    Picked these Vans up while I was in Texas. Been a while since I've actually had a pair of Vans. They're pretty comfy

    I just saw this video on the new Vans and I kinda wanted a pair but even at its price I still rather get some decent Adidas.

    Honestly ever since New Balance became Trump shoes, Adidas have been my go to for sneakers. Some Vans are pretty cool, but nothing else really does it for me. Also I hate the trend of sneakers having ridiculously blown out soles.

    Tried the outlets on Sunday but nothing struck my fancy, so I ordered a pair of Sambas

    Got a pair of those new Comfy whatever Vans slip-ons and it’s the first time in my life I can wear them without wanting to die.

    ComfyCush. They've actually been selling some shoes with better-cushioned insoles for a little while now, but this is the first time they've marketed them as obviously. Before you had to find certain Pro or Lite models. I have a pair, and they're wonderful. I'm glad to see Vans keep going with the idea, unlike Converse who discontinued the Chuck II.

    When I'm not broke like I am right now, I'm going to get myself a new pair of old skool Vans. These orange ones are pretty rad & I'm leaning towards them.

    Anyone ever bought anything of StockX? Good/bad?

    StockX has been good in my experience (bought 5 or 6 pairs in the past year). Some shoes (specifically foams) I have read are harder to verify and some people have ended up getting fakes but that seems very, very rare. Most common issue I have seen is that some people receive pairs that aren't completely DS.

    DS? Also do they only sell unworn pairs?

    DS means Deadstock. They are supposed to only sell unworn pairs in original boxes. Basically sellers send their shoes to a StockX warehouse, someone inspects them (eye test), they put a StockX tag on it and verify, then ship it out to you.

    I bought a pair of Jordan XIV's and 3 pairs of Prestos and Presto Mids (haven't been into sneakers for 5 or 6 years until last year). I personally haven't had any issues, shipping was always up to date, shoes came in perfect condition in the original boxes.

    I had a good experience with GOAT (bought 1 pair of flyknit Prestos) until somehow, someone hacked my account on there and purchased a pair of shoes without me knowing (didn't even use the same mailing address or name on the account that I had) and then had to deal with getting a refund from GOAT that took forever due to their less than stellar customer service.

    I have purchased a couple pairs from StockX and have never had issues. My only beef, and its 100% just me, is that I hate waiting for stuff and it takes a little longer with StockX.

    Sweet, cheers for that. Although I should imagine that, if they take a while to deliver to the states, I’ll have an even longer wait in the UK!

    Ya, I believe they have a warehouse in the UK or at least in Europe. But at least in my experience, tracking numbers and shipping information was kept up to date and I never felt like I was in the dark about where my sneakers were.
