This was one of my favorite brands of skate shoes when I was young and "like really, really unique, ya know?," but they have since then reinvented themselves as the environmentally friendly shoe par excellence. The "Barneys" in the commercial were my shoe of choice. Sap now has some of the newer sneakers and swears by them.
We should publicize the few good companies we find, right? Plus, I could win a free pair for posting this.
