comparing a used car or home to shoes is a stretch…

comparing women to shoes is hillarious…

shoes are nasty, they step in piss and **** and get sweat in them all day…i think the closest thing you can compare shoes to is underwear

No joke… take one trip to a urinal and you never realize how much piss you get all over your shoes no matter how careful you are. One night at the bars and it’s a wrap. Now imagine getting used shoes and what they’ve been through.

If I can’t afford shoes brand new, I’m buying different shoes. No foot fungus is worth saving a few dollar's

Miss me with that disinfectant **** too, I don’t know that person or where their foot has been, some people got some nasty feet :sick:

Yall princesses are so extreme. :lol: I been buying [lightly] used shoes (as well as new, obviously) for many years and it's literally never been an issue. As long as you clean/disinfect them properly, in the VAST MAJORITY of cases, it'll never be a problem. Also, buying used kicks has nothing to do with not being able to afford new. That sounds stupid and absurd. Case in point, my OG 1991 fab 5 flight huaraches (top 10 all time grail for me) woulda been unwearable had they been DS so it was good they were worn a few times bc it bonded the glue, which in turn made them wearable. I got literally a few years of wear outta them as a result of them being VVVNDS as opposed to DS. They woulda crumbled instantly had I tried to wear a DS pair.

They need to retro these correctly so badly. The last pair had such a terrible toe box I couldn’t look past it.

I'd say 80% of all the shoes I own were used. Makes no sense to pay that $50-$150 more for a DS pair, if I'm jus gonna wear 'em as soon as they arrive. As long as they aren't beat to a fine pulp, they chillin'

…do folks not clean their shoes anymore?
I do, usually once a month. On really white pairs of shoes (like my zebras) I sometimes have to clean them multiple times a month, just because my idiot friends step on them with their stupid air max excee's. Plus every time I walk into a public bathroom, the soles look even more like piss.

I work in the medical field so I sanitize everytime I come home. Also, how the hell people get urine on their shoes? Stand with feet apart lol
That don't matter, piss is everywhere on public restroom floors. Never take a blacklight in there I'll tell you that much. The whole dam room will be glowing brighter than nuclear test sites.

I have some old Refreshed shoe cleaner thats like 15 years old and the scrub brush that came with it, works well. I just rinse parts of the shoe with hot water and scrub the mudsole and any parts of the upper that need it. My shoes really dont get very dirty.
