Thank you for wearing black sneakers

Some guys ooze cool. They just can’t help it. Good hair, cool shades, a nice dose of surplus style with the canvas jacket. A+. But my favorite thing of all? The black sneakers. Allow me to explain.

I think it’s very hard for men to wear the right dress shoes with jeans. And one thing I don’t personally like, are black dress shoes with jeans. Especially the shiny ones. Gives me the heebs! This guy agrees with me.

Enter the black sneaker! Dressy enough to wear on any occasion that is denim appropriate, but they are less obvious than say a white lace-up or high-top. They’re like the cool guy’s “dress shoe”. Ammiright?

Also, please note that when I say black sneakers, I don’t mean these. And fellas, let me know if I’m wrong about this. Feel free to weigh in!
