Neither are my cup of tea but those KillShot are clearly way nicer than those blazers. Don't listen to IllWill hes a melt who asks for sex advice on the internet, and who gives a fuck what GQ think or anyone else. If you like them get them.

Surely if you like one you like them both. The killshot 2 is also a faux-retro model which puts me off.

I agree with Will on the vibe they put out. Reeks of Reddit.

'But fans of the Killshot 2 are not your typical sneakerheads. They’re r/MaleFashionAdvice types, drawn to the sneaker for its vintage-y details, easy wearability, and sub-$100 price point. They’re the guys on your commute to work, of whom—and I wish I were kidding here—I saw two wearing Killshots this very morning. And thus far, for seven whole years, they’ve consistently sold their go-to kicks out every time J.Crew dutifully proffers more.'

Who cares Laughing out loud who wants to be a sneakerhead anyway that OG head ship sailed decades ago, and who cares what some melt from GQ wrote he's probably a cunt himself who thinks he's stylish but dresses like a total twat.

Like anything it's how you wear it.

Those blazers are proper booby prize. Neither are for me, but if your going for one of them Killshot all the way.

What options are there out there for a less "tech" sneaker? Sometimes when I wear flannel and jeans I think my sneakers don't really go. I know there is converse and vans, but cons pinch my toes and are really long, I like old schools but everyone and there mum seems to have them on these days.

For example today I am wearing these

Asahi or Excelsior do some nice vulc styles with higher foxing, asahis are like blazers but imo made better (tho laces feel really cheap).
Not sneakers but reckon a pair of wallabees would look good with what you are wearing there

PF Flyers fit wider than Cons in my experience but I ended up returning. I think that's the best style for the outfit (Jeans look a 60s fit, RnR flannel etc ) and there are loads of variations but they do tend to be narrow.

Aside from cons derivatives maybe a Adi Gazelle or Puma in black suede or maybe a gum sole? Similar to Vans in they are taken up by skaters so think they would work.

You always post solid looks spitfire but I think the footwear brings them down. What about Tricker's Stow or monkey boots?

I definitely agree with this.

Obviously the most coherent choice would be Vans or Converse, but I see your point about Old Skools. There’s a lot more though, see for example Sk8-His or Style 36.
For what concerns Converse, have a loot at their Cons line. Much more comfortable for daily wear imo (Vans has a similar thing called Comfy Cush). Talking about vulc shoes, what about Stepney Workers Club?
In terms of sneakers I would go NB; 990,997,998 or even 1500 at a push would suit your style better imo

Engineer boots would be great with that outfit imo but takes it into full RnR.

I hear you. But I am in steel toe cap boots all week at work want something soft and comfy at the weekends. Sure in the winter I would just throw on some red wings.

Anto’s suggestions are good. Sk8-hi would work well with your style and the NB’s.

Skagway as a Converse alternative?
