10 Style Tips That Every Sneakerhead Should Know

Sneakerheads love sneakers, but do they know how to dress? Here are 10 tips that they should take into consideration.


It's almost 2015, and we're in a new era of the sneakerhead. No, we're not referring to a new technology that's coming out next year or something that happened at a recent sneaker release. We're talking about how someone who has an affinity for sneakers puts themselves together. Sneakers and clothes have long had a strong connection, but they're becoming more and more connected. 

With the influx of clothing brands and fashion designers that are given sneaker collaborations, you'd think that sneakerheads would become well-versed in the world of the runway. But if that seems intimidating, there are also basic cues that the average person who just picked up a clean pair of Air Max 90s, and doesn't want to look like a total schlub, can pick up on. Rather than brushing up on months of men's style magazines and trying to figure it our yourself, we've put together a handful of simple but effective bits of advice to follow. Here are 10 Style Tips That Every Sneakerhead Should Know.
