Toms are pretty bad shoes....

 

My theory is that you can spend money on shoes that you know will last for a long time. Since your feet generally stop growing once you get older, you only buy new shoes when the ones that you have wear out. Spend the money on the shoes that will last longer.

I love my toms, but they're not great in cold weather, I basically consider them a closed toe sandal.Personally if your not interesting in a specific shoe, I'd simply recommend having a field in a shoe department somewhere just trying on a bunch of different styles that interest you to see what you like.

if you're talking about boots or formal shoes, i agree

 

but if it's just sneakers, get as many different ones for cheap and that's fine. easier to mix and match with clothes.

 

maybe sperry topsiders? they're $70-90 though

Even when it comes to casual shoes you're better off spending a little bit than a lot in the long term. Gets truer as you get older and stop wearing skate shoes and such though--I can't see a 14 year-old wearing penny loafers to school.

I've got 3 pairs to denim cut offs sitting in my wardrobe I don't wear (Made them myself). I want to be creative and do something with them, since it's the holidays. What do?

My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

I'll just give them to the Op Shop or some charity then.

Jean shorts make good work clothes doing yard work and like. I have a couple pairs that see use whenever I am doing lanscaping, construction, or paiting because they aren't good clothes, and they are fairly easy to clean (because they don't mind a harsh wash or stain remover).

Don't ask why but I have 4 pairs. I was already planning on keeping a pair.

What's with everyone hating denim shorts?

Nothing wrong with something like that in my opinion.

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.

I have those shoes in the pic above, and the sole wore off in about 2 months. So, I ripped it off of the other one, put a bunch of duct tape on the bottoms, and they are now the most comfiest shoes I have

Bought myself some Levi 510 jeans. Wonderful tapered fit (similar to their 'Dockers' line) - would definitely recommend 510's if anyone is looking for some nice slim fitting jeans.

The 510's are grossly skinny IMO, 511's are much nicer.

There is not a good picture of me on the internet, I swear.

 

So, I need a haircut. Preferably something shorter.

My skin is finally getting soft

Buzz cut.

[Edit] Here Levi's call their 510 fit "Super Skinny".

The way your hair goes straight down like that bothers me. So uh, I suggest something where it doesn't do that.

What he's saying is it could do with more volume, but I assume that's not possible. Thus buzz cut.

had a look and yeah, the 511 is much more appealing then the 510's. Gunna buy myself a pair next week..assuming I can find some in Brisbane.

Indooroopilly has a Levi's store which is where I always buy the jeans. Usually some banging [bleep]es there too.

 

Otherwise Myer or Just Jeans should have them.

I tried on some toms, they were a little less than what I wanted and the sole was too skinny. I went to a huge mall and spent at least a few hours going around to all the stores with shoes and trying stuff on... ended up getting these. It'll take some time to get used to walking around in a flat shoe, hopefully they work out.

 

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. :)

I own both 510's and 511's - it may just be the certain 510's I have but they seem to be elasticated - the non-elasticated variety are grossly skinny. I bought them as a result of wanting to find something slimmer than the 511's (they're a bit on the baggy side for me) - and they were £25 too, which is rather cheap.
