    Does anyone know what happened to white shoes in metal? At one time it was a pretty standard on stage option. I remember seeing it particularly in the old school era of FL death metal (I grew up in FL). You dont really see them anymore. Metallists have pretty much switched to all black.

    Anyway I was looking to get a pair of classic "Thrashers" and was wondering what some good options were.

    You can probably go to any big shoe store and find high top "skate" shoes from any notable skate brand that will suffice

    For Example:

    White shoes? Probably wing tips or boat shoes or something.

    If you can find them: Nike Vandals.

    Thanks for the tips. Those Osiris shoes would be great for DM and Nike Vandals have the classic ("Schuldiner") strap.

    Vans high tops were also suggested:

    After researching I am thinking Court Classics are also a viable alternative (see Rex and Vinnie).

    I would go Vans Pro Skate. Most comfortable shoes I've ever had (though mine are black).

    Better question: what ever happened to the tiny shorts?

    I’d rock tiny shorts. I’m 50% calves/thighs so that helps. Just with boxer briefs to keep everything secure and put away.

    White high tops, short shorts and awesome sunglasses need to make a comeback in metal.

    With lights in them. And shutter shades. Wait no, that’s Party Rock Anthem from like 2011. I went too far forward.

    Why is this thread if the beginners section? Because these are some advanced ass kicks. Maybe because the TRVE THRASHERS already have their stock up?
