    no article of footwear ever conceived by man or beast (probably man...) can ever come close to the glory provided by my Osiris D-3 2001's, i love these shoes more than life itself, which isnt saying much i suppose. but i love these shoes and plan on forming a deep and meaningful relationship with them. so what if they look like moonshoes? the bitchezzzzzzzzzz like it (i wish....)

    is that wedding bells i hear for me and my D-3's...............?

    Reflective strips, bright yellow laces, and other assorted garbage doesn't help me skate. The only thing it's gonna do is provide some humor in 5 years. I'll be happier when skating ceases to be a sport again.

    man, I went from Chucks to 2 pairs of the original Jordan's, then I rode Avia 420's for a few years , I had some Vision StreetWears and Airwalks, then I just skated what I was wearing for a while, bowling shoes SUCK, and then Simples came out... that original shape, HOLY INDESTRUCTABLE!.. these days I skate what I can find at Ross, usually Airwalks, whatever, it's only $20 or so...

    If ever a skate shoe could outshine another, it would be done by the original "Sal 23". Simply a milestone in higher skateboarding footwear.

    I found some old emerica models.
    I bought them. I really dislike "astro boots"

    I too have had a pair of dc d3's, they are nice..but not the greatest skate shoe ever invented, im gonna have to go with eric koston ones, or maybe the old etnies, like the mc raps....nice lotop skate shoes with durability and dont cost you an arm and a leg, plus no reflectors, which is very important for city bombin and shit, i have heard of kids gettin caught from the reflectors at night...oh, and yes, go to ross!! I got some cabs there about 2 years ago for 15 bucks, when they were still in the stores for almost 65-70..
