Prada Dress Sneakers?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
So after trying to walk around the city in Ferragamo driving shoes and Edward Greens I have realized that I need a dressy sneaker that I can wear with Chino's and Polos or Dress shirt/Sport Jacket. The only sneakers I have now are Nike Air Force Ones and New Balance Running Shoes.

My wife loves Prada sneakers for me, but at $300-400 I can't see it.

What brands look like Prada sneakers but are more reasonably priced- $200 or preferably less.

Also where do you recommend to buy them?

Thanks

What size shoes are you? I have some prada sneakers I bought like 3 years ago. They go great with dress shirts, or any dress pants. They are in pretty good condition too.

Prada makes probably the most durable shoes I have ever bought. Well worth the price.

Thank you. Those Paul Smith ones are pretty cool- I will def. check them out- but I would still like something a little more casual like a dressy sneaker also.

lol wtf, the guy said sneakers and you guys are posting leather shoes?

FWIW, I think that Italian high-branded sneakers are perhaps the silliest thing ever, but to each his own.

I have several pairs of Prada sneakers and they are both good looking and comfortable. While Prada is my no.1 sneaker choice, they are admittedly pricey! I was also going to suggest Paul Smith but checking the website link provided by the earlier poster, I do see some sneakers at your approx 200 or below target price but I can't really see anything very attractive. I own 2 pairs of handsomely cool PS sneakers myself and I think you will find a wider choice in the PS stores than online.

Thanks. My Italian high-branded sneakers always bring a smile to my face. Some will stroll through a casual day in Ecco, some in Prada. It's just a small choice of difference in style.

Those ARE sneakers ( no heel, treaded sneaker sole... ). Dressy sneakers, to be exact. That's what he asked for. Similar pairs, in the manner of the above Officine Creative model, are made by Burberry, Boss Black, HUGO, Dries Van Noten and some others and are always listed as sneakers/casual shoes...

Damned useless site takes forever to load so i nuked it from my browser. No sale.
Someone tell those fresh-out-of-school-know-it-all-pimply-faced site admins to lose the flash intros already.
I am an important man dammit, and I don't have time to waste.

Thank you clockwise, I have not yet seen anything that fits what I am looking for like the Prada sneakers I just feel that they are very overpriced for a sneaker.

Does Puma/Nike/Addidas make anything similar? What about the other designers?

I understand the tech definition of a sneaker might be those dress shoes posted- but I am really more looking for dress sneakers. Thanks
