Easily top 5 shoe. Thereís nothing better than looking down at your feet and seeing a fresh white pair. These are all in rotation and the ADV ones (except the clear ones) but I prefer the normal ones for sure

Didnít Rene Matherson (canít remember how to spell his name properly) rock shells hard? He was definitely one of the freshest skaters EVER

I feel shelltoes are becoming hot.
Adidas screwed up with the first skate versions. I recall feedback about them becoming soggy and deforming fast.
Met a friend skating them. He had the vanilla versions from your typical sports store. He was stoked on the looks, the flick, the boardfeel.
Got myself the slip-on versions with puffy tongue and they hug feet really well. Looking forward to skate them, but I feel I'll need replacements for chilling.

Is this your collection? I've mentioned it a hundred times, but the blacktoe/black sole are basically porn. I pray for those daily.

Yes they are. I have 4 pairs of the black toe ones. 1 to wear and 3 on ice. My outlet had them (and the 3ST04s) for $45 with 40% off so I went nuts. My Adidas outlet has had almost every skate model in for MEGA cheap. I could never find these at the skate shop here. One day they had Busnitezís for hella cheap so I bought every one in my size (same as the shells) we all did. 3 in this photo and went back and got more. so stoked

Edit - I will say that I am a sneaker addict. I have expensive Jordanís and rare Nikes but my real passion is getting a bargain. Itís like a drug. Do I need multiple black toe shellys? No. But I canít say no! I would punch myself in the balls later for not buying them all in my size ha!

Haha awesome. I love the determination!
Some of my favourite photos. It had me on the hunt for white/gum ones ever since.  Is Gino actually on Adidas or is he just a free agent?

never been a fan of shelltoes, but something about these on feet in these photos is making me want to get a pair
Me: I found skate Jesus.

Slap: Yeah, well maybe if he does the crucifix switch I will believe it.

i just superglue them and they're good to go. my only gripe with these shoes is that the tongue is connected to the toebox, and after you break the stitching on the side near the first stripe (which takes no more than 3-4 sessions) they get pretty loose in the front and you can see kind of like a gap between the toebox and the side panel. it doesn't affect my skating but i don't like how that looks, other than that they're perfect.
Yes, superglue.

I always have at least one pair of ST in my possession but have only skated one pair in my life probably 25 years ago. They held up for a long time (couple months of ollies and failed kickflips) because I superglued everything on them. At the time I was skating Puma Suedes (still do) and ripped half the sole clean off after front foot slipped off and landed toes first. Only other pair I had were white superstars so had no choice. Broke as fuck, gotta skate something.

I ran a bead of Superglue on a toothpick along every god damn seam and stitch. I used a toothpick to do it nice and not ruin the look. Took a while. Then I put them on, laced them up, and soaked the first few lace loops in SG as well.

Sometimes they even come with a metal ring/jewel/charm whatever it's called on the bottom lace (these things : http://www.ebay.com/itm/201466666452) which you can slide to the side and glue in place to protect the laces if you're gonna skate 'em.

I remember not liking them too much for skating, but they sure as fuck look good. I love Shelltoes so much.

By the way, all you suave motherfuckers, this is a thing now :
