Men’s trainers are going through something of a renaissance. Once an area of subtlety and function for all but the most flamboyant hip hop acts, trainers are now the place men can truly be making their mark. Read on to find out how to style the best of this season’s garish golds, stripped back whites or self-confessed ‘ugly’ men’s trainers.
Gold and Silver
No longer the haunt of confident women, gold and silver trainers for men are all the rage – and the best thing is, they are relatively easy to carry off. Being on your feet, it’s easier to wear these with confidence than a statement shirt, scarf or hat. The other thing is that they require a toned down outfit to let them shine, making them ideal for men who like to dress humbly in general. There are many styles available, from sportswear brands such as Adidas or Stan Smith as well as designer brands and even high street stores, and they all have one key feature: an almost complete covering of silver or gold, with a splash of white or black in the form of a sole.
Yes those big, bulky, awkward runners that we all have hidden at the back of the wardrobe are very much in fashion at the moment. In fact, the uglier the better. Worn with your workout gear for an actual run or simply to a bbq with shorts, ‘ugly’ white sports socks and a beer in hand. Ugly trainers are a surprise look for this year, but one that shows you are well ahead of the curve.
Don’t worry fans of stark white trainers, these simple shoes are still hot and look ideal paired with practically anything from skinny jeans to chinos and a designer shirt such as a choice of mens Farah shirts from http://www.ejmenswear.com/. If white-white isn’t quite you, then this season’s off-white trainers are a great solution. These off-whites are versatile and can be worn with any informal outfit.
Whilst the white, gold and silver trainers of 2017 are available mostly in classic lo-top styles, this seasons ugly runners are available in a range of mid and hi-top shapes and sizes. Whether you go minimalist, shiny or bulky, trainers are a go-to footwear that can be worn with practically anything right now.
