Unlike most people, I'm no fan of sneakers because they don't allow my feet to breath. So, I always worked around my disdain for sneakers by either wearing sandals or boots of some sort. But sometimes you just need a cross trainer type shoe that's breathable. I'm now in love with the Torrent Pro manufactured by Chaco. While I adore Chaco's sandals, I haven't had a lot of experience with their shoes. I wanted something that was breathable, lightweight, comfortable, provided plenty of room in the toe box, offered good traction on wet surfaces, didn't require lacing, and, of course, looked good with jeans or black leggings. These shoes completely fit the bill. They come in a selection of colors from the bold (orange) to the very tame (black) along with other neutral colors.
