White canvas shoes rather in at the moment?

By johnboy - 5 January 2009 53

The other night we were having a drink in Dickson while waiting for our take-away order.

While enjoying the atmosphere in Sub-urban we couldn’t help but be struck by the prevalence of white canvas shoes. Is this a uniform or something?

Also admire the way the bar stools make it look like g-strings are being worn!

What’s Your opinion?

JB, notice in the shot that the white shoes are for the (definitely) under 30s – along with the short(ish) shorts.

Glad I could help.

In future, if you’re going to nitpick at another’s typo might I suggest that you don’t make one yourself. 🙂

Thanks nys

realityskin, it’s called a typo. I’ll remember to have a good night’s sleep tonight so I can post like I normally do. Just for you, ok?

They’re popular, and with good reason.

Lightweight, cheap -about 20 bucks- and you can slip them and still get into pubs.

That said, every bastard has them now.

White shoes are only good for cricket.

Anything else and they are a bad throw back to 1950s American clean cut doo wop bands.

Ahhh, after many years, I am finally on the cutting edge of fashion in my Dunlop Volleys. Shame I went caving last week and they are no longer white…

I’ve had students (male) wear hot pink canvas shoes (sandshoes) to school. Some have also wore checkered ones, fluoro lime green ones and fluoro orange ones.

White stains to easily 🙂

I will have to wait until they are at vinnies. by then, the trend will probably be over.

Nothing says Summer in the City like the sockless, white slip-on. Tres chic!

I’ll confess to owning a pair or so of the black Dunny Volley. There is no good white shoe, IMO.
