Same goes for the rest of my clothes, I have a policy of spending as little as I can get away with. That being said, if you saw how much I am willing to spend on a new Taylor guitar you'd piss yourself. Probably much like you M and his bikes, I suppose ...

Sadly, I may have to violate my own rule for next season because I need a new pair of football boots and it seems impossible to find a pair for under $30.00 unless you're eight!

Quite honestly, even $20.00 is pushing it for me.
I own a couple of pairs of sneakers and some Docs. Don't think I own actual shoes.

I need 'em for work. Otherwise I'd just be wearing my trainers every day

Yep. He cannot complain about my shoe/boot passion when he has a shop full of motorcycles and parts that cost a lot more

At least motorbikes are fun and get you places. Shoes are useful for stopping your feet getting wet, but basically bugger all else

Men's shoes and clothes are so much nicer than they used to be. I like all the little trainer/skate shoes.

I hate those things, they're always worn by some godawful twat in skinny jeans who looks like Edward VII

Most of what I like to wear would be very at home in the audience at, say, a Status Quo concert

It's hard to find a decent pair of winter shoes for under $20...but you can probably get away with not needing cold weather boots in Texas...

Those Van's, they're comfy though...and they look better than Crocs.

Speaking of Crocs, I really should look out for a new pair on clearance...

My last pair of footware was a pair of boots from Clarks on clearance for under $50...had to get them because one of the toerags removed my shoes from my bag to stick another teddy bear in and some how I didn't think I could get away with going to a posh wedding do in a pair of blue and orange crocs.

Me too. They're easy and look alright...
The ones I'm getting (my foot is so naffing small I had to order them from online) are similar but no laces (hate those with a passion, always come undone on me )
