I think Diesel makes great sneakers that hold up really well. I have a pair of Diesel brown leather sneakers that I wore constantly for almost three years and they look like new! I especially love the Swedish label Tretorn shoes. I have five pairs and love them all dearly!
I recently designed my own pair of Nike's on the NikeID website. You can design your own version of one of their classic styles. I did mine in white and black patent leather - kinda Chanel/Gareth Pugh inspired. They took aaaaaaaaages to break in because of the patent leather but now they're super comfy!
Gawwwd, I can't get over Converse. The only problem is that they take a while to break in. I've kept a black pair for at least 4 years, and only recently are they fraying and starting to tear away from the rubber.
i'd rather live it 'cause dreamers always chase but never get it...............................♥ sam ypma
