I need new sneakers. These bargain bin white Vans are stiff and heavy and are killing my feet and I can’t go on. Can anyone recommend a comfortable, attractive sneaker that will keep my feet and aesthetic sensibilities happy?
Here’s are my requirements:
I already have running shoes. I’ll likely play some tennis and soccer and such in my sneakers, but these are everyday shoes.
* Low tops.
I prefer high top sneakers, but I already have a pair. I need a set of low tops right now.
* Black or white.
The base color must be black or white. Trim and other colors are not important, but I can’t wear red sneakers for the same reason I can’t wear a red sport coat. It’s just not me.
* Not hideous.
There is no accounting for taste, so I’ll just say that I prefer classic models, but I’m not opposed to a squishy tongue or fat laces. If you’ve ever seen a set of Asics running shoes, those are exactly what I do *not* want to see. Great shoes, but u-g-l-y.
* Good quality.
I’m not looking for orthopedics here, but I do need my sneakers to treat my feet reasonably well. Yes, I know that soft, comfy, low top sneakers will never be the best thing for my feet, but let’s do the best we can.
