Jeans = boots. Sneakers = Athletic wear. Jeans + sneakers = populous.

My sneaker recommendation? "Don't."
post #18 of 39
Harsh words. I understand the hostility towards the American Jackass crowd and their taste for weak retro kicks, but my tshirts, hoodies, and track jackets (all pedestrian, I know - I hear the eyes rolling) aren't generally complemented by leather boots/laceups/loafers/etc... I need some sneakers, and my chucks need a rest. Those converse I posted above remind me of my super-emo Saucony Jazz(es). "Me and Liam, we gonna f*** you up." -The Jesus

You sir must obviously not exercise or hit the gym, ever. If I am incorrect and you do indeed exercise and / or attend the gym, I beg you to post a picture of yourself on the treadmill wearing EG's; that would be an interesting sight indeed. Jon.

I like speedcats.  I saw some really nice brown on brown speedcats at Nordstrom last week. I am also quite partial to Oakley 1320 sneakers.  They are very comfortable, good to drive in and also good for walking. I have a pair in blue, and am considering some in black as well. http://www.speedwaremotorsports.com/...leyShoes03.asp
These look kinda cool--is the sizing fairly accurate? How's the arch support?
Arch support is ok. Sizing is about average, but they fit a bit narrow. Adjusting the lacing allows you to alter the feel of the width pretty well, however. Probably my favorite pair of sneakers for driving and just kicking around.

Gimme a break. A guy without a single pair of sneakers in his wardrobe to be worn with jeans, if just for kicking around on the weekends = uptight twat.

Uptight twat, I could not have said it better. Jon.

That would be interesting, wouldn't it?  I don't frequent gyms.  For dry days there's a great running trail in the hills; for nasty days there's a Nordic Track in my closet.  For those activities I wear exactly what you'd expect: running shoes (Saucony Jazz, currently) and exercise shorts or sweats.  Since scnupe7 was asking which sneakers to wear with jeans, I didn't think this was especially relevant.

You know, I wear flip-flops in the shower, but I don't post here asking for style critiques, because no-one sees them.  I do wear old running shoes with jeans to kick around at home w/ my wife, or clean the kitchen, do laundry, work on the cars, etc.  But if I'm hiking or knocking about out in the country, it's Vasque leather boots; and when I go out around town wearing jeans, I go with monks, chukkas, or some Bass suede lace-ups.   "Fashionable sneakers" is an oxymoron to me, because I would never wear sneakers in any situation where I'm concerned about being fashionable.  It's OK by me if the rest of the world merrily disagrees with me on this; I'll manage to survive the humiliation somehow.

Completely disagree with you in everything else, but I do agree that the Vasque Sundowner is by far the best non-technical hiking boot there is. If you need real mountaineering gear, that's something else altogether.

Isn't the Jazz model Saucony's casual shoe? and therefore a sneaker?

No offense to anyone who owns/likes these, but DAMN those Gucci's are repulsive looking. (barf) Who approves designs like this?.?.?.? Seriously.
