i'm in need of some new shoes and the ones i see recommended on here are either adidas/puma/<insert huge brand logo on shoe here> or just inappropriate to wear casually with denim. i'm surprised there isn't more discussion here on shoes. anyone here have any recommendations for a casual streetwear shoe that doesn't have a logo? there's nothing wrong with it, it's just not my style.

Considered boots? What sort of things do you usually wear?

Common Projects. I have the Achilles in white. No logo, beautiful leather and the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn.

i have a pair of doc marten boots (old and falling apart, although they were made in the uk) but i feel like they don't look at all right with my rag & bone jeans. what boots did you have in mind? i'm looking for shoes/boots i'd wear exclusively with denim, but nice enough to wear out to a bar/club once in awhile.

You know, those look pretty nice!
Today I am wearing the Polo Tarlton II boots (double buckled). Ouch! $515 retail
Did you get them somewhere cheaper?

Damn, those are some serious looking boots. Looks like something you could be burried in.

Go for some Nike Dunks. Great color ways and easy to find, if you know where to look.

I'm surprised myself that aren't that many shoe guys on here as well. Love the jv chucks, the perfect comfy sneak to dress up and there is a nice variation in colors and textures like suede, corduroy and hemp (these are not jv hence cheaper). The construction is better and the shoes have more heft than standard chucks. Love the no laces look also. This is what I have

I also have these also to go with my brown herringbone blazer



I have these navy suedes
