shoe collection thread
pic is not mine, found it on tumblr
my collection will never be that amazing ;_;
the guy has the fucking united arrows x red wing oxfords, woolrich x red wing 9002, both of the nigel cabourn collabs, plus those 2940s look amazing
you mean sneakers?
or do you mean like when fuccbois pull out their beat-to-shit nike runners for a collection pic even though they only wear them to the gym
that always makes me lel like nigga put those away those aren't for the fashion board lmaooo
Got some dark brown suede oxfords in the mail, probably gonna get some 1461s next.
Clark's DBs, cheap derbies, Allen Edmonds Clifton, Blazers, DIY experiment on H&M, Vans, Vans, Penguin. Black Clark's DBs on the way.
No, I don't include mine or my track spikes and work boots. They are not a part of my "fashion" attire, what say you, therefore, they don't necessarily belong on a fashion board.
finished with the conditioning/shining of my tricker's and grensons, and the new yuketen bluchers arrived in the mail, so it was time for an update
not at all
I don't include mine
this guy has a seriously impressive red wing collection
though I can't imagine liking Red Wing THAT much
unless their lasts just fit you really well maybe. or if you have huge toes
do you have nothing better to do than constant shitposting
you should save up and get something special tho
it's only one guy and he's been shitposting about this for days now
I think he wants that reaction from the board. I don't think he believes a word of what he's saying.
I know I don't speak for everyone who likes red wings and shit, but I actually think sneakers are pretty cool in general, and have spent more than a little time looking up sneakers and sneaker history and designer sneakers as well. I don't think other styles are less valid than mine, and nobody else should think that way either.
I wish I didn't feel the need to write all that out but there have been some really closed-minded workwear and prep faglords on this board recently, and they give all of us a bad name
I never said your entire collection has to be just Nikes and GATS. Likewise there is nothing wrong with having a few derby shoes or boots. Having a balance is what's important and understanding that there are different styles that people on this board go for.
exactly man. I'm not a big fan of the workwear style but I don't get asscrucified over people having a couple in their collection
No but you don't need to be ashamed of the things that you own. I understand if the only purpose those shoes serve for you are actual athletic activities but if you use them in everyday fits then there is no reason to not include them.
literally the only shoes I currently own
>sold all my other shoes just to afford
>tfw poor life living in a one room apartment
haven't broken them in enough yet to say
they still kinda hurt the backs of my feet
but that's because I've got a very big rotation right now so they don't get a lot of foot time
I might warn that they don't feel much like runners, though. between the leather insole, the steel shank, and the rubber sole, it feels more like wearing traditional footwear, minus the heel.
I sort of disagree about balance (can you tell?); I think having a balanced mentality is great. but I don't think your wardrobe needs to be balanced. you can commit fully to being whoever you want to be, but you should recognize and have some respect for a wide variety of styles in other people.
in other words, what you like for yourself doesn't have to be the only thing you appreciate. but you don't need to like everything for your own wardrobe.
red wing and danner x tanner goods
Current rotation for summer.
The only notable shoes are the grensons on the bottom row, margelia gat mids, and studded margelia lows
worn out CPs look dope dude, it's cool. make sure to choose your future cops wisely. I recommend buying a new pair of beaters as soon as possible. I'm currently just rotating CPs, NBs, and some birks and it's working out fine.
well now's the right time: woodlands has them on sale right now (8 and 9), and haberdash has the brown ones (9 and 11.5), also on sale
pretty solid shoes for the price; I wish I could tell you how they are when broken in, but I just don't know yet
I really need to get good dress shoes
Please, tell me about Silas.
I bought myself a pair, and I don't know if I did it right with the sizing.
I find the leg opening a bit large and don't know, if it should be so, however I can see it in DD's lookbook too.
Please, post picture of them on the leg from front and from side.
And also, do they squeak a little, or that will go eventually?
can u post a fit or a close up of the studded margielas.
theres a pair for cheap and im thinking about it
Yeah toothpaste works as well.
And I wear tons of different colors with them, usually I wear the same color (maybe a slightly different shade) for the top and bottom to go with them.
question for people that own expensive/high end fashion shoes:
do you guys all live in big cities? because I live in the outskirts of Boston and honestly I do not see the purpose of owning dick ovens if I'm not going to the city too often.
I would really dig a lot of their shoes if the branding was more subtle, or preferably nonexistent. Those hi-tops particularly were a huge diappointment when I saw the fuckhuge BJORNBORG lettering on the inner uppers.
I live in Switzerland and spend most of my time between my house and the uni campus. Occasionally I go to either Geneva or Lausanne which are relatively medium sized towns. I don't dress for other people though, but if a qt at uni creams herself because I'm wearing SLP sneakers than I won't complain
Here's mine. I'm a college student, so my money is prioritized toward my tuition. I don't have the money to just drop 500 bucks on one pair of shoes. But I try to look fashionable. Not a fuccboi; I wear what I like, and what I feel comfy in.
That's fine and all, but why post your shoes if you (rightly, probably,) don't spend your money buying any of note? Moreover, why are you posting at all on a fashion board when you don't into fashion?
They are made of pu.
The studs are rubber. The sole is.
All together its solid and ibe gotten tons of compliments.
Im out so heres a pic
Quality of first photo not great but thoughts on collection ? have some more but two pairs are getting resoled and ones at work
>all those square toes
>those fucking pointy toes on the right
>those blue suede abominations
>shoes on bed
I feel physically ill
All I own at the moment
Size 11UK doc martens
Some really fucked up janoski's
And a pair of sketchers
>one of each
it's not even close to that. mostly it looks like he's been picking up collabs, rare models, and a couple from the main line.
2007 is a collab with Burg & Schild.
4618 & 4619 are a collab with Nigel Cabourn.
8150 was exclusive to Red Wing Frankfurt and B-74.
4898 was a collab with the Japanese brand Beauty & Youth United Arrows.
The 8173 is a special indigo-dyed 8173 that was sold by Tenue des Nimes
8118 is an old design, AFAIK not frequently reissued. It was reissued for a Japanese store, SHIPS, a couple of years ago.
9002 is a Woolrich collaboration from 2008, no longer available.
9877 is a Japan exlusive that saw a very limited run in Europe last year.
2940 "Japan Specials" are also made mainly for Japan but were also released in Europe. They seem to be more widely available than the 9877
so half of them aren't easily available in the United States. not the same thing as just "buying one of each". more like collecting
How did you remove the black strip from your Jack Purcell sneakers?
I wish I picked up a pair of the studded GATs. Oh well.
They are so fucking comfy.
I really dig your balmains and guccis.
How are the guccis?
Went on a trip to Wyoming to visit family and do some radio work for the local rodeo
i only wear the lebrons for playing basketball, i was wearing my 1461 monos while taking the pic.
any suggestions for another hightop shoe?
>wearing shoes indoors
>mfw you're acting like girls about shoes and all I have are runners, that I actually run in lol, converse, boots, and dress shoes
And some Tevas that I'm wearing.
aaahahahaha he's jealous
bet this loser wears mall shoes and thinks he's "above" being a "fashion victim" whereas the truth is he is "below" the "poverty line"
and he looks like a fuccboi to boot
>spends 500$ on horsedick leather shoes-why do all nice grills go out with malltierpleb shoe wearing assholes ;_;
I remember when I was a kid in elementary school, if you disagreed with anyone they'd call you a "retard". "Shut up, you fucking retard!" Well that use has fallen out of fashion somewhat, because any kid knows how to say it, and it has been said to everyone for every kind of reason -- it's now clear that it carries no power, is totally meaningless.
Autism awareness has been on the rise, so we've all learned the new word for "retarded": "autistic". We're using it to mean the same thing, and with just as loose and broad a meaning.
And it has been happening long enough that it's going the same way as "retard": nobody takes it seriously. And those who still use it sound like frustrated and impotent children.
It's okay to wear horsedick leather shoes if you are above 30,anything younger than that is just plain fedoracore
I thought your point was that not having sneakers means you're sedentary. if that wasn't your point, then you don't have one; dismissing all styles that don't involve sneakers as being a fedora thing is not convincing to anybody. besides, when have you EVER seen a fedora meme picture where the stereotypical fedora lover is wearing expensive menswear? even in the one you posted, he's wearing sandals. The truth is that fedoracore usually involves sandals or sneakers. so you're full of shit. you're just using the meme to mean "interested in something outdated" which isn't inherently a bad thing.
you are a child buing horsedick leather shoes with your parents money,you do not have the age nor experience to pull off the mythical menswear.I like the initiative trying to be smart and intelligent(and euphoric) but with your age,it just looks stupid and weird.
inb4 nigger poorfag you know nothing about style go buy AF1..
>smart and intelligent
I wasn't going to call you poor or a nigger
liking menswear doesn't necessitate being elitist or racist
if I have any problem with you, it's that you have the same narrow-mindedness as a guy who dismisses sneaker fans as "niggers" and "poorfags". you're the same shit, but on the other side.
inb4 you call me euphoric again.
trolls aren't what they use to be
Wait, people actually have more than 2 pairs of shoes?
im not a nigger nor poor,the thing is,we want all of you menswear people to go back to mfa and leave /fa/ just as it was two months ago.There you will recieve peace,love and understanding.
don't you marks remember 2011 fa where streetwear got laughed at and everyone did menswear and business casual? back when it was college students, adults, and not autistic 16 year old marks?
youre a fucking idiot if you think the demographics of /fa/ was different back then. everyone had an autistic hateboner for streetwear and fast fashion bullshit like h&m was the only thing discussed and no one knew shit about actual fashion. this was when people actually took fucking INFOGRAPHICS seriously. as if anyone but le classy born in the wrong generation 16 year old from /v/ would take an infographic fucking seriously
Go back to hypebeast you ape,we have taken over /fa/
AUTISMBOT 5000 HAS BEEN INITIATED
Figured this was a relevant thread to post in.
Looking to cop some new brogues/oxfords. Don't want to drop $750 on this pair of Gucci - more so because I don't wear them enough to justify the cost.
Anybody care to recommend a brogue/oxford/wingtip with a similar low profile to these honeys? I'm from the States and hoping to keep the price around $250.
Top left are fratelli Borgiolis from 2013.
Top middle I honestly don't know, other than being Italian. Since they have vero cuoio stamped on them. I bought them together with a suit.
for work, I want some shoes that are NOT high in the heels
I have Achilles problems
BUT I also want some height, since im manlet
nice dress shoes, kind of flat but with a lift
Gifted Navy Seal jump boots
Johnston and Murphy suede
Chuck Taylors leather
I think Prada Creepers? well these, + an insole.
this was in 2008. It's a lot more monochrome now.
so do you see high end shoes as a way to show off?
trunks lived in a shithole on vancouver island and dressed in ann d
i think most ppl willing to spend that much on shoes would prolly wear them for the aesthetic value
These shoes are making me feel nauseous.
Do you not fucking think when you buy a shoe? If I walked into your house and saw these shoes I'd think you're just a pleb.
You could have avoided all of these shitty cops if you'd learn to look at an item and think "what will this do for my outfits?" beforehand.
AE strands on the way. Need to step up my sneaker game tho
Need suggestions for some black shoes that aren't sneakers. What should I get next? Because I'm not gonna walk around in docs 24/7
It's not so much that your collection is shit, it's that you could easily have a better, smaller collection for the same price.
Add to that the fact that you are super defensive right from the start, insulting anyone who has an interest in fashion (on a fashion board).
I don't have any good shoes /fa/. Could someone recommend me a good shoe? I usually just wear regular blue jeans and t-shirts. Would prefer something not really athletic. I'm just so new I'm not sure.
alden roy boot
you'll only regret it if you're poor or too stupid to figure out the right size
