Every man needs a great pair of kicks!
The first row below are options for the gym - Adidas, Brooks, and Reebok. The rest are fashion sneakers, for hanging out, a creative work environment, or a casual night out. A pair of Vejas, for example, will look good with everything from jeans and a tee to an unstructured suit.
Vegan options - I do not endorse wearing vegan leather when it means virgin plastic. The vegan brands that I’ve indicated offer plant leather options like Pinatex (pineapple leather) and apple leather, or textile options. They may also offer plastic vegan leather - please check the materials & avoid that! I recently bought a Pinatex handbag, and I think you’ll be impressed with its durability.
