RE: Sneakers
993s are nice...but wearing them with jeans just reminds me of 8th grade where that combo was basically the uniform.

If you can run in them you shouldn't wear them with jeans and vise-versa. That's why I only do something like the Samba with jeans. More of a fashion shoe vs. a sneaker (yes I know they were meant to be used for indoor soccer, but you'd never want to run miles in them).

Yeah, I can see your point. Honestly I just think they have a nice, understated look with jeans. Obviously if I'm going somewhere with a stricter dress code, I'm leaving the 993's at home. But the local bar? Out shopping or on a first date with some talent? You bet I'll wear them. Amazingly comfortable, too.

RE: Sneakers
If you guys are picking up 7+ girls in new balance shoe's I'm impressed.

I stopped wearing Tennis Shoes when going out about a year ago. But even then, I always wear classy looking Jordans. I try to keep mine understated and real clean. I always get compliments on these ones:

Nike Air Jordan Campus Chukka.

When traveling in FSU, I realized a lot of girls in their 20's recognized the Jordan Brand.

Why did you bump it then ha?

"Never wear sneakers with jeans" was a decent thought. The only time I do is tailgating for football games.

RE: Sneakers
Hugo boss sneakers are great for casual and casual suits. I dont understand why people would pay the same amount of money to buy shoes like new balance unless its for workout or they are young. (Used to drop over $200 on air forces 15 years ago in high school)

RE: Sneakers
All Hugo boss sneakers.

Puma Dassler
Puma Mihara
Puma Black Label
Puma Alexander Mcqueen

Adidas Y-3

You can wear those shoes with jeans, khakis even casual suits. You won't have a problem getting into the club either.
I am not into those formal dress shoes unless I really have to wear. Those shoes are great since you look stylish and more relaxed (throwing dress shoes look too serious when going out to the bar)

I usually rock a very clean, minimalist look and these are a staple to it.

The most common and efficient way is eBay and I have offloaded quite a few pieces of my classic Nike collection using this method. The only downside is they charge a fee for you to sell. You can also try listing on "sneakerhead" marketplaces like SoleCollector or NikeTalk, as these both feature a ton of shoe enthusiasts that are very gung ho about acquiring rare kicks. Lastly, there's local physical marketplace/conventions that you can go to like SneakerCon in LA, that hardcore shoe collectors also frequent, so depending on what kind of shoes you are selling you can fetch quite a bit. You should be able to find them via a Google search of your respective local area. I remember hearing about how shoes from Kanye West's old Nike collection were going for $1600 a pop here.
