Sneakers are fast becoming one of the most essential parts of a man’s wardrobe. Which we all know is a good thing. With that in mind, and to help make your choice just a bit simple, we’ve taken the opportunity to collect a list of the key sneakers to invest in for the brand-new season.
Let’s kick off with the basics, everyone has sustained a long-standing connection with our favorite Converse since we were all teenagers, The original Chuck Taylor All Stars Have hardly changed in the era following their introduction on basketball courts in 1917.
If you’re looking for something less than casual, perhaps look to Common Projects. It’s a New York-based, Italian-made brand, founded by Messrs Flavio Girolami and Peter Poopat in 2004.
THE EXAGGERATED SOLE
Mr. Alexander Mcqueen has gifted us with many beautiful designs in the past but Alexander McQueen’s take on classic sneakers is set on exaggerated rubber soles – the unique style has gained itself strong-deserved cult status since its introduction.
THE TRAIL SNEAKERS

Oh, who are we kidding? They’ll look great on Instagram.
It’s no secret that the high tops are making a huge comeback this year,
This high-top pair has been crafted in Italy from full-grain calfskin and set on comfortable rubber soles. Notice the pull loops are made from the house’s signature striped webbing.
