WHILE SNEAKERS WILL NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE, the must-have accessory has gotten some major upgrades over the years. Luckily for men, comfortable footwear is either minimized to a sleek design or maximized for eye candy. A modest shoe is usually always presented with a monochromatic take featuring tan, white, or gray color schemes for simplicity, while the vibrant selects are full of distinct color palettes. However, there are shoes that fall into both categories, enhancing clean design through color blocking.
With big thanks to the pandemic pushing comfort to the front, the dad shoe, and tech designs are now top of the list when searching for new kicks. However, fashion always has to include a choice for the minimalist, so a neat low top will do the low-maintenance buyer just right.
