The only sneaker I've thought did anything for a fit was vans. At least they have some historical cache to them. Never been impressed by cp, nb or any of the ridiculous, velcro'd up Jane Fonda jazzercize holdovers so popular right now.
A little late to this discussion, but NB has as much cachet as Vans, if not more. When I was a kid in the 70s and 80s (ahem), NB's were only worn by the rich kids b/c they were so expensive vs. Nike/Adidas.
New Balances are stupid and you all put the newb in newbalance. (whaddup burndtjamb) Also the Soloist did not look good with the NB's they looked fucking stupid and ruined every look from the knee down.
