I need to buy new shows.

I last bought a pair of shoes when I was 18 so that makes my current lot around 5 years old bar my work boots that I find myself wearing most days now.

I used to favour skating nikes but I've grown to see them as a bit manchildish, my stepbrothers all wear brogues but they're cunts so I don't want to appear to be immitating them. I work with them sometimes and I see them most weeks.

I really have no clue what I like shoe-wise anymore, could you show me what you wear and what decent 'middle of the road' shoes are nowadays?

Can't go wrong with desert boots.

And buy shoes more often, jesus christ.

Apologies for the typo I didn't notice that.

Thanks, they look nice. I stopped having money from then until now so I'm doing my best.

Don't get desert boots, they have surface like chamois leather which a complete bastard to keep clean because it stains. Get something in that sort of style with actual leather that you can polish, then polish them regularly. Once a month is probably more than enough. If you actually take care of your shoes then it's not unusual for them to last five years or more, there's no need to fall into >>5313's capitalist culture of planned obsolescence.

Yeah, a pair of shoes can last more than five years, but if all your shoes are at least five years old, you are a scruffy wee bastard.

Doc Martens barely look worn after 5 years.

At least they do if you're a shut in who never goes outside and spends all his time in a POSIX shell.

My best shoes are a pair of Cheaney wingtips, they've had five resoles and still look very tidy. As long as they're kept properly polished and away from road salt, good shoes will last a lifetime. My winter boots don't last nearly as well, although they would if I wasn't too vain to wear galoshes.

Felt gets dirty too easily. It will look really old when it isn't as old. It pisses me off.

Also the white sole will stain fairly quickly over winter. Converse All-Stars seem to be like jeans, in that they look better when they're a bit battered.

I always find them dreadfully uncomfortable, but Vans Eras are equally muted and presentable. They're essentially the Vans Authentic with some padding around the ankle to make them ten times comfier.

My feet smell. I guess I need to stop wearing the same pair of socks for a whole week.

Anyway, I've had a pair of Nike Air Force 1s for a year, and I don't think I like them. I wore my older trainers today. They were a pair of those Adidas skater type trainers. Very comfy, light-weight and discreet. The AF1s are heavy and it feels like they suffocate my feet.

Maybe you lads could recommend something discreet, comfy and light.

I hate shopping. All those choices, and the thought of regretting what I buy means I will become frozen and indecisive. A little anxious too. So I usually buy online, but shoes are a cunt to buy online since an Adidas size 8 aren't the same as Nike size 8. Absolute bollocks.

For a casual shoe, I'd personally always go for the type of vaguely trainer-styled shoes that are sufficiently distanced from actual trainers that you'd never do any actual sport in them and probably wouldn't be barred entry to a club for wearing them. Pic related for example, they're similar to what I wear.
