It might not be too late.

Buy a billion pairs buddy.
You know you could/would.

Muncheladen!

Lilith said...

Shame...
Maybe you could buy some nasty used ones from eBay :P

Sorry about your shoes, but don't wear Wonder Bread bags. The Milton's Multi-Grain bread bags are purple and would look better.

I was born in New Jersey. I saw my first show (Agnostic Front at City Gardens)in Trenton. I saw a lot of other bands there as well. At one show someone set a band's van on fire. See what happens when people drink Bud.

I'm sure you thought of this... check online for discontinued shoes and stock up if you can. A lot of times outlets have discontinued models.

You could also have all your fans/disgruntled customers complain to Adidas.

Cucumber said...

Hey! You're cramping my style man.

;]

Andy said...

I'm sure if you tell us what model they were you'll end up with some eventually from a fan ;).

AFI fans work that shit out.

Also there are stores that specalize in carying only sneakers and will probly have some of them. Good luck with them.

girlisgrey said...

JADE!!!
I did the right thing by buying your shoes 2 years ago. I saw them on you and could not resist.

I'm not sure they are the exact ones, cause mine are womens, but hey ;)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sgschick14/h.jpg

YES, That's Adam :)
it was funny, I ask him to sign it and he looks at it for a minute like "hey...I have those..." cause doesnt he also have these?

but yeah. good day, Cali Music Awards. I didn't see you there!!

Jade you are the only one I have not met yet, we gata do something about it!

love ya
- Bella

tragictrust said...

No way! I wear the same shoes too, and I was thinking about ordering some new ones. No they can't do that. I loved those black and white shoes, and it was because of you that I loved those black and white shoes. The world is truely going to end.

Shine said...

That sucks, they were like, your signature shoes.
You should find somewhere selling off old stock and stock up.

Morti Viventi said...

What size do you wear? I have a spare pair, which I'll never wear. Wow, I'm like the poet laureate of shoes.

That style seemed to be very popular, I don't see why they discontinued it. Perhaps we should start a Shoes For Jade Or Something Foundation.

Joizey, eh? Watch out for them stellas. Some people call them guidettes, but they're totally stellas and you know it.

Finchy said...

If you think about it it doesn;t really matter, coz you can make anything you wear look awesome... coz you're cool like that.

Im at home... I feel a million miles away from civilisation, it's kinda nice that way.

This Girl said...

Jade im in Jersey also...come visit me when youre finished.

Im sorry about your Adidas :[ how sad.

wrmfzykty said...

Welcome to the Garden State!!!! I'm so excited that you guys are here. Unfortunately, I will not be able to hop over to NYC tomorrow, but my thoughts will be with you all day.

Love
Kty

P.S. Drop in to any Foot Locker..they have scads of stuff for your tootsies!

jen said...

one word.
Ebay.

Gizmo said...

*points and laughs* That sucks! You could get lucky and find a pair somewhere. I can totally see the Wonder bread bags becoming the new trend for the summer.

stella said...

Awwwwwwww! Not the Jade shoes!

I was in class the other day, and I was resting my head on the desk, and out of no where I see those shoes walk by so I was like ASPOIUPA2A8ASKJ! JADE'S SHOES!

You know, I always thought that you're like cartoons, where they open their closet and they have 200 pairs of everything the same. 200 pink ties...200 black pants...200 pairs of Adidas shoes...

3 Arrows said...

You could wear golf shoes.
Or you know what? Just wear these on stage http://www.sportsauthority.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2082715&cp=&pg=2&origkw=nike+footwear&kw=nike+footwear&parentPage=search

Pretty_Much_Totally_Awesome said...

awwww, im sorry they stopped making your shoes. That was like a trade mark for you too, like you always know that it is Jade when you see those shoes.

You know what? I paid $127.85 to see you guys in new jersey today...where am I right now...East Durham...NEW YORK! Will I be there...no. Why? Because no one loves me enough to bring me! and I was told at the last second that I wasent going. :( Also i tried to get tickets to the listening partys and trl studios...nope. the world hates me and my obsession with you guys.
oh well, I still love you guys.
Much Love
Sarah

havey_angel said...

Oh, what a pity...

Mel said...

OMG! They couldn't do that... not to you... not with your precious shoes!!
What now? Poor baby...
Changes are always hard, but maybe you can find a new best shoe :)
Maybe you should do like Hunter and Adam... surrender to converse (all star rules)!
Good luck with your search ^^


ps: maybe someday you'll do a post like: "oh! i'm in Brazil by the way"... that would be great ^^

ps2: love the way your hair is now... crazy and full of style!

<3

jen said...

There you go, shoes.

l e a h said...

aww thats tragic
and im in CT
even more tragic

Cone Hat said...

It's good to see that even though you are touring, you still have time to, you know, go on your computer. But what with the whole wireless internet thing, anything is possible.

As for the lack of Adidas shoes, you will have to find a new trade mark. It's the end of an era...for your feet.
Speaking of trade marks, you should copywrite your Jadeburns. Or make synthetic ones and sell them. Oh, you'd make a killing. Selling them in little packages. Even girls would start wearing them.

See you the fuck in the T-dot, brah!

'Lectric_Lauren said...

Aw that means you won't look as Jade-like any more :(
I say you turn to converse, men in converse is hot hot hot

Dance in my misery said...

dont turn to converse, too many people have them.

silly girl :)

Caroline said...

Ebay.

That place has everything. I bet they have the shoes. Go buy a bunch and stockpile them.

I did that with my Doc's.

secretshow said...

and i'm in pennsylvania. being that i live here. rad.

secretshow said...

you know, personally, i always found converse quite ugly. everyone i know thinks i'm insane, but oh well. i've worn the same pair of vans for three years and i love them. :)

Katelyn said...

Your not alone in your devastation.....my Astro Pops got Discontinued too...

White Knuckle Weekend said...

Withouth them, you will no longer be able to walk through concert doors and roam all over coliseum floors.

Amanda said...

First they stop making your shoes, and then YOU'RE IN NEW JERSEY!?

Are we having a bad day?
Don't worry. I'm sure now that many many fans will send their shoes to you. (Weird, but it'll probably happen!)

Jessi said...

ACTUALLY! They didn't. I saw a pair in the mall JUST LIKE YOURS today.

I was thinking about sending you a pair. Seriously.

a hopeless insomniac said...

Sic Smith on them.

Girls Don't Cry said...

I love you. XD

Wonderbread Bags. God, how do you think of such things? You make me laugh. A lot.

I've never been to New Jersey, so I can't say anything clever. Just pretend I did, 'k? 'K. Great.

Suicide Bride said...

your posts make me smile =)
xxxxx

Elizabeth said...

those Adidas are very relevant for you?.....if they are sorry about it man.
why don't you play barefoot?.

Buena suerte en new jersey

Miss Murderess said...

No more Adidas? No fair! I like (and wear) those shoes. Oh well... I'll get ya extra comfortable Wonder Bread bags. Or maybe some those fake Adidas. They have a lot of them around here.

Good luck in New Jersey!

Ebon said...

haha i just got home from seeing you and being crushed into the rail tell davey thanks for looking at me or i think looking at me and giving me the strenght to make it till th end of the show and stumbing away to my brother's car. can't wait to see you guys tomorrow in NYC rest up see ya tomorrow!

youthinasia said...

Aw how sad..but on the bright side maybe your shoes are like beanie babies and how they were so much cooler after they "retired". So they'll be even more infamous and legendary and sought after and Jade Puget-y. But then again you're not 8 and it's not 1995..I must say that duck billed platypus was pretty cool though. What was its name? Patty?

rebecca said...

aww!! weak!!!

i wear those adidas at work! :(

kat said...

That's really unfortunate, yet also intriguing. I've never seen you in any other shoes, so I was just assuming your feet actually wear adidas shoes. Also, did you know that Donnie Darko wears in them? I saw them in while watching the movie and I was like "Jade shoes. Rad."

Meera said...

Not the Adidas Canvas shoes! I've been wanting to get those for a while now, but have been too lazy to actually go out and get them. This is a wake-up call. Ebay, don't fail me now.

Desert Queen said...

Awww, they stopped making them? Those shoes were like, the Jade trademark! Wonder Bread bags are cool too, though.

Damn, I wish I was in New Jersey. Unfortunately I'm on another continent. =/

Sebastian, Saint said...

I figured you'd pulled an Isaac Mizrahi and stocked up. Sorry to hear the bad news.

I suggest Macbeths to make up for the loss.

Darlene Conner said...

poor jade! :(

about the shoes and jersey. haha.
<3!

idanceinmisery said...

...bread bags...very original..:)

Gregorison's Girl said...

that's upsetting as hell
i'm taking the rest of the day off. i'm sure my boss will understand.

Mrs. Hoek said...

That's anus.
Well...there's always different kinds of shoes.
try Irregular Choice...they're funky.

ShellEy said...

THATS CRAP! The black Adidas with the white stripes? Those are the best! I have some Sketchers that look just like that.

Oh and I just saw you guys on TRL :] That little dance thing you did when it was about to go on commercial was funny Jade!

This Girl said...

saw the Miss Murder video about an hour or two ago.

Absolutely loved it.
great job to you guys.
<3

leigh said...

say hey to kevin smith.

aaaahh said...

sorry to hear about the shoes....try ebay?...anyways the video is amazing. truly beautiful.

mollie said...

How many pairs of those shoes have you? You could start a rotation through the well enough ones? Or Ebay.

I hate New Jersey. Last I was there, the prison across from us had more places to go than our hotel. Oh, Newark.

How is it that you get 3855447 comments and I have none on any of my posts? I'm a loser.

Fluffo said...

Beautiful; I actually found a pair in the Staten Island mall right before Bamboozle; they had red soles.

I had a wonderful picture of you doing your little ninja spin.
And, of course, none of AFI's pictures came out.
The other thirteen did. I've never been so disappointed in my life.

You looked exhausted.

technologic said...

What is the world coming to?

No more Jadidas. :(

Todd said...

Haha. Loser.

Sonorous said...

Jersey is kind of creepy, in it's own little way. Home of the most godawful accents in the world.. but sweet.

nerpal said...

Lou from SIOA will spot you his. I saw him eyeing some Puma's early.

Gnarly.

Supreme General of Evil said...

Wonder Bread bags? Wow, aren't you a fancy boy? I'm poor, so I have to wear Wal-Mart Great Value light wheat bags.

Toby said...

No, you make sure to cover those feet with bags that are not see through. Last thing we need to see is your feet..

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

Find some of the last ones and stock up brother. I hate how she styles only last for like a year or two. But them adiddas were friggin' classic man. Mail them a letter bomb or make your own. One time at my old school some kid's dad volunteered to help out and he was hearing wonder bread bag socks. It was hilarious. Later<333

chelsea said...

that's not good!!

i will sorely miss them.....but, you shall look good with bread bags for shoes!

Girls Don't Cry said...

Bread bags are way sexier anyway.

Chelsea said...

Know what?
I DO get to see you guys play.
In June...on the 20th. ^_^

Also, I hope you take the wonderous bread out first. (though, it might be nice in there)

People are lying about you, and other people are believeing it.

Asinine. (hehehe)

jadedgeekgirl said...

damn, that sucks.
On the other hand, Wonder bread bags aren't so shabby........Free shoes with America's favorite bread!

xvinsanityx said...

that is sad..i have a pair of campus 2's like yours and it took me FOREVER to find them

Kelly said...

They stopped making them? Well I was in New Jersey too. I saw you guys play at Bamboozle. That show was hella' sweet.

blackviolet said...

Youlooked really nervous on TRL. Were you?

Under Saturns Shadow said...

thats depressing. thats how I felt when I realized my AFI Vans were no longer being made. I think you could make Wonder Bread bags look good though.

P.S. Miss Murder was great. I loved the video.

JadeyX said...

Crapola! Dude! For years, I've wanted a pair of those shoes! Now they don't make them anymore!? Fuck that! *hugs you and your Wonder Bread bags* <3<3

Ahhmanda said...

Please come here more often, I would do anything. hahahaha.

WAIT, how does New Jersey remind that person of cows? There are like cows in my town just because there are some weird farmer guys, but in most towns there are no cows. Deer, maybe. not cows.

Frin said...

THERE IS NO GOD!
I was under the impression that there are a few different Adidas shoes with the same style, just different names. Hopefully you can find something that you like… but I think you could pull off the bread bags, you really are that rad (if people start to give you strange looks you could just play a blazing solo on your guitar and they would totally be won over. :)
What was the name of the shoes you had? Campus?

I'm all for the "Shoes For Jade Or Something" (SFJS) Foundation.. but I'd like it more if the acronym spelt "Spiffy".
And to all those who recommended Converse All Stars, have you actually worn those things? I wore a pair of my friends for a day and found they are so uncomfortable! Vans are the way to go. *thumbs up*

her face is so illogical said...

brings a whoooole new meaning to "loafers"

ha
ha
ha

okay, I just made that up can you tell?

<3 Sam

Lisaa said...

AAH.
the world will end.
i think i might cry for you.

and hehe.
jersey is awesome.
why?
because i live there.
and i saw AFI at Bamboozle.
i almost couldn't breathe but it was worth it.
=]

Alyssa said...

Yay for New Jersey and Bamboozle!

You guys were definitely the best band there, and the only redeeming quality of this Skate&Surf Festival knock off.

adri123 said...

is it going to be a white wonder bread or wheat wonder bread bag?

omgCAT said...

I love those adidas.

wear polka-dot vans instead.

Bettie von Grim said...

i lost my gazelles 2 years ago. i tryied to die, but it didnt work, so i just bought sambas. :(

Lori said...

Aw, come on Jade, you know you would look good in just about anything. But don't eat wonder bread...it's really bad for you. *smooch*

Lori said...

Oh yeah, and fuck New Jersey. New Jersey can suck my butthole. lol.

afireinsidexx said...

that is upsetting, but adidas makes other styles similar to that. unfortunately they won't be the same. i will miss your shoes, but you would look good in any shoe you wore, even if they happened to be wonder bread bags!

raprink-specialty said...

that's sad.
you should have come to my town, when you were in jersey

kathykathy said...

i wouldn't go with wonder bread bags, dempsters' are much better.

Jazzy said...

You're kidding! That sucks eggs about the shoes. I was even about to go looking for a pair.. I was trying to look at your shoes at the HFStival on May 28th but I'm terribly blind =D I think I was annoying the people behind me cause I was the only one standing.. And on top of that I was screeching "uncle, uncle, take a picture of Jade pleaaaase!!!" while dancing around in my ghetto AFI shirt that I drew xD

Maybe you can get them to make you a pair cause you're a ninja =]

Well, in any event, hope New Jersy is fun! *cough come to Virginia cough*

Charlie Le'more said...

NO more adidas....i dont get it.
-o0oh i have a wonder bread shirt maybe you can tie that around your foot???

Tashaaa said...

AHHH WHy couldn't I have known of your site in MAY!!!! I'M SO CLOSE TO NJ!!!! in fact i used to live there but that's not the point.

oh yeah by the way some creepy and somewhat irritating girl named "cece" or 'stitches' changed your password so you could never get in here. I told her she was mean, but she just kept on insulting me. She said you were annoying her because you wouldn't write "JXC sucks" on your arm and instead you wrote "Hi. Can I have my password?"

She's really ignorant.
well, you probably won't be visiting this because of her stupidity, so that's ok. She should go play in traffic. Ok well, go rock out loud.

Avalon said...

Pulchritudinous said...

You wear Superstar Metals right? if you do just look for them when you're in Australia. They sell them everywhere in Melbourne. I got a pair a couple of months ago and my friend got hers just last month. Just look around. If you find the store Hype, you should be able to find them there. Hope that helps =D

HelloGoodbye said...

Why would they stop making adidas?!

Superduperspeedeelicious said...

Try ruby slippers. They're nice. Actually.. they're not. They're extremely uncomfortable and they make me trip and get laughed at... for that reason.
How many pairs you have?

Superduperspeedeelicious said...

Come see me and Ill get you some :D

lovingly hopeless said...
