Finding sneakers that are both comfortable and stylish is a difficult proposition. Throw in affordable and it’s like playing a game of “Single, Hot, Crazy” where you can choose two but leave out a third. Which is why I’ve primarily stuck with Chuck T’s for most of my life. They’re just comfortable enough, while exceeding the affordable and stylish prongs.
If I had my druthers, I would buy Nike’s exclusively. They are really the only sneakers that fit my feet exceptionally. Perhaps it’s because they make their sneakers more narrow than other brands. And while these Steve Alan Lava sneakers for Nike aren’t exactly affordable ($155) they are probably comfortable and just about the most beautiful sneakers I’ve seen in some time. Beautiful for what they aren’t. These are simple, understated and classy kicks. [via coolmaterial]
