I'm in the 40-49 age group.

I didn't wear them to my wedding though; sandals for that, actually.
What kind of work do you do where you can wear sneakers?

Zero and I'm in my late 20's. When I was a teenager I used to wear sneakers to fit in, but I never truly liked wearing them. I also used to wear other types of clothes to fit in, but in high school I adopted the "everyone be damned, I'm comfortable wearing the stuff I like to wear and everyone will have to just accept me like this" mantra. That was one of the best things I have done in my life. Its basically well fitted clothes. lol

True.

But I wish I could wear sneakers to work. That would be so cool. I went to private school where wearing sneakers was forbidden, so we used to try to get away with it in certain classes. Sometimes we got away with it, sometimes not. But wearing sneakers was always the forbidden fruit/comfort, as well as a mark of rebellion against rules. I still think of them that way.

Oh look, a place for me to talk about my PUMAs.

I've got three pairs. One "normal" pair with black suede and white stripes, and two racing/driving pair that are low to the ground and pretty much wrap around my feet. Love the design of them. One of those is white leather with gray stripes and the other is a dark blue suede with white stripes. I'm a little disappointed with the latter, as I expected the blue to be a little brighter when buying online.

EDIT: Almost forgot to mention: 19y/o male in college.

One. Completely falling apart. I actually repaired the heel end of one of them because it tore. Reason is that every time I go out and buy new ones, they look like nurse's shoes once I put them on and so I take them back. Very difficult to find good looking sneakers for men.
