Sharp and Suited-Up
Business and style don’t have to be exclusive entities, especially when it comes to white sneakers. While styling more casual footwear with a suit and tie may seem a little intimidating at first, a sleek, cool pair can allow you to seamlessly transition from the office to after work drinks. Opt for a slim fit suit that’s tailored to your body shape, show some ankle and choose invisible socks in the warmer months to add just the right edge of informality. Finish with quality accessories, whether it be a white pocket square with a hint of colour or a classic black briefcase that exudes contemporary appeal.

Relaxed Day at the Office
For a look that’s just as refined but a little more relaxed, pair your versatile white sneakers with a blend of formal and casual elements. Break the monotony and think blazers, suit pants or button up shirts with chinos, denim, sweaters or hats. Channel that fresh urban vibe by layering a fitted blazer over a graphic, sporty tee, or mix and match other dependable style essentials with classic kicks that can take you from the boardroom to the bar all year round.
Whatever your occasion, skip the conventional men’s shoe and opt for the comfort, function and style of the timeless white sneaker!
