New York is a concrete jungle filled with uneven sidewalks, potholes, and cobblestones. Trying to walk in loafers and oxfords can cause painful blisters that can make the daily commute miserable. Save your feet by finding a pair of interchangeable sneakers that can be worn on the street, at the office, and to the gym.
Finding the perfect balance can be achieved by focusing on color, design, and material. Rather than choosing loud prints or sombre shades, opt for clean colors. The design should be classic and not too distracting, and the materials can include mixes of mesh, suede, and leather.
Major designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Versace endorse the athleisure and streetwear trends by showcasing sneakers within their collections. Understanding that menswear enthusiasts combine style and comfort is crucial for being successful in today’s market.
