UK9 is US Womens 11.5. UK sizes womens and mens are the same. I think I got a uk9.5 and 2x uk6

They dont go as high as the wabisabi and lumieres do. My uk11 is a USW 13.5 but there arent many of those about.

Can anyone identify these trainers or at least give me a current equivalent. They're so comfortable but I've worn them to death. If I could find the same, I'd buy about five pairs!

Air max guile I think.

90s would have the same comfort, especially the recraft pairs but can cost more. Those guiles don't seem to be on general sale but there's a few floating about on ebay and some on Amazon.


Air max SC from sports direct for a cheaper option

I've had some shox in the past and I sort of like Supreme but it is a bit too nakedly hype beasty for my liking.

The shox themselves I think were of a time, like I had some in the noughties, can't quite think what I was thinking now tbh, but then I'm... Older...

Picked up a pair of the Hu Tennis shoes, had 20% off code and a free £15 voucher so only cost around £50.

Really lightweight and comfortable.
I really like the Tennis Hus....I've got two pairs that I bought from the Afew store, one of which I've worn pretty much every day for years, and are started to get a bit tired.

Where did you get them from? I keep looking around for some more in my size and that sort of colour but never come up with anything....

I need your trusted guidance chaps! Lads holiday in Porto this Friday and I need some casual trainers. It's a 'no hold luggage' type of trip so probably my only shoes :D

I'm a cheap skate, so considering the following:

I appreciate they're all pretty much variations of the same so please let me know any wildcard ideas! Literally just to wear with jeans, shorts, etc in a hot country.

Thank you!

Nike Killshots are pretty popular in that sort of style or maybe some blazer lows. Adidas sambas/spezials/gazelle are others.

But if anything like the stags Ive been on lately and you're walking a lot Id look at something more comfortable like an asics gel lyte 3 if you can find an understated colourway

Ended up with black + white:

The black ones are "budget" PS @ about £150RRP/ I got them for £90 with next day Sunday delivery (Flannels is great!). The white ones are the "proper" Paul Smith @ £300RRP/ I got them for £150 with Wednesday delivery (Paul Smiths own delivery not as good as the budget outlet lol).

Both feel like they are going to kill me blisters initially lol, so I may end up being "that bloke" with compede pads in his luggage.

Currently contemplating purchasing a pair of Airmax 90 Sun club special editions, thoughts?

They're both really nice.

If you can get them the air max 1 light madder roots are also super summery, just brought mine on holiday and they're perfect for it.
