    trying to operate on a budget...

    any suggestions for a good casual shoe (like a sneaker or something, but not a tennis/running shoe) for under 100 that looks good, but isnt totally uncomfortable

    mainly wear with shorts (texas summer), sometimes jeans

    and no jack purcells... everyone around here has those

    I actually dont see that many purcells outside of SF, chucks on the otherhand are everywhere. other than that, i'll suggest spring courts or even superga

    i think common projects has the nicest looking plain sneaker, but theyre upwards of $300.

    I'd recommend the Adidas Stan Smith. It's a classic, looks really good and is very comfortable.

    Check out Clae: http://www.revolveclothing.com/brandpages/Clae.jsp?&d=h

    Revolve also has the 15% off coupon on all the time, and with that, most of their line comes in under 100. Never owned a pair but would've had my balances been higher at the time.


    I like the berry. I've grown sick of wearing white, brown, and black sneakers. This pair of Creative Recreation Dicoco Lo was the last I picked up and they get a lot of love.

    +1, inexpensive, comfortable, and always relevant...can't go wrong with a pair of adi Stan Smiths. Adidas Rod Lavers are another option for a similar look and price.
