The $10 Canvas Sneaker

The $10 Canvas Sneaker

Canvas sneakers are an essential for every man's wardrobe. They're standard issue with jeans and they can make a pair of chinos more weekend trip than weekday warrior.

Regular priced name brands can easily run you upwards of $60, but they're such a simple design you can get away with rocking far less.

Prime example: This pair from Wal-Mart's in-house brand Faded Glory that's a spitting image of a pair of Vans. At a budget-friendly $7.98 and with a cheap pair of leather laces from your closest drug store, you've got a look straight out of a J.Crew catalog. I opted for the steel gray, since they're more flexible than navy, which can look awkward with similarly shaded denim, and I love the way the brown laces look against it.

Wal-Mart isn't the only game in town, for others check places like Payless or Target – though I doubt they can come close to the price. Currently available in-store only.
