    I'm sad to say, but my Diesel sneakers are wearing out, and I need to replace them with something else. I absolutely loved the fit of them (cacao's) but am quite disappointed that I've walked through the sole in a little over a year (with heavy usage). I'm hoping you cats can post some recommendations. The goal is strictly casual (think denim and plain tees, possibly cargo shorts and plain tees), but still classy. You know, a cut above all the other sneakers out there (so no obvious branding). Also, these will be replacing my "every-day-casuals" so a neutral color would be great (black/grey/dark olive).

    I've looked around and found one or two styles that look decent, hopefully this will help narrow the recommendations (basically low-cut, suede, slipper-esque sneakers):
    Puma Chioda
    Hugo Boss 19738
    Lacoste Mandarin Unicorn (although I think this is more of a driving shoe)
    Prada Americas Cup (if only it didn't have the glaring label)

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay, those are money. Where do I buy them? I've only seen Lavers in green.

    Chuck Taylors are always a good option. Maybe the Varvatos versions, if you want to be a little different.

    Zappos may have them, as may the online Adidas store. I've seen them at my local Adidas Classics store.

    Hi Guys, I was wandering, I'm thinking of getting these, just a pair of vintage Pro Keds. Over the last few days I have been searching tirelessly for a pair of deck/boat shoes w/beige/cream canvas. What do you think?...

    Pro Keds.

    Vans.

    Or are they a no go, a stay away?.

    Or would a pair of these be more recommended???...

    The problem with those shoes is that I'd wear them with raw denim all the time...... [​IMG]

    Jack Purcell's. The normal ones made of canvas are great, but the leather versions are even better!

    I tried on a pair of PF Flyer Center HI's while in LA and really liked them. The burgundy and grey in leather are NICE!!

    wearing these right now. can't shake 'em. also check out tretorn and the puma by rudolf dassler collection. also, the vans website has a ridiculous amount of cheap classics like pure white chukka's or crepe sole slip on's all around $50!
