    18. Once I went to college I pretty much stopped wearing sneakers unless I was running or working out in some other fashion. Jeans is either boots or sandals.

    I see age groups from 8-80+ wearing sneakers and jeans, at what time do the thread topics improve??

    I'll be 30 in a couple months and I still wear sneakers with jeans. To be more specific, I wear skate shoes cause I like the look and they're comfortable, but I don't see myself stopping wearing sneakers with jeans.

    Depends what you mean by sneakers. Running shoes? Lol, no. I wear Converse Chuck Taylors with jeans and don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

    I'm almost 40 and I still wear them. I don't think I'll come to the age where I don't.

    I'll be 42 in a couple of weeks and I only wear two kinds of shoes with my jeans: sneakers and hiking boots.

    I stopped white sneakers and moved to hiking shoes, which are essentially darker coloured sneakers. They look a bit better.

    If I weren't cheap as shit, I'd go and buy me a pair of dressier shoes.

    A variety of BDU colours are available. Black is at once versatile and understated. Their comfort and utility trump dungarees by far as well.

    Stop? Why would I want to stop? Unless I get a job where I can't, I will continue doing so. :p

    He might wanna check out some Tru-Spec 24/7 Pants or 5.11 TacLite Pro Pants. I have a pair of black Tru-Spec pants and they're great, though IMO they seem to run a bit big by a size or size-and-a-half.

    here and in Italy no one stops wearing jeans ever.
    Also sneakers in casual situations but they get subtler.

    They go hand in hand, kind of like a Dos XX and a shot of Patron. Will never stop wearing both, why should you?

    I did this too. Low cut hiking shoes in a tan/brown, with minimal flare. If you go with a brand like Garmont they're still as cushy as sneakers, but they don't end up looking beat up and dirty like sneakers. They also go better with BLACK socks.

    I prefer the 100% cotton ripstop but I live in a desert.

    You obviously never wintered at Great Lakes Naval Training Center (Illinois). The wind off of the lake whistled up underneath the pea coat, and while your chest & arms were warm, your butt froze solid! D:

    In answer to the OP's question, why would you ever switch from jeans & sneakers, if they're comfy? Even when I'm drooling in my Wheaties, in the old folk's home, I'll still dress that way! :thumbsup:

    Fell in love with Chucks for a few years. Then I realized how little support they offered. My feet felt like shit whenever I walked more than a few kilometers a day, which i do regularly living in the city.

    I'm 30 and live out in the country. I have to drive 10 miles from work to go get lunch. Fashion is not in my vocabulary.
