    Those are good-looking. But short of Nike killshots I'm not sure I would well to spend the effort to maintain so much white.

    I know. I left a pair that looked like these but dirtier by the trash in case a homeless wants them. Trainer/ sneakers is easy for me. Just white with minimal detail.

    Shoes are another thing. I had a pair for ten years. Replaced them, then lost them in July when I had to sleep ruff in el parie

    I usually buy a pair of runners every couple of months or so.

    Shoes I am the same with, keep em for a good while.

    Boots are in between.

    My last shoes cost 15 euros. Just plain white with a bit of blue and red on the tongue. The white ones are dailys. I won't care for them or put them on a pedestal. They gotta be comfy and look sharp.

    That's why I went with these, I've had probably 5/6 pairs of Lacoste.

    They will also be ruined by tomorrow if the night turns out how I think anyway.

    I'm genuinely gonna go to the store in the next half hour or so. I've seen a few pairs I like and I'll take some snaps.

    Those are all pretty good-looking except the last one. That texture somehow doesn't really work.
    Also it might just be your picture but the very pointed toe is not as in style here anymore. It's become just a tad more subtle.

    Also the gray kind of looks suede. The regular brown leather is going to age a lot better if you just throw some clear shoe polish on it regularly. Plus it's really versatile.

    Zoomed in. The suede one looks like it might be cloth? And the other gray one at the top is leather?

    They probably be really good if you had an outfit built around them. But they aren't going to be that versatile.

    One of them is like a textile rugged cloth. I think that's the one you think suede

    Yea that's my problem. I could go buy a whole set of clothes to match them but i think I'd rather just get some brown ones. Can fit them with anything

    I must mention that 5 was a very soft leather. It felt like the skin of baby yoda

    There's another store I like but I can't go look at the shoes there's as I always wind up buying the clothes they also have. It's gotta be one of the shoes pictured
