Black sneakers are a great addition to any man’s collection.
No longer solely associated with the clunky work styles you’d find in a kitchen, they’re available in a range of on-trend silhouettes — not to mention pair easily with any outfit, look clean and don’t distract from your overall aesthetic.
Tips and Notes
- Subtle color pops often provide a welcome contrast that helps the sneaker stand out.
- The upper material will help you decide if they’re appropriate to wear (e.g., you may not wear a knit upper to a formal function, but leather may work for the event).
