    Looking to get myself some new shoes, and really don't know where to look online besides JD and Foot Locker for the sort of thing i want, and i know a few of you know your shoes and where to get them on here..

    So anywhere you can recommend?

    Also if anyone is good at hunting shoes down can you find these somewhere other than JD as they are sold out?..

    Nice one!

    this, they have all sorts of nice shoes in there. can sometimes find a bargain in their sale items.

    also TK Maxx, i keep buying adidas super stars from there now, cause they are always cheap, and always cool

    It's not just whether they're fake or not though, it's whether they ever arrive on your doorstep or not. A ridiculous ammount of websites are popping up in the last few years just working on the sneaker freak scene and then not sending any trainers out, closing down and opening up under a new name.

    Yeah shoes are formal whereas trainers are more informal.

    What do Americans call them? Shoes and sneekers?
