    Default Let's talk sneakers - specifically, work place appropriate sneaks

    Cuz fuck it, we're a motorcycle board, might as well have good style while we sit back in our chairs and talk about the glory days.

    Anyway, I'm looking for business casual appropriate sneaks that can be worn with jeans, khakis, and preferably with slacks once in a while. My office is super laid back, so it doesn't really matter what I wear there, but it would be nice to maintain some comfort while on site visits. Sometimes I'm walking more than 5 miles a day.

    I'm currently rocking some Puma Suedes in grey, but they're not the most comfortable shoe I've ever had. I have another pair of Pumas I wear casually, and those aren't that comfortable, either, which leads me to believe Puma is out. Also, back to the Suedes... the thickness of the white part of the sole makes the shoe look and feel boxy. Shoe: https://us.puma.com/en/us/pd/suede-c...e%20gray-white

    I was hoping to find something like this: https://www.johnstonmurphy.com/mcguf...r_8318_width=M ... at least, similar styling, with better reviews for people actually walking distances in them.

    What are y'all wearing these days?

    I recently picked up some Skechers Relaxed Fit Memory Foam slip-ons.

    They are hands-down the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

    Kwicherbichen. I'm old and I'm slow and I don't care. Get off my lawn, ya punk.

    These are my current workplace sneaks. Lightweight and breathable, solid black - not too flashy so they look good enough to wear with slacks while walking a trade show or if I have a customer visiting the office.

    I have several pairs of Sperrys - both lace up and slip on.

    Adidas Ultraboost is hands down the most comfortable casual wear shoe. I have a few different colors and wear them all the time at my work.

    Clarks Desert Boots with either a crepe or Vibram sole is also quite comfortable, but nothing like the walking on clouds feeling of the Ultraboost.

    Check Nordstrom Rack for the Cole Hahn dress "sneakers". The make a line of oxfords, cap toes, and derbys, that have a sneaker footbed and sole. Fucking amazing, they're all I wear to work now.

    not helping with comfort or style because my work just relaxed the dress code enough to allow "dressy sneakers" and i'm still trying to find stuff i like, but:

    Kohls is having a shoe sale right now and if you use UPGRADE30 at checkout you get an additional 30% off. I have 2 pairs of adidas and a few Chucks in my cart right now.

    My old bosses wife worked for Cole Hahn. I’ve got 2 or 3 pairs from him. They’re really comfy and good looking. I never saw him wear the same pair twice while she was there. He said once a year they would donate 100-200 pairs of shoes.

    Thank you for the suggestions fellas.

    Gonna give these a try: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FLJXKT2...ter_B06Y51JNLL

    We'll see how they fit and all that shiiiiiiit. Aldo seems to have the style I'm looking for more than all of the others. I never did buy into the Ultraboost fad. They're just so goddamn ugly.
