I am a self admitted shoe junkie. I have more shoes than my girlfriend.
I like New Balance, Nike Classics, Cole-Haan, Magnanni, and Allen-Edmonds ...
I hate Puma and I hate Aldo's.
I love Esquivel but have only been able to afford one pair.

I've worn Etnies since 8th grade (7 years now) and I own only 1 pair at a time (besides the older pairs that I send to recycling). I also own a pair of boots i got from the mall but the brand name is unknown (I scratched it out)

Anything vegan  

Usually Faded Glory; they're non leather and inexpensive ($10).



I just purchased these Saucony Vegan sneakers online; they're made from hemp and canvas.

I don't know anything about shoes and clothes, I just buy what seems good looking, practical, and fits (I have big duck's feet). At the moment I wear a pair of Van's, a pair of Osiris (a similar skate brand), a pair of Ellesse (not snickers but big leather shoes) and my dress shoes are no brand black leather shoes.

Usually Vans, but I've taken a liking to Converse One Stars recently.
I have terrible trouble buying shoes in shops however, with my giant size 14s (US 15, euro 50's).

I also hate flip-flops with a passion (unless you are at the beach or taking a shower)! I once has coworker that I was interested in dating until she wore a business suit with flip-flops to work one day. That was the end of that! or as I told her "you look good from the ankles up".

New Balance...hands down. They make a good product, and the sneakers I buy are US made, so I'm also supporting US jobs. In terms of dress shoes, I don't have a favorite brand.

I'm basically a girl when it comes to shoes. My favorites are Nike. They last forever. I've had one pair for going on 5 years now, they still fit, they haven't fallen apart, and the bottoms are just now starting to get worn. And thats for wearing them every day except for deep snow days in the winter.

I had no particular favourite, until I discovered Ecco about fifteen years ago. In work I'm on my feet most of the day so a comfortable shoe is important, and since a bout of plantar fasciitis six years ago a shoe with good support is essential. They may be dearer than other shoes but they're well worth it: one recently-retired pair lasted about eight years.

Almost all my shoes are now Ecco.

I have so many pairs of shoes it is stupid. It is not my doing, my wife keeps bringing them home. I just keep wearing my old Merrells and Timberlands and she gets so mad. Right now I have on a pretty cool pair. Löwe.

I don't like shoes. It's a pain for me to go and buy some. So I keep it to just two pairs (three with the running shoes, but I only wear them for that purpose, really), and I only change them when they are really really really worn.

I've worked for one of the worlds largest shoe retailers for over six years and have quite a collection. I could never pick one brand and stick with it.

Dress/Fashion - Aldo or Mr B's Collection
Everyday Sneakers - Geox
Leisure Sneakers - Puma or Adidas
Gym - Mizuno

I have a pair of True Religion patent-leather high-tops which I am currently wearing almost everywhere but this is my first pair from them so we will see how they last. Since I live in an area with lots of winter I have a pair of Superfit Waterproof boots for the days when its absolutely horrible out and I need to stay warm and dry.

Saucony and Clarks are 2 brands I keep buying and really enjoying. Such quality merchandise and fair prices.

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 46):

Agreed. The side-to-side stability they give is nice to the knees as well. Feels planted. Could you share your favorite brands for that? Who makes the best? I've got some Adio, some DC. A pair of Wrays that are done.
