I've never been compelled to purchase a pair, as I've never really been a big sneaker wearer, unless for athletic purposes. Lately, the T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and Ross Stores in my area have had them in large supply, especially Ross. I wasn't particularly moved by any of the styles until I ran across pairs in gold lamé and denim....then and there, I fell in love with the classic "2750." It's interesting that the prices differed between Ross and T.J. Maxx....I bought the gold pair at Ross for $19.99 and the denim pair for $32, marked down from $39, at T.J. Maxx. Still a bargain by any means!
I was sold on the denim pair because of the pink stitching, laces, and soles. One can always find a "regular shoe," but it's the little extras that work for me. I also included a picture of another pair that I contemplated, but was a little put off by the "scuffed look." While, I'm all about studs, I just couldn't get past the added "detail."
