My brother got a pair of Jordans the original Jordan 1 but blue with black, and I bought a pair of Jordan 9's loved how they looked but the most uncomfortable bball shoe I ever owned surprisingly. That was it always wanted to get them but didn't have the $, and after the bad 9's experience I didnt bother.

Good question, the answer of course is a different pair/type every day of the week.
Right now I have on a pair of Cole Haan casual office 'shoes'. Zero logos, simple color scheme, high quality construction. Perfect for not playing basketball.

What brand and what style?

Oh, I just looked at your profile and it seems you still read comic books. Wouldn't some say that a grown man reading comic books is the type who lives in his mom's basement and is still a virgin?

Yesterday (or 2 days ago?) it was a pair of Dr Martens casual shoes, unique style from london that I got in 2010. Hard to describe them other than, out of the norm for most Dr. Marten styles, casual (not for Weddings/funerals), but not suitable for dunking.

Don't be upset, lots of guys go through that phase of dressing like a college kid 10+ years too late. Usually a girlfriend, or job corrects the issue with mandatory wardrobe updates.

I'd still be in cargo cut off shorts, trail runners and a concert t-shirt without female intervention.

Another sure fire test is stand next to a 13 year old in the mall. Whatever you are wearing that matches what he is wearing, donate it to charity.

Or flip it on Ebay.

When I picture a grown man wearing Doc Martens, I picture a man in a heavy metal band wearing arse less leather pants, high on acid, and having a dog collar around their neck but yet your a grown man who still reads comics. Some would say a grown man still reading comics is a sexually frustrated individual who gets off on female comic hero's breasts. It's alright though. One day it will happen for you.

You can probably make more money flipping burgers.

Sven looks like he made a wrong turn from check out my kindle book I'm a published author my webbook is titled "shoes make the man" and somehow landed in the VGF insulting Jawwaad one of our best contributors.

Run along Sven, and don't forget your clogs.

Wait, someone who posts a thread about making money flipping sneakers is one of the VGF's "best contributors"?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 3:25:40 PM PST
No, but Jawwaad has constantly linked us helpful deals on video games, and as far as I'm concerned he's an extremely cool guy.

Yes, I am a grown man.
No I'm not in a metal band.
Your fixation on reading comics as some sort of badge of shame only continues to highlight your insecurities. The idea of "haha only nerds read comics" kinda died in 1997.

Sorry I tried to help, but you can continue on dressing like a 13 year old mall kid.

Why so shy about the "should I wear basketball sneakers all the time" profiling test?

Wait, I should be ashamed for not wearing basketball sneakers to an office job? You guys are the best.

You shouldn't. I have no problem with you wearing Doc Martins. You have a problem with me wearing basketball shoes. I don't have a office job. I work at a HVAC company and Target 2 days a week. You feel all high and mighty because you wear Doc Martins (which is the number one shoe of skinheads and punk rockers). I have no problem with you reading comics but you equate wearing basketball shoes with 13 year olds and I can say some equate reading comics with virgins and 13 year olds.

Jawwaad chill man, he's harmless, he's just trolling for dollars. You have two jobs man, dang how do you have time to find us all these great deals ? Do you have an assistant ? A flipping twin brother ! I knew it ! Cheater !

Target tho, why Target ? Isn't that boring ? Everythings red and white and always busy. I should get a second job. I've already put a grand on my PS card on vet bills and food.

Whoa. I was just ordering shoes and this topic comes up...strange.

I got these: ASICS Men's GEL-Foundation Walking Shoe

They look nice and comfy.

for my office job, i either wear sneakers (the afformentoned Chucks) or, more often, XtraTuf 15" neoprene boots (locally known as "Alaska business casual").

Hey Moulton, I know he's a troll but he seems harmless. I chose Target because it was easy to get a job there. I only work there 2 nights a week but it's a good extra income for buying my wants, not needs. It's not that bad though as I have some great fellow team members.

I don't think I am better than anyone. I was just poking fun of wearing basketball sneakers while not playing basketball, and it got out of hand.

I was just more poking fun at all the middle aged guys I see around who dress exactly like their 13 year old sons. Here in Cali, wearing basketball shorts, flip flops and a tank top is pretty common "going out to dinner wear"

Dr. Martens actually started as a blue collar work shoe. And while I worked plenty of blue collar jobs, wearing them now clearly makes me a poser.

Although I will admit that a few years ago I had some nike "athletic ATG or something sandals" i bought for the beach and my friends made fun of me nonstop for being a "Teva Hippie Sandal guy".

Yes, I am a grown man who reads comics. But unfortunately I am not a virgin and don't live at my mom's (RIP). If I were still a virgin, I could probably sell it on eBay and get on talk shows.

*note Timbalands, Ughs, Crocs and 5 Finger shoes are fair game.

See Sven is chill, he was just bored.

Cool, thanks Jawwaad.

Rev Otter you're in Alaska ? Cool, love to visit there but I can barely stand how cold it is in Cali, lol.

Do you see my hot girlfriend Sarah Palin walking around town ?

If you look at the first post I made, it had nothing to do with Jawwaad, nor was it directed to him or anyone in specific.

But this whole thing proves 2 things.
