    Default Mens casual sneakers/shoes and a "semi" dress shoe

    Hi everybody.

    I need your help. I have just cleaned up some of my shoes, and right now i only have a few left. The remaining are 2 pairs of converse, and a semi-dress and a dress shoe.

    I am looking for casual shoes in the same vally as Converse, something that can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt, but also with a casual shirt. So, a very diverse/versatile and relaxed.

    What i am not looking for, a shiny sneaker that would only fit a t-shirt, neither a all-in atlechtic like common Nike dunks. Vans does not fit me either, looks to slobby i think.

    Any recommenations would be highly appriciated.

    I could also use a "semi"-dress shoe, let me give you a example of what i have, to guide you in that direction:

    I cannot seem to incert a picture, but the "semi" dressed shoe is the Schmoove Jamaica all black.

    Have you considered Clark Desert Boots for another casual shoe? They're pretty cool, and Steve McQueen wore them.

    for semi-dress shoes why not a penny loafer. You could pull them off with some chinos or khakis, some jeans, even shorts and look stylin'

    Hello!! I love this kind of shoes. Have you heard about moccasins? they're pretty cool thou, I checked the howtomakemoccasins page and found really good stuff. I know is hard sometimes to find the shoes for a man if you don't want to go with a formal style so I think this is a great idea and it can be worn not only for a non formal situation or date. This is one of my favorite moccasins for man. Hope you like it!

    It's very nice looking.

    I also really like Clarks shoes, however I prefer the Wallabee's. Have you ever checked out Geox shoes? They make many different styles that may suit what you're looking for based on what you've mentioned.

    Timberland do some nice shoes and chukka boots in their Earthkeeper range. Casual,
    but still smart enough to wear with a casual shirt. Clarks Desert Boots is a good call too,
    they are a classic.

    You may even consider some clean all-white or all-black leather sneakers, Adidas Stan Smiths for example?
