any thoughts on best color cup soles for the shell PA sneaker? i am going navy, just assuming white at the moment.
For Navy White is the best option. For most other colors I would tend to choose some other color.

white. Black could be ok. Blue could work or be terrible.

I’m thinking of doing red with marbled dark cognac. What do you think?

You are talking to a guy who dyed a lot of my sole edges on brown shoes red. I like it.

Please kind sir, enlighten us with your superior knowledge the one true path of shoe purchasing.
I cannot wait to see how the people buying these shell sneakers pair them and how they look. I am expecting much laughter but I will hold out judging anyone until then.

I was watching local news a few days ago and the man and woman were in a full length body shot (proper social distance as well) and he was young wearing a dark suit with brown sneakers and a bright white rubber sole and edges. I know that it is "in style" at the moment but, old fart that I am, I think it looks dumb.

They ought to pair with and as well as any other sneaker, no? Denim, casual chinos. I don’t know why you’d give 5 bills for sneaks, but I’m cheap like that.

probably the same way somebody would laugh at you for not wearing a three-piece suit every time you leave the house? Lol

One-month appointment today. I chose Chelseas

I think suede or CXL is a better match to the sneakers, personally, but I think as long as they don't push them to a super high shine they won't stand out as much as some think. Basically in a casual setting these could be a high patina shoe, just like a pull up leather.
Buffing to a super high shine might result in a look similar to the shinny vinyl Airwalks a friend had in the late 90s...and we ragged him about them.

I will reserve judgement until I see them on foot.
