You know, I like shoes from the brand "Simple".

Why?

They're freaking comfortable.

They're the most consistently comfortable shoe brand ever.

I've never had a pair of shoes from them that haven't been comfortable.

It's only a bonus that they're ecofriendly. I really don't care about it, myself.

The current pair I wear the most are about 11 years old. And the next newest pair I have, for wet days, are about 5 years old but have only been worn about a combined amount of time of maybe a month.

The old ones are insanely comfortable. The newer ones are only quite comfortable.

The old ones aren't sold anymore, the newer ones are these: Link

I want to check out a new Übercomfortable pair. So, I check out the latest sale email from Simple that I got yesterday. OK, some stuff that looks comfortable, decent prices.

I look at the full stock...these look incredibly comfortable: Link

They look like crap--but they're made from recycled hemp, bamboo and car tires. I don't care how my shoes look--I'm wearing shoes I've had since I was a sophomore in high school for ****sake.

So, they're made from hemp, which is cheap. Bamboo, which is the fastest growing plant in the world...and is GRASS goddamnit. And recycled car tires.

AND THEY COST NINETY BUCKS?

Are you ****ing kidding me?

Two bucks worth of material, six fifty worth of labor, and you charge almost a hundred dollars for it?

This is the problem with the "green" economy.

It's a ****ing scam!

Dude, I live in the US where every other black dude needs size 18 shoes. They're no more expensive here than my size 12.5 shoes (oh yeah, 5'8" with size 12.5 shoes, I look like a freaking clown).

I've never paid more than $50 for shoes and very seldom have I paid more than $25. And I also don't go to budget stores for shoes. I shop sales and I go to small local shoe stores so I can bargain with the manager.

The last time I bought a suit, I also got a $500 pair of shoes thrown in because I haggled with the manager.

I have been wearing Vans and Converse since I was born with few other brands. I love them. They both age very well. Converse aren't really skate boarding shoes, so when I did skate back in High School, I wore Vans almost every day.

When I skated, the Vans had a lifespan of about 6 months. But if I took care of them and tried not skate in them often, they would stay usable for 9 months to a year.

The Converse stayed pretty well too.

That's a bit excessive, maybe if they were the best shoes in the world and allowed you to walk on water I'd pay $90 >.>

I only wear Adidas because I find them more comfortable than other brands. And I love the awesome designs they put on them.

As for price, if I like them I buy them, regardless of price. But I shop at a warehouse store so I get them for around $50 which is awesome.

Oh, and I don't buy anything "green" unless it offers a real advantage over the standard stuff. And simply being "green" isn't an advantage, it's just eco-hippie babble.

It has nothing to do with bring green. I thought I made that clear.

I'm all about comfort, as are 99% of Simple's customers.

I know. I wasn't referring to you, just society in general.
