    So I've been looking for some shoes and I'm looking for a specific style and shape. I want the toe to be relatively thin, rounded and slim. Leather. Brown. Thin outsole so that you can't see much rubber on the bottom. I want it to be like a leather sneaker, or some kind of hybrid. I really like the FEIT but $400+ is out of my budget. Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything similar is okay

    I like these FEIT shoes (but they are too expensive):

    I like this Hard Graft shoe as well but I don't like how the toes curl up (and they are expensive):

    I like the shape of this shoe's toe but I don't care for the brand and I want leather or a bit dressier:

    Am I looking for something that doesn't exist?

    Do you just want a brown chukka?

    Kind of. But I don't like the thick rubber soles. As well I want a lower profile one. Something a but slimmer. If this all exists.

    That is the idea. But I know why I'm drawn to the FEIT shoes now. The laces come down low towards the toe.

    Unfortunately, it seems as if the type of shoes you're looking for that look like those FEIT sneakers tend to be the high priced, designers sneakers.

    How about VANS?

    Yes. I've been looking into it and it seems that the only choices in my price range are shoes like the vans. I was just hoping for a middle ground. Something with less running shoes sole. So the search continues.

    I like the CPs too but I cant find anyone in Toronto that stocks then for me to try then on. On a side note, I found a brand called Swear that has a style that I like but I know nothing about their quality or fit.
