Five Ways To Style the Latest Men’s Creepers

Wearing creepers may bring back memories of your high school “punk” phase, but the latest designs can be worn in a not-so-aggressive way. With detailing such as braided leather, colored suedes and new silhouettes — yes, a creeper loafer exists — the new crop of styles are giving an update to the classic creeper sole.

Below, see five ways to wear the latest creepers:
