New shoes

So since football season has started my jordans arent really made for running so i need some cross training shoes and i was thinking about these. any other suggestions? I need something light, breathable, flexible, and good looking.

If you like them, why not? I personally am not too crazy about the styling.

I've never bought a pair of shoes without seeing them in person and trying at least one of them on before... I might take the chance on a pair of Lotek Throwbacks, though, they seem pretty good and most shoes fit me fine when they're broken in.

I know, just took the liberty of posting something a little off topic. It's not like the thread was related to BMX anyway.

I don't know, I like my asics something-or-other shoes. And I like my 5.10 High Impact shoes for riding. I had to order those online and it turned out pleasant. No such luck with MX boots. I tried on 10+ different models before I found something my feet agreed with.

I've had to search for MX boots before, nothing new seemed to fit good.

But I did manage to score some older Fly's that fit perfect.

Go for the Nikes. They look nice?

I hate shoe shopping. My feet are too wide to wear most companys. No Nikes, too narrow

I prefer Vans and DC. Except i don't like most DC's just the ones i have.

DVS's are really wide, but they're not as comfy as my Circa's.
