Yes, you can wear sneakers with a spring suit. Rocking a pair with your tailored clothing, khakis, and even dark denim is trending for the season. The look first sported by menswear style influencers has gained significant traction and is now considered mainstream fashion. If your office dress code allows, get on board. Of course, wearing sneakers are comfortable and practical, but they’ll also wake up your whole outfit. Wear them bright and white for a clean-cut preppy look. But, most importantly keep them smelling fresh. Its summer after all and sweaty feet will make your sneakers stink. Wearing No Show Socks from Mack Weldon and sprinkling Grooming Lounge Super Powder inside your kicks will keep the stench away. After all, you should smell as good as you look.
Get the style right. Bulky high tops will cause your trousers to bunch at the ankle, and that’s not a look. Stick to low-profile kicks. Both for business and pleasure you won’t go wrong with a pristine pair of adidas Stan Smith court shoes. The iconic pro tennis sneakers made their debut in the 70’s and still look as modern and cool as ever.
Dressing down doesn’t have to mean looking like an underachiever. Keep it clean and classic with a pair of Jack Purcells. Named and designed by the legendary badminton champion, Jack Purcell, this winning sneaker has always been a crowd pleaser. And we’re giving them bonus points for being easy to spot with the signature “smile” across the toes.
Make them your own. You don’t have to be a clean-cut preppy to jump on this trend. Keep your look safe-for-work without giving up your skater street cred with this new sneaker from Vans. The Era 59 is a neat, low top lace-up skate shoe with leather heel accents and padded collars for added ankle support. Just in case you feel the need to Ollie in the office.
If you absolutely hate the idea of pristine white sneakers, you’ll love the updated classic Nylite 1891 from Tretorn. They’re roughed up in all the right places with slightly distressed leather and laces. It’s an effortlessly cool, lived in look that’s still sharp enough to pair with dressier pants.
You’ll make a more sophisticated fashion statement by wearing the Arlington leather sneakers from the Billy Reid & K-Swiss collaboration. With signature K-Swiss side stripes, this pair is quieter, and a drop more upscale with a reimagined refined silhouette, waxed laces, and custom rubber sole.
