What Kind Of Sneakers Look Good With Bootcut Jeans?

I’ve had plenty of people ask me to point them to sneakers that work well with other clothes and one question that I heard more often was about a perfect match between the sneakers and bootcut jeans.

What combination will make you most comfortable?

I wear bootcut jeans a lot, so this is my area of expertise. I love them because they make my feet look solid, masculine. I hate it when I see men wearing skinny jeans.  Leave that to the ladies, guys! They have the bodies for that. We don’t!

So what are some models that will make you look and feel great in them jeans?

In my experience, anything from Vans, DC or just any other bulky shoes go perfectly with bootcuts.

Tony Trujillo Vans SneakersI have a pair of Toni Trujillo Vans, which is awesome. There’s no other word to describe it!  Truth be told, that pair is fantastic no matter what I wear. I could well go out wearing these sneakers with just a pair of boxers and people would still throw compliments on my style.

Even the classic Vans Slip-On will go perfectly with your jeans.

Heck, is there anything that doesn’t go well with a pair of Vans? Maybe your business suit… But I’m sure you could eventually find a way to make that work too 🙂

You could also look into Air Jordan sneakers. With these, however, I can’t think of any other type of jeans that you could wear them. Anything other than bootcuts will just look silly.

What’s the problem with bootcuts?

I’ve seen people complain that some shoes make their feet look big, especially when they wear a small size. Come on, when you’re wearing bootcut jeans, what do really expect? They already make your feet look stumpy. If you put a pair of shoes just to make your feet look small, it will only look weird.

If you go for pair of Chucks or something similar, not only will it make you look like walking on toothpicks, but you’ll also ruin your jeans. I know I did this and I looked so out of place and I kept dragging my pants on the floor.

What you need to look for is a pair of shoes that is bulky enough, so it won’t look stupid. Also, you need one that has a heel large enough to hold the jeans from dragging on the floor.

Hope that helps!
