    Who doesn't love a cool pair of kicks? This is a thread to show off what kind of sneakers you wear! (any shoes are welcome but preferably sneakers) Me, I wear black Converse Chuck Taylor high tops. I fell in love with these shoes 7th grade year and been wearing them ever since, best shoes I know of for driving. Sucks I can't wear them in the winter, but I have a pair of leather Nikes for that, will post a pic of those later. For now, here is a pair of my black high tops, one of several pairs I have.

    I wear chucks while riding my motorcycle..I dont tie my DC's, so its a bitch to ride in them. Rarely wear work boots to work. I picked up a super comfy pair of wolverene wellington style boot..Wear them daily. Have a nice pair of new balance for gym time.

    Then, I have the assortment of hunting boots (rubber insualted,Muck boots, and regular tie up wolverene boots).

    Finally, I have a pair of Rocky boots used for when I ride the brush truck on fires. The most basic, un-insulated logger boot ever made, which again, I could wear all day.

    Haha, I don't think anyone is too old to wear Converse, one of my professors wears them and hes gotta be in his mid to late 40s. My drawing professor last year wore them as well, and he was likely in his 50s. All comes down to personal preference I guess, I wear them because they are comfy, affordable, and look really cool. They go with virtually anything.:)

    I sometimes wear my chucks on the Harley, but only around town. Wouldn't want to be wearing them at highway speeds if I laid it down. Got a good pair of White boots for riding though. DC's are good shoes, I had a pair of those that lasted about 3 years.

    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.

    Holy shit they look like they've been worn for years haha. I understand though how hard construction is, I destroyed a pair of DC skate shoes working concrete few summers back.
