Go on The Iconic - sign up for 10% discount or something. They do free shipping etc.

I find they hold up well, very comfortable, but not would be my first choice if I was doing lots a walking.

They are designed (and marketed) as beaters.

Any recommendations where to get my churches resoled in Sydney CBD?

With regard to canvas sneakers, I haven't bought any for some years, but Country Road's canvas sneakers used to be pretty good, and well-priced, too, so it could be worth checking them out to see what they've got in stock.

That tie is gorgeous
Walked through the local Country Road store over the past weekend, and I can agree the canvas sneakers seem to still be pretty good. Discounted in store at the time, and currently online
worth a peek

I believe the least bad place is Coomb's in the Strand Arcade.

 

Inspected some of their resole work last week and it was pretty tidy.

If you like those Adidas canvas sneakers check out the 'matchcourt' model, similar design but really well built for the price IMO. Wasn't to happy with my Superga's when I had them the upper was quick to rip but pretty decent choice for the price; enjoyed the cheap Muji's as beaters last summer though and helps that they're around $35.

Never been a great sneakers fan - and perhaps erroneously formed the view that if you were over 17 you probably shouldn't wear sneakers and if you were over 35 you certainly shouldn't - but I may be slightly out of touch. Although I look at a the sad 45 years old or so blokes at gigs and around town trying to look youthful and hip in black jeans, sneakers and a band t shirt and can't see any urgency to revise my prejudices. Certainly if you are over 50 - don't wear sneakers.

I agree, and at very least don't pay over $100 for them.

disagree - I find sneakers look just at home with jeans than say boots or brogues. and on almost all occasions, comfier.
post #2700 of 3546
I disagree with Oli and fxh - so life as usual....

Sneakers can look good if done right. I have paid well over $100 for some pairs which I wear regularly and have had for years....in fact, I would consider another pair.

I am still under 35 but think if you go the right (simple, sleek, well made, classic style) you could wear at an age...even fxh's.
