Trending Men’s Sneakers in 2022
With new sneakers constantly on the market, it can become hard to narrow it down and decide which pairs you actually want to upgrade your wardrobe. And with summer just around the corner, you might want to opt for some brighter and lighter colors to pair with your holiday outfits!
Sandals are all well and fun on the beach, but we all know that to trek and cover long distances, sneakers are the way to go. Not only are they comfortable, but you also don’t have to sacrifice style either! From classic men’s Converse sneakers to the once again fashionable dad shoes, the choices are endless! We’ve compiled some of the top sneaker styles that have been trending this year, so keep reading below.
You can’t really ever go wrong with a classic pair of white sneakers, and they’re just as popular, if not even more so, this year. They elevate any look and are a true embodiment of smart casual, a category that can be a bit complicated to put together.
But you can be sure that white sneakers fit that category seamlessly and will go with most, if not all, of your outfits. You can dress them up or down depending on the sort of look that you want to go for. Whether you wish to go for a bit more of a statement look or want to go for minimalism, white sneakers will fit both accordingly.
On the complete opposite end from the minimalist shoe are the chunky sole sneakers that have made their way onto the scene. These are statement shoes like no other, and the blocky look is great to experiment and play around with if you want to try something that’s a little unique or strays away from your typical sneaker style.
The bright, bold colors offered in these mean that you could really put together a top-tier outfit that would have everyone talking, and what better cherry on top than a pair of daring shoes? They might not be for trekking over long distances, but you’d undoubtedly be the talk of the party!
Whether you’re a fan of this style or not, you can’t deny the fact that the sneakers or ‘dad shoes’ that were around in the 90s have made a fashionable comeback, and this time around, it isn’t the dads who are wearing them…
The extra cushioned, thick soles and oversized look go beyond just style, and we can confirm that they’re some of the most comfortable sneakers out there. So not only is it socially acceptable to wear these out and about now, but it also means you could probably walk around in these all day without ever getting achy feet.
Another style that has remained comfortably in the top trends and will continue to remain that way into this year as well are high top Converse-style sneakers. They may not be the best thing for running, but for a day or night out, these are a great choice.
The endless design options are a great perk, to begin with, but they can be styled in so many different ways and worn in more or less all seasons, making them one of the most versatile shoes out there.
As the name suggests, athleisure fashion has developed sneakers in its style too, and it takes the best of both worlds to give us athletic leisurewear from top to bottom. As time goes on and trends develop, it’s clear that not all sneakers are worn for athletic/exercise reasons, and not all are stylish enough to be worn out and about either. This is where athleisure sneakers enter the scene!
More and more athleisure sneakers have begun to offer features like waterproof and breathable fabrics while remaining almost weightless with springy soles so that it almost feels as though you’re walking on an actual cloud!
A material that isn’t traditionally on a sneaker, suede is now one of the most popular fabrics that allow for the shoe to be worn more casually. Although offered in neutral colors so that they aren’t an eyesore, the pops of suede color still allow them to be a fun shoe that could be worn on any occasion!
Aside from colors, the variety of textures on a sneaker is also eye-catching and adds a little more ‘oomph’ to your final look. You’ll just need to be careful not to get them wet!
