Are Adidas Samba ...Girl or Guy shoes??

Q. I'm not a big fan of unisex anything, I was thinking of possibly buying a pair of these shoes if there not too girly. What does everyone think???

A. I remember having a pair of black with white stripe Adidas samba shoes about 10 years ago, and if I remember correctly, they were indoor athletic shoes - and the pair I had were guy's shoes. Now - that doesn't mean that Adidas hasn't branched out with this model...

A quick stop over at Adidas' website and searching for Samba quickly reveals that this is a men's athletic indoor shoe with some junior/kid models also available. The only women's clothing labeled with 'Samba' are a pair of tights and training paints.

See for yourself:

I personally loved the Samba shoe (classic white on black) when I had them because they fit really well when I was running. Your question causes me to long for a new pair so I can start getting fit again.

My friend who got me hooked on these shoes was a pretty athletic guy who played soccer. These shoes are durable and light weight. They aren't flashy or full of stuffing like many of today's $$$ basketball shoes. They are good looking and extremely practical. It's alot like wearing a lightweight slipper or glove over your foot ... not some heavy boot with stuffing that's going to weigh 5 lbs after it gets wet.

However, your question causes me to wonder if you put too much value on what people think about you because of the shoes you wear. I think that's a little shallow - however - I'm way past my teenage years, and have gotten over most of that traumatic teen peer-pressure business. I might be able understand why you might be a little self-conscious wearing these because these aren't 'trendy', however I'm more interested in fit and function than fashion.

If you want a comfortable athletic shoe - and if you can find a pair of Sambas that fit you just right - I wouldn't hesitate to buy them.

do these shoes will look good with this dress?
Q. I am planning on buying this dress for a wedding/birthday since its on the same day and i am wondering if this shoe will look good with this dress.
if not can you give me your opinions and links for shoes(:
i am not a big fan of heels; if i wear heels i might break some bone in my body.



thanks so much(:

A. And you're right, many people go to ER for broken bones wearing high heels. About 9million on Yahoo search engine for high heels accidents.

Yeah, for both, but I do NOT recommend buying shoes online. Buyer beware when it comes to buying shoes online, and I do not rec. using PayPal. I got screwed, took 3 years for my credit.
I bought 2 pair of shoes, $700 worth @ Zappos, where they have free shipping & free returns. I am a 5 1/2, so I bought a size 6. Returned them. Ordered a 5, too small. I saved $700.
I went to Nordstrom's, they're having shoe sales. Found 2 shoes, both less than $300. Both were rated as best comfortable shoes for walking. BTW: I wore one of the boots for 4 hours, and I didn't even do that much walking, mostly standing on the same spot . . . . and I was already limping. I took it back the following day!

My son bought a pair of Nike beach sandals. They didn't come in his size, so he bought the one larger. They weren't sold in stores! He was walking around sandals too big, only because he didn't want to pay for return shipping and re-stocking fees.
Shoes that are good for some, may hurt your feet. Just saying!

Thoughts about the woman pulled off the South West Airlines Flight?

Q. I'm curious to hear opinions of the young lady who was pulled off the SouthWest Airlines flight because her outfit was too revealing. The pictures of her, wearing her skirt and top were I thought not out of the norm, she was tall, blonde and a bit busty but nothing at all revearling about her top and her skirt was low to mid thigh. They actually showed some of the older SW Airline flight attendents from the 70's wearing hot pants on CNN today. Curious to hear opinions, because this woman was dressed nicely and I have seen some pretty poorly dressed people not get a second look. Think that jealously had anything to do with it?
I only saw the picture of her that was shown on the media. She looks fine in it and didn't have a tank top on, she had a top and sweater. My understanding was that it was a female passenger who complained after the boarded the plane and that she was given a blanket to cover herself after getting back on.

A. I offer 2 opinions on the topic of personal appearance in public places -

1. Airlines (Buses, Cruise ships, Railroads, etc) have the right to demand certain standards of conduct (or appearance)of passengers, and sometimes enforce that right when passengers or the airline would be harmed. In this case, however, I have heard that another passenger complained to the airline, and caused this situation to arise.
I have no idea what gives one passenger the right to judge the lady's clothing, this seems to be hypocritical and surely could have been resolved by moving the complaining passenger to a seat out of view of the young lady, and offering a blindfold to the complaining passenger.
Since the airline crew now had to intervene quickly, in order to let the flight take off on time, and keep the peace, perhaps it was easiest at the moment to do what SW did, right or wrong. On the other hand (with my perfect hindsight), if I were the air crew, I would have told BOTH passengers to get off and let them battle it out in court for being involved in a dispute of a nature unable to be resolved in a timely manner.

Opinion #2: On personal pride of appearance AND tolerance (or lack of tolerance), what ever happened to these things?
It used to be that far fewer people (slobs, etc) went out in public place dressed badly. I am not talking about dressing in a unique, trendy way, but plain out wearing ragged, dirty smelly clothing, etc. I once sat (in first class cabin, Dallas to London) way too close to a young couple and baby, dressed in worn-out jeans, tattered plain white-T shirts, cheap shower shoes, etc and the toddler wearing only a diaper and some kind of sleeping clothes, barely enough to keep it from catching cold. Granted that your clothing choices can be limited by your income and budget, but if you have the means to fly in first-class cabin to London, surely you could afford to dress better than that? On tolerance, YES, I thought to myself that if I had the power, I would tell that couple to dress more appropriately for the occasion, but of course I realized that I do NOT have that power, so I just kept my mouth shut, put on my headset, listened to the music, and enjoyed the flight.

Ok, open for debate, I would like to read your comments, anyone?

My worst nightmare is being a 'momish' woman?
Q. I'm female but I am so so unlike all the women I know.
I have coworkers who are married and all they talk about is how 'amazing' their snot nosed toddlers are. And they all walk around with cheerios and juice boxes and babywipes. And they all look the same. Same haircut, wearing gross unflattering capri pants, keds. And theyre all obsessed with losing weight and eating salad and new trendy fashion or diet fads. Its like an endless cycle of talking about clothes, shoes, sales, coupons, kids, husband.
It's all so boring and unappealing.
I'm serious. With the exception of being literally tortured, my worst nightmare is having these people as friends for the rest of my life.
Where are all the cooler people?
To clarify: my worst nightmare would be if I actually lived this lifestyle. Ughh. The fact that so many women are like this and actually LIKE it seriously confuses me.
Thanks Brownies! Yay, hope :) Maybe it's just the area I live in.
@ Susan

You NAILED it with the yoga look.
They're like "My hubby Donald needs me to stay in shape, or he's gonna run off with his floozy secretary Riley. Ever since I hit 30, my metabolism just isn't what it used to be and I need to let everybody know it. But resistance training will make me look masculine so I have to do either Yoga or dance aerobics with a group of other women because I lack the will power to fly solo. And I can't change out of my clothes because then people won't see that I've exercised today. And I have to pick up Conor and Justin at school and then bring them to their football and soccer games. Thank goodness I chose gender appropriate activities without even asking them if they were interested or not. They're just mommy's little all-stars. If only I had a girl then I could have her take dance. Oh, better get home and cook my quinoa brown rice green tea spelt sea weed tufo dinner ! dr oz says so, and I believe every word.&#39

A. Oh man, I understand this. I'm 42 and no children because I don't want children. Other women that I know or see out in public , around my age, dress/behave just the way you described in your question. I am so careful not to have my hair cut like theirs or wear what they wear. I don't want to be mistaken for a "mom".

I'm glad that the other ladies who answered this question are cool and do their own thing. I feel relieved.-sincerely.

I have to say the outfit that irritates me the most is the "just came from yoga class and I'm still wearing black capris, even tho this style of pant looks tacky on me, and my hair is gross tied up in a bun, but I'm buying groceries real quick at the market look".
They wear that outfit all day.
