Featuring the Grenson Archie V sneaker hybrid

Just because you can’t sway too far from a suit and collared shirt at the office doesn’t mean you can’t make sneakers work. Sure, you probably can’t get away with a pair of regular trainers, but you can try what we like to call the sneaker hybrid. They’re as smart as a dress shoe on top and as comfortable as a sneaker on the bottom - double win.

Featuring the Fred Perry Spencer Premium Leather Sneakers

If you’ve got a little more wardrobe freedom, and still like the sartorial edge of a suit but want to wear your comfy kicks, then simply incorporate the two. The only advice to keep your clean and not clumsy is to choose sneakers that are just as polished as your blazer and pants. Look to smooth leather or suede styles but don’t be afraid to go rogue with a modern design like the Asics Gel-Kayano Trainers.

Featuring the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Hi

Most creative offices will allow you to wear whatever you want, if not encourage it, but it doesn’t excuse you from looking professional. Luckily most sneakers fit the criteria, even sportier styles make the cut if they’re kept clean, so there’s no reason not to stock up and show off your eye for design with a new pair for every day.
