sh*ts pointless. Things are worth whatever youre willing to pay. If you want something you pay what you think its worth.

I only buy my 5s from the outlet. Other than that I rock airforces regularly.

The most I'd go for is butter timbs....for now atleast.

That being said jordan 5s are made proper. Super comfy to walk with long distances. I never feel like they poking my pinky toe.
Jordan 5 is not uncomfortable, but I would never praise it as a comfortable sneaker for long distance walking.

Expensive dress shoes yes, expensive sneakers no. As a luxury item if you got the money and want to treat yourself by all means but nobody is benefitting from owning $220 Js

Having worn, forces/timbs/jordans all through my 20s, I discovered the world of running shoes and haven't looked back. When I'm not wearing dress shoes or boots, I'm in $150 Brooks running shoes. Those joints are worth every penny.

Now that I'm married in my early 30s with kids, I couldn't give a fu*k about fashion. I can honestly say,

I still have timbs, jordans, air max and whatnot, but my Brooks gets the most airtime.

As someone with a wonky back, expensive shoes are definitely worth it (excluding retros)

My body feels significantly better if I wear higher end runners/basketball shoes everyday.

expensive for being techy to provide better comfort/perf is completely different from expensive for being hyped

Basically YES...except for the weird cheap ringer they throw in at the end that almost seems like an advertisement for the shoe.image But interesting watch being they got them lab tested. Wish they did runners.

They aren’t and the way fashion is going sh*t gets old insanely fast. Because it’s for flexing on people. So it’s the “I gotta get the new”

Buy what you like and what fits you best

The dollar is in the quality no doubt that’s a fact

So never invest whole heartedly unless you sure you can wear it forever

Boots and running shoes yes, everything else no, but bet there is at least 1 person trying to justify their jordans.

I've never been a cheap anything person. I'll pay for the comfort of knowing my money is going towards something that fulfills whatever my particular want/need is. Quality is #1. Most times you don't have to sacrifice aesthetic or performance in higher end. You usually do as the price point drops. Not always a 100% fact, but will apply more times than not.

I got a fake pair of yeezys for work. I was wearing them around (I walk a lot for work) and they fell apart quick and were super uncomfortable.

Never will I buy counterfeit again.

Now, price does not equal quality. But quality on discount is great. I have a really good wallet, marked down from $500 to $150, and that thing is rock solid, looks new, been going strong for years.

3s and 5s have essentially the same fit and comfort level.
Close but the 3's have the rino pattern on the front


That bit of rino presses against my pinky toe for a size 11 too. I dont feel it at first but over time it begins to hurt.

Ive worn 5's in size 10 , 10.5 and 11 and they expanded comfortably. I can walk all day in them things. I especially like when they brand new and u can feel the air bubble in the midsole.

sh*t umma be in portland this weekend umma see whats good wouldnt mind a new pair of 3s or 5s

I'm business casual mostly, but 4 times a month I gotta put on a suit.
I have only high end suits and formal shoes.

For business casual days I rock shoes from all over.
Hell from WalMart if I like em.
As soon as I get at my desk I take my shoes off anyway.
I take em off to drive also.

For working out I try them on and whatever feels right I buy.

Ultraboost are all worth it for me. There isn't any cheap Payless, or rack room shoes that compete with them comfort wise.

I have a deformed fifth metatarsal on my pinky toe that's crooked, that causes me to get callouses between pinky and next toe. As a result when I wear a lot of shoes they pinch my toe and it's very painful. The most comfortable Js that don't pinch me I'd say are my 6s alternate 91s. I also own a bunch of 1s (most don't pinch), my BC3s sometimes pinch, sometimes feel fine. My 11s are fine as well. Do you guys know of other J models that have enough space to where my toe won't get squished?
Ima need you to explain your take on the 6s cause I have a few for the style but my god they are miserable to walk around in. 6s feel like you are standing on a stone slab. They are the only Jordan that feels like it has 0% cushion, and most Jordan’s are pretty uncomfortable

11s and 13s are decently comfortable but still nowhere near a boost or zoom or react
