It’s not news to anyone that sneakers have crossed the sport threshold and are now firmly a style staple in every man’s wardrobe. With top designers and celebrities collaborating with major sport brands and new sneakers released every month, it’s no wonder some men’s sneaker collections rival those of the most ardent shoe-lover in us girls.
Browse any street style blog and you’ll see that sneakers are also becoming the sartorial shoe of choice among the male fashion pack, worn with everything from jeans to chinos to suits.
So if you’re still rocking the same pair of trainers from school, here’s a round-up of the best styles that will turn you into a sneakerhead in no time:
Vans Slip On
One of the world’s original skate shoes, Vans Slip On sneakers continue to be favoured for their non-slip rubber soles. The checkerboard pattern is probably one of the most recognised styles, thanks to the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but the plain surface area makes them popular with unique collaborations from Star Wars to Dover Street Market. Dress them up with chinos and a classy knit.
