Recommend me shome shoes! [Ohmigod, Shoes] (7)

Okay, I'm a guy who generally wears what I like. I usually search the clearance section of stores like Macy's, Kohl's, etc for stuff that looks good and is cheap. However, shoes are another story.

I usually only buy new shoes less than once a year, and usually only when my older ones are beat up. (Like they are now.) I also walk/run a lot, so I usually but whatever running/cross training shoes are the most comfortable but still rather cheap.

Now I'm thinking I should put more thought into my next pair, so that they can be as semi-fashionable as my clothes. I want some shoes that are comfortable, somewhat fashionable, and that I can find cheap (But I'll handle the last part if you could even reccommend some expensive ones). They have to be not to bad when wore while running/walking, too.

I want shoes that people wouldn't automatically notice (they don't yell "look at me!") but if they did happen to look they would notice they're pretty cool. Shoes that I can wear regularly to class as well as when I'm "dressing up" for a concert. Shoes you might see a J-rocker wear, but not as exaggerated as a lot of Visual Kei styles.

It seems to me the best options for the kind of stylishness I want would be some kind of (not-loud) plaid, polka dots, or watered down goth. But I really have no idea here. I'm not a goth or anything, so I certainly wouldn't want to dress like one, but I think wearing something near-goth would hurt if I wear it with other non-goth things.

Any suggestions?

Here's a few I'm considering:

I automatically suggest Converse because they come in a variety of styles and run pretty cheap, depending on what your definition of cheap is. Try to get two pairs of shoes, an everyday shoe and a more formal shoe, so it'd solve the problem of dressing up

I suggest plain white Nikes, because you can wear them with practically ANYTHING, whether you're dressing up or just having a casual day out with friends. Plus, they look clean too. :)

At payless I found some plaid Vans slip-ons that were around $20. They're not loud at all, they're pretty comfortable, and they have that casual chic thing you're looking for. Since they're not tennis shoes they can be flexible in formal situations and they're also good kicks for when you're just visiting your friends or going to the bar.
