The Best Suede Male Sneakers for Spring/Summer 202215.04.2022
Spring is a season of new beginnings. This makes it an ideal time to refresh your wardrobe. There are many things to consider, including transitional jackets and lightweight knitwear. But the best is to start from the beginning. This can only mean one thing: it’s time to hang up the winter boots and put some spring in your step with a pair of seasonally-appropriate suede sneakers.
This footwear is kept in hibernation throughout the winter. Because the soft fabric’s nap is easily damaged by weather conditions, it tends to be the most popular sneaker material at this time of year. Once things dry out, suede is a great option for sneaker design. It adds texture and enhances colour, and gives a luxurious touch and finish to our favorite models and silhouettes.
There are many options, but there are a few that stand out from the crowd. This collection includes everything you need to know about our favorite styles, from classics to trendy throwbacks. These are the best suede sneakers you can buy this spring/summer.
New Balance 990v2
New Balance, the Bostonian sneaker company, is a true innovator with the 990 line. These upscale suede running shoes were the first to be launched in 1982. They were the most expensive on the market at that time.
Since then, the 990 has been reinvented five more times with the latest version, 990v6, due for release in late 2022. We are not yet able to offer it, so we recommend the 990v2. This retro runner is a great choice for anyone who loves soft tailoring and jeans.
The Clae basketball-inspired shoe is a great option for anyone looking to buy a high-quality, suede- and leather-rich summer shoe. This shoe is made from soft Italian leather, and can be worn with almost any outfit.
We love the white and navy version. It has white and off-white panelling on the uppers. This is offset by a contrast outsole, heel tab, and sole.
Uniform Standard Series 1
A good pair of minimalist sneakers should be in every man’s rotation. Uniform Standard’s series 1 is a great choice. The ultra-clean, round-toe sneaker does not need to stand out. Instead, the quality of materials and the timelessness of its silhouette speak for themselves.
The shoe is great in leather but the suede uppers of Italian suede really give it a unique look and make it ideal for warmer months. It can be worn with just about anything.
Nike Air Max 1
The Nike Air Max 1 is celebrating its 30th anniversary. It was the first shoe to offer visible cushioning. This 90s classic runner is much more than just a shoe. It’s also a piece in design history. This shoe looks great with shorts and a good leg tan.
Recent collabs seem to suggest that Nike is preparing to make 2022 the year of Air Max 1. This means that we will see new colourways and perhaps even the return of some OG Air Max 1s.
ETQ LT 01
The ETQ in Amsterdam has many stunning sneakers, but the LT 01 by far the best. This is the original style, loved for its simple design, clean lines and fuss-free styling.
Made in Portugal, the shoe is made from premium Italian suede. It comes in a variety of classic colours that range from dark browns and navys to subtle beiges and greys. This style is a great choice for summer tailoring. It would also make a great contemporary alternative to a Derby loafer or loafer for warmer-weather weddings.
Oliver Cabell Low 1
Oliver Cabell’s signature sneaker is proof that sometimes less is more. The shoe’s simple design can be worn toe-to-toe with Common Projects Achilles Low’s build quality and looks. There are now several suede versions, each one distressed and featuring the brand’s subtle, yet striking, ‘O’ logo at the sides.
If you are looking for a minimalist, luxe sneaker that is different from the rest, this is the place to look.
French brand Zespa’s ZSP7 is a forward-thinking sneaker that takes inspiration from the chunky sneaker style while staying current. The striking design is subtle but still stands out thanks to its carefully thought colour choices and clever use of material.
We love the off-white version. It features a suede and ripstop mix for the upper, and semi-transparent portions to the midsole. This sneaker is a sporty alternative to the bulky silhouettes of the past few years. It looks great with shorts or drawstring pants.
Stepney Workers Club Dellow
Stepney Workers Club’s Dellow model is the answer to anyone who wants an affordable alternative to a Vans Old Skool or Converse Chuck Taylor Ox.
This simple canvas plimsoll has a sturdy sole and a chunky-ish design that will likely fit into your entire wardrobe. What’s the best part? It comes in suede, and in a variety of earth tones such as olive, forest green, and burnt orange.
The Gazelle is an iconic sneaker model and one of Adidas’ most loved suede designs. The Gazelle has been a Three Stripes staple since its 1960 launch, and it’s still very popular today.
The shoe has a flat sole, soft suede uppers and three leather stripes on each side. It is simple, timeless, and versatile.
