That was my initial thought, but I wanted something that looked a bit more refined and would more easily go more places. I always see the Chuck-look-alikes do this better than actual Chucks, but perhaps I should take a look at some of the less common, non-canvas Chucks.

You could always design a custom pair of chucks on Converse's website using a different material like leather or suede. It's $75, which is a bit more than classic canvas chucks but judging from the shoes you posted it's well within your price range.

Other ideas are get a pair of slim-soled chucks, or switch it up with some Jack Purcell's.

Finally, if you want to go for a different design, I really like the look of PF Flyers Number 5's (I actually just ordered a pair):

Also to add, chucks have a 'slim' version nowadays

+1.

I really like the Lanvin bicolors if you're willing to spend that much:



I got these diesel's awhile ago and I think pretty cool:
