My favourite shoes are Vans. They are very comfortable. I'm a size 39. These shoes cost 300 zl. They are black and white and have laces. They have hard soles and very good for skateboarding.

I'm wearing black sandals with white details from Copacabana.
I prefer to wear sandals because they're more comfortable for me, and when I use something else, my feet get dry, and I don't like it.
