How to wear trainers the smart way

I’ve said it before and I shall say it again: I love men’s shoes. And for that reason, I like to feature them in my site now and again. Sometimes I model them for you, but on other occasions, such as the present, I grab one of the stylish men I know, and coerce him into doing an outfit post for me.

So here we are, one of said stylish friends rocking a pair of Redskins trainers.

I think the jacket is from Zara,
the shirt could be from Adolfo Dominguez as I’ve heard he has a penchant for that brand

My friend tells me they are extremely comfortable and easy to wear with almost everything in his wardrobe, as he favours a certain casual chic style. I particularly like how they have been paired with some straight cut jeans, although he really needs to tell me where he got them  – seriously, these stylish men are very photogenic, but how sketchy are they on the details?! – These trainers can be also worn with some grey trousers, maybe even tweed, of the casual kind.

I simply love brown trainers. However, I only like them when they’ve been made for guys. Yes, I’m a tad strange. Rumour has it I once walked into the men’s section of a Pull & Bear, saw a pair I liked, asked for my size – fortunately I have big feet so I can fit into their smaller models – and bought them straight away. But that, my friends, is just a rumour.

How about you? Any strange shopping tendencies?

    Athletic shoes are for athletic pursuits. Otherwise, boat shoes, camp mocs, bluchers, or loafers are called for.

    Glasses and shoes are the only two items I hate purchasing online. Perhaps that is odd?

    Purchasing shoes online (and glasses) are also tricky for me. With shoes I’m between sizes which means a lot of the time I need to return them – this is where a good return policy becomes essential – and as for glasses, well that’s a really tough one as in regular stores it takes me forever to find a pair that suits my weird face ;)

    Nothing wrong w/ wearing men’s shoes and especially not stylish ones like this! (OK, I mean if you were into Men’s basketball shoes I might disagree, but these are another story). Your friend is super stylish. Hope your transition into London life continues going great : )

    When it comes to trainers I tend to go with converse. Whenever I’m dressing a little bit smarter I usually stick with shoes. But these easily work, great photos :-).

    He looks s o european! Love his trainers. Intend to stay out of the men’s section, but maybe I should go take a peek sometime.
