When upgrading our sneaker collection, we inevitably face that eternal dilemma: cop the hottest new kicks or just pick up some cool-looking classics on the cheap.
But having elevated sneaker sensibilities doesn't mean you always have to drop two grand on Fear of God lust objects or even $200 on top-shelf Adidas Originals. There's plenty of old-school models that look great without kicking your wallet in the balls.
Aside from the usual classics by Converse, Vans and Adidas, sneaker giants like New Balance and Nike have plenty of low-priced pairs in suede, faux leather, canvas and rubber and in classic colorways that work for any occasion.
