I am 16 and am in public high school, this is what i own so far: Black Cole Haan Slip ons with white stitching patterns, grey and black custom PRODUCT RED converse, and a brown pair of lacoste sneakers.

I need new shoes but I cannot think of what exactly I need. I want something classic but has an edge to it. One more thing, it has to be under $120.

Thanks big time!

chelsea boots. see if you can find a brand new pair on ebay, and you might be able to get below $120.

Some sort of boot... a lot of people are probably going to reccomend Clarks desert boots in your price range. They can be had on ebay for 70ish.

he's 16, so don't dress him like his grandfather. op, you're probably a sophomore or junior in high school so sneakers are the way to go. the best options are to hit the local shoe store (really) or shop around online, citing vans or the like.

I am a junior but my wardrobe is anything from Giorgio Armani BL, to Emporio, to Rogan Gregory, etc.

The thing is I am out of money and I think the way to go are something that looks like a Neil Barrett show, do you think Filenes Basement in a wealthy area would carry some high end shoes at a good price.

He said no to DB's. On a similar note, I like Van's Chukkas, really pretty much any kind of chukka. When you say high end, what do you mean? Styling like Dior Homme or raf or more along the lines of the brands you mentioned?

I like Dior and Raf as well as GA, some EA and Barrett as I stated earlier in terms of the design and colors used. I do not want anything Brown as I do not have enough clothes to match with it, something with a pattern would be good, blacks, greys, silvers (shiny possibly), some white.

No no no, I never said DH/raf for <$120, I merely said something of like styling. Yes, I know even that is somewhat of a stretch.

funny, I think you'll find many people here that'll tell you that brown and its shades really make up one of the most versatile palettes. But if you're a Dior/Raf kind of guy I guess I can see why you'd be partial to the monochromes
