of all the "upgraded" all-white low AF1 variations (prm, nikelab, jewel, flyknit, etc.), which is the most toebox-crease-resistant? that seems to be the main criterion for me in upgrading my AF1s, because i lost interest in my old ones for that reason (don't want warped toeboxes on sneakers i bought for their crispiness)

i guess flyknits would be the most obvious answer there but i'm gravitating more towards a leather version

does a budget low profile high top sneaker exist that is not sk8 his or converse? preferably in all black and in suede? canvas is ok too.

not looking for common projects or really any lux brands. I can probably be persuaded if the brand is not common projects though.

are suicokes comfortable? the ridges near the toes don't seem suuuuper comfy and the footbed pretty much looks like a pair of tevas. I guess the more relevant question is- are birkenstocks more comfortable?

To expand on my rep comment. My best friend's girlfriend has used them when she plays video games. I'm not sure if she still does but I know when she first got them she had good things to say. Are you on the computer for work? in that case I say just buy them and see how you like them. Write it off on your taxes. Worst case scenario you're out of some money. If I was on the computer that much out of necessity I would buy them.

Yeah, I'm on the computer 8 hrs a day for work and then I like to play some video games when I come home. I definitely think I'll give them a go - in the grand scheme of things they aren't that pricey and if they make my life nicer they're probably a good investment.

had this issue as well earlier this semester and it's slowly faded back away (haven't been bothered by it at all for a month or so) I think just because I started being a liiiiittle bit more exacting with my time and stopped reading Dostoyevsky on my phone at night. Speaking of which- I think computer screens are (per minute use) a lot less damaging than holding a phone screen up to your eyes late at night. Like, at times my phone would cause eye strain symptoms (crying, twitching) when my laptop screen wouldn't. It's ideal to reduce all sources of eye strain but I do think phone screens are a factor more problematic.

I also read about a type of physical exercise you can do to reduce eye strain which is -
the “20-20-20 rule” (which you’ve definitely heard about a thousand times but totally don’t do).
“Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds,” he says. While you do that, make sure to blink completely. You might look a little spacey, but your eyes should feel a lot better at the end of a long day.
via http://time.com/4789208/screens-computer-eye-strain/

Not sure if that can actually help you a lot but it sounds like (if you can't just reduce screen time somehow) you're in the business for it. I was definitely interested in glasses when I was having eye strain issues. Would also have given it a try.

I haven't tried that particular Salomon model but I have owned a few pairs and fund they fit tts but slightly wide. If you have a narrow foot, you could size down a half size.

How do you guys size Vans Vault vs. regular vans?

Re: Ask a question, get an answer

depends on the style

i'd say slips and authentics (og shape) fit maybe half a size-ish big because they have a wider toebox, so my rec is to size down half unless you have relatively wide feet

old skools and style 36s i went the same but they also fit slightly larger (in the toe at least) than the regular vans. but you can always lace them a little tighter and get a pretty good fit (as a bonus you'll have that hyukoh tight lace look going on)

What do I do to comfortably wear boots that are about a quarter size too big?
Put in some particular kind of soles?
They're mainly too big in like the roof of the front half of my foot.

Tying them really tightly almost sort of allows me to get away with it but ruins the shape and doesn't look very good for the leather

The English linear measure is the oldest shoe sizing system in the world. In 1324, King Edward II introduced the »size« as the standard English unit of shoe measure. One difference in size, also known as one barleycorn, measures 8.46 mm and corresponds to one-third of an inch (an inch is 2.54 cm). In order to achieve a better shoe fit, half-sizes (with a 4.23 mm difference between each consecutive half-size) were introduced in 1880.


So a quarter size is about 2.1mm.

what's the ideal length for carhartt carpenters? no break? cropped? enough for pool/stack? (thinking the 3rd for variety personally but open to cases for the other 2)

i'm for the no break/soft break school. cropped also acceptable. get them slightly oversized + shortest inseam possible then hot soak for shrink. i don't really like how carhartts pool generally, but it depends i guess. i'm very particular about my pooling.

Thoughts on sizing with regular chucks vs chucks 70's?

The only info I could find is that the 70's fit slightly wider in the toe box, does that sound right?

So should I size down .5 from regular chuck size?

(edit for clarification)

would anyone else here be able to compare sizing discrepancy between first release CT70s and the newer models? my first run pair i went half a size down; bought a pair of lows (2018 release i think, maybe 2017) and i sized the same way, but there's suddenly so much room in the toe (alongside some other tweaks i noticed). should i have gone a whole size down???? this is throwing me for a curve and i didn't get them at a retailer or anything so *shrug*

tryna find someone to trade to a 9.5 with but worst case i'll just keep them >_>

edit: this is funny to me as it follows the question two posts above this
