There must be an alternative universe where the chunky sneaker doesn’t reign supreme. A world where people ignore the hype of trends and think for themselves. A culture where people are empowered to wear the sneakers that they want to wear.
If you manage to make that world your reality, you are part of the group of people who can create a footwear collection that is not bound by trends and stands the test of time.
Here are my favourite sneakers to wear if you don’t like chunky sneakers.
I can already feel the hypocrisy of me recommending Veja as most guys have already hopped onto the Veja trend. So much so that it’s reaching chunky sneaker status of popularity. Regardless, they are my new favourite chunky sneaker alternative.
CLEAN WHITE LEATHER SNEAKER
A wardrobe essential, the white leather sneaker can be worn in a formal or casual look. All you have to do is keep them clean!
The canvas trainer remains a timeless footwear silhouette to wear. High-tops are my go-to, paired with white socks and cropped trousers.
Dip into your dad’s wardrobe and find the most basic pair of trainers. Think sports direct reject. Trainers that are so outdated they look like they have no place in a modern wardrobe.
These low-cut trainers can add an old school sporty touch to your look. Detailed with tapered rubber gripped soles, these runners feature a combination of multi-colour and fabric elements.
