Default Shoes

My Purcells bit the dust from overuse. Looking for a new casual sneaker. Any suggestions?

I was eyeing some orange new balance for whatever reason.
Spoiler!


Thoughts?

Depends what you want. I pretty much stick to minimalist sneakers in non assertive colors. NB's are fine though.

That's what I normally do, hence the Purcells/Chucks, but those caught my eye and I'm just kind of trying to talk myself out of them while trying to find other options. I'll probably just get a new pair of white Chucks and have another go at trying to keep them white.

You could get them in light gray instead, probably lower maintenance and they'll still be really versatile.

I only buy new shoes when my current shoes get a whole on the bottom & socks become wet on a daily basis

I think I'm going to end up going with Tretorn Nylites to replace my fallen Purcells.

I want them too, you can nike id them for a lot less for what they're going for on ebay, the bad part of nike id is they take at least 6 weeks.

My max for casual sneakers is usually ~$60, which is the main reason I passed on the 574's. Also, keeping white shoes white is a chore.
