Sneakers are often called a number of different things, you may have heard them called trainers, runners, gym shoes, or even tennis shoes. Now, sneakers typically refers to a type of shoe that’s very flexible with a rubber sole, some kind of a synthetic material with rubber or even leather on the upper portion of the shoe.
These days, we see sneakers being made for virtually any kind of occasion, walking, skateboarding, running, many many others. We also are seeing a greater amount of hybrid shoes being created. For example, the Cole Haan dress shoe that happens to have a Nike rubber sole.
Now should a gentleman even be wearing sneakers?
Well, as long as the shoes are being worn at the correct time and in the correct place, it is acceptable to occasionally wear sneakers.
You might be wondering how do we properly pair sneakers with casual attire?
The one big thing you want to watch out for is to ensure that the sneakers you’re choosing to wear match the style of clothing and the location of which you might be going.
So we all know that sneakers are going to work wonderfully for a casual setting but what happens if you happen to be in a more professional setting, could you also adapt sneaker wear?
Now, this can get a little bit tricky. Does your work environment allow you to be able to wear sneakers? And if so, what’s the dress code like in terms of what colors you can and can’t wear? When you are able to wear sneakers in the workplace, the one thing you want to make sure of is that your sneakers are complementing both you and your outfit but are not demanding all the attention.
Now, are expensive sneakers acceptable in all situations?
The answer is no. The style and design will be what dictates a shoes’ worthiness to be worn in various settings. It’s important to remember that a high price point does not equate to a high variety of different options for outfits. Now, some more moderately priced pointed and even high priced pointed unconventional sneaker options include the following brands, we have Yeezys, Nike Air Jordans, Y3, as well as the Ultra Boost by Adidas. Extremely well known brands that people all over the world seem to like to shop from are as follows, we have Reebok, K.Swiss, Adidas, New Balance, and many many others.
How do you decide what brand to wear and when to wear certain styles of sneakers?
For example, are you looking for a sneaker that’s going to allow you to wear it for a multitude of different occasions? Or are you looking for something that’s going to allow you to run track at your local gym? Knowing the occasion and what you plan on wearing your sneakers will help you decide which ones you should be wearing.
We also see some different style options depending on people’s personality, as well as their age.
Men in an age group of teens to early 20s often have a lot of flexibility with what kind of shoes they choose to wear. These men can choose from a wide variety of sneaker options from the Nike SB or something more sleek and professional, for example, a pair of leather sneakers from Oliver Cabell or
Greats the Royale.
Depending on the individual style preferences, men in their mid 20s into about age 35 might want to try something like a clean classic pair from K-Swiss or something more low-profile and comfortable like a pair of Vans for when you are out and about around town. Both of these brands, for example, offer a great deal of support without charging excessive amounts of money.
Now, for men in their mid 30s into mid 40s, a great shoe option that offers a lot of comfortability would be a sneaker from Saucony. For a more upscale approach to your overall outfit, try wearing a leather sneaker option from a place like Hugo Boss.
Now, for men who are in the 45 and older crowd, let’s say you’re going out for a good workout, try a pair of Nike trainers that are well structured and
offer a great deal of support when you’re at the gym. For someone who likes to lift, go ahead and try the Converse Chuck Taylor as the flat bottom helps keep you extremely structured and flat to the ground. If you enjoy a
lengthy run, go ahead and try Asics.
These are just suggestions, please note that any age group should feel comfortable trying any of these styles.
