ok, so if you've read the T-SHIRT idea thread, you know i posted a few weeks back about getting some VI.org - themed shoes made.

here's what's happened so far: ok, they would be White NIKE AIR FORCE ONE lowtops. An image of WALDER or CYBORG on the toe, and along the back. Approx. $200 - 250 each, size of your choice.

I'm back to square one at this point; my original source would have cost $300-350 a pair, and the quality was not up to par for this price (after much prodding the guy said the image would run in the rain. can't have that, can we!!) My 2nd source was about $200-250 a pair, but unfortuatly the image would be either sewn on or heat-transfered, again, somebody could do that with their home computer, a printer, and $20 at an art store for the iron-ons. no good again, i say.

I found someone today who would make them for $300 a pair, great quality. but i felt this was still a little too high, and he couldn't do the custom tongue like i wanted. Sad


would any of you guys be on board for a WALDER or CYBORG shoe, in the $200-250 range? i know i could get rid of a few pairs outside of VI.org to the shoe-collecting-community. i want to see if this is seriously worth pursuing any further. this isn't a serious commitment, its just to gauge how many folks would be willing to pay that much.

what features would you want? colors? walder? cyborg? shonen? jaguar? all four?

just speaking for me, I'm not into sneakers, 'specially not $250 ones!

converse old school basketball shoes are cool, all black , but i no longer have patience for laces.

man, that's totally more than i can afford right now... It'd be so awesome, but it's a pretty deep commitment to footwear!

it IS a big commitment. it's a lot of $$$, but they would have been really cool.


i guess i'm gonna call it quits. Sad

i dont think it's really possible to make these for under $200 and have them be nice, not rip-off homemade computer-printout mall trash.

I would like a garment that renders the body transparent with machinery inside, so that I can actually BE Cyborg.
