Why Everyone’s Obsessed With Sneakers
A while back running shoes were for exactly that…running. But nowadays they’ve seemed to escape the confines of the gym and have hit the streets of high fashion. Gone are the days when sporting your sneakers with a suit made you look like an uncool dad on his city commute. The sneakers with anything- but-athletic-wear look has been embraced by the fashion community at large and for good reason. Enter brands like Brooks who are poised for a comeback with their Brooks Heritage collection which updates their classic styles with a modern twist. Originally established in 1993, the Regent running shoe I’m wearing here comes equipped with everything you need in a classic athletic trainer. It’s lightweight with performance technology like a diagonal roll bar and kinetic wedge but also meets the style standards for the savvy, fashion-focused new generation. Pebbled leather and suede combined with bold accent colors make these shoes anything but your average running sneaker. I styled my Regent’s in this outfit with a pair of navy chinos and a plaid button down for a preppy meets urban guy-on-the-go look. How would you style yours?
