If you follow popular men’s fashion bloggers on Instagram, Pinterest, etc, you may have noticed that a lot of them have quite a passion for white sneakers.
I actually go beyond that and say, with fully conviction, that a white sneaker is the #1 must buy for anyone. It is so easy to pair it with anything from a t-shirt to even a fancy suit.
Talking about suit, there is a big trend on men’s casual suit with white sneakers now. Big fashion brands are seeing the need to introduce more comfortable type of suits that will be easily paired with sneakers.
Brands like Zara and H&M already have a ‘comfortable suit’ collection in their inventory. As you already know from my previous posts, there are a lot of affordable suits and jackets that you can buy that will look very nice.
In my opinion, the difficulty is to find a nice white sneaker that will complement your outfit and make it stand out.
For example, Zara, Asos, and H&M all have some very cool suits and jackets but when it comes to shoes the quality is not very good.
In the past I bought shoes from all these major affordable brands, but unfortunately I returned all of them because it didn’t look good nor did it have good quality.
What is trending now is the Adidas Stain Smith. It is actually a classic sneaker that has been around for quite sometime but fashionistas are wearing it a lot more now.
If you pay attention, women are very particular with shoes and most of them will drop some big bucks on a pair of Louboutins, Tom Ford, Valentino, etc. They are actually right to do that.
The first impression of value in your outfit will always be your shoes or jewelry. You can always tell when someone is wearing quality shoes but sometimes we can’t even differ a $250 suit from a $2.500 one, so that tells us something about where to invest our money.
Of course, if you have the money to buy luxurious suits, watches and accessories, you can do it, but if you don’t have that kind of money to spend, you should definitely focus on the shoes.

One thing I noticed with my luxury sneakers is that it actually last longer than my cheaper ones. Most of them are made of the highest products and they will not look old too soon.
It is always nice to keep your best shoes inside boxes or dust bags to preserve it. I also strongly advise that you buy a shoe tree, specially for your leather shoes.
If you keep your sneaker in a nice condition you can even resell it on ebay for a very good price.
