Pair of Adidas Atlanta
How many pairs have you got, Fedayn
Only 25 moose, Adidas mainly but also some New Balance, Nike and Puma.
I tried so hard not to.
Whereas I had no resistance to this whatsoever. The fabric is a beautiful devoré in dark colours.
Are they DM Leonas?
They are fab!
Gorgeous colour too...
Yes - I was doing ok till I realised they were out of stock almost everywhere, and had to panic buy
Oh crap. Now I'm motivated...
DM's should be in 1 colour and one colour only, ie brown/oxblood and be either 8 or 10 holes. Nothing more, nothing less.
Fabulous frock moose
Well...they're great in black too.
Aye, if you are a polis yes.
Yeah, but I already have several pairs of each of those
Ha ha... I love my black DMs.
I've black patent and Black Matt with yellow and black laces...and a black pair with red roses.
Two black pairs for me, too. Soft leather ones and yer more trad ones. I am not a policeman afaik. Also a red ruboff pair. Lava-something-or-other I think they're called.
Just wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong...
The top selling boots in the UK for police are:
After that they wear these Adidas GSG-9.2 Tactical Boot
See....these are the brands sold in the UK for police...no sign on DMs
on sale and came today \o/
It was the 60s and 70s that plod wore them. Old habits die hard.... The robocop stuff they wear now is awful.
Adidas make really shite stuff too. As can be seen....
The biggest buyers of DMs in the first years of production were housewives. not the plod.
Postmen and factory workers came next...they were very much the go to boot of all sorts of workers...and were championed by the working class.... then they entered popular culture with the skinhead movement . Even pope JP2 wore them.
It's the 21st century now
Anyone can wear them.
The DM boot aa we know it came out 1/4/1960 hence the original oxbloods being the 1460 boot. Very much seen as a workboot by the makers. Became part of popular culture as a result of them being taken on by skinheads. Older traditional skinheads always preferred the 8/10 hole oxbloods over the black version. The black version being popular with police at the time. If you struck lucky you could get a pair of Joe Hawkins Astronaut boots, a skinhead holy grail purchase these days.
Nowadays they are in the last days of sodom. Steel toecaps, patent pink, denim, tartan, embroidered on.... Just wrong wrong wrong....
Each to their own
I'm wearing these today
Dark blue velvet...
God has no say in my shoes
Probably wise given his penchant for sandals you'd probably be wearing Crocs or Birkenstocks.
I love Birkenstocks
Oh dear... Oh dear.... Oh dear.....
