New kicks

Postby Drew Corleone on Fri May 06, 2005 1:54 pm

Yesterday I bought new sneakers for the first time since, I want to say, 1999.

I think I want to start wearing them more. I disdain wearing sicks, but I bought a bunch of those sub-ankle socks to wear for softball, so it's almost like you're not wearing them anyway.

It's weird seeing clean shoes on my feet.

Wait, didn't you also ruin your "Lacoste" shirts this week?

So we have Izod shirts and topsiders......are you currently auditioning for Fox's second attempt at "That 80's Show"!!??!!

No I don't have IZOD shirts. I have Lacoste shirts. :D
And what is wrong with the topsiders?

Nothing, I'd bet good money Chevy Chase is wearing a pair in your avatar........unfortunately, all we can see his his pink Lacoste shirt and Members Only jacket.

:D

p.s. Izod = Lacoste

I know Izod used to be the gator, but they are in no way related now. Topsiders have a bad rap I guess. They are super comfy, and you don't have to wear socks of tie them. They are the perfect sloth shoe.

I know, some of my friends give me shit for wearing them. I was just giving you the same reasons I give them for wearing them.

I wear my shoes so long that my mom finally gets tired of seeing me wear the same pathetic pair home and buys me new ones at the nearest holiday. She usually gets my sis to pick them out, and she has good taste. Thanks to my sis, I can also depend on my mom for QUALITY clothes every Christmas/birthday too. It's a nice luxury.

I'll go buy a new pair of tennis shoes and wait 5-6 months before I ever wear them for the 1st time. Weird!

Currently, I wear Etnies, a skateboarder tennis shoe. They are one of the most comfortable tennis shoes I've ever owned. They last a long time too.

The other day I was trying to remember who it was that said I was the poster child for fratty.net. Thanks for reminding me Matt.

I think I gave him more shit for croakies than anything else.

I went to a HS baseball game the other day with my brother. Almost every HS kid at the game had on topsiders.

I was a trendsetter I tell ya!

I love my Puma California's. I have about 6 pairs right now but they are getting harder to find.

I've been buying Mizuno brand running shoes lately as far as sneakers go.

I Love them.

I used to buy Asiacs but they changed something in the fit that caused me to get blisters on the insides of my heels.

I wont' buy anything Nike b/c of tiger woods.

Odd, considering that the only entity who has cheated more than Tiger is OU - and yet you continue to support their cause.

Speaking of... Went to the Puma store yesterday, and couldn't decide on a pair, so I got two.
