I'm buying dh some shoes for Christmas . I want to get some casual shoes to replace his converse but I'm not sure where to start .He's 30 if that makes a difference .

What casual shoes does your dh/dp wear ?

I love these ds tried them on yesterday - but he thought they were too grown up!
Dh wears Addidas Gazelles, dark brown ankle boots and a pair of
Merrell trainers.

Oh those are nice . The Adidas ones are nice too but maybe more my style actually . Thanks for the reply smile

Second Adidas Gazelles, he also has a pair of light grey suede brogues from Ted Baker that are smart/casual.

Thanks all smile I think he might like a pair of vans.

But he's over 60 and likes comfort on his feet. He has loads of shoes!

Paul smith trainers, in black or brown. He is creature of habit

As casuals.... Mostly Nike Flights, followed by converse and the occasional pair of vans.

Why not replace with leather canvas?

Leather converse...

DH wears palladium boots. I wear them too. Very stylish. They provide good support, are lightweight, and make all my outfits look intentional.

DH wears Levis desert boots that we picked up for next to nothing in the states, dark green leather trainers (I forget the brand, they're not very nice) and for Xmas I've bought him Adidas samba, similar to the gazelles but cheaper on Amazon! I really like the look of the Gazelles but DH doesn't care about fashion so it was silly spending the extra for me when I'm not even going to wear them!

Vans, New Balance trainers (the casual ones rather than the running ones), Nike SB. He's just got a few pairs from Schuh last week on sale so might be worth looking there.

IamSantaClaus Fri 27-Nov-15 15:30:18

I went with black vans , I do like the look of those Adidas ones though . Maybe for myself grin

DH is 44.
He wears Brown leather Camper shoes/boots. Or New Balance trainers or Gazelles.

WhyDoesGastonBark Sat 28-Nov-15 08:05:05

Not Gazelles or Sambas... My Dad has worn them my WHOLE life ...

I bought my husband a nice pair of shoes on this site:

FoofFighter Fri 21-Apr-17 16:01:39

Freya oh my those boots, I wore those in the early 90s grin are they on a comeback? I recall them being super comfy.

user1492786186 Mon 24-Apr-17 16:33:12

Yeah defo, I see many guys wearing them nowadays. My husband loves them!!

nevernotstruggling Mon 24-Apr-17 18:45:19

My dp bought the boots Higge linked on my insistence.

I want to get dp in to converse!

He has Stephan janowski Nike air and addidas whatever their Retros are called but still looks awkward
