This is kind of interesting. Good use of his name for marketing reasons. I'm thinking he's on the path of Tony Hawk and the commercialization of his name. It's a great way to generate cash for the retirement years. Hope it all works out.

Hope they don't charge some extra 30 bucks for the signature model, though they are cool anyway!

As long as they have the crepe rubber soles, its a winner.

This is kinda funny, given the fact that I haven't seen Brian in a pair of creepers for a few years, now. I figured there must have been some horrible creeper debacle that made him quit wearing them. They do look like cute shoes, though.

I love creepers, but, I hate the color baby blue that is being used for these shoes! Why baby blue???? Red would be much better or a rich darker blue. Baby blue? Sorry Brian, but baby blue is horrible.

Respectfully,

Ross Mad

Hmm, I like creepers, but I feel kinda stupid in them. I'll try to find a pair with thinner soles.
I don't think they look too special, and I don't like the basic look of most TUK models...

I have a black suede pair but they're too big for me. Think I'm gonna sell 'em.

I wonder, when the Cats tour the US (you know it's gotta happen, c'mon), if there'll be seas of blue feet at the shows. May have to get a pair, just to add to the insanity.

I am not a subtle person so creepers rule! Plus I'm damn 5'6" so having 2" soles is comforting and crepe is better than any doc martin boot.

one more reason for creepers...4 yrs ago I was hit by a car (drunk driver) walking across a street and while I ended
up under the front bumper with a cracked rib, I believe my shoes saved
me from a worse fate as they propelled me laterally instead of vertically, then shot off my feet several yards away.

...magic shoes I tell you

I'm sorry but I think this is a horrible & corny idea. This path will never end.

I love the idea. I'm too tall for creepers though, they make me look like a giant... I go for the creeper sneakers these days. I hope they come out in a BS signature series...

BTW, Brian wore creepers down here in Feb, they looked great, esp the red ones.

I noticed the last few years of the Xmas tour he was not wearing creepers, hence my earlier post. I don't think he was wearing them last year at the Costa Mesa show either, but I'm not 100% on that one. I thought the super tall ones he used to wear, like in the "Live from Japan" dvd looked a little silly; it seems to reinforce the fact that he is not very tall, rather than making him appear more tall. Just my opinion. Smile

A considered opinion : Once you hit 30 ,creepers look kinda silly. I speak as one who wore creepers as a young Colonel of a cavalry regiment during the Napoleonic wars.

Hey Guys & Gals,

Shocked Wow first post in a while, hope everyone is ok and things are cool! Wink

Anyway...creepers, I love them and wear them most of the time but I have to say that I don't like the 'TUK' brand. I have had two pairs of TUK's over the years and find that they are not as well made as the 'Underground' brand.

I usually wear double layer soles but I recently bought Underground black suede with a single layer sole (with quilted tops) and I'm loving them!

Cheers PP pirat

I think creepers are alittle "flashy" for my tastes. Plus the soles would probably make me feel like a giant, I'm only about 6 foot. I will stick to boots and slip on vans for my footwear Smile

NO Creepers after 30? Whaaaa? You can wear anything(well almost anything) if you have the confidence--it's "all in the way you wear your hat!"--I do notice when I wear my "black and whites" everyone's eyes go right down to my feet! hahaha

If I am to believe Wikipedia, Creepers were invented back in 1949 but I have yet to see a picture of someone wearing them in the 50's. And when were the pointy-toe ones put on the market?
Anyone know?

UK Teddy Boys were wearing them in the fifties, I have some pics somewhere. And my dad bought his first pair in 1954, when he was 13... Cool

There are some brands who sell creepers with "low" soles, so we donīt look like Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

I have a pair of TUK, but they are cheap quality to me; in my opinion the BEST brand speaking of quality, is Shellys. They were number one sales here in the 80īs and 90īs.

They are from London. I remember they had a HUGE store, 2 or 3 levels if Iīm not wrong... in a main street downtown. Not sure if they continue making creepers though.
