CONCERT SHOES: What do you wear?

I'm thinking about getting a new pair of shoes that's fashionable, yet give me support at concerts. What do you guys wear to concerts? Any suggestions?

Currently, I wear New Balance Classics ML525 in gray, but I'm not a huge fan of how they look, and they're getting old and shitty. I haven't had a problem with them at concerts yet, though.



I got some Gravis Slymz II earlier this year in gray, and I think they look spiffy as hell. Unfortunately, they have absolutely no support and have basically a piece of canvas for the entire body. I about near broke my toe at Amon Amarth wearing them.



Now, I'm thinking about picking up a pair of Vans Vore Classics in black, but I'm worried they won't support or protect my feet enough at concerts. Love the way they look, though.



What about you guys? What do you wear to shows? You go for comfort, or style? Or are you wearing those shitty white high tops since you're a neo-thrash kid?

Don't hate on New Balance. They're all I wear in non-dress shoe situations. Currently I have two pair, one shitty pair that if they get stomped on and covered in dirt like shoes are wont to do at shows (or whilst mowing the lawn, or whilst riding a bike, etc.) I wont care, and a nicer pair that I wear around.

Currently I only have one pair of sneakers and a pair of dress shoes and that's it.

Whatever my everyday sneakers happen to be when a show comes around is what I wear to a concert.

lolololol sometimes I think you guys are more fashion conscious than me.

somtimes I wear these



sometimes I wear these



sometimes I wear these



and when I go to a psychobilly show I wear these



...just all depends on what shoes I happen to have on that day, or the weather situation.
