The Sneakers
You Need
on Your Radar

We teamed up with the MR PORTER
crew to talk trainers

There's something about the early days of fall—perhaps it's our inability to shake that new school year feeling—that gets us excited about buying new sneakers. We asked the always dapper gents at MR PORTER for the sneakers they're loving right now. These are five of their favorites. We paired them with a few sneakers that the Valet. team is loving (and buying) at the moment as well.
