    Right now I currently wear straight leg pants and avoid anything with a taper. This helps to mask my big feet somewhat but they still look weird. What style of sneakers would be best? I tried stan smith's but they were terrible.

    I'm going to move this to "Menswear advice", which was created with exactly this type of question in mind.

    As for specific suggestions, maybe something like common projects, which are low profile and sleek, might be good for you. Barring that, maybe own it and buy yourself some Rick Dunks.

    Probably something dark (not necessarily in a solid color) and not bulky. Please start with a size and a budget.

    Definetely not Converse or Pro keds and not in red. Sneakers , tennis shoes or running shoes should not be worn by a well dressed man unless one is engaging in stated activities. As one who grew up wearing jeans and T-shirts this was a hard habit to break. A man over fifty looks ridiculous in Converse All stars of any color unless he is fishing or trying to escape from the nursing home. Get a nice pair of AE monk straps or brown suede and show off those big feet.
