yes, a Park sneaker on a black sole passes easily as a “non-sneaker” sneaker. You will be comfortable and very few, if any will notice.Hey everyone! It has been a couple of years since I was active on SF. Rumors of GMTOs and trunk shows brought me out from underneath my rock. For my old school weasels, the answer is "both, and some shell." For the newbies, please remember "fit is king."
Overall, glad to see things haven't changed. I hope everyone is wearing their shoes in good health. Like some, my purchases came to a halt in 2020. Also over the last year, my professional attire has shifted in quite the casual direction. That, coupled with on-going foot issues, has me considering a... sneaker makeup or two.
As many of you may recall, I've been the president of the anti dress sneaker fan club. That said I was hoping that a grey suede strand on white or black and/or a natty CXL courtside on brick would be a decent casual makeup. Am I crazy? Keep in mind chronic foot pain will drive you to almost anything.
Along those same lines, could a park with a copper upper and black sole be "hidden" enough as a semi dress shoe, for situations where you'd be on your feet at an all day event (e.g., where many would be in bad chinos and bad sneakers)??
And lastly, since I know this thread is better with pictures... this popped up on my phone as a memory from 2 or 3 years ago. Some oldy but goodies amongst my early stable of boots.
