acb mentioned black spot sneakers a while ago, and I was walking past Oxfam (in this half of the world, it's a gift shop, not an op shop) when I saw some No Sweat Sneakers, so I picked up a pair out of interest/curiosity/guilt/whatever else. These ones are made in Indonesia (didn't the black spot mob say they couldn't find anywhere suitable in SE Asia?) at a 100% union factory, where everybody gets treated real nice and so forth (medical benefits, even! remember those days?). They're about as (un)comfortable as a real pair of Converse All-Stars (they're not the kind of thing you'd walk for 3 hours in), so I reckon they're just fine.
