Can we do this with hands instead? I don't feel like taking my socks off.

Ugh, my mom bought me some running shoes, but are for Greek/tapered toe, and its impossible for my to use them without breaking some fingers. And I can't change it because she bought it in another country =/.

Anyway guys, if you are going to buy some shoes, look for what kind of foot are designed, I didn't knew about this and now I understand why I suffered soo much with some shoes.

The only things I look for in a shoe is size(always either a size 10-12, preferably 11), material, design, shape, and durability.

The only thing I used to look on was if it was wearable. Now I regret that view I had on shoes.

Oh ya, and I also used to search for functionality, as I only have shoes for running or trekking.

Yeaaa, but I prefer certain... qualities.

-The toe area must be suede
-Size 11
-Vulcanized and/or gum sole
-Low-profile, never hi-tops. -Never-.
-Flexible
-Use of canvas is kept to a minimum

Yea I'm picky with what shoes I get, cause I don't wanna pay like 50 bucks for some shoes I'll skate right through in a week, or that just don't skate well at all.

I have Egyptian. And my toes get shorter by equal increments toward the pinky.

Speaking of... (NSFW; blood)
I jumped out of a boat and crashed into a coral reef yesterday. I had no clue coral was in the area. D;

I can dig it. I only get 13s. If they don't have them in stock, I don't get shoes. That's why I only get Adidas Pro Model IIs, Adidas Super Stars or Puma Street Cats or Puma Sambas. When I do wear dress shoes or boots, I gotta get a square toe & the flatest sole posible.The Street Cats are my fav because they feel like socks with a sole on them & I can still get loose wit hthe Tai Chi.

But Clock's right they gotta fit right. My sister has the same square feet as the rest of my fam does, but loved to wear shoes that were probaly meant for the egyptian foot (high heels, pointy slip ons and shit..) Well, eventually, her big toes started to conform to that style. She wound up having to have multiple surgeries on her feet & now she way too big for her frame on account of all the time in bed recovering.

I don't have problems finding shoes for my foot shape, because my feet look like the feet in advertisements. People actually tease me about it sometimes??? o___O

But my feet are 26 centimeters, so I am sometimes bummed to find out that they don't have my size (US women's 9.5; men's 8). I have little room to complain, though; many of my family members are women's 11, which is very rarely made.
