The Importance Of Having “Wearable” Sneakers In Your Collection


You’ve got a pretty nice collection. You’ve been in the game for a few years, and have a little bit of everything you wanted. From rare collabs to quickstrikes, you feel like you’ve got all the bases covered. But do you have any shoes that you can wear on a daily basis?

It’s extremely important to be sure that you have wearable shoes in your collection. Sure, you might have a crazy limited collab or a dope PE, but is that something that you can throw on any given day of the week? If not, you need to grab a few pairs to keep in rotation.

No matter how much rare/limited heat you have, you’re going to need a few go-to pairs for everyday life. You’re not always going to have the time to put together a crazy outfit that matches your kicks to the t (you shouldn’t do that anyway because excessive matching is washed), or decide what rare sneaker you want to throw on. The weather just might be shitty too, and if that’s the case, you don’t want to mess up your heat. And when these issues come around, you’ve absolutely got to have something that you can just slip on your feet and go.

Whatever that may be is up to you. Into SB’s? Grab a clean and simple GR colorway. More into runners? Get some Ultra Boosts. Jordan guy? A pair of black Jordan I mids is never a bad choice. Nike Sportswear through and through? A pair of Air Max 90’s will never do you wrong.

You can always find something to throw on and go..and at the end of the day sneakers are meant to be worn. What do you want with a bunch of pairs that you never even break out of the box? Invest some money into some dope kicks you’ll get a heavy amount of wear out of. Wearing your shoes is more fun than hoarding them anyway…trust me.


What shoe do you consider inherently “wearable?” Do you have a specific pair that you find yourself reaching for again and again? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter, and, as always, be sure to follow us on Instagram for all the fire sneaker pictures you can handle.
