If you're looking for something outside of the Nike SB series in terms of skate shoes, I think the Adidas Ciero Mid ST is more than qualified to meet your standards.
The Adidas Ciero Mid ST is a vintage model that's been given an updated look and it definitely delivers. The use of suede, mesh and corduroy provides a unique blend of textures to the upper and presents a smooth aesthetic. The colors beautifully complement one another, with a light gray contrasted by blue and yellow laces. Although subtle, I do like the 'ST' emblem with the Adidas logo on the side of the sole, which is a nice change since it could've been easily incorporated onto the tongue. Even if you're not a skater, the Adidas Ciero Mid ST is perfect even for casual wear, making it a suitable choice for your next purchase.
