20 Best Grey Sneakers For Men

Step into the grey zone with the best grey sneakers.

What’s cooler than cool? Usually, “ice cold” would be the correct response. But in relation to this article, the answer is, in fact, grey sneakers. But not just any grey sneakers, on the contrary, these are the ones that will help you get your Scandinavian minimalist freak on (save for the pairs from New Balance and Orlebar Brown).

So why the fuss over grey sneakers? We imagine many of you may overlook grey as a colour choice when sneaker shopping, but the in-between of white and black can act as a sleek alternative to white, black or even blue sneakers, grey sneakers can provide that extra bit of pop without drawing attention away from your actual garments. They also work better for white or light coloured pants. So if white sneakers aren’t to your personal taste and black and blue take away from your outfit, it’s time to give grey a go.

Leave to dry naturally at room temperature. Canvas sneakers can be put in the washing machine.
