If you are going to have to spend the entire day on your feet, then sneakers are really worthy of consideration. Created originally as athletic shoes, sneakers have now transcended stereo types to become a universal piece of footwear that is accepted in nearly every situation. From the office to weddings and from black tie events to days at the beach, men’s sneakers show up everywhere.
Men love sneakers because of their simplicity and versatility. A single pair of shoes can serve so many different purposes that men no longer need to define what sneakers are for. From going to the gym, to walking the mall, to working on chores around the house, men understand that they only need one pair of shoes for all of those jobs.
Men’s designer sneakers have attached themselves to this concept of simplicity and just expanded on it. Designers know that men want one pair of shoes that can do it all, so designers have created shoes out of new and better materials that will make them last longer, wear better, and look terrific. Sounds simple we know, but the truth is creating a universal piece of footwear is hard work. Most designers are not up for the challenge.
However Gilt.com has gone out and partnered with designers that are willing to accept the challenge of creating new and interesting footwear that can break through the barrier of design to become something aesthetically pleasing, fully functional, and universally useful. And because these designers are selling their fashions through Gilt it means men can save a lot of money by taking advantage of regularly scheduled flash sales that feature designer sneakers and other great designer footwear.
