Steve Vai's shoes?

Of course they aren't his shoes but they are very JEM777 like.

I saw these the other day while shopping. Thought most of the users on the forum would like 'em. They are bright neon and have various colors usually considered quite feminine on most things besides Steve Vai's guitars.




I wonder what a swirl shoe would look like?

But you know, they look really Care Bear like too now that I think about it.

Re: Steve Vai's shoes?

Are those shoes for adults or children?

I'd love to go to Japan!

Adults. And that was just one style. There are others, many others in many colors.

First one looks like the shoes Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II.

Nike is way ahead of you, they already did a shoe inspired by the McFlys last year:

it's the same shoe Kobe and Yao wore to the olympics, but in a BTTF2 colorway. They are currently going for the price of a beat up Jem777, IE upwards of 700$

I would wear these with my 777DY...


if I didn't already own the Reebok Senna:
