Don't you just love the feeling of buying new shoes? I always get so excited when I buy new shoes. I just ordered some online.

Check them out: My New Shoes (http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Clearance/Shoes/Draven-Turquoise-Zebra-Striped-HighTop-Sneakers-343584.jsp)

Tell me what you think. I personally can't wait the 5-7 business days it will take for them to get here.

They almost look like they are for girls >.> *hides*

These are my shoes, I recently bought in the US for $35

No I am not a skater XD Though I tend to wear surfer ware it seems, as well as small business clothing such as Mission Playground and some outdoor clothing. Mission Playground not only uses organic cotton, but is made in America.

EDIT: Actually, after looking at the whole selection of shoes on that site, I have to say, I don't like any of them >.> And they look like they are all sneakers.

I hate new shoes. They're always uncomfortable and hard to get on. I like just being able to walk into them and go (I tie off the laces so they can't slip out the holes and leave them untied, usually; it's faster that way).

I hate having to buy new shoes...particularly because they cost money that I could be spending on video games. XD

OMG!

Just a few days ago I got some smexy black Converse sneakers! <3

Though when one is younger, I always found it funny how the "cool" kids would wear sneakers at recess in the snow. Like they wanted to freeze their toes off.

Nowadays I just go with comfy and sleek I guess. I had a pair of light hikers when I was in Australia, boy did I use those to death.

It's too bad however, that most shoe companies outsource their shoe making to China or equivalent, resulting in the not so best of quality.

Buying new shoes is a love hate relationship for me, reason being... I'm really picky. :x But at the end of the day, I usually end up with a pair that can last a year and also look good. Currently wearing some nice beige and blue New Balance. :D

Not a fan of the patterns.. XD; But whatever floats your boat.

As for me, shoes.. I didn't really care about shoes, until I started looking at boots. <3

Any other shoe is a meh for me, but I love looking at boots. XD; I'd buy heaps of boots if I could. :x I guess because they remind me of anime for some reason. Or because boots that are black look nice. But either than that, I only adore boots. Any other shoes don't fascinate me. Though I do like pretty heels that have ribbons on them...

Boots are yummiful. <3 I wear boots more than shoes, even in summer.

I only have like two pairs of shoes, that I don't use for school. I normally get new ones when I grow out of them or when they rip. I don't like buying new shoes, my mum always makes me try every pair she sees and she can't tell if they're for male or female.

Half the time she gets a pair I'm like "Mum the label says female."

I don't have all that many shoes for a girl, and only one or two pairs of high heels. xD;

I guess I like new shoes, but I prefer to wear just one pair of trainers all the time. Converse, but they look like classic Vans.

I enjoy buying my shoes, but not the first couple days of working them in. :(

Yeah. I got mine for like $30.48.

I don't tie my shoes usually. I just slip on all my sneakers.

I haven't gotten a new pair of shoes for like a year and a half basically.

My parents let me buy whatever I want, as long as I am happy with it. I literally just showed my dad the picture on the website and then he gave me more than enough money to load onto my debit card so I could purchase them.

Vans are next on my list. I need some actual skating shoes. I skate a little, but I suck... so I need lots of practice.

I actually don't really notice breaking them in. >.> Except my work shoes. It's been like three months almost, and I still haven't broken them in.

Three months? Usually with good shoes, you don't have to 'break them in' (apparently this is a fallacy). Needless to say, if they still feel awkward or uncomfortable after three months, then they might not be the best work ware for you.

I'm getting those tomorrow while I go shopping early for back to school stuff before everyone else comes in and takes everything. I love getting new shoes all the time

They look nifty. I hate shopping especially for shoes but I do love my high heels. I mainly wear heels.

I got a brand new Nike the other day. I kinda ruined it already, but it's okay. The shoe smell is still there. :)

Those are some neat sneakers, Tatsujin.

Ew Hot Topic? Thanks for "ew"ing my style.

I don't have a choice of what shoes to wear at work. And I think they may be broken in... it's just the fact that I am standing in the same spot for hours at a time.

Yeah standing in the same spot, is the most likely cause. It is the onset of varicose veins.

I go through shoes quick, I'm slightly pigeon toed so after about 3 months my shoes are full of holes and extremely worn out. And i hate new shoes! More accurately I hat shopping for them! I just want to get a pair of shes and leave but OH no! I have to look at EVERYTHING first. And then i get to sit around while my mom and sister shop.

Once broken in, new shoes are great.

Hopefully, I can get a new pair of Nike's before the start of next week.

I've got my '98 Army paratrooper boots three years ago. Haven't bought a new pair of shoes since. It'd be unnecessary considering that they're so well-built they'll last longer than me.

Ugh, I actually dislike getting new shoes. They're uncomfortable and I hate having to try stuff on. XD;

When you have your own money to spend on shoes, it makes it that more personal and favourable to get (dunno I had a better word choice in mind, but forgot).

I got some running shoes recently that help to prevent pronating, so that'll be good for me.

Well I don't like getting shoes with my money, since it's a necessity and my parents should pay for necessities.

I meant for more if you have a job or something like that ;) (though I realize some of you are not 14-16, whatever the minimum working age is).

Though I've been spending too much on blu rays XD
