The Best Men’s White Sneakers for Summer

The Best Men’s White Sneakers for Summer

Now that we’ve fully thawed into spring and summer, expect to see a lot more summer shoes walking around. Barring the flip-flop, white sneakers are the most ubiquitous summer shoe. They go with anything: Pair your Tretorns with a slim chino, your Karhus with cuffed denim, or your Stan Smiths with a tailored suit. It’s the easiest summer upgrade for any guy.

We already know what you’re thinking: You don’t want your new white sneakers to get dirty. Shoes are meant to get a little dirty, but that doesn’t mean they have to get nasty.

Jumpsuits, Stylish Workout Clothing you can Feel Great Exercising In


What you wear tells the world a lot about who you are and what you value. But did you realize that stylish workout clothing could influence how often you workout, too?

Research from Victoria University in Australia shows that putting on exercise gear (that is, clothing specifically intended and designed for exercise) can actually encourage you to work out. Possible reasons for this so-called “exercise facilitation” effect include functional design, size, fit, color, and price.

As for the type of exercise clothing which will help you get your heart rate up the most, a lot of that comes down to personal preference (as well as the more tech-y aspects of moisture wicking, compression garments, and smart clothing, aka “e-textiles”). That said, one of the growing trends in the athletic attire aka “athleisure” industry recently is the jumpsuit or onesie.

Yup: they’re not just for the 80’s and early 90’s anymore! Read the rest
