Dressy sneakers, if such a thing exists - Page 4

post #46 of 53
Do not wear boat shoes. You will be wearing them everyday and they will stink. I believe this also applies to loafers.

CP or MMM Gats would work

+1. I think there are few choices that (i) can be dressed down or up (I´ve seen these paired with sportcoats in Europe), (ii) are comfortable, (iii) are reasonably durable, (iv) are readily available, (v) fit in with your age, and (vi) won´t cost you big bucks.

Even so, these are more comfortable with good third-party inserts such as PowerStep).

Also, since you are walking a lot you might want to ditch the sf approved sneaker and get a pair of brooks that fit your running/walking style. They will be easier on your feet and are made of mesh so your feet will breath better.

DO NOT TAKE ONLY ONE PAIR OF SHOES. You can stuff your socks in the pair you pack.

Of the top of my head I would pick a pair of dark tan Sebago Schooners and a pair of black Stan Smiths. But if it were me it would be Chestnut RM William Dynamic Flex boots and a pair of Hanwag Puros.

If you want low tops, something like this..

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

and if you are more of a ankle high sneakers kind of guy, these are pretty simple and slick imo.

I'm going to be traveling for about a year or more, and unfortunately can't carry more than one pair of shoes—that is, I only have space on my feet to wear them, since there's no space in my backpack.

 

I'm looking for a pair of sneakers that is somewhat dressy, or at least looks more stylish on the street than some regular set of sneakers.

 

  • I want to be able to walk around for a while in them, so they have to be comfortable and somewhat durable.
  • I want to be able to look pretty good while wearing them, so they can't be just a regular old pair o' Nikes.

 

Does such a mythical thing exist?

If such a pair of shoes was designed and issued, I would buy one...
