"Those are in fact ECCO golf shoes. After some scouring, I found the model on Amazon:
...although I would think that the mock cleats on the bottom would be uncomfortable for everyday wear on pavement."
"I've worn New Balance, Adidas, and Rebok in the past and they have several (non-neon) colors that can be worn for every-day wear. For this go-round I wanted a pair of cross-trainers that had something similar to running spikes on the sole and I…"
"I guess you could say I was calling myself an old man since I was the one seeking those type of shoes. My boys just got some new shoes and they chose blue ones; it was a bright royal blue color but it is difficult to make blue a neon color unless…"
"Kindly allow me to withdraw my "dorky" comment. To rephrase, I am looking for a non-bulky, non-running shoe, non-cross trainer casual "sneaker" to wear with jeans and a sweatshirt. Something that is comfortable but not as…"

"Will give you an example of both form and function. I wear a pair of casual Sperry Penny Loafers but I think they are a bit too dressy when I'm wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and although they have a great rubber sole, they are not adequate for…"
"Yeah, having heard what happened to my two buddies, I'm resolved if I got boxed in like that I would just wait until they got out of the cars, then start ramming. Forward, reverse, forward reverse.... I wouldn't stop the…"
"It seems like these guys don't *try* to kill you. Swords won't work here, that'll escalate it. At most, a pocketknife, but it seems to be fisticuffs and clubs with these guys. If I had to run in with them, from what you're…"
