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?

anyone tried the pixel/computer glass shits? i am now looking at a screen for ~14 hours a day and recently my eye started twitches and my eyes feel sore - I assume due to lack of sleep (working on it) and staring at the screens so much. i have f.lux installed on my home pc for at night which is aight but for the day I could probably help myself out more. would love to hear some testimonials from yall

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.

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.
