The Sneaker Trend

The Sneaker Trend

Step into style with the sneaker trend. Sneakers continue to dominate the conversation in menswear. Here are the trends you need to know about!

The Dad shoe

From colourful geometric shapes to chunky soles, this sneaker style has entrenched itself
in streetwear culture. We like them paired with a slim-silhouette outfit, but we’ve seen style mavericks rock them with oversized fits that look great.

Military inspired 

The military trend has extended to footwear, and this field boot is a prime example. Let them anchor an outfit that features slim or skinny jeans, and your pick between a coach jacket, an oversized bomber, or even a lightweight coat. Be sure to roll your jeans up enough to expose the lacing system. Because you’re badass like that.   

The ‘Ugly’ shoe

There’s beauty in this beast. We’ve been converted after initial scepticism, and seeing them styled well – with slim, pleated track pants, a tucked, crisp white T-shirt, plenty of accessories and bags of self confidence – may convince you to have a crack at
the look.  

The sock sneaker 

The one-piece upper has yet to meet a match in terms of comfort and it looks great as well. This style works brilliantly with athleisure.
