I’ve started to wear chinos more often now and as such, the next logical question would be what shoe to go with. So I’ve been looking at sneakers here and there and I came across this great pair the other day from Adidas.
The dark navy shade stands out without needing to shout. You get color in a controlled dose. The suede fabric gives this a refined, polished feel which compliments and dresses up the sporty vibe from this piece all at the same time. I like how the laces end before the top two lace hoops – giving you a visual opportunity to check out the larger lace-hoop detail.
Speaking of details, the zip detail at the heel is a cool and practical detail – you get the coolness of zippers with the ease of sliding your feet in. I dig it when details are functional. The best part of this pair is that it’s less than US$100!
