Default Starbury shoes............thumbs up/thumbs down?

I need a new pair of shoes and I have little money, so I was thinking about picking up a pair of these. What are the pros/cons of these shoes? Am I getting what I paid for, or are they a bargain?

A friend tells me they're a bargain for their price.

i hav eonly purchased the non-bball sneaker (forget what its called). I like it. its held up well over the last 6-7 months, still looks good, decent shoe (probably made in the same factories as the $80+ shoes you see out there).

can these shoes be bought in LA? I understand they arent for sale everywhere.

I want a pair or two and I'll be in LA next month. Does anyone know where they might be sold?

Very good quality for $10. They held up better than my Jordan's, and I do more with the Starbury's.

Where I'm from, you would get clowned for sportin' a pair of Starbury's. It's not so much the way the shoes look, but it's the idea of wearing a pair of $15 shoes. People are like that here.

Where i'm from, you would be clowned if you had an empty wallet, but a nice pair of shoes. Its not about the way they look (even though they're kinda nice), its about saving money by still getting a quality shoe for $100+ less.

i got a pair for my 9yr old son to play in and he likes them alot. they seem to be holding up just fine so far for just $15. my local mall is getting a steve & barry's pretty soon too. the newer ones are nice looking. i would just buy a pair and try them out, it's only $15.

Can't go wrong with 15 bucks. I easily lose that much in change buying sports energy drinks for ball weekly, so to invest in a pair of shoes ain't no thing.

The jokes on them for spending $150 on a pair of shoes. I get what you are saying, and it's sad that there are people who are shallow like that.
