not exactly long lasting but most people go for the nike air force one
customise it to your liking with some dabs of paint and creativity

Hi,

Perhaps the classic converse? Cheap. I've seen people paint on that. They do a finish coat on the final product with something though, so that the elements don't really get to it and it lasts longer. A couple of friends in NYC were doing that.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Nobu

long lasting? depends on your usage. I've a pair of old North Star shoes which I wear to sec sch, and it's still lasting till today (around 5 years). On the other hand, my Nike sunning shoes has already worn out after 1 year of track and field training.

I had my VANS shoes, quite lasting, but recently got stolen (and i saw a Malay Skater wearing it!!!) i wore it for half a year, but it's as good as new :)

Seriously it all depends on how you take care of your shoes. Anyone got any brand to recommend? DIY a shoe sounds cool too... but the effort to be put in seems too great for me.
