Re: Ask a question, get an answer

Would really appreciate some sizing advice for two different shoes. I have relatively wide feet and wear US10 in chucks / UK9 in docs / US 10-10.5 in free flyknits. First shoes are the raf velcro highs (finally found some black ones) and the second ones are the KVA multilace high tops. I heard that ...

Re: What are you reading today/book club

Finished Camus' "The Stranger" and now I'm back to reading Max Frisch, currently it's "Stiller". Really enjoying this novel so far.

Re: things we wear to the supermarket

its funny that supermarkets are used a lot in fashion as a shorthand line of argument that dressing up is moot in this day and age. when confronted with rows and rows of cereal boxes, diet sodas, and dishwashing liquids, all fits are made absurd. supermarkets effectively make humans profane, as sup...

Re: Post Doc Martens or AF1s [shoe WAYWT]

http://i.imgur.com/zrz4ODEl.jpg I finally caved in and replaced my old and beaten running shoes, went to a serious running store and picked up these nike free 3.0 flyknits. I'm currently trying to run in them sockless and without the laces. They feel like socks and are really comfortable.

Went to a museum for applied art today, they had a exhibition about nordic fashion (faroe/greenland/island). http://i.imgur.com/CI3wBLYl.jpg I took a few more crappy pictures of the exhibition and the museum, people that like Dieter Rams would have enjoyed the rest of the museum, there were Braun pr...

Re: Opportunity Costs

@LandslideBaby Yeah, I mentioned them in the original post and I really like them also, but I kinda think that they might be a bit too flashy for me. Bright shine and golden serial number and all. I'm not sure if I want people staring at my feet all the time :D On top of that they're pretty much sol...

Re: Opportunity Costs

Thanks for the responses (smiling)

I'll probably get to check them out in store this weekend, but I'll take a careful look at them then.
I think it might be best if I save up for something like these APC derbies; I'll definitely will look at all your suggestions before doing anything.

I've been thinking about buying a pair of shoes like these COS ones: http://i.imgur.com/TBwWbsel.jpg Does anybody know if COS shoes are any good?
