Sporty Spring Shoes for the Guys

Sporty Spring Shoes for the Guys

Vans Authentic Mens Plimsolls

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking of ditching the clumpy, heavy boots of winter and opting for something a bit more bright and breezy. To match some of the key menswear trends of Spring/Summer 2012, plimsolls and sports-style shoes are perfect; they look cool with a range of trousers, including jeans or chinos, but equally can be worn on smarter occasions with a shirt and formal trousers.

Here at Littlewoods we’ve got a great range of menswear and mens shoes for Spring Summer 2012, and the new sports-styles shoes are some of our favourites. For summer, choose a pair in a lighter colour or brown rather than navy or black; the KG Mens Firth Slip-on Shoes are a great choice to pair with jeans, or with a pair of charcoal or dark brown suit trousers.

Lacoste Ampthill MB SPM Mens Boots

Dark blue or denim-look plimsolls are perfect with jeans, but we also like them with this season’s bright trouser trend. Try the Lacoste Andover VY SPM Mens Plimsolls, with a cool denim-look upper, or the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Ox Mens Plimsolls in royal blue, with a dark red or bottle green trouser for an on-trend look.

White trainers and sports-style shoes are still incredibly popular, and these in particular look great in summer with a suit (trust us!). Choose a classic style, like a deck shoe or simple lace up, for the most sophisticated look: Lacoste is a well-respected and iconic brand, so their Lacoste Bateau Mens Plimsolls are the perfect accompaniment to summer! Similarly, we also like their Lacoste Ampthill MB SPM Mens Boots for a slightly different look.

adidas Originals Nizza Hi Mens Trainers

Another option this Spring Summer is to go all out for the brights trend with some funky plimsolls. Choose a pair in a bright (but versatile) colour – these colour pop plimsolls will look good with jeans but also try them with a dark suit or other subdued outfit for a great contrast. The Vans Authentic Mens Plimsolls in bright red are a particular favourite; the Vans Era Mens Trainers are also good if you fancy something a little less brightly coloured, as they have a subtle burgundy and grey colour scheme. For a more sporty look, the adidas Originals Nizza Hi Mens Trainers in blue, orange and white feature the distinctive adidas stripes for a cool, slightly retro look.

The most important thing with wearing your new sports-style shoes for Spring Summer 2012 is to keep them in good condition: there’s nothing worse than scruffy trainers or plimsolls with a great pair of jeans and a shirt, so keep them clean and don’t wear them tramping about in fields. Well, at least until festival season!
