Up Your Style: Best Casual Shoes at Eastbay

Up Your Style: Best Casual Shoes at Eastbay

One of the most iconic silhouettes New Balance has ever released has gotten an update. The 574 Rugged has a suede and mesh upper that sits atop a jagged outsole, providing a streetwear style that allows you to go off the beaten path.

Step into the future in the Air Max 2090. The upper features a combination of translucent rubber and mesh for a modern look. There’s Cushlon foam in the midsole to cushion each step, and the Max Air unit in the heel stays undefeated.

The NMD is known for bringing sporty style to casual, everyday shoes. The full-length Boost midsole gives the shoe that chill look while still providing you with high-performance cushioning in case you decide to go for a run or hit the gym.

A pair of Vans should be a staple in your kicks rotation. The aesthetic may be low-key, but they fit perfectly with almost any outfit. This pair, with its mixture of gold and navy blue colors, adds a little spice to your outfit.

This shoe was designed for International Women’s Day by the women who work at Converse. It features a bold, all-over print featuring “My Story” graphics and a platform outsole for an authentic feel. Stacked heel logos and the signature star ankle patch bring a little twist to classic elements of Converse shoes.
