Certainly, they tend to outlast my clothes

I just found my dream shoes on special i'm buying next week. Think of knock off Doc martens, but they are actually leather, stitched and such, not glued and fake. The Doc Martens at my local outlet factory are a tad expensive for me. But anyway, at least i get a choice of black or red! I've never had boot boots before

Most important are a good haircut and nice shoes.

I'm obsessed with shoes. My favorite brand is Keen, but I'm currently looking for navy blue Converse One Stars. I have an old pair of black and white checkered vans around here somewhere. I have a pair of Rocketdog leather velcro shoes right now that I wear all the time, and a pair of Keen sneakers, and I pretty much switch between the two. I love "odd" looking shoes and I get comments on them all the time by people who love them.

Dragoriana - i aint had any doc martins for years, when you say red i assume you mean cherry reds? they are cool, and very punk!

SwampWitch - i dont have much hair to cut, its all shaved right down! but i know what you mean, on a girl cool hair and shoes is good, can make or break it for me.

kara_leigh - im into skater trainers at the min, but i do like a good pair or nike airs.

i have quite small feet for a guy really, size 7, and that whole big feet, big you know what thing...... not always so

small shoes always look better!

I actually do kind of agree... new shoes can make an old outfit look and feel new again!

Vans are great shoes, but I am an Etnies girl myself. I have ALOT of them! I love skate shoes in general. I like the way they feel, the way they look on your feet, and there is nothing better looking IMPO then a pair of long jeans and skate shoes!

Agree!
I just bought myself a new pair of Merrells and I love them! Even though they're just shoes (and low cut hiking shoes at that http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/sto...rom=SR&feat=sr ) they're so comfortable that they make me feel great when I put them on..and they look really nice with jeans!

I'm always trying to buy my son skater shoes, but my hubby won't let me b/c he says they are conducive to running and playing in school. lol All of my boyfriends were skaters when I was in high school. My husband is only the second of my boyfriends that weren't.

I agree!!!

But then, I'm the woman who's husband had to implement an inventory-neutral shoe policy. Every time I get a new pair, an old one has to go.

I grew up really poor, and so I almost never got new shoes or jackets. And I never got a new watch until I bought one myself when I was 16.

Needless to say, I have a closet full of shoes and jackets, and a drawer full of watches.

I love new socks also. When I was younger and dumb and didn't care anything about money I wouldn't wear socks long enough to lose the "new sock" feeling. I would constantly go out and buy new socks. lol

mate i totally know what your saying, everything i wanted when i was young and didnt have i have bought since. shoes and jackets were usually hand me downs for me, and bikes were the same too.

i always wanted loads of lego, and a scrambler/trial bike, and when i was 17 i wanted a really fast mini to drive around in.

so now i too have loads of shoes, plenty coats, mountain bikes and just bought a BMX, i bought a scrambler a few years ago and it was huge it scared me to death, 562cc! i have lego models in my spare room, and i have had so many fast minis now i have lost count!

now im wondering why i would want to have a missis, i get to blow all my money on my toys

LOL I rarely buy new socks...so that new sock feeling is just the best feeling ever! BUT the few times I DO buy socks I make sure to spend the money on good socks that will last.

I own two pair of shoes. Didn't know they had so many holes in the soles until we got our bad weather Shoes are at the top of the list after I make sure Seb is stable. Then, maybe some new shirts. I am a dreamer

I have to be much pickier with shoes now. Need something that not only won't hurt my feet but is good for them.

I am a shopaholic when it comes to shoes. I have honestly over 100 pairs in a closet. I love my shoes. And out of all those shoes I only own one pair of runners.http://i3.iofferphoto.com/img/item/3...3994720773.jpg

The rest of my shoes are pumps, wedges, espadrilles, boots and flats

Wow, two pairs of shoes!! Sometimes I feel I would like to minimize my wardrobe, but the feeling doesn't last long.
I agree that good quality shoes are a must! I wear orthotics and have come to appreciate well made shoes.
Buying a one good quality pair that will last you is much more economically sensible than a bunch of cheap shoes that wear out quickly and don't support your feet properly.

I love buying new shoes I just bought some really comfy shoes this weekend, they're so light. And right now I'm shopping for some stilettos for the pole fitness class I'm going to be taking. (No, I'm not a stripper )

I am a super huge fan of DC shoes...prolly too much of a fan because they give you a sticker with the DC logo on it when you buy a pair & I put it on the back of my SUV next to my license plate...I probably shouldn't have defaced my car like that but oh well now I need to get another pair so that I have a sticker for the other side of the plate

Having new socks is like having new underwear, or a new bra. It's not something you buy often, but when you do, you feel complete well, i know i do
