For all the Nikeheads: when you can't find a shoe in your size, do you usually go a half size big or small?

    Yeah, but then you face that upturned elf shoe syndrome. Hard call, dude.

    i usually go smaller but thats probably because i rarely ever tie my shoes

    too big shoes that you have to tie too tight is a really terrible look

    Half bigger, but only on the ones for winter and fall so I can comfortably add an extra sock layer to fill in the difference.

    black denim shorts
    knights of the round table polos
    denim button downs
    looney tunes tattoos
    dave matthews
    di giorno pizzas
    unwarranted confidence

    Please to rec some decent online places to buy. I got a pair of nice Adidas from Harputs but there must be better places? (BTW they were ZXZ-Nylons, Blue on Blue) I also wish they'd let you just type in your size and they just show you what they have that would fit, give or take a size.

    BTW is it me or is 99% of everything made after 1990 suck big time? I am loving the mid-80's styles, just good design with no gaudy shit. Would also love to see a pair of original New Balance 990's (did they have refelctive N's and tabs?) - the re-issues are so

    if you have wider feet, go 1/2 size bigger, narrow feet 1/2 smaller.

    Going bigger can result in the Breadfoot Syndrome. No-one likes to see that.

    My man here at work just sold a pair of the sample-only Beastie Boys Superstars for ??3000 to a collector.
    I think it's time I cleared out the hyperstrike and affiliated collection...

    By the way and I know this should prolly go to the wants section, but can any of you NY cats hook me up with them 11.5 size Air Force Harlem's plaese? Not trying to pay $250 for them though...

    Stabs are ill, but you have to change the laces. They look 100x better with orange or black instead of the olive ones they come with.

  • I picked up a pair of Air More Tempos last weekend.

    Anyone know why they changed the name from Air More Up[/b]tempo to Air More Tempo for the re-realease.

    I've been feeling these Adidas shoes. Although i'm so used to wearing my Dunk premiums, that these look tiny on my feet (esp. cuz they're soccer shoes):


    Samoa. I tried these and i liked it 'em, except for one minor gripe...i wasn't feeling the line down the middle of the toe area.

    Suede Kick. Liked 'em very much, but i had a similar colorway so i passed.

    Beckenbauer. Have yet to try these, but i've been eyeing these for a while.

    right now i'm leaning towards the Samoa though.
