Is it OK to wear running shoes with jeans? - Page 2

post #16 of 70
Depends what qualifies as a running shoe. If you're talking about an Asics Onitsuka Tiger, then the right outfit can work.

I would never go running with jeans

+1. The only worse thing that comes to mind is wearing a dark suit with bright, white running shoes to and from work - which is, tragically enough, not an uncommon sight on the streets of Washington D.C.

...how true, how true

Empirically, I think you will notice those who are well dressed aren't wearing running shoes with jeans.

personally I don't like the look. If its a really nice pair of running shoes and a pair of baggy street style jeans, it may work. Skinny jeans + running shoes give me an eye sore though.

No. You are mixing high tech with rustic, in a bad way.

Slightly OT: Is it OK to wear bluchers with my track outfit?

Maybe if ur one of those extreme fitness dudes that likes to rock that look out of the gym :/

No thanks, it always looks terrible.

Absolutely not. Driving loafers, sandals, and good leather sneakers (whether they be designer or something inexpensive like Puma) are much better options.

I have to admit I did it in the past but stopped about 20 years old - many moons ago... Better don't...

Everytime someone mentions running shoes and excercise i feel the need to lie down a while and the thought of excercise soon passes.............
