wear.
Apply some bandages over the areas where there might be friction.
My first pair where the Polley shoes, and now I also own the 1460 boots.
Breaking them in was a bitch, but now they're the comfiest shoes I own.
I'll try this but I'm not sure if I'll have enough time to remember bandaids while in the process of rushing out the door. The Polleys look like they're meant to be worn without socks too, that must have been really painful! >>100570
Mine are actually vegan leather - not sure if that'll make a difference

I just got my first pair of docs recently too. My mum got me a pair of vegan 3989s as a random gift. I was so shocked because they aren't cheap and she isn't rolling in cash but she insisted. I was thinking I'd have to spend winter wearing an old pair of £13 boots from new look.>>100568
Clarks might be worth checking out, though the pair I had only lasted 2-3 years.>>100583
My sales rep told me you can't use oil on the vegan shoes. She said something about a water based spray. I think it's the patent cleaner from looking at their website.

I tried wearing the Polleys with shoe liners, but even a quick run to the store ended up destroying the back of my feet lol
Ended up buying some cute socks from aliexpress instead.
pic very related
I wouldn't recommend docs for winter, it's the fastest way to lose your teeth lol docs are extremely slippery on snow, especially this freezed morning snow. Last winter I literally tip-toed every day through an uphill to my school because it was so damn slippery in docs. They're warm enough though.
I have secondhand Timberland winter trekking boots and they're amazing. Super warm. Not very presentable though, if you need to look clean-cut or whatever. But I think they have some charm combined with a thick sweater. The mountain chick look

Not the prettiest, but Ariat's extreme waterproof boots are amazing. They're fully insulated and I've walked through soggy, melting snow and stayed perfectly dry after keeping up with reapplying waterproofing every few months. If you have a tack shop near you, they often sell them cheaper than online. I don't even ride horses but I wear English paddock boots all the time because they're cute but actually durable.

Bought another pair of these despite that my previous one’s heels caved in due to one of the heels being very hollow due to shit quality. But they’re so comfy during the cold season and are easy to walk in.https://www.hottopic.com/product/black-overlay-pole-climber-boots/331961.html?cgid=girls-shoes-boots
Anon it's time to love yourself. You can find other, better options than shitty Hot Topic boots that cave in at the heel.
I saw your post days ago and I've been perplexed ever since.

Harley Davidson? I have the two on the left n I love them! But I live in a place where it hardly dips below 50 degrees F so idk if they are ideal for winters.
