Summer Sneaker Guide for Dads

Every Dad needs a sneaker that gets him through the day in style and sometimes, even into the night.  This season, designer kicks feature retro-inspired chunky soles, bold color-blocking and high-tops. Minimalist designs are understated enough to give an evening outfit just the right edge.  



A running shoe with a chunky sole and considered details like hand-painted edges, Bottega Veneta’s Speedster sneaker is crafted from calf and unlined technical mesh.


Gucci’s off-white leather distressed Screener sneaker references the old school shapes and materials of 1970s classic trainers—complete with a vintage Gucci logo.


Ideal for off-duty weekends, Bally’s dark green King leather sneakers feature a flat sole, logo patch at the tongue and side logo branding to show ‘em who’s king.


Ermenegildo Zegna’s high-top Cesare sneakers are made of smooth light gray and blue leather with micro-mesh inserts, soles with tread grooves and XXX logo on the sides.


Classic dads can add a bit of style to their stride with Ted Baker’s ASHWYN trainers. The polished pair in a classic Derby style is sleek enough to wear with a suit or even with a tux when an event calls for creative black tie.



Louis Vuitton’s LV Trainer black and gray calf leather sneaker boot is an avant-garde high-top featuring a signature on the side handwritten by artistic director Virgil Abloh. 



So fresh and so clean: Canali’s perfect-for-summer White Calfskin “C” athletic-style sneaker, with a white rubber sole, perks up any pair of casual pants and a blazer.
