    What ya saying people?

    Personally, I like nice trainers, either Old Skool or tasteful future (like Reebok Pumps with the cut outs)...

    But being skintish, I'm choosy what I buy, look after them, and like them to last and stay nice, anything that gets messed up after one night out won't work for me...

    I ain't a Trainer spotter, but I've got a few pairs (mainly through keeping them in nice condition) all of which I wear.

    At the moment I like New Balance very much, but also like to check Adidas & Reebok (tho tbh apart from Pump Furys, which cost a packet, most Rbks don't appeal at the mo).

    I don't wear Nike, partly ethically, but also cos my ex got two pairs last year, both started to fall to bits after a few wears...

    I feel a poll coming on...

    Nike slut, vaguely ashamed but not enough to stop!

    I should buy something else, but there's a factory outlet near me and you pick up some choice stuff sometimes. I ended up with some Japanese version Air Max original at one point.

    Nike for me all the way,but i do own addidas,puma and prada trainers.
    I do try to buy a brand new pair every month,seeing as it'll be summer again soon i'll be on the look out for more nike air rifts,the ones with the split toe,to go with all the others i got.

    I was collecting Nike Dunk Low's for a while but got bored.

    I'm currently sporting a nice pair of Nike's (white / green) I picked up in Sport & Ski, love 'em! They're like skate shoes.

    I also like Adidas and Vans (y) :)

    Currently keeping my eye out for a pair of black sneakers.

    hmmm, where to begin!!

    Well, i've got a pair of Air Max's but don't wear them that much cos i get blisters from them!! I also have a pair of Circa skate shoes and i wear them all the time aswell as my K-Swiss which also get worn alot. I used to have 2 pairs of Duffs but i'm now down to 1 pair. I'm a trainer whore, what can i say!!

    Yeah. Adidas are good at the mo'.

    If I could only have one pair of trainers, at random from any brand I'd prolly choose Adidas.

    I tried on a pair of Gola today. Old skool wid 3 velcro straps, White with blue & red detail.

    Looked real nice but felt like reinforced cardboard...

    I took a few steps round the shop with one Gola, & one New Balance on, and thought: 'Nah! That's (the NB) is what trainer's are supposed to feel like'
