100 percent agree. Just look at Akamine Yukio, the god of grownups in sneakers. He wears classic vulcanized canvas types (made by PRAS in Japan) not modern running-type trainers. But I think you can wear any type of sneaker at any age, in the right situation.This side of the forum is mostly populated by people from the CM side of the forum (CM = Classic Menswear). Lots of people on that side of the forum have a somewhat "respectability politics" view of clothes. So grown men shouldn't wear sneakers, as sneakers are for children and people working out. Grown men should wear wingtips and sport coats and such.
It's not a view I subscribe to. Agree that sneakers can be worn by anyone.
I think if you visit Reddit's Male Fashion Advice, you may find more useful information on how to dress. Killshots are often recommended there for what they call a "basic bastard" uniform (they use that term affectionately).
I thought they looked great, until I looked them up and saw the prices.Anyone here ever wear Mephisto? Selling point is more comfort and support for walking all day. I have a dark brown pair and am now shopping for a decent-looking white pair. Better for us over-50s with feet that were "rode hard and put away wet" as the saying goes. They have a dizzying array of choices.

I like the Sperry/Vans/Converse look, or something leather that's easy to clean, and something casual that can be worn with no-show socks and shorts. I've been wanting to upgrade from my suede New Balance mainly because they look like gym shoes.What are you looking for in a sneaker?
