There are shoes typical to particular genres....Converse to punk for example.

i just wear skate shoes, because i believe the only people allowed to wear them and not be posers are skaters, guitarist, and people who are both.

No.


EDIT: and if you buy a special brand of shoes for playing guitar, you are either:

a) the biggest ****ing poser on the planet.

b) completely stupid

OR

both.

dimebag sported converse so its not just for punk but generally when i play i wear my harley davidson boots cause you look like a total bad ass and when you're rocking the wah with them on it feels so right

I'm pretty sure there aren't any "guitar shoes". Shoes are just that, shoes. Maybe skaters tend to wear "skater shoes" more than people who aren't skaters, but just because you're not a skater doesn't mean you can't wear them.

Not really. I saw a vid from '86 with James Hetfield wearing them. Buckethead wears them too.

I wear whatever the hell fits, and I can afford. When you spend your money on pedals, guitars and amps, you have almost nothing left for clothes in general.

I don't get that whole thing with skate shoes having to be worn by only skaters. Everyone who wears basketball shoes can't play basketball.

And really, if you're choosing your shoes because you want to show off that you play guitar, you might wanna rethink that.

Personally, I like these:

It's all preference. I've seen guitarists who wear heavy boots and I've seen guitarist that don't wear shoes at all when they're playing. I usually play with only socks on or no shoes, but if I wear shoes, I just wear what I always wear.

Style's important, but everyone has their own and judging people based on it ala hardcore-skater-not-poser guy from the first page is pretty stupid. I wear Etnies, because they're comfortable, and the particular model (Bernie Seed Project) is environmentally friendly. I also wear Sperry's, which are, A, yachting shoes, and B, only popular in Eastern North Carolina, because they're comfy and they look classy, despite that I don't yacht.

Speaking of which, here's an interesting tidbit from a conversation I had with the other guitarist in my band today.

Other guitarist: "Dude, you're wearing a Hollister shirt? You look like a gay rich prep."
Me: "Hey, it was the first shirt in my closet. But yeah, that Metallica shirt, how much did that cost?"
Other guitarist: "Like $18 at Hot Topic."
Me: "Yeah, mine was $8 on sale."

I buy most of my clothes at Good Will and my shoes come from K-Mart. Hardly any of my shirts say anything on them. *Shrugs* oh well at least I save craploads of money.

Diesel shoes are the most comfortable for playing in.

John Frusciante wears them, as do I
And we will weave in and out of sanity unnoticed
Swirling in blissfully restless visions of all our bleary progress
Glowing in radiant madness
