Sh-sh-sh-shoes

I'm thinking about selling a pair of two of my high-tops and buyinganother pair of low-profile sneakers. If you were my feet, which would you like to live in the most?

1) Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81s
2) Saucony Bullets
3) Vans Authentics

I'd go for option 1 or 2. Option 3 looks too much like keds.

I agree although I'm a big fan of van's.

#1 absolutely.

Spice said...

1 or 2 - I'm leaning toward 2 because it has a little color. It's sort of the middle ground between 1 and 3.

I like #2 the best.

#3 is far too Gilligan.
#1 is far too nondescript.

#2 has style without being overstated or calling too much attention to itself. It says "I rock and I know it...and the rest of you styleless wonders will figure it out soon enough."

:D

Yeah, on further consideration, I'm jumping on the #2 bandwagon.

I think #2 is the hardest pair to wear - #1 is so neutral that it goes with black jeans, indigo jeans, or cords, and #3 is so out there that it goes with all of those too. I feel like #2 has just enough red that I'd feel self-conscious wearing it with, say, a yellow shirt - but at the same time, I'm not Captain Match-my-shoes.

Go for #2! That way it would match your pants no matter whether they were white, gray, *or* red!

I believe I am the only person in the world voting for contestant #3. SO CUTE! And only a true man, like yourself, could pull those off.

JPo - those may actually be my secret favorite. Sockless with pants rolled just to my ankles - that's a killer look for drinking beers on the UW terrace. I'm drinking beers on the terrace tomorrow afternoon - maybe I should try to find a pair in Madison tonight and rock 'em at Spice's going-away shindig.
