I'm getting really desperate, so I've posted this over the other SF too. I need help
I'm looking for two pairs of shoes, one dressier and one pair of daily shoes. I've been wearing the same beat up adidas for more than a year and they're really getting nasty. I've tried on soooo many pairs of shoes from converse to carpe diem and nothing looked right on me. I have long feet (12/45/30), maybe that's why. So far the only shoes that I almost bought were Yohji hi-top sneakers and Jil Sander dress shoes. I also saw some cool (sample) Avoid gray dress shoes with blue patten leather accents, might have to ask them to give them to me I have an unlimited budget (sorta...I'm that desperate) so give me all the suggestions you might have. Here's a few points to help narrow down the search. Dress shoes: - Nothing pointy - Nothing square - Boots are prefered, but it doesn,t matter too much - Suede is cool (in gray it's very cool) - Nothing falshy (distressing, laces, etc.) Sneakers - Nothing pointy - Nothing square - Hi-top prefered - No very big logos (aka nike) - No german army sneakers Sorry, if this post makes no sense at all... I'm tried. Thanks

Just a friendly FYI.. the non-sneaker question may be better posed in the Men's Clothing forum. If I had an unlimited budget, I'd go with some Edward Green.

Yeah, maybe I should post there too, but my unlimited budget might be still limited for their price range and my clothing style is a bit more excentric than their suits, so it porbably wouldn't be right. I don't want "classic" dress shoes either, just a cleaner pair of shoes, something I could wear with my usual clothes, but that looks nice and is made out of fancier materials than sneakers, but nothing like loafers
. Argh! I can't type coherent senteces this afternoon...
