You are the first person out of about 10 that has said something negative about Shox. However, I appreciate your input.

My best pair of shoes were vans on clearance for $10 and they went through skating, biking, jogging and working on cars for 2 years. Cant beat that. But when it comes down to it steel toe boots beats all. You dont realize the times you need them until you own a pair.
They will also cause flat feet. I wore Van's when I was like 15. I need something that will help my knees, and I'm going to put more hope in some good running shoes, as compared to skate shoes. However, thank you for your feedback.

So, I received my Shox in the mail today, and they're not going to cut it. They're not wide enough, although I ordered them in 'wide'. Like I said, I'm a big guy, and finding a decent pair of shoes is tough. I can't even order a 'custom' pair and expect them to fit.

i got the dark knight kobe zoom v's they were 200 bucks, kinda uncomfortable for lik the first 2-3 days but then they fit like a glove after that and so light it feels like your not even really wearing sneakers

But a true champion, face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies- kenny powers

Are these $100+ shoes really worth the price? Do they typically last longer than cheaper shoes? Are they more comfortable? I don't run, but I want some comfortable shoes for the rare occasion that I do get off my ass.
Only for running IMO. My only other $100 plus shoes are my favorite boots. I love the name of this thread.

Well, I have a pair 0f 125$ D&G moon boots. A pair of 100$ Zigi Soho boots. A pair of these sweet cowgirl boots, and my livestrong shoes are the only ones over 100$.

Most of the heels I have are from 35-65$ then like a few pair of Mocks, then a buttload of Old Navy flip flops which I wear more then anything.

To answer your question, I think it is completly okay to purchase the shoes especially since they are for running. Most of the cheaper heels, and running shoes I have gotten either break off at points, or I get blisters, and deal with discomfort. Well more discomfort.

Most I ever spent on shoes was probably 70 dollars. Anything beyond that is absurd imo.

I spend $160 on some shoes today. They should be in the mail sometime this week. They're the Nike Air Max + 2009's.

I don't know what's got into me but since 2 years everywhere I go I wear classic black shoes.
Look pretty much like this.



I usually buy them when there are sales, it cost me around 60-100 euro's. They last much longer than basic or sport shoes and I buy them when it's really necessary .

Well, I'm not trying to single anyone out, but generally, I think Europeans are a bit more 'sophisticated' than Americans. Unless always wearing a suit or something, I couldn't imagine any American wearing those out just anywhere.

It's not Europeans it's just me, I think I am the only one who wears classic shoes that often.

In general there is not a lot of difference how people dress here(Belgium) and in USA. I think that many times we copy American styles thanks to the media.


By the videos and images I see I think y'all wearing more sports clothes than we do.
