Footwear fans, get ready to fist pump. Ever spot an awesome pair of shoes and ask yourself, “How am I going to rock those?” Lucky for you, we’re one step ahead. We’ll be showcasing two Head Office Style Masters wearing the same pair, yet styled to their own personal beat. Here they go, toe-to-toe.
The contender: HLODWALD
Defender #1: Evan, Men’s Product Development, ALDO
This fly cat knows how to spot a winner when he sees one – he’s got a hand in developing and creating men’s product for ALDO. And his sneaker game can’t be beat.
“I went with a casual look for these sneakers. I’m a big sneaker guy, so finding a versatile sneaker to match my summer wardrobe is key. “ Natch.
ULTIMATE SUMMER VIBES
Now how does this style guru step out in the hotter months? “5 panel hat, cuffed shorts, man tank, shirt tied around my waist, sunglasses and canvas plimsoles.” And he rocks it like nobody’s business.
Who does Evan take his style cues from? “Les Freres Joachim and Dany Dos Santos a.k.a. Alkarus”. Told you this guy’s got cred.
Evan is the ultimate sneaker aficionado, and he knows a winning pair of kicks when he sees them. These denim printed sneaks were a no-brainer for him: “Canvas is on trend right now and is always perfect for summer.
Defender #2: Frederic, Project Manager Of Store Operations, Process & Technologies for ALDO
As a guy who keeps his fingers on the pulse of the latest in technology – while always having fun in the process! – Fred has a knack for wearing professional threads… shaken & stirred.
KEEPIN’ IT SNEAKY
So when it came to styling these sneaks, Fred wanted to “combine a dressed-up look with nice casual sneakers to create a modern business look.” It’s all about “high-low,” after all.
Whether getting ready for a day at the office or a night out, Fred turns up some Flo Rida, especially “Let It Roll.” “I know it’s old, but there’s no better ‘get ready’ jam than this one in the summer!”
“Honest answer: I’ve never been inspired by anyone, fashion wise. I’m mainly inspired by my overall environment, the seasons, home decor trends, and activities I take part in. Fashion isn’t something you can pinpoint, you just feel it…” Truth.
CAN’T BEAT COMFORT
For Frederic, comfort is key – after all, swag needs to be about comfort and style. And for these denim kicks, it was love at first stride: “I just love the style! They can be worn with a very casual outfit just as perfectly as with a nice suit. Can’t skip the fact that these sneakers are the most comfortable shoes I’ve had in years!”
