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?

I thought they wore them to have something white to match their wanna-be white sunnies! 😉

It’s a nice bar, cool art-deco decor matching the exterior, good selection of beers on tap, nice crowd…

what’s not to like?

I went there recently for a night out with the lads, and the place was full of desperate old women. All right!!!!!!

I probably struck out because I wasn’t wearing those gay white sand shoes.

OK…so $20+ for Rabens…musta spent a fortune over the past year recycling my canvas (artist here…so used my Rabens as canvas 🙂

Just found a cheaper and better (imo) raben style shoe… called Deks. Check em out… http://www.zeaglegroup.com Now I can recycle every other week with the savings…bimonthly new art for the win

No, it isn’t. The comment was intended as a joke. I do try and go out of my way to support and encourage other people quite a bit.

I’ve worn those kinds of shoes (well not white ones, but the cheap canvas variety) for years. I’ve also suffered minor lower back pain for ages and psiatic nerve problems, I never thought the two were connected until the cheap pairs became trendy and expensive and I bought a proper pair of trainers for equal or lesser value. They are far from fashionable but they certainly fixed the problem.

Funny thing is I can remember being refused admission to an establishment far less civilised than this not so many years ago for wearing similar footwear (canvas shoes with no socks).

I’ve been to ABN in Volleys, but not for some time.

No, I’ve never been to Sub-urban and I wouldn’t know it from a bar of soap. It’s only All Bar Nun that I may have ruined.
