Larry shoes!

All this talk about Edges' shoes got me wondering about Larry's shoes.
He was wearing big black shoes for the Elevation tour. But I've seen him in Nikes, I know he use to wear Doc Martens.
What do you ladies know about his footwear?

I'll bet Marina was just waiting for me to discover this thread. heh.

The big black shoes that can be seen in some of the photo shoots for the 2002 calendar (the month of February he's wearing them) are Creepers.

I've been wearing Larry shoes for awhile now, if you count the Black converse hi-tops I've been wearing since I was in 7th grade. I also bought a pair of Doc Martens (10 hole) and I just bought myself a pair of the black Creepers Larry wears. So, I now am a proud owner of Larry's shoes. heh. Several pairs.

My mother's connection is soooooo slow. *drumming fingers on desk*

Here's a picture of Larry's Creepers:

There are three kinds of soles for Creepers: small, medium, and large.

Larry wears the medium soles - they're two inch soles. The soles are the same as my Docs, so it's not so hard for me to get used to them.

I stand at over 6'1" with them on. heh. I'm a tall mofo. LOL

cool. thanks for responding.
I was so curious about these shoes that I had to go find them online. They are too punk for my taste, but cool nevertheless, esp. bc Larry wears them.

Actually, the medium soles aren't too punky - I wear them to school, as well as my Doc Martens. My students think I'm cool now because I have Creepers. Ha ha.

The Large soles are the punky ones - I think those are either 3 or 4 inch soles. That's too much for me. Two inches is about as high as I go.

Hey thanks everyone for the info on the shoes. Are these "Creepers" comfy????
I've never seen them before....are they a "Europe" thing? Or am I just a little behind in my shoe styles...
Also, is this link the only place to buy them????

Random thought here.... I went to type in my name and I typed in "moob" LOL

Anyway. Yes, Creepers are an England thing - they each have a little British flag sewn onto each shoe.

Larry has the suede ones - like mine. I bought them for $109.00 - you can check websites to buy them online, or you can check around to see what stores offer them. A friend of mine knew of a store in Huntington Beach, CA that had them so I went there.

As for comfort - I had been so used to wearing my Doc Martens, that it took a little getting used to having a shoe that doesn't cover the ankle. After the first initial "wearing in", they weren't bad at all. However, I haven't worn them for longer than 8 hours at work.

And, MG, I'm a 1/4 inch shy of six feet and I wear the "medium" two inch sole size. Go for it! I think the medium sized sole looks better than the small size, and besides, that's what Larry wears, right? Riiiiiiight.

I think it took about two wearings - they weren't uncomfortable for me. I think wearing in the Docs were a bit more of a pain, literally. The Creepers are fun. I'm just waiting for my mom to say something silly - but she hasn't noticed them yet. She thinks I'm a freakin' groupie - wait 'til she finds out I own the same kinds of shoes Larry owns... she thought going to the Clarence Hotel in Dublin was "groupie" enough. What-evah.
