New flat sports shoes for a decrepit wrinkly

Hi. First post.

I'm a 40+ and feeling it, and I'm looking for recommendations on a flat shoe in the skate vein for use when cycling + other sports related activities.

My usual casual shoe selection ranges from the reinterpreted 'formal trainers' of Paul Smith, to variations on the Caterpillar theme. It's been about 7 years since I've actually done an activity that is specifically sporting, and I have discovered on groping about my shoeboxes that a pair of C1rca flat shoes I bought in 2000 or so has disintegrated


So - what should I buy? I'm obviously not looking for something which screams 'teenager' or 'trying too hard to be young', but I would like it to be stylish. I've been looking around the usual suspects - the current C1rcas, Vans, Etnies, Globe, e's etc but I'm not seeing which really grabs my eye.

You should probably post this in Streetwear and Denim, they will be able to give you plenty of good advice. This branch of the forum is really more for business and formal wear.
