There’s nothing better than a sleek pair of athletic shoes. Thanks to the whole Athleisure trend - mixing athletic wear with casual outfits - it is now completely acceptable to walk around in running shoes.
Try and keep them as clean and classic as possible - emphasis on the clean. Make sure you stock up on those sneaker cleaning kits to keep them star white. Try pairing them with a bright sock for that added flair, like how Tshego Koke styled his.
You gotta love a good loafer hey. It’s hard to think of another pair of shoes, for men, with their versatility. One pair can take you from the office to the club to running errands around town to a wedding to a yacht party. Or on set like the ones Maps Maponyane wore on Top Billing.
They're also a great trick for guys who have a hard time in more formal shoes like brogues, these have more breathing room and comfort throughout the day.
I know these get a lot of shade on the timelines but they remain a wardrobe staple. With its 1960's style clean lines, slim profile and relaxed fit, I don’t believe that they will go out of style any time soon. They can be dressed up and down quite easily. The trick, though is get the ones in dark colours like black and navy. Why? The brown ones are most common but they don't match as nicely with darker wash jeans.
If you were in the market for two pairs, I’d recommend a one classic leather style like these on Zulu Mkhathini, and a suede number for something a little bit different.
