Okay, so all my life I've been wearing sneakers. Recently I've decided I want to change that. My only issue being where to start, I want a pair of shoes that will look good with a nice set of jeans…Continue
"I recently purchased a couple of pairs of Sketchers Alley Cats from Sears on sale. VERY affordable, lots of good traction/semi-lug sole, pretty rugged and nice looking (I think). They are just a good practical shoe for the north east,…"
"I've been looking at some Allen Edmonds Sheldon Saddle shoes.
these go with so much.
For a more rugged casual look at some Wolverine 1000 mile boots. I know these may are expensive, and especially for a college student. I…"
"I don't know if they still make Earth Shoes, but that's I've had a pair since high school (my word! That was five years ago!) and they're still comfortable and durable. They're brown and go with jeans. Be sure to get dark…"
"Hey Matt,Aside form your sneakers, I would advice you to have a pair of running shoes and a pair of black leather shoes to your repertoire.The black leather pair can be high-cut like boots or the regular low-cut type. Just make sure that they…"
