To that end, does anyone have any suggestions about Chelseas that have rubber soles and look good while not being so hip that they'll be out of style in six months?


I just bought some Zegna Chelsea boots with a half rubber/half leather sole. They are pretty great, I must say. Zegna makes good shoes, I think they are made by the same Ferragamo people? I think. Will post a thread on that asap.

Doc Martins? I have 2 or 3 pairs of wingtip type that I guess one could pull off at the office. I match with some jeans but they could look the part in a stretch.

Sneakers and a suit? What next, black dress and yellow rain boots? :-p

I first suggest that you not wear a suit with sneakers. I would go a little more casual with a pair of khakis and a button down shirt since the dress code is business casual. I would pair that with sneakers from Common Projects or Lanvin.

Just take off the skirt and wear a pair of captoes. When you get home put on a pair of women's uggz boots to rest your little fellas

In the entertainment industry, it seems tennis shoes with suits are common. I've never been a fan of it myself. I look for any excuse I can to wear some of my favorite dress shoes, so, why tennis shoes? If I want to be more casual, I replace the suit pants with designer jeans, and keep the tie, shirt, and usually the dress shoes as well.

But I digress. When I was first being schooled in contemporary "upscale urban" fashion, I was taught that a pair of K-Swiss Classics are appropriate with any outfit, from a full suit and tie to a t-shirt and jeans.

I know they don't get very much love here, but I have had some Prada Sport and Miu Miu sneaker hybrid-type shoes. I hadn't tried wearing them with a suit, although I think you might be able to pull it off depending on the cut of the shoe and the suit. I would also second the Paul Smith recommendation; also seen some nice hybrids by Raf Simons, Jil Sander, Neil Barrett and Alexander McQueen for Puma. Are you looking for something like this?

I have a pair of Mephisto shoes that are more comfortable than any pair of sneakers I own. Look for the "Gaetan" Model.

I bought them last summer on the recommendation of someone here and they have been serving me very very well.

I walk at least 7 to 10 kilometers during work because a car would be useless with all the traffic present and leather soles and then after work at least another 10 kilometers are put on often the same boots and comfort hhas never been a problem.

You walk 20 km a day on leather soles?

I doubt any but my double leather soles would even last 20km, much less 20km a day.

I walk around 30 BLOCKS a day and prefer to do it in running shoes rather than leather dress shoes.

I think they look great with nothing.

Anyhow, Paul Smith makes a few "hybrid" shoes that may be up your alley. They look better in person than on the website -





these would be in black or brown, obviously -




I also think lacoste made/makes a wingtip sneaker that straddles the line.
anyone knows where i can find these white paul smith hybrid wingtip oxfords / sneakers? i want these i want these i want these !!!

I think I might be more of a sneakers guy than a shoes guy..

I'd also like to get to a point where, at the end of the day, the first thing I want to do isn't change into jeans and a t-shirt and either Red Wing boots or sneakers.

this is pathetic
