I'm off work today and went out to buy me some new shoes. mine are total crap, broken down pieces......you get the idea. I wanted a pair of tennis shoes and a pair of work shoes. looking at prices of shoes I know why mine are broken down. serious, the prices for shoes is awful. needles to say I got one pair of shoes today and will wait for the other pair next payday. Maybe I'm just a cheap SOB.

I hear ya. I've been wearing the same pair of work boots day in and day out for over a year and a half now. They're really starting to look it too.

 

We just got our tax refund so I need to junk these things and get a new pair of sneakers!!

See, I'm just the opposite. mine look good on the outside but the inside is broken down. I can't even buy those really good insoles to put into them anymore because the heel of the shoe is just broken down. I Practially feel everything the sole of the shoe steps on and when I buy those nice insoles they just last a month before they are torn up because of the inside of the shoe's being broken. I blame it on the concrete floors I'm on every day. And the inside back of the shoes, the materal is torn away and I'm wearing holes in socks left and right.

Yup, I got that going on too. The insides of the boots are a maroon/red color so every time I take the shoes off I got this red sh*t all over my socks. Freaked me out the first time I saw it cuz I thought it was blood! :yikes:

I refuse to pay more than $40 for sneakers. They must be heavily on sale. Shoes don't cost anymore to make than they did 20 years ago. I play tennis 3 times a week and burn through shoes really fast. I bought out my shoe and all I could fine because they discontinued it. $40 plus buy one get one half off plus 20%, I bought 7 pairs. Doen to 1 pair left, not sure what will happen after that. I burn through the bottoms, they still look good from the top.

 

They don't make them like they use to.

Everytime I check in here and see the What CD did you Buy This Week thread, I just don't want to believe that anyone in here is cheap. Or you people are just like me five years ago, refusing to buy anything that can be worn just to have money for CDs?

Remember the first Air Jordans? Wanted a pair back in junior high but my parents could'nt afford them. I believe they were $60 back then. Now thats alot of money. For most of my time growing up I had Traxx from Kmart. Anyone remember those?

Rivers is the best shop for clothes in Australia. I had not bought shoes in about 30 years but last year I bought 4 pairs on one day from this place - all $25 each. And now I never need to buy shoes again in this life. :)

I haven't had a new pair of shoes in a while. I probably need to shop for some, but I hate to spend the money. My most comfortable shoes are an old pair of Vans. I wear those to work. On my days off I wear a cheap pair of Hawks. Doing that seems to increase the life of my shoes.

Yeah, I remember those!! I used to work for Kmart. Talk about cheap sh*t shoes, Lordy. I used to buy their cheap sh*t work boots for $25 and within 90 days the soles would be worn completely flat :rofl2:

Yeah, I used to buy the cheap Walmart work boots, until I bought a pair of Timberlands for $125 dollars. Expensive, but i'm still wearing them.. :tumbsup:

Yeah, I had a pair of Timberlands that lasted me almost three years. Right now the pair I'm wearing is "Stanley" (as in the tool company) and I've had these for about two years, they're starting to look it too.

 

It might be nice to have a pair of nice lightweight sneakers on my feet again rather than these clodhoppers!!

    • Try the first 3...s/t , One Step Closer , Dance In The Fire...but they do have a couple of best of's...Decade I & II...as you say the studio albums contain filler but some good quality stuff also.
    • FOREIGNER’s MICK JONES issues statement: “Fans will have become very aware that for some time now, I have not been performing onstage with the band. A number of years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I want everyone to know that I am doing alright, however, l've always liked to be at my best when performing onstage, and sadly at present find that a bit difficult. I'm still very much involved in the background with Foreigner and remain a presence. Parkinson's is a daily struggle; several of my friends are also dealing with the disease. The important thing is to persevere with the loving support of my family, and remind myself of the wonderful career l've had in music. I thank all the fans who have supported Foreigner throughout the years and continue to attend our concerts. Please know I appreciate your support; it always means so very much to me, especially so at this point in my life.”
    • Does anyone have some recommendations on where to start with this band? It seems like every album I try listening to has some good songs but also a lot of filler...
    • Good news, I really like Confess :-)
    • Great band and they've been on fire since they got this vocalist but that's not a great choice for a single IMO. It just kind of meanders along.
    • Good call. He's a bloody good keyboard maestro let's be fair.
    • Vinyl only bonus tracks pisses me off. Why? A cd could fit the bonus tracks far easier. Jerks. I'm annoyed about that.
    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name (out April 19th). Tracklisting: 1. From The Start 2. Defiance 3. Feelin' Lucky 4. I Surrender 5. Forever In My Heart 6. Never Can Say Goodbye 7. One Heart 8. Give It Up 9. Nightswim 10. Standing Tall 11. Let’s See    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
