Mid-to-late twenties male looking to buy a pair of shoes that's more attractive than a sports sneaker and less formal than a business/dress shoe. [more inside]
I'm looking for a good pair of sneakers that split the difference between "casual" and "work." Mostly this is for casual Fridays at my office, when I want something cool/relaxed on my feet to go with some jeans, but my ratty Converse sneakers might come off as too informal. I like the Vans Ludlow and Pritchard collections, but the shoes in those links are limited edition and appear to be gone. The newest models in those collections don't fit my aesthetic tastes all that well. Is there anything along those lines - sort of a hybrid skate sneak / dress shoe, with a playful hint at formal classiness - you can recommend?
I'm looking for my perfect, versatile slip-on walking shoe that is comfortable without socks and not too clunky to wear with a casual skirt/dress. [more inside]
I love the Tsubo Millay shoes I just got, and would like to get more of this type of sporty shoes that still look smart. What are some other brands I should consider? [more inside]
