Designer sneakers have become an important staple for the modern man’s wardrobe. The world has slowly, but surely, accepted the trend of pairing sneakers with suits, but not any sneaker, a designer sneaker.  The difference between wearing a Lanvin or Common Projects sneaker with a suit as opposed to a basic Nike or New Balance, is night and day. Designer sneakers tend to be sleeker, slimmer and more detailed than a basic athletic trainer, not to mention, pricier. But know this, pairing a suit with a designer sneaker will provide style, comfort and function.

If you choose to pair your sneakers with a suit or even slacks, make sure that your pants are hemmed to the proper length, with little to no break, in order to complement and be an extension of your suit. Keep the color scheme and design of your sneakers simple and you can’t go wrong.
