Shoe's Your Daddy!
Dad shoes are one of those things that started off as a joke you started using ironically but somehow just stuck around and now that’s your thing!
New Balances have come a long way from Ryan Reynolds chucking Steve Carrell’s sneakers away in “Crazy Stupid Love” to becoming every sneakerhead’s must haves!
But it doesn’t just stop at dad shoes! Just like these chunky, comfortable kicks have been embraced with open arms by the fashion world, dad fits are becoming a streetwear staple. Workwear, wide legged jeans, crew socks, cargo pants and long shorts all screen comfort, durability, functionality and uber cool!
New Balance recently dropped their latest collaboration with JJJound and we love every bit of it.
If you copped these beauties and wondering what to pair them with, Capsul has a few fit suggestions bound to take you from Dad to Daddy *wink wink*.
Look 1: Pair the NB x JJJounds with the Carhartt WIP Cargo Jogger Pants in Cypress and the Market Neanderthal Tee. Layer it with the Pleasures x Roland Work Jacket. Accessorise with the HUF Good Fortune Socks and Pleasures x Akila Reflex Sunglasses.
Look 2: The Styl- O Label Carpenter Denims sits perfectly on top of chunky sneakers making this a great combo with these NBs. Throw on the Carhartt WIP Masters shirt to give it a classic workwear inspired look. Put a fresh twist on the classic look by accessorising with the Stussy Madras Bucket hat, Pleasures x Playboy Mansion Sunglasses and Carhartt WIP Crew socks.
Look 3: The Carhartt WIP Single Knee Chromo Pants paired with the Rust coloured Pleasures Hated LS Tee and the HUF Funny Feeling Socks gives a cool look with just a tiny pop of colour. Hook the Carhartt WIP Measuring Tape Keychain on for an interesting detail.
Look 4: Get them legs out with the HUF Workman Denim shorts and truly show off these New Balance 991s. Pair it with the Carhartt WIP Pest Control Tee creating a look in muted shades. Daddy-fy this fit with the HUF Lightning Quilted Cap and RIPNDIP Euphoria Backpack.
Look 5: The HUF Boyd Pants Chocolate colour complements the earthy tones of the New Balance 991 x JJJound. Add a bit of contrast and freshness to the look but not going too crazy with the Carhartt WIP classics like the Pocket Tee in Blufin and the Essentials Bag in Hamilton Brown. Accessorise with the Market Growth Market socks to finish the look.
