Camouflaging sneakers as if they were dress shoes these days is easier than ever. Dress sneakers are outrageously popular right now, and with good reason. Who wouldn't want to mix the comfort and casual charm of sneakers with the power and distinction of dress shoes?

If you're thinking of taking the dress sneaker plunge, we've got all the info you need so you won't pick the wrong pair.

Rules For Dress Sneakers

From the office to the weekend. With suit, with jeans or with chino pants. For winter and for summer. The day. The night. And we could keep on listing each combination and situation endlessly, because wherever you go, the sneakers will prevail.

The smarter the outfit or occasion, the plainer, simpler, and more fitted the sneakers should be. That’s what you should be looking for:

  • Minimalist: Monochrome style or subtle two-tone aesthetic with minimal branding.
  • Low top: Showing the ankle provides the same amount of comfort as covering the ankle, but with added style.
  • Sleek and fitted: That unconsciously reminds of a dress shoe silhouette.
  • Leather or suede: The finest dress sneakers are made with top-quality dress shoe leathers.

Your sneakers are your main accessory. Keep the rest of your outfit clean and subtle, but sharp enough to look intentional.
