Shoes with jeans?

Zappos is having free overnight shipping right now and I was looking to get some new shoes to wear with my New Standards and ES Fultons. Right now, I'm wearing dark blue/red New Balance 574s, but I'm looking for something a little less mainstream. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Maybe be a little more specific in the type of shoe/sneaker you're looking for.

eccos are less mainstream than NBs, although still fairly mainstream. They have a reasonably wide range of looks and they're designed to be good for walking.

Where do you live? Weather always influences footwear.

Do they have to be sneakers? I've been wearing mostly ankle boots with my jeans lately.

There is no limit to what shoe you can wear with jeans. You may want to pair your shoes with what you are wearing on top rather than what's below.

Basically everything goes with jeans, so you're going to have to give the SF personal shopping brigade something more to work with.

Thanks for your suggestions and sorry about the double thread--I didn't realize my first one got through.
I'm in the midwest, so a more all-weather sneaker would be best.
masqueofhastur- I've looked at ecco, but I'm looking for something a bit more retro, with some color as well.
I've also been looking at onitsuka tigers but I recall them getting a bad rap around here some time ago.

I'd just look at the what are you wearing today thread for a few dozen pages. There are all kinds of things that people wear with boots. Sneakers, dress shoes, pointy shoes, chelsea boots, ankle boots, engineer boots, red wings work boots, high top, low top, slip ons, small sneakers, big sneakers. It's really hard to pick something bad with jeans. And all the thousands of outfits posted, there are plenty of ideas.

Or just wear em' with flip flops and call it a day. Jeans+flip flops = happiness

I take it the flame suit was put on before making such a bold statement?

Get the tigers. A lot of people have them but they fit really well with NS. It is tough for me to wear certain shoes with them because of the taper and my big feet. If you have smaller feet maybe go for some chucks/jack purcells also.

I second the tigers, I love mine. I agree with everyone that you can wear nearly anything with jeans, shoes wise. Personally I usually wear one of a couple pairs of long pointed leather shoes, several different types/colors of Pumas, Tigers, Geta (once or twice), and boots randomly.
