5 Sneakers Every Rhode Islander Should Have

A couple years ago I watched a video by GQ about 5 sneakers every guy should own (video at bottom of the page) and I’ve always had the urge to make my own list. So that’s what I did. But I didn’t follow GQ’s categories fully. I made this list for people who live in RI and really anywhere with the unpredictable weather that we have.

1.) The Running Sneaker- A sneaker that you can put on for the gym and continuously wear it throughout the day without it looking like you were just at the gym.

2. The Mesh Sneaker- A breathable sneaker that will keep you cool for the events that you aren’t able to wear sandals to.

3. The Casual Sneaker- A Sneaker that you could dress up with khakis and a button up and still be comfortable.

Adidas Stan Smith

4. The Canvas Sneaker– This is a sneaker that you’re able to just slide on with little thought on coordinating with your outfit because of the simplicity of it.

Vans of any model

5. The Snow/Rain Boot- This is the boot that you wear when we get snow throughout the winter and even into the spring because that’s how Rhode Island weather works.
