When it comes to finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day, it can be a difficult search. Finding the gift of fashion can be easier if you take your dad’s interests into account. Here are a few suggestions on Father’s Day gifts for the sporty dad.
For Spring/Summer 2014, Americana is hot in the fashion world. For a great fitting top, take a look at the Esquire 20 Nike Jersey that comes in a bold red, white, and blue striping with the Nike insignia and the US soccer decal. The fabric is lightweight, the theme is patriotic, and the colors will compliment any summer outfit. You can shop for this and shirts like this at www.macys.com and www.nike.com.
Next, what father doesn’t love a great watch? This is a Michael Kors Dylan sports watch with a navy face, bright white number markers, chronograph styling, and a durable silicone rubber band. It is the kind of watch that can take dad from coaching at the Little League field to the beach. This particular style can be found at www.michaelkors.com and www.nordstroms.com.
If your dad is the kind of guy who likes simple, pull-on style shorts for his athletic activities or leisure time, then check out the Under Armour Mirage 8 Men’s Sport Shorts that have a reinforced waistband, a mid-thigh length, stretchy fabric for comfort, and comes in a host of basic and bright colors. These shorts can be found for dad at Lord & Taylor and also at www.underarmour.com.
For the gift of a summer sneaker for your dad, Puma has the Cabana Mesh Sport Retro Sneaker that brings back a little of the vintage sneaker look in its styling. The leather and mesh will keep them breathable and the colors will mix well in any wardrobe. You can find these at www.dsw.com.
Lastly, if dad has a favorite sports team, why not get him a baseball cap for Father’s Day that will keep his head protected on a hot summer day? At www.lids.com, they have a huge selection of team hats that dad would be proud to wear and you would be happy to give to him.
The street look is one that never goes out of fashion –and always comes off at looking effortlessly cool (which usually takes a lot of effort!). There are certain necessities that come standard with the street look in order to make it work, and not only do they look great, but many are practical for staying comfortable all year round.
Not just great as a practical solution to keeping your ears warm, beanies are also a classic element of the street look. They come in all shapes, colours, sizes and materials so you’re sure to find one that suits your tastes. They’re even making appearances on the runway and atop the heads of the worlds’ most rich and famous. Check out Z-Flex Skateboards – they have a great range of warm, affordable headwear that looks edgy whilst still keeping the heat in! Additionally, snapbacks are quite favoured with the street-elite, and are great for blocking the sun out and keeping your skin burn free! You can get snapbacks with a wide variety of cool branding and logos, or just go for a plain colour that won’t class with the rest of your street-ready outfit!
Finding the best place to buy shoes and get the best prices is something that every single family and individual should consider when they are planning their wardrobe. Whether they need new shoes for the new season or need new shoes that are going to help them play a sport or run/walk the buyer must be able to purchase in a place that is going to help them to get a good price. Without the best pricing and fit, it is hard for people to enjoy their shoes and enjoy the activities that they partake in in their shoes.
Buying shoes for sports is a very big market. Most people who need shoes need them for a sport that they have played their whole life or for a child who is playing for the first time. Without the right shoes, it is hard for kids to feel comfortable and learn the game. Moreover, kids can grow rapidly, and they must have a chance to be in shoes that fit their foot all throughout these season even if they are growing multiple times during the season.
The best way to get the right shoes at the right price for kids is to make sure that those kids are getting shoes that they can grow into. With the help of a wise staff that knows how to help people pick the right shoes, everyone in the family can have shoes that will work for the sports that they enjoy playing. Otherwise, kids will always be uncomfortable in their shoes because they are going to feel like the shoes are just never the right size for what they need.
When choosing leisure shoes for the family, it is very hard for the family to get the right shoe for everyone if they cannot shop in a place that is not filled with all of the sizes and styles that they need. Not only must the family be able to choose from a variety of styles, but the family must be able to choose the shoe that fits their price range as well as fits their feet.
When the family can purchase shoes on a budget and get the right sizes for everyone, they will find that everyone is more comfortable whether they are playing sports or wearing the shoes around the house. In the store with the best selection and prices, the family gets more than value, they get comfort.
When it comes to men’s sneakers these days, there are so many men who wear them for more than just athletics. When you thought about sneakers back in the day, the activities came to mind were basketball, tennis, running, or training. Now, sneakers have morphed into a casual, almost ubiquitous shoe for every-day wear and have, as we will see, really become a style accessory. But fear not meatheads, despite this retail apotheosis, there is still room for the “original” providers – Nike, Tony Pryce Sports, Spring Court – to continue to retail sportswear for the active foot.
Ladies and gents, it’s time for a contest! Win a gift certificate worth £50 (approx. $77 USD) to the famous and fabulous online retailer ASOS, courtesy for the fine people at ao.com. Wowee!
Entering is simple: Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite brand of sneaker. It’s that easy (btw I’m one for PK Flyers). The contest ends on August 21 at 5pm EST.
Thanks again to ao for their generosity and good luck everyone!
Thought of by many as the original skate shoe; Vans Trainers have been a highly successful brand since their beginnings back in 1966. Originally they were a premium quality and affordable trainer that were comfortable, easy to slip on but featured the now iconic ‘Off The Wall’ waffle sole that would prove to be exactly what skaters needed for better grip and flexibility that wouldn’t fall apart after a few hours of flips, tricks and carving up the streets.
Today Vans is a household name with many sub-brands like Vans Skate, Vans Surf and Vans Snow; the most recent being the Vans OTW collection that merges urban chic with skate performance seamlessly but they also make clothing and accessories ranges too. The most famous Vans Trainers the Vans Authentics Trainers and the Vans 106 Trainers are still in production today but with more colourways and styles available with each new season.
Despite being favoured by skaters Vans shoes are very versatile and are suited to being worn for most occasions like a night out, to a trip to the shops, relaxing with friends and everything inbetween and with numerous different shoe designs you can choose from the options are endless. More recent styles like the Vans Era Trainers and Vans LPE Trainers are nearly as well known as the classic designs and like most Vans trainers have canvas uppers though some do have leather ones if you want more durability, some feature double stitching making them more rugged but every pair has incredibly comfortable insoles and always the waffle sole. Down the years Vans have released styles suited to current and changing trends but the core collections have remained constant throughout, they even have a shoe made specifically for skate performance; the Vans Sk8 Hi Trainer which has added ankle support from a padded collar with triple stitching a die-cut EVA insert for comfort a leather upper and of course the waffle outsole that makes every Vans Trainer.
There’s little question of Vans success despite quite a large amount of competition from specialised skate footwear brands around as if anyone wants a shoe that will keep their feet comfortable after a lot of wear and give the support and grip of a performance shoe; Vans trainers are certainly the choice to make.
There is really only one choice for a pair of shoes that offer incredible versatility so they don’t look out of place in anyone’s wardrobe or with any other item of clothing are durable enough to last you a long time and most importantly are as comfortable after hours of continuous wear as they were the first time you put them on straight out of the box. The brand that delivers all this in a collection of shoes that has hardly changed their designs in over a century is Converse.
The iconic Chucks were made famous by basketball star Chuck Taylor who asked Converse to make him a decent, comfy pair of trainers and they were so successful the Converse Chuck Taylor Trainers is one of the bestselling shoe designs in the world. The standard Converse Trainers are available as High-Tops making them almost boot like or you can have them as OX’s which look like a regular shoe shape and they are available in a number of different colours, the most popular being Black and Optical White, but there are many ‘core’ colours like Red, Navy and Charcoal that are always available, but every season new colours and prints briefly appear so you will never run out of choice. The majority of Converse Mens Shoes are made with canvas uppers which lends to their comfort, but if you fancy something a bit more hardy then you can find Converse Leather Trainers too, or if you want a pair of shoes that will really stand out Converse make multi-tongue and double upper versions of their trainers. The simple shape and design of Converse Mens Trainers makes them ideal for any occasion while still being iconic.
As if that isn’t enough choice from the company with the one star logo they offer many different styles like Converse Star Player EV Trainers and the brand-new Converse Chuck Taylor Chuckout and Helmsman Trainers perfect for a beach and surf lifestyle, or the latest Converse Warrior Trainers perfect for skaters everywhere.
Converse Mens Trainers can’t be recommended enough and no one will be disappointed with the quality and comfort they provide with simply brilliant style but if you’re still in doubt then chances are someone you know will have owned a pair or two and they’re sure to confirm you can’t go wrong with a pair of Chucks.
