Because men’s sneakers have certainly come a long way from just all white (although we still love those). Shop our picks for the most stylish kicks for men this year.
We’re obsessed with all things ‘sneakers.’ Whether you call them ‘tennis shoes’ or ‘sneakers’ we can all agree that we can’t get enough of them. You used to have a pair of sneakers strictly for running and then another pair to sport when you’re just hanging out, but now those lines are being blurred and we’re wearing our running kicks with our favorite pair of jeans and heading out for the day. Yeah, yeah we know we’re supposed to keep our running shoes just for running, but we can’t help ourselves.
If you’re in the marker for some new kicks, right now just may be the perfect time to make your purchase. According to a recent study, the best months to upgrade your sneakers is April and November. This is usually because the major retailers are already making room for the next season. Since we’re not, you know, buying a car in this instance we’re fine with buying ours now when, you know, we actually need them.
From running to leisure and designer to the latest trends and colors we’ve rounded up some of the hottest mens sneakers this season. Shop our picks for the best mens sneakers (so far) in 2020.
The Best Men’s Sneakers of 2020
1. The Nike Killshot 2 Sneaker – Buy It Here
These are the sneakers that have basically gone viral and have been selling out over and over again all year long, thanks to J. Crew featuring them. The good news is that (as of right now) they’re back in stock and still in style. They’re a classic throwback, oddly comfortable, and look great with jeans, shorts, or even your favorite pair of chinos. They now come in additional swoosh color options like navy blue, hyper-blue, and grey. Learn more here!
