5 Sneakers That Will Take You Anywhere
With increasingly cramped in-cabin quarters and baggage fees at most airlines coming in at around $25 these days, space has never been more valuable to travelers. That’s one of the reasons our O.N.S design philosophy privileges versatility and nearly interchangeable mix-and-match styling options. Of course, any traveler knows that a good pair of shoes is a must, too. And because we don’t make shoes just yet, we thought we’d help you pick a pair of sneakers that will get you through any traveling situation, without having to pack any backups.
Nike Air Max 97
This all-white retro Nike Air Max offers a taste of luxury for less than $200. The 97 comes complete with a “rippled” leather and synthetic upper and Nike’s classic “Air Sole” for maximum cushioning and comfort. Pair them with a denim button-up and khakis or jeans and a T-shirt.
MCQ Gikishi Sneakers
Every man needs some sleek black sneakers in his closet. This $300 McQ Alexander McQueen style fits the bill for the edgy, brand-conscious male. Made of black mesh with an exaggerated white rubber bottom, it’s a bit more interesting than your basic black runner. Not to mention a bit more fashion forward than your average Yeezy Boosts. This staple’s a surefire travel essential that will pair well with everything in your suitcase, but looks especially good with a un upscale athleisure fit, featuring our terrycloth joggers and sweatshirt.
Supergas were created to take you from the city to the beach and back again, so an iconic pair like the COTU is perfect for a warm-weather getaway or casual business trip. The washable COTU is also a practical travel choice, because you can always toss them in the washer if they get dirty. This affordable canvas shoe will look great with our short-sleeved Adrian button-down and grey Rivington jeans. You can even wear them with a swimsuit if sandals are too casual for your tastes.
Opening Ceremony Glitter La Cienaga Low-Top
You deserve a luxury getaway, and some glamorous, glittery sneakers like the black La Cienaga from Opening Ceremony will make you feel like royalty. Boasting a major Ziggy Stardust vibe, this statement shoe is simple enough to pair with almost anything, but have enough glitz to elevate even the most basic look. Try it with our Bax bomber and some fitted jeans, and you’ll be ready for a night out on the town almost anywhere in the world.
Oyster Holdings Adidas 350 Shoes
This fresh Adidas x Oyster holdings shoe is a marriage between Adidas Originals and the chic LA sweats brand. In an easy-to-wear chalk coral colorway, this kick pairs perfectly with warm weather staples like pleated chinos and cotton sweater.
