We all have stories from our past that we'd really rather not relive—yes, even in the sneaker world. Whether it be a shoe we once thought was cool but now look back and say WTF, or getting scammed on some we thought were original. The list could go on and on.

The Shoe Game recently got together a group of industry insiders to dish on just that, their most embarrassing sneaker stories. We hear one tale of a female who absolutely had to have some Skechers when she was younger (sigh), another detailing a purchase of some suede karate shoes (no really), and more.

To check out these first-hand accounts, simply follow the link on over to The Shoe Game now. We're sure you can relate to some of these.
