All right gals and guys, as the temperature rises and the snow rapidly melts outside, it's time to put away the boots and I find myself in need of buying a new pair of everyday shoes to wear during the warm seasons. I'm basically a jeans (or occasional corduroy pants) and t-shirt relaxed kind of guy; I like to have a clean, somewhat elegant uncluttered look.
Which of these do you prefer? If you dislike all of them, feel free to make other suggestions:
I'd abandon the idea of 'everyday' shoes that actually work every day. If you are buying something in fashion, it goes out of fashion, if you are getting more core classic things, you can wear them for years. Instead of buying a pair of shoes, wearing them every day, when they die, replacing, have a few pairs, they will last MUCH longer (two pairs will last more then twice as long as one pair because they get a chance to dry between wearings) and you can actually match to what you want that day a little more.
The skechers are pretty ugly but may be practical if you're active. The two pairs of Adidas have a little more style. I'd go for either or both of them. Other similar kind of classic simple shoes you might consider are onitsuka tigers or converse stan smiths or jack purcell's.
I'm not that into athletic shoes myself when not doing sports, for summer, I'm more likely to wear dirty bucks with jeans. link
