Hey guys! Never knew such a thread existed here. TBhp never fails to amaze me! Got this pair of Crocs from Bangkok a couple of months ago. They somehow fit my lifestyle perfectly. I wear them at home, to the loo, when I am out, wherever I go! Very Comfortable!

I have a pair in dark blue and they're great. Especially when its raining, you dont have to worry about slipping or ruining your shoes. People say they look ridiculous but they're starting to grow on me.

The ones I have aren't very popular in India..but I simply love them..

Y3 - Black with Red Logo and white sole
Y3 - Green with Orange Logo and white sole
Stan Smith - Blue Suede with cream sole
GAP - Grey Canvas with skin coloured sole

I'll post the pics soon..

The others are nothing exciting, just formal shoes (Marks and Spencer) kept only for work.

Posting a pic of my most braggable pair - Aku (Italy). It has Goretex lining inside and Vibram soles. If anyone is interested, the precise model is called Utah. It's meant for hiking in the mountains with a big load on the back. But this picture was taken in Bandhavgarh while waiting (with perhaps 50 other Gypsies) for Mr Tiger to show up and feeling very bored by the wait. He did ultimately.
My other regular pairs aren't as braggable. Like Red Tape and Hush Puppies are my regular wear. Adidas is when I am in a sporty mood and Nike for those rare occasions when I feel like going for a jog etc. I do have another braggable pair but let me see if I can get a decent pic of them. Not telling what they are.
The second pic is from the website. It's not an exact replica but comes close.

Where do you get Hush Puppies for 1k Patience ? And which sub-brand? I want a pair right now. Hush Puppies are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn in life.

I bought it from Bata showroom two years back. 1k is not the exact price, but I am sure it was not more than 1.5k. I do not remember the sub-brand and the box is not there with me. It is brown leather, open type.

I could not find Hush Puppies when I visited Bata recently.

It is little heavy and comfortable for short walks. The fit is good. I rarely use it and I would not recommend it for long walks. Also the stitching did not last long even with less usage. I use it now to go to the nearby provision store.

I prefer light weight and I enjoy walking. I avoid vehicle whenever I can.

It's not the stitch but the gum that comes off in some time - generally in less than two years. Hush Puppies are notorious for that. You can keep them aside without wearing for two years and then the pasting would just come off one fine morning!! It has happened with me. But I still find them very comfortable.

If they are Ed Hardies then you might as well put up the pics. Must be a lot of tatoo art. Got some tatoo on your body too?
