Guys I need help..
Need some new shoes to wear in summer with shorts and a polo probably...
Sydney gets hot in summer and jeans become impractical when its 35 degrees celsius, I need shoes for when flip flops are too casual... Thus..
I am in university (college)

Which shoes should I buy I was thinking these looked pretty simple casual

Yeah I used to wear the dunlop volleys playing tennis when I was young so whenever I see people wearing their fashionably branded counterparts I can't get it out of my head thinking they're tennis shoes lol..
