I was just wondering what people have bought recently. just to get an idea what people are into n stuff.

I recently bought some nike hikers.

Image

they were on sale and i liked the style. they are light weight and keep clean in nyc streets. well they look clean-good thing with blk shoes. i love the sole. it has a great design very nice what they did with the lugs, not so broing as in other hikers. nike (ACG) has been working with vibram for there soles-I think vibram has helped them out alot.

and also got these back home-a lil christmas gift to myself. they are older, still a very hot style. I really dont wear bright green, but made some exceptions.

they are very comfortable-took a day or two to get used to the arch support. the one thing is that the outsole (profile) could be better. it looks too blah. the air bubble holes look and are positioned fine, but the cuts i dont think are deep enough maybe just a 1-2mm deeper and the side would look a lil more dynamic,
they were also affordible.

kinda sukks-and is wierd that depending on where u like in the us you will get different color styles of shoes-anyone else notice tht-will post example.

cool

I recently got these:

What do you think.. also bought on sale, and because i badly needed new ones, my old Duffs were literally falling apart. Anyway I got them really cheap because they were an odd sized pair (I happen to have one foot bigger than the other.. a good thing in this case).
They are good and comfortable.. with nice cushioning in the heel and ball of the foot. The thing I like about this is that it's firmer than in most kicks I have had, which feels to me like its giving more effective support.

I don,t have that much money, so I don't buy shoes very often, but my last buy was the Wings & Waffles edition of the Air Huarache

Image

I love how the upper looks and I thought it would be a really comfy summer shoe.
On the downside, there is one thing I have come to dislike about the design. The back portion of the midsole is huge. I think they could have done something less plain with the midsole and the outsole, but overall the shoe feels great.

These are the newest shoes i got...the lebron 2's are pimp! theyre based off a bullet proof vest. the nike shox classic are awesome too! old school look with new school technology make a gorgeous combo! i'm surprised there was not much talk on these, these are an instant classic IMO. i had to get the air force 1 whi/obsidean for its classic style and thefinishline.com has air zoom generations for only 49.99 (black only) since i got the 2nd lebron i had to get the 1st! no more shoe buying for me though until the air jordan XIII white/navy and flint drop out this march!

hmm-image? what are the names of them? what is the link to the site where we can see? I have never bought from niketown.com. how long did it take to get your purchase? I wish that they had a mens catolog like how they have a womens catolog.
