So back when I got the Timberland looking T-Wal FT boots I also got a pair of DVS skate shoes that also had a similar style. I thought it was cool that i got the same style footwear on and off the mountain. Now I'm in the market for shoe again and I was thinking what if a company such as Full Tilt made shoes to mimic their upcoming boots? Say, for example, they made a shoe that looks like what next seasons B&E boot looks like and release it for the summer. You put these shoes on everyday and when you do you'll be reminded of these sick boots you'll have in the winter. Come christmas time all the kids getting new boots will be asking for the matching shoes to show their buddies. They aren't gonna bring their boots everywhere they go but they would be repping the kicks!
I would not want some bright ass neon sneakers. Its bad enough that my boots are almost exact color of my after bangs, but thats why I spray painted them black. they look pretty interesting with it scraping off now though.
