No man’s wardrobe is complete without a pair of sneakers. Or a few pairs. Men’s sneakers are an ideal choice for daily wear as they tap perfectly into the masculine style. No wonder that this go-with-everything fashion staple is appreciated by men of all ages. A suitably selected pair of sneakers can also successfully replace your dress shoes. An intriguing design, a broad colour palette, and extravagant embellishments – if you want your outfits to always remain in style, men’s sneakers are a real must-have.
Men’s sneakers – an all-year-round staple
The craze for men’s sneakers was started by the legendary frontman of Nirvana – Kurt Cobain. From then on, these brand shoes with a sporty twist have continued to win over fashion-conscious men and carved themselves a secure spot in their wardrobes. These shoes will serve you well at any time of year. In the spring-summer season, get your hands on white or black canvas sneakers. In the autumn and winter, go for quilted hand-stitched shoes with a long shaft. Winter models hold the foot steady, mitigating the risk of injury and providing extra protection against the cold.
The comfiest shoes in the world
Men agree that this sportlike iteration of luxury shoes gives them virtually unparalleled comfort. Trends change, but men’s sneakers are still chosen by demanding clients favouring shoes which deliver on both practicality and style. Men’s sneakers stand for comfort.

Sneakers, trainers, plimsolls – a fashion hit of many names
In recent years, sneakers have taken the world by the storm. What are their origins? At first, these original shoes were regarded as typical sportswear. However, they were soon spotted by stylists specialising in the urban style or even runway fashion. In the second half of the 20th century, more and more brands ventured into the universe of sportswear.
The first world-famous sneakers – Nike Air Force 1 or Adidas Superstar – were designed for basketball players. Yet their exceptional design and comfort turned them into one of the most popular fashion choices of men across the world. Their appeal as not only sports shoes but also practical daily wear for moving across the city got instant recognition.
Sneakers in the 21st century
Not many people know that the origins of men’s sneakers date back to the 19th century when they were popular gym and beach shoes. The name comes from the word “sneak”, as men’s sneakers come equipped with a rubber sole that lets you move around without making noise. First models of sneakers were launched in 1892 and the mass production of tennis shoes started more than twenty years later. The craze for sneakers came to Europe in the 1920s. From then on, the demand for these brand shoes showed steady growth. Today, who could imagine not owning at least one pair?
How to style men’s sneakers?
The answer is simple – however you like! Sneakers are so multifunctional that they go with almost any kind of outfit. Brand shoes from Apia.pl will complete countless ensembles, so you’re limited only by your imagination. The most popular design is the classic – lightweight leather sneakers which pair perfectly with sportlike or casual clothing. For a timeless outfit that never goes out of style, team your sneakers with a pair of universal jeans and a polo shirt in an original colour.
On chillier days, swap your polo for a loose sweatshirt or a trendy jumper. Men’s sneakers go with a classic shirt as well. The combination of toned-down sneakers with a pair of jeans (worn spots for extra fashion points) and a patterned shirt is a well-tested option for half-formal meets, a regular day at the office, or a cinema trip. Recent seasons have demonstrated that men’s sneakers work also as an intriguing addition to a formal outfit comprising a suit and a shirt, giving a more casual feel to the entire attire and bringing out your individual style. If you’re looking for footwear perfect for chillier days, check out top-quality low-cuts made of real leather. They will make a great set with canvas trousers, a lightweight checkered jumper, and a warm down jacket.
How to clean white men’s sneakers?
Cleaning your sneakers may be a headache. Especially if they’re men’s sneakers in white. Unfortunately, as these shoes are prone to getting dirty, they require regular maintenance. Your prospects look better with original shoes made of real leather, which is more durable than canvas and easier to clean. But how to proceed with canvas shoes? Below you’ll find a few tested home remedies to keep your favourite shoes in perfect shape.
Dish soap not only for dishes
With just a drop of dish soap and baking soda, your sneakers will shine as new. Dampen them with water and gently wipe with dish soap and soda. Take off the dirty foam with a paper towel. Leave for drying in room temperature. Similar effects may be achieved with your regular toothpaste.
Vinegar with baking soda
Mix vinegar with baking soda in 1:1 ratio. Clean the product with a brush (a toothbrush will do). Leave the product on the shoes for some ten to twenty minutes, then wash with water and leave to dry up.
Bleach or Cif
A trick for dirty soles. Just spread the bleach or a Cif Cleaner over the rubber and then take it off with a cotton pad. The soles of your sneakers will look as good as new.
This method is believed to be risky, especially if you’re washing brand shoes. Use it when all else fails or if your men’s sneakers are in a really sorry state. Unfortunately, machine-washing may cause deformations. Machine-washing is not recommended for winter sneakers, either, because of the vulnerable quilting. Let’s consider machine-washing a method of last resort.
