Fall is the best time of year for a number of reasons; it's still warm enough to listen to Drake with the windows down, but not so stifling that you're pinned to your bed with two fans blowing on your nekkid body. But mostly, fall crushes it because you can leave the house in just about any pair of kicks and they won't come home wet, salt-stained, or otherwise destroyed by the weather.

 

While we're all for you taking advantage before winter strikes by wearing your rarest, most precious grails, fall is also a great time to go full-on classic. We're talking Nike Cortez, Adidas Sambas, Reebok Classics—that always cool, timeless vibe you can cop for under $150 and without so much as standing in line. To help you dress your feet without breaking your bank account in the process, we've rounded up 50 pairs of old school sneakers that are still just as dope today. Find your faves, click to buy, then get out there and have the best fall ever.
