    Trainers

    Not of the personal variety, but of the footwear type

    Does anyone else here have a penchant for trainers that sometimes get them worried? Cleaning out my room I found a pair under the bed I'd forgotten I had and threw out two pairs because the idea of having seven pairs was frightening. I'm a retro Adidas/Puma man myself.

    I love etnies. Have 8 pairs at the moment, 4 of them are exactly the same!!

    I want these new Y3's but noone has the ones I want. Is so annoying.

    Nike Shox are the dogs, they just wont wear out! So comfy.

    In my collection I also have 2 pairs of Adidas driving shoes with the goodyear sole.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Comfy yes, not too sure about wear, suppose I get good mileage out of mine, but they do wear down, my 15st+ frame doesn't help also...
