Hello there... this is my first post here.
Im from Croatia so excuse me for my bad english and very little special terms knowelege.

This forum is great...i will be posting photos too


ok... i need to buy myself some shoes (those casual ones..i don't know right term...mix of shoes and sneakers).
I found these ones, try them out and they feel great... my concern is color...

http://www.skechers.com/shoes-and-cl...s_-_scenes/blk

I wear jeans all the time... and on top all kind/colors of tshirts ans shirts (summer) and also sweaters and long sleeve shirts and tshirts.... I especially like to wear shirts...
something like this: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/44/12...6abfa44892.jpg

I'm no expert, but I would go for loafers or boat shoes instead. Those shoes are not considered good looking here and I don't think anyone buys from Sketchers here. Someone might be able to provide links/pictures to better shoes. If you're looking for sneakers only, I would suggest Common Projects. They are relatively expensive, but well worth it because they will last and look great. Just be sure to choose the right ones. Hope this makes sense!

hmmm...

1. there is no place in Croatia where I can buy Common Projects shoes

2. that CP sneakers are very ugly to me... I would never wear something that looks like chucks... and it is very obvious where that CP design came from...

I'm not up to date with popular styles and what is fashion today...maybe because of that i can't find those to be a part of my shoes collection...

but thanks for your help bure...

anyone?....

yea, confused 'dress sneakers', or whatever you want to call them, are not well liked and will probably be called euro trashy or something. chucks are a classic design that's always been in style, but i think they're a little too casual for the collared shirt and sweater look. so i would agree with the loafer/boat shoe recommendation.

yep...euro trashy


loafers are great...and i will get myself one pair for sure... but they are like spring/summer look to me... am I wrong? Are they good winter choice? (not much snow here...max inch or so)

and I know u ppl hate skechers...try to forget that for a second
and tell me wich one to buy... black or brown


Here in europe (south eastern parts)...skechers are young peoples choice for casual wear...yeah, you can say we have no style....but thats the way it is...

those sneakers are horrible...Go simple, classic: Sperry Topsiders, Vans Authentics, Addidas Originals, Converse Chucks/Jack Purcells, Tretorn Trainers, or go boatshoe with some quoddy trail or sperrys.

Thats your problem right there. Chucks are better than sketchers any day. Not to be mean, but you mention you are from Croatia. Dude those sketchers look like fake Diesel shoes that some some cheesy european would wear with some Diesel jeans. That look even if it was authentic is garbage. Don't be that person, be a better Croatian than that. Im agreeing with bure that loafers would be a much better option.

Am I even going right way?
I never wore something without laces... how do they stay on? (sorry about silly question)


Sorry, but I think those are all pretty damn ugly.

Top-Siders with jeans:



There are a lot of different colours available.

Or wear classic sneakers as suggested above - I like Onitsuka Tigers.

If you're going with Sperry, about the only thing worth choosing is the Original Brown. Stick with classics and originals.

I think generally you're right, but I am really fond of these ones as well. I also want to add a pair of navy.

Just Nudies. Hardly worn.
