Christmas Shopping: Trainers for him
This week we’re looking at sneakers for him and we’ve whittled it down to our top 5 picks for guaranteed success this Christmas! Getting an all rounded approach is difficult, so we’ve tried to split it up by offering practicality, individuality and value for money – because ultimately it all depends on your budget. But not to worry, we have something for everyone!
First up, a classic crowd pleaser – the Vans Old Skool. You simply can’t go wrong with this one, whether you are replacing a beat old pair, or introducing something new, the Old Skool is a great starting point for someone who is into their sneakers. Black and white is a colourway that everyone can rock and the canvas upper makes them super practical and easy to care for. We also have several other colourways available if this isn’t quite what you’re looking for!
Moving onto a solid mid-price sneaker we have the Saucony Shadow 5000 Vinatge in tan, navy and white. The Shadow 5000 is the ideal lifestyle shoe, stylish enough to be worn everyday, but also offers very strong foot support and a shock absorbing sole, which makes it a suitable performance shoe. If you’re buying for someone who is on their feet all day and wants an easy to wear sneaker, the Shadow 5000 is a great all rounder!
Entering the higher price range and bringing some bold colours to the selection is the Karhu Synchron Rally Pack in Glacier Grey. With a soft pig skin suede and water repellent mesh upper, this sneaker is built using premium materials, taking inspiration from the race car driven by Carlos Sainz at the famous Calafat Circuit. Karhu delivers unique style and colour palettes that are a dream to look at, if you’re looking for something a little different this Christmas we couldn’t recommend Karhu anymore!
Again priced at £110, we’ve got the bold and beautiful Saucony Grid Web. Nineteen years on from its initial release, the OG colourway has made a return in the form of the much loved chunky dad shoe. Now these aren’t for everyone, but if you are striving to make a statement then look no further! Designed for durability and comfort, the outrageous style comes in the form of an architectural outer design, delivering an overall futuristic appearance. Bladerunner 2090?
Finally, if you’re willing to splash out a bit more and by something extra special, the Karhu Legacy ’96 pack might be just what you are looking for. Sometimes nothing looks better than a fresh white sneaker, the Legacy comes with a soft white leather upper with purple mesh detail to really add that Wintery feel to your outfit! However, if leather isn’t for you the Legacy also comes in jet black, which is composed of a faux suede upper and at a slightly lower price of £105 – So the choice is all yours!
