Most you ever spent on a pair of sneakers ? - Page 2

$200 for Icecreams?  No way man.  If they were on sale for, say, $50, maybe.  Besides, although Pharrell is awesome, my thinking is that unless you are actually a break dancer, DJ, or Pharrell, wearing Icecreams (especially with baggy jeans and a visor) put you squarely in the chav category.
They're shoes with neon money signs and diamonds on them. That's hilarious.

Agreed.

sneakers are ugly,
Completely in disagreement. The right pair of sneakers look complete jeans. IMO, a lot better casual option than pretty much any leather shoe (some casual boots and distressed laceups being the exceptions), and the light colors provide great contrast to darker outfit. May not be your look, but definitely not ugly.

Do thes ugly camper shoes count for "sneakers" too? Because I own one, though I usually wear them at the beach (in brittany). .luc
Who said we wore sneakers with suits? Old a dolt would do that. No, one wears sneakers with jeans, or casual linen / cotton pants. Jon.   I only wear flip-flops with my suits.

LA Guy, italian boots or "distressed" cap-toes from some (again) italian designers look better. "Moma" comes to mind, or Gianni Barbato. .luc

Like them too, but prefer plaintoes to captoes (actually, I hate cap toes, but that is for another day) - actually prefer round toes with a distinct instep (shoe guys, help me out) for a rougher look. Keep a pair of Pradas and Costumes around for evenings where sneakers are verboten or impractical (doing the tango in sneakers is asking God to twist your ankle.) Still prefer sneakers though, especially for the daytime. More comfortable, and more laid back. Maybe all those years in LA changed me irrevocably. But maybe not. I wore lots of sneakers before that too.

I've always thought jeans with blazer looked awful, with a few exceptions. I mean, is it professional, or casual? Add sneakers, and it is just intolerable (add a baseball cap, and it makes me want to commit homicide). Too casual to be appropriate for business, and too dressed up to really look very casual. The only thing worse is some rube in a pair of chinos and polo shirt with a trimmed beard. Hello, fax machine repairman. Would you like a Big Mac?

Personally think that this combination works best with a western style blazer. Sneakers work in this context. Add boots, and it gets way too costumey.

May be 120 euros when I was a teenager or a few years ago for a paire of Puma (110 euros) I remeber a pair of New Balance, James Worthy which were at 660FrF (100 euros)

I spent $150.00 on a pair of Air Jordan XIII Retros, but I'm a bit of a sneakerhead, so IMO volume counts as much as quantity.

$75 for my Nike running shoes that are replaced every 12-months. I tried to go cheaper 2-years ago... $50 failed experiment. Do Tod's trainers count as sneakers? I have 2 pairs of those... I didn't pay retail, but geez they are expensive considering how fast the little nubbies wear out. Next time, i'm buying Pirellis for my casual shoes, and Michelin's for my tires.

Prada Americas Cup, full price

$250 on a Nike Foamposite One(Penny) around 97, I think the market price was around 400 soon after it was sold out.

Prada car shoes, in khaki and cream, full retail ($350) to go with my black suit.
