4 Sneakerhead Closet Essentials for Men
As a sneakerhead, it’s easy to find the perfect pair of shoes to wear every day. To you, they’re not an accessory, they’re the whole point of what you wear day in and day out. So how exactly do you pair the perfect outfit with the perfect pair of sneakers?
Shoes tell a lot about your personality. They tell a lot about how you’re feeling each day that you roll out of bed.
The thing about the perfect pair of shoes, however, is you want to pair them with the right outfit so that they grab the best kind of attention. Not the “I’m trying too hard for you to notice my shoes” kind of attention. It’s a very fine line to toe.
All the while, we know that part of the sneakerhead lifestyle is staying classy and showcasing your personality.
Our favorite way to pair a sick pair of shoes is, hands down, a basic pair of jeans and a solid t-shirt. Simple? Sure. Classic? 100%.
There’s nothing better than the perfect fitting jeans and a soft shirt. It feels confident and gives every pair of shoes we own the lasting impression we want to give.
Too basic for you? That’s cool. The classic jeans and t-shirt look can always be mixed up a bit with different colors of denim, different versions of distressed denim, and even different styles of shirts. Think V-necks, pockets, button-downs, or even distressed is a trend now.
Our 4 sneakerhead closet must-haves
Not only are these jeans always on-trend, they’re affordable and durable. They are high-quality jeans from a brand that has maintained a solid reputation for years. Plus, we’d rather spend less on pants, so we can spend more on shoes to pair with them.
These jeans are slimmer in the leg, but not so slim that you feel trapped in them. The classic black jean is easy to pair with a casual pair of Converse Jack Purcell’s or dress up a bit with a pair of Chelsea Boots.
This shirt is one that we keep going back to. We’ve tried numerous plain t-shirts over the years, and this is the one we keep going back to buy more of. It’s soft, pairs well with a blazer and kicks, and holds up well to fading. You won’t regret this shirt. We promise.
We may be pretty basic in the clothes we wear to make our shoes stand out, but sometimes we like to stand out from head to toe. And that’s when Bonobos steps in. These short sleeved printed shirts come in a variety of patterns to fit any sneakerhead personality. And honestly, if you’re going to stand out, you should stand way out.
Whatever your shoes say about your personality, find your signature styler and build your wardrobe around it.
