    Hey, the only shoes I currently own that fit are two pairs of river island high tops and so want to get a new pair of shoes which go with shorts/chinos/slim jeans. All ideas would be welcomed, first thing which came to mind would be Vans but everyone is getting Vans at the moment so was wondering if anyone had any other ideas besides them ? thanksss!

    I usually roll with low white converse.

    They go with pretty much everything, especially if you scuff them up a bit

    Don't go with the plain old and simple Vans or Converse. Get some boat shoes or brogues. You can get some really nice pairs are really good prices!

    Anything but espadrilles, please. It's not that I hate people wearing them per se, but I certainly die I little inside when I see them.

    I second boat shoes, can't go wrong!

    I like converse, but they look stupid on size 9 feet

    is there a way to make them look good even on medium sized feet ?, perhaps only lacing up a few of the loops

    I have size 9 feet, mine look awesome. Tucking the laces away always helps.

    You could always get Crocs, everyone loves those :lolwut:

    Some decent boat shoes would do the job, at least with chinos or shorts.

    For true summer shoes, boat shoes/deck shoes or loafers (tasseled or fringed).

    For a summery take on year-round shoes, try going for suede instead of leather (suede broques, derbies or desert boots). Beige, blue or (if you're brave) something brighter (I've seen suede shoes in yellows, greens and oranges in quite a few places this year).

    Double monkstraps seem to be getting popular too.

    Considering you currently wear high-tops, the most appropriate shoe is probably either the boat shoe or a suede desert boot. I'm assuming you dress very casual/laid back? The loafers and double monkstraps likely aren't appropriate to your existing style (I'm making an assumption here, but I really can't see how either shoe would work in place of high-tops, they're both for a much more refined, smart/casual look).

    converse vans and boat shoes are all overplayed and worn by chino****ers.

    Try some nice drivingshoes/casual loafers.
