For something trendy/stylish, I REALLY like the puma eskiva hi-top!
Woah! Some of those look like they're from Star Trek.

They’re back. New Balance owns them now.

Everything is coming back. A few years ago, I started wearing the Puma Suede and the Adidas Superstar again, both of which I wore from my teens into my early 20s. I hadn't seen a pair of either one of them in a couple of decades, but one day I saw a guy on the train wearing the Pumas and I struck up a conversation with him. He said he loved them and that I should get a pair, and I did shortly afterwards. I've been wearing them ever since.

I'll have to check out the PF Flyers.

dazzleman--

Men over the age of 25 should not be wearing converse, vans, hi-tops or other kid type shoes.

Remember?

I like to defy rules. The surest way to get me to.do something is to tell me I'm not allowed to.

Have they made a comeback?
Here’s my advice: buy shoes when needed, and not before. Give the kid money and let her choose their shoes with that money. Doing this will give them experience choosing, and managing money. If they choose uncomfortable shors, and have to wear them, they’ll make better choces the next time.

anything clunky and lowtop with thick soles is fashionable right now. Pretty ugly is you ask me. Also, white Adidas have been the thing for like 3 years now.

Also these old skool Vans, which is odd considering it used to be worn only by punks and skaters until a few years ago.
