Try pairing classic tennis shoes with your boot cut jeans. The traditional tennis sneaker is easily identified by its canvas material and flat gum sole. The sneaker comes in many different colors, so choose a bright pink or green to add a bit of pizazz to your outfit. Match the sneaker with a light-washed distressed boot cut jean -- as a couple of well-placed rips or a bit of shredding can give your casual look an edge.
Retro Breakdance Sneaker
Every now and again, it is nice to dust off retro 1980s break dancing gear. Throw-back suede sneakers have been reproduced by shoe manufacturers. Go for a pair of yellow trainers that have been outfitted with contrasting fat laces -- in a navy blue or purple, for example. Pair the colorful footwear with dark-washed denim for a classic look, or select one with a special resin finish to give the ensemble a contemporary designer upgrade.
Though high top sneakers are all about the ankle support, they also have the stylish boot-like element. And, prevalent designers, such as Michael Kors or Gucci, have many luxury styles of the tall sneakers available, outfitted in bright colors and fashion-forward prints. Show them off by cuffing your jeans at modest calf level. Select pair of near-black or charcoal color jeans -- featuring special embroidery or riveting -- to best show off your fashionable assets.
If you want a bit of a lift to your casual outfit, try going for a pair of high-heel sneakers -- a hybrid that combines class with comfort. Design houses, such as Alexander McQueen, have joined forces with sneaker manufacturers to produce everything from wedged booties to calf-grazing sneaker boots. Select a wedge-heel sneaker (of the ankle bootie variety) and combine it with a pair of cropped jeans. Flirt with a bit of color by pairing a neutral gray with a bright red trouser, creating a look that redefines the classic jeans and sneaker combination.
