Nonsense, I plan on being buried in these fuckers.
Nike makes fine shoes, comfortable and sturdy.

My feet is exactly where these belong.
They will surround my feet with soft pillowy goodness, soften my steps with advanced air cushioning technology and please the eye with their striking yet undestated styling.

I rock these from Danner:

Should have gotten black, but Oh, well.

Nikes are shoes. These are kind of stylish and cooler than me. They'd look funny walking behind a tiller, but I imagine they're great for pirouetting at just the right angle to punch a yuppie in traffic.

Yeah, they're alright.

Yes they are boots, they are an exciting new idea in hiking boot development. They cross the comfort and style of sneakers with the durability and toughness of boots.

By the way, Ringo is the only one so far who understood that I wanted this to be the 'Let us see your boots' thread.
Nice pair, Ringler. Look sturdy.

Sturdy and water resistant, which is important when you get your truck stuck in the mud. It happens to me far more often than I'd like to admit.

I should have bought these:

This is the problem with Danners. In ten years, when my current pair wears out, I probably will get the black ones.

You can do pretty well buying Red Wings, too, but Danners are my favorite.

Why even have a poll? You should just have started a thread in General Discussion called, "My new boots - if you don't like 'em, you're mistaken. And fuck off."

Steel toe Oxfords are all you need. No Nike.

My point mentioned above... you want boots... you got lots of different boots for your needs. Oxfords ain't my preference by a long shot but by the same token they're not hideous. Sneaker/boots... Just. Ain't. Right.

American in a way us Europeans unfairly see you yanks. Its big, loud and vulgar.

I have never seen that pair for sale, I have seen the other lame Sabbath designs all over but not these.
I would still buy the Vol. 4 converse.

Fuck those sneaker boots are hideous. No way I'm putting that bullshit on my feet. I'd rather just lose the fuckers to frostbite.

Might as well go the full nine. I hear Nike is making these for cranberry farmers:

Boots should look like fucking boots. Like the type men would wear at the factory or the construction site. These are fancy lad basketball slippers and therefore crap. Even more so because of the failed claims of boothood.

My biggest bitch about current styling of what the limeys call trainers, is how they have make believe spring looking things in the soles like your silly shoes have. We are not monster trucks or Tiger from Winnie the Pooh. We don't need shock absorbers in our heels.
