* Get your dad a pair of sneakers this Father’s Day
* Stylish kicks he might not pick out on his own
* 6 best-selling options every dad will love
Father’s Day is right around the corner, but there’s one problem: dads are nearly impossible to shop for. But before you wring your hands and buy your old man another boring tie, consider getting him a fresh pair of sneakers instead.
A new pair of kicks is a great gift because your dad will use them all the time, and might not know which pair to get on his own. Plus, you’ll totally get credit for helping him step up his style.
Whether he’s going for a game of golf, for a boat ride or just to the office, help him upgrade his wardrobe with one of the best-selling pairs of kicks below.
1. Sperry Striper II
These Sperry Stripers are a good choice because they’re modern, but still have some old-school sensibility that your dad will appreciate. The sneakers are affordable, and stylish with a washed canvas upper and rawhide laces.
2. Vans Classic Slip-On
Classic Vans are a no-brainer. They’re simple, easy to wear with any outfit, and always in fashion. We recommend these in premium black leather, because it gives the shoe a more high-end feel.
3. Onitsuka Tiger by Asics
If you want to get your dad something a little unconventional, go for these Asics Onitsuka Tigers. You don’t see them very often, but he’ll love the throwback vibes and casual weekend look.
4. Adidas Originals Campus
Another classic sneaker that any dad would be happy to unwrap is the Adidas Campus. They feature a soft suede upper, the signature three stripes, and minimal styling that provides a low-key look that pops will enjoy all the time.
5. Nike Golf Roshe G
Is your dad a golfer? Upgrade his golf course attire with these Nikes. They give the classic golf shoe a much needed revamp, but still look great with regular golf clothes. An even better idea: get the rest of the family to chip in for a matching golf club set to go with the new shoes, too.
6. Nike Free
The Nike Free has been a best-seller for a while now, and for good reason. It’s an incredibly well-designed shoe that works for distance running as well as training, and looks great around town too.
