ShoeFilter: Help me find slip-on sneakers with fixed laces

I love these casual men's Diesel sneakers, which are slip-on but also have fixed shoelaces for appearance sake without the need to tie/untie. Unfortunately, Diesel doesn't make them anymore. Can you help me find similarly styled slip-on sneakers that have fixed laces and are available for purchase?

Where can I find Converse's First String 1970s Chuck Tailors in DC?

Recently, Converse put out some "vintage" chucks recently (see here) but they are only available from certain retailers. I'd like to purchase a pair but I have no idea where to find them in Washington, DC. Has anyone seen these around or know of a place in DC that would stock them?

Mutant skate shoe / dress shoe

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?

Too lazy to google, not too lazy to go to the gym.

Where do I buy gym shoes in the (Chicago) Loop? I trashed my Nikes at Lollapalooza over the weekend, and I don't want to show up to my "Personal Fitness Assessment" tonight with busted kicks. I'm at Monroe & Franklin, so the closer to there the better.

What sneakers will protect my feet without alienating them from the rest of my body?

I need a new pair of sneakers, mainly to be used for going to the gym. Most sneakers appropriate for running are gaudy, strangely bulbous and look like some sort of terrifying cyborg technology. I just want a humble and functional pair of shoes that will protect my feet while exercising and possibly promote good posture. Any suggestions?

Skaters Sneakers

ShoeFilter? Six months ago, I bought a new pair of Skaters sneakers. Recently they started to make a weird "clack" sound while I was walking, and I discovered that protuding from a small hole in each sole, close to the heel, is a solid-looking metal strip, about 1cm wide and 1mm thick, looking as though it's been slowly grinding its way out. What are the strips for? Is it really necessary to reinforce the rubber with metal?

Where can I find these Nike City Knife II sneakers?

I'm going crazy trying to find the Nike City Knife II sneakers I wrote about here (yes, self-link, sorry).

Niketown sent me to Paragon. Paragon sent me to Niketown, or online. Google sent me to my own site! I'm going apeshit!

These shoes must exist, they must: my web buddy Rik Abel spotted them in Brighton (UK) of all places. Since AskMeFi has been so remarkably efficacious in the past - accurate responses, response time on the order of ~10 minutes - I figured I'd give you guys a try before packing my quest in entirely.

Athletic Shoes

I wear a 13 6E in whatever goofy sizing New Balance uses. I need something wider and I can't find anything out there. Does anyone make anything above a 6E width or am I screwed? Would moving up to a 14 6E give me some extra width?
