For anyone interesting in this kind of thing, no sweat apparel sells a sweatshop-free, union-made knockoff. I got a pair of the red ones on sale, came to $30 with shipping. Not that bad on your wallet or conscious

They are good for unicycling but agressive for your foot when you are walking on the street

If it's your favorite pair of shoes you shouldn't wear just one of them. They will wear unevenly. And Convrse Wear otu extremely quickly. If oyu're wearing them everyday they won't last you more than 6 months before they are fallign apart.

Plus agian they have very poor arch support so they are terrible for walking around on hard surfaces all day.

They do seem ideal for freestyle--I wish I could fit them. My feet are too wide on the end, as is the problem with fitting most shoes.

The converse site doesn't mention a wide version, but I doubt it'd fit my heel anyways. My feet are narrow at the heel and wide at the end. Shoe shopping is no fun.

For the arch support, just buy some gell inserts, not the crappy ones that just go in the back, but ones that replace the entire bottom of the shoe, that what i use and it makes walking in my cons a dream, i prefer walking in my cons with my insoles in them then any other shoe i have ever worn.

my shoes



Tis my street unicycling shoes, but they are getting small on my feet. Dorfman, where do you get custom converses? I'm thinking I'm wanting my next pair to have a yellow skull with cross bones on them. Anyways, there are the best I've used for street unicycling.

For off-road, I live in Saudi Arabia, so it means soft sand, or bumpy rocks.

For bumpyness I use big padded felxible Nikes (Nike Dunks), like so:



For sand, if any of you have to deal with that, I like Nike Prestos, flexible light slip-on shoes:
