1. Would sneakers be accepted to go with business casual in office environment (to meet clients/customers, etc)? Or would it be faux pas?
2. From the discussion below it sounds like sneakers can be divided in two broad categories:get_g0ing wrote: ↑Sun Sep 09, 2018 11:32 amHi, can you please explain more the role of non-designer vs. designer here?

If you can also wear a non-designer t-shirt (which could include the company's logo) with the jeans than you'd be pretty safe/consistent.
From my experience there's a pretty broad range covered by business casual with signficant variation by industry/company.
And what constitutes designer vs. non-designer? Like which brands.
(I never understood what people meant by designer jeans or shirts, is polo shirt designer?)
- Running shoe
- Chuck taylor or vans type shoe.
Some people suggest that chucks/vans can be part of business casual. I'd like to know why this is the case? i.e. what is it about these shoes (vs. running shoes) that makes them okay for business casual? (I used to assume that they are equally informal as running shoes)
