    nothing good can possibly come from this

    adidas has been making some fucking retarded looking ugly shoes lately they even shitted out the fucking shell toes with all sorts of retarded ass colors and shiny shit, and reebok has never made a decent looking shoe
    nike is still whooping ass in the competition to make the most rediculous looking shoes on the face of the planet

    oh well at least i still have etnies, dvs, dc, emerica, and a few other skate companies, making some half decent looking stuff

    Addidas has and will be my favorite sneakers. For some reason they fit my size 14's well and I can always find a subtle style that fits my liking. Just my .02.

    i like my reebok classic mids(theyre the 80s style one); very comfortable and lasts through alot of abuse. I never liked any of the new stuff Reebok put out though.

    Wow. I never really liked Adidas or Reebok, but right now I wish I had some stock in them.

    My adidas running shoes have held up quite some time, but I'm going to jump ship and get some Brooks next week.

    The Wall Street Journal had an article about this yesterday.

    Nike is currently the market leader in the sneaker industry, and Adidas wants to be able to compete with them.

    Rebok hasnt done so well lately, so the deal just made sence.

    . . E is right though - Adidas has been producing garbage as of late.

    I like newbalance a lot, just nto quite enough arch support now for me. I've had a couple pairs of 804's, but I end up having to put in super feet insoles.

    I still buy nothing but Nike running shoes- they work the best for me. At work and around town, I usually wear Dr. Martens. I'll always have a pair of Airwalks or Vans that I wear every now and then too.
