Hi, I have a pair of grey slim suit trousers which I would love to wear casually. Now white Chucks aren't working and white sneakers are ok'ish. I am still struggleing with the rest of the outfit as everything with collars is looking great but gets my way too much into the smart direction which I don't want. Ideally I should be able to wear the outfit in a dark technoclub looking just stylish but not smart. Hope this makes sense.
Thanks for helping,
Jens

no. wear nice shoes. nothing wrong with being the best dressed in your group.
the fanciest pants you should ever wear with sneakers (and a nice pair, not chucks) are chinos...for a casual summer beachy look.

Brown suede chukkas are about as casual as you can reasonably get away with.

How ya figure? If you buy a quality pair of suede shoes they'll handle rain and everything else just fine.

After 24 hours partying (or more?) nonstop I think at least 50 people will have stepped on my feet. :(

Any brand you can recommend in particular? I had some Frank Wright which looked great but did not respond too well to the wet conditions here in Hamburg when I moved here two years ago.

I'm in America, so I have brands such as Allen Edmonds and Alden, among others. Alden makes fine suede shoes, but they maybe too cost prohibitive in Germany. Crockett & Jones, Carmina, and others are European brands that use good quality suede that can handle being stepped on by 50 people. That being said, I'm not sure why you'd want to subject your suit pants to that kind of abuse either!

Clearly youre pretty young and talking about raging all night at packed dance clubs.
In that case, you should find cheap shoes that IMITATE shoes by vass, alden, crocket and jones, allen edmonds, etc.
Wear them a few months and replace when they are ruined. Get some polish and a brush to keep them presentable.
No sense buying nice shoes to ruin.
i bought my son his first pair of good shoes when he graduated college and got a real job.
And i told him, "they are NOT for the clubs. Theyre to look nice with a suit at work. Wear your crappy shoes to the clubs"
I destroyed some nice shoes in my youth that way ;-)

Thanks for your answers but I was looking for some advice on how to wear sneakers or any other than smart shoes with grey suit trousers. Something like on the photo. So I wouldnt have to worry about wrecking expensive shoes in the club and still look good

Those aren't suit trousers; I'd recommend sticking with finding more casual pants like those.
