    Can you help me pick one of these 2 white sneakers?



    My current sneaker collection consists of: blue chucks, black jack purcells, green chucks, khaki tretorn [kinda look like chucks] - i'm missing a good white pair and ive narrowed it down to:


    1) http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/tretorn-nylite-sneaker/3373761?origin=PredictiveSearch


    2) http://www.zappos.com/converse-jack-...-egret-leather [i also am considering canvas but leather seems to look classier?]


    i was also considering adidas samba, but after trying a pair on in the store they seemed a bit stiff

    I'm actually not a big fan of the Tretorn - got some from J.Crew that I returned. I just don't like the shape or the style. JPs are a classic, and very up-to-date in the slimmer version. Not sure I'd go for the slip-on personally. I think some white JPs would look pretty killer with leather laces.

      FWIW, a couple of months ago one of my local Marshall's started carrying the JP in white for $30-40 in store. If you've got one near you (the bigger the better, at the very least size-wise in my experience) it's worth checking out.


      Style-wize, I'm not really a fan of the Tretorns. I don't like the swoop and the look of the material. JP I like more but I'm personally still meh on them. (Again FWIW) My personal preference for canvas shoes has to be the PF Flyers (white collection: http://www.pfflyers.com/gender=men/S...ut/Color=White ). The substantial toe and pinstripe color are winners for me.

          @ooze3 - For what it's worth, I have a pair of white jack purcell's and a pair of the Tretorns in the flannel gray color. I love the look of the JP, but for my money, the Tretorns are much more comfortable. I also really like the fact that they look a little different than what others are wearing. Next summer I plan to get a pair of white Tretorns.
