Summer is the time of year to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. So, when you’re choosing the right pair of shoes for your out-and-about ensemble, comfort is a huge factor to take into consideration. Walking around in shoes that give you blisters, or are hard to stand around in for a long period of time might not be the best choice. That’s where sneakers might just become your best friend.
Sneakers are an essential part of any person’s wardrobe. Whether you wear them for sports or just like the way they feel, they are always a reliable go-to form of footwear. They comfortably get you from point A to point B and are super versatile. There are just so many to choose from. And just because they are athletic looking, doesn’t mean you can only wear them with sports attire.
This Fashionisto found a way to incorporate his Nike sneakers into a great city business-casual look. He pairs a sharp blazer and tie combo with relaxed jeans and bright sneakers, creating a classy and cool outfit. You can never go wrong with a crisp dress shirt, neutral blazer and a textured tie. His outfit is a great example of how to style these wardrobe staples in a more casual way, whereas you could also easily dress it up with a simple change of shoes.
Lifestyle and athletic brands such as Nike or adidas have tons of options that can give you that extra spring in your step. If neon brights aren’t your thing, maybe try more low-key colours. This summer take your sneakers out for a spin and get active, while staying in style.
Spotted: The Salvatore Ferragamo spring 2013 menswear collection was full of bright footwear.
