    Jack Purcell? All Stars? Vans?

    I'm looking for sneakers to go with jeans, something I can just put on that matches without me having to think about it. The Jack Purcells look good but they don't seem to have much support - is there anything else that's comfortable with arch support?

    Onitsuka Tigers are the best mix of comfort and style, in my opinion.

    I have a pair of adidas darogas that are very comfortable.

    Sambas aren't bad if you're not doing a workout in them. And they aren't in the currently-overplayed rack either.

    The tigers I have are so uncomfortable - they have no support. It is just a flat sole with no padding at all.

    +1 on the Samba's.

    Agree they aren't a workout shoe. But they look great with just about anything. Really nice with jeans or a suit if that's your style. And cheap too.

    You must have the Mexico' 66.
    The other classic Tigers model, the Ultimate 81, is so comfortable that apparently many people use it for weightlifting.

    what do you mean by casual sneakers? do jordans count? my 5s are the most comfortable sneakers i own.

    the apc nikes are really comfortable too... leather lined and leather insole.

    Samba's.

    And to disagree a bit with the guys who say these aren't good for workouts: I played indoor soccer for a few years and always wore samba's. They didnt' seem too bad at all - grippy and fair levels of support. Maybe my arch is a bit lower than most, but I had no problem using them for athletics.

    I like Puma Hesselburgs. Nice leather, and pretty comfortable for a thin soled flat shoe.

    pf Flyers

    They're styled similar to Chuck Taylors, but they have much more support

    Adidas Italia, in white. They're my go-to shoes for most days when I don't have time to think.
