The athletic sneaker’s popularity ebbs and flows in modern menswear. This specific piece of footwear, halfway between an honest to god running shoe and a casual sneaker, has seen scores of designers attempt to make it cool through minimalist over-simplification or maximalist colorways. The Speed Runner from Victory Sportswear embodies a timeless sense of fashion: clean and comfortable. Available exclusively through Huckberry, this grey-on-grey colorway is a healthy combination of preppy and streetwear sensibilities.
The Vibram outsole and suede upper are durable, tough, and well-structured. And the thin yet cushioned lining keeps your feet cool. They’re built to tackle long walks in the park or through city streets. Plus, they look fantastic. Pair them with jeans and a button-down, chinos and a blazer, or joggers and your favorite hoodie. The Speed Runners in this color are available through Huckberry for $230.
