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 2018.
