The 12 days of Men’s Sneakers

Sneakers have been all the rage over the past few years and are hitting a peak at the moment.

Whether it’s a souped-up Adidas, or those Back to the Future self-tying kicks, just about any flavor and variation of sneaker is available to your liking. With the holidays fast approaching, I offer some chic sneaker ideas for your guy.  While most of these are more on the conservative side (read: my husband), I’ve found that it’s always better to play it a bit safe with gifts… and include the gift receipt!

Vans Authentic Core Classics
While guys of a certain age will always think of Vans as the sneaker worn by Spicoli in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, guys of any age will do well to ship in a pair (or two) of these clean, low-priced weekenders. Fun fact: Zappos is free one-day shipping and free returns! Available here.

Golden Goose Starter Leather-Trimmed Sneakers
Edgy and cool, a good looking shoe.  This brand was founded by husband and wife duo Mr. Alessandro Gallo and Ms. Francesca Rinaldo.  Per MrPorter.com, the two take inspiration from their native city of Venice, Italy and scuffed skateboarder shoes, for their urban-cool sneakers. Available here.
