How to Wear: Premium Jeans & Sports Trainers


Running, retro athletic and training shoes all remain popular in spring ’14- many brands have released new silhouettes.

But for those who don’t feel comfortable pulling them on with smart clothing or simply don’t know what to wear them with, here, we’ll discuss how to make it work.

#1 Keeping it slim

Given, this look might not be for everyone but rolling your jeans up shows a small aspect of detail which can amount to a big difference in aesthetics. Originating from an urban street fashion, this is an edgy twist ready to make your jeans and sports shoes work in tandem.

#3 Colour co-ordination

To pair your multi-coloured shoes with some equally bold jeans, tops etc. should be a cardinal sin. To wear expensive branded jeans with top-of-the-range sport trainers, you’ll need to make sure the colours are complimenting and make the outfit fir together seamlessly- without creating an eye sore!

Solid, block colours will allow you to wear a more extravagant shoe, highlighting it as the key piece in your outfit. Beware though; there is a very fine line…

The Brands

Whilst the options are somewhat endless of which trainers you might want to incorporate into your smart outfit, finding the right jeans to work with them will inevitably prove more difficult.

The darker tones of Evisu or G-Star Raw’s slim jeans will keep your look visibly tailored whilst dulling down the louder statement shoes.

Edwin’s perfectly crafted tapered jeans are the perfect cuts to experiment with a turned up hem or implement the slim ankle fit touched on in #1.

The Shoes

A new age running trainer may not be applicable for creating the retro look but it is the perfect model to front up a modern urban city outfit. Add it to some smart, dark skinnies and add a raincoat and cap to finalise the look.

The retro runner/athletic shoe is the only trainer which will compliment your expensive lighter coloured jeans, use the rolled up hem to show you still have a sense of modern styling.

The classic training shoe- the classic trainer is the most versatile sports shoe, an Adidas Gazelle or Samba is the staple accompaniment to a pair of smart jeans, timeless and largely responsible for the fusing of sports shoes and smart street clothing.

Something extra?

If you turn up the hem on your jeans, most men choose to wear no socks to reveal skin, but if you don’t like this style and quite frankly want to stay warm and hygenic, you can turn the rule book on its head and wear some statement socks for a look which is equally as credible.
