    The topic says it all, btw it doesn't need to be something like Y3 or Prada america's cup. I would say my favorite sneakers are adidas superstar II in white with navy stripes.

    I like that this thread or something like it appears every three months. Right now I'm enjoying my Converse Varvatos WC IIs in Brown/Green All time favorites - Black Chuck Taylor Hi. ahem - Runners up: Adidas Rod Laver Converse Jack Purcell Saucony Jazz Not far off the standard, I'm afraid. Somewhat on-topic: Is calling them "sneakers" v. "tennis shoes" a regional thing?

    My various grey New Balance running shoes.

    That said, I do wish that I could find more brands of sneakers in wide sizes.

    Chuck Taylor Low
    Jack Purcell
    Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66
    Puma Mihara Yosuhito (8 and 5 are my favorites as well)
    Y-3 when affordable
    Vans (officially tagged "Old School" now)

    I have never in my life owned adidas shoes. It's a complete accident though, I wore black Chuck Taylors and black Vans exclusively from 1st grade to till freshman year of college.

    Those Y3s are nice. I also like Pradas, Pumas, and Guccis (whatever few they make)

    TM, I've seen Asics and Nikes, but the I liked the appearance of the Asics less than NB, and Nikes run so narrow that their idea of wide is closer to most brands' medium.
