The sneaker scene is a growing element in the menswear world. Over the past decade what was once a niche market, reserved only for the internet savvy hypebeasts, has grown into a wardrobe staple for any fashion conscious guy. Whether paired with a light washed jean, or adding a twist to your favourite suit, the sneaker is here to stay – even in the world of sartorial tailored clothing.
New to The Helm this season are the Converse Chuck Taylor 1970’s edition sneakers. They boast a broader toe-box and higher sole than the original Chucks. Our first delivery features their seasonal “True Navy” high top and classic black and white low.
Premium sneakers have also seen a surge in popularity. With hand finished details and the use of world class materials, people are warming to the concept of owning sneakers that are crafted with the same attention to quality and detail as their dress shoes. This season our Buttero footwear collection features three silhouettes that fall into the premium category.
CARRARA Tobacco suede low with Vibram flex groove sole.
TANNO Cream Low with cotton laces and leather footbed.
TANNO Grey Mid with cotton laces and leather footbed.
Lastly, Magnanni’s sneaker offerings have been stellar and this season we stepped into the collection with their tennis leather lace-up in a sophisticated light brown.
