if i had to choose one pair to stand in all day it would be the eqt support 93/17. and there's a triple black version out there (that i don't personally like much). other stuff with boost too. alphabounces also work fine

this should also do a great job and it would probably be the popular pick
https://www.footaction.com/product/mode ... ack/black/

bit more traditional, if that's your thing
https://www.footaction.com/product/mode ... lack/grey/
same for a few other NBs, Gel-Lytes, maybe AM90 Essential

honestly though, triple black is so not my thing that if i already owned a somewhat comfy pair, like Vans or something, i'd just try putting in a better insole and see if i'm happy. the lunarlon from chuck 2s is a popular swap (for those who bought them before the model died)

not a fan of the toe cap on the nikes. 574s are pretty tight.

what do you think of these:

they look kinda goofy IMO but it's for work so whatever. $60.

not liking most of these. kinda like the neon ones which there is almost one around that concept for every city which makes it overall a lazy concept. same for the subway concept. will prob vote for the bodega am95 just cause its hilarious to me.

i spent way too much money on a couple of joggers and sweaters and windbreakers in that color scheme just for matching to one pair of shoes, so I should probably get another pair of shoes, just to be less ridiculous.

so I wear 9.5's, and I ordered some monochrome white chucks and based on their sizing chart I needed a 9. received it, shoes were too big. So I ordered an 8.5. Still too big - too much room in the toe. Wtf. I'm wondering if I need to go a full size lower but I cannot in good conscious order a fucking 7.5 shoe. And 8's look to be out of stock everywhere. Jesus.

anyway, would love some suggestions on clean white sneakers. I'll try to randomly find some in the bowels of this thread but would welcome your recommendations.

in my experience Chucks not only run big they just fit bigger than most shoes - you just sort of deal with the extra room because if you keep going smaller they get narrower and narrower
