    What shoes do you wear?

    Let's have a proper argument in here. What shoes do you wear outside of work?

    Generally it's trainers in summer, boots in winter for me.

    Depends what I'm doing. I wouldn't wear shoes to the shop or runners to a wedding.

    My Adidas Sambas do the business all year round, and I have some other cheapo Adidas things for the gym.

    Mens feet should not be seen in public. Awful behaviour.

    I got rid of most recently as they were showing their age, current collection is:

    3 Pairs of Supra Hi-Tops (2x White, 1x Black)
    2 Pairs of Nike Tennis shoes (1x White/Red Tick 1x Black/White Tick)#
    2 Pairs of Puma Tennis shoes (1x Blue/White 1x Gold/Black/Green)
    1 Pair of Adidas Pro Model Superstars (Hi-Top)
    1 Pair of Smart Shoes (for when I'm being forced to at gunpoint)

    Mostly just wear the White Supras, Gold Pumas and White Nikes, the rest are for walking to the shops/mowing the lawn etc.

    I'm such a boring pleb I have one heavy-duty pair for all seasons. Steel-capped, black and bland. I've got a pair of Converse that I've haven't put on in probably about a year. Snug as fuck but getting them off feels like a faff.

    I can see them. They are just those small socks for girls with the sticky pad on the heel which prevents it from slipping off

    Some cheap £20 ones from Peacocks or Primark, I believe. I don't tend to spend much on clothes, it's pointless. I'm a comfort dresser so £2-3 shirts/jumpers suit me down to the ground.

    Front row is the good shit. Nike Mayfly Woven is the ultimate shoe. They're the yellow ones in the front row (and the battered grey ones just out of shot).

    Trainers (vans/etnies or something usually) at all times outside work (other than formal occasions obviously).

    I typically just buy a couple of pairs of whatever is comfortable so currently I wear Adidas zx750s in either navy/navy or navy/turquoise (a new grey pair is on the way to replace the navy ones I wear in the office).

    Other than that I have some running shoes and some smarter ones for times when you can't get away with trainers.

    I prefer something light and comfortable as I imagine anyone would, but as most adults I have ton of shoes for different occasions and weather.

    I've got a pair of Sketchers I wear 24/7 work or casual. They are the most comfortable pair I've ever worn so I'm on my 4th pair.

    Otherwise it's brogues if I'm meeting a client, or boots if it's particularly icy out.

    I am a firm believer in this too, though. I suppose I can accept bare-foot if you're walking on the beach. But other than that, just put some fucking trainers on. I've never owned a pair of flip-flops in my entire life.

    Yeah, but you live in a place where you'd lose your toes to frostbite if you ever wore them out.

    I'm never more than a mile from a beach.

    I have these two pairs for work:

    https://www.colehaan.com/2.zerogrand...ck/C23807.html

    https://www.colehaan.com/zerogrand-w...an/C14493.html

    and they are legit some of the best things I've ever bought. Haters can hate, I'll take solace in my lovely comfy feet.

    Can't believe I've been mocked for what I spend on shoes when someone is spending 3x as much as I am on fancy crocks.

    They're 90% rubber so I'm sure they're comfortable but so are 99% of shoes.

    In your case it's more that the shoes are hilarious than any concern over what they cost. You dress like someone's dad taking up skateboarding.

    Those things RL has posted are incredibly ugly, but they do look very comfortable and if your job involves being on your feet all the time that should definitely be the priority. Even at three hundred quid they'd probably be good value.

    I have twelve pairs of trainers, mostly Adidas that I rotate depending on what else I'm wearing. Three pairs of smart leather shoes, two for general wear and one for occasions, and a pair of work boots for use on dodgy ground.

    Those are a bit odd. I've only found one pair of trousers they don't look daft with.

    Post a picture of those bright orange trainers you own again? You literally have no idea how I dress considering I don't think I've posted a picture of myself that's me above the age of 23, about 7-8 years ago.

    Last time you posted a picture of yourself you looked like you'd raved yourself into an early grave but I'm not assuming you still look like that a decade later.
