It isn't necessary to always be rocking the loudest sneakers in the room. As ably demonstrated by A$AP Rocky in recent weeks, sometimes all that's needed is a reliable shoe that you can be sure won't detract from the rest of your outfit. We love our running and trail kicks, sure, but when it comes to nailing the casual look, something more pared back is often the way to go.

Injecting some laid-back flair into your look is easier said than done, which is why we've listed 10 of our personal favorites below.
