Great minds, dear boy, great minds.Me too, funny enough.
I was in the market for a pair last summer (and will be again next year) but I couldn't find any as cheap as that. Which is why I still don't have any.I'm currently in the market for a pair of espadrilles. Summer will come, and the heatwaves too, as sure as morn follows night. Sub ten quid, please.
It's all fashion, and fashion isn't about quality anymore (if it ever was, of course).Why would anyone wish to fork out 600 quid for a pair of trainers? ('sneakers' to the rest of the world) They're meant for sport, they're expendable, there's nothing much that you can put in in terms of technology and materials and what have you, and therefore not worth spending a fortune on.
Sheesh - that's enormous! How tall is he?The poor bastard is a size 17AAA.
Absolutely. If you're reasonably tall and slim, just about everything will fit you easily and will look decent on you.This is honestly 90% of looking decent, much to iGents dismay.
jan do you mean triple E (EEE)? width denoms go up in the alphabet. an A width would be the most narrow.^My brother-in-law is not that tall--a shade under 6'5". His older brother is 6'5", but his shoe size is a more attainable 15D. The latter has a son who is 6'7", but I don't know his shoe size. When I married into that family 25 years ago I was 6'3", but I have shrunk in old age down to about 6'1", and so I almost feel like the runt of the litter. However, my stepson is only 5'11" (the same as his mother), and three of my wife's four nieces have married men of average height, so I don't feel quite so dwarfed at family gatherings.
I've never seen a AAA measurement on a men's shoe, only on women's. That man must have the most narrow feet imaginable.No, I meant AAA, I assume that means ultra-narrow. I think EEE is the widest of sizes under the American system, which is why I suggested, were his feat as long as they are and ultra-wide, he could leave a very convincing Bigfoot trail.
I know how he feels. Shout out Dropbear^I suspect that's the case. I used to look at his choice of footgear with a certain iGent disdain, but now I see that the poor guy was trying to get anything that he could fit his strangely shaped feet into with some measure of comfort.
Trust me jan, its a nightmare.^I shouldn't think 10.5EEE would be too hard to find. I just did a search on the A-E website, and they had a whole passel of good-looking shoes in that size on sale right now. My stepson has a half-brother whose feet are, as I recall, 10.5EEE or something close to that.
