Standard Stan! I also prefer green to the blue, but whatever. The vintage version is nice, but shiny.

Wait, when did they start making the Vintage again? I was so sad when they started making them of that nurse shoe leather. Can you get the Vintage in green?

Vintage Stan, and Orion.

At first I liked the Italias for the black shoe choice, however, I think that the olive green would limit the shoe if you want to do an entirely monochromatic outfit or something. But I like both the Orion and Italia.

I'd say standard Stan or Superstars but with the black stripes and canvas.

Italias. Though I prefer Chile 62 for their colourways, construction, and unique touches (bumpy sole, 3 (THREE!) flaps, etc). The England 1966 version...

Getting off topic here (sorry OP), but I really expected nobody to pick up on the Fannies name/avatar. Guess I should have picked something more original.
They are still one of the greatest pop bands, Scottish or otherwise, out there. Forget about Belle and Sebastien. Great cartoon, bad pop.

I got into Teenage Fanclub because I heard they sounded like Big Star. I got into Big Star because of the Replacements song "Alex Chilton." I got into the Replacements because I was a loser in high school.
