Etnies Arto. Had them for 15 months now, still going strong. I saw some really dope looking etnies in an ad on danscomp's website, but couldn't find the model... if I do, I'll probably get those. They were the low tops (not slip ons though) with plaid pattern.

You started a "shoe thread" so you could talk about a new bike and hope not to be blasted like everyone else is for not searching. Just search and you will find your answer. Weight does not matter so much in completes... just get something that will last.

I footjam with my right foot so I wear a steel-toed doc on that foot, but I go shoeless on my left foot to save weight.

I'm brakeless and stop using my right shoe, but for some reason my left shoe is more worn down.

No. You should man up and get rid of your brakes.
