Finding the "Perfect Pair"
Imagine this. You walk into a sneaker store, all giddy and excited to purchase your newest pair of kicks. You’re thinking about the all latest silhouettes and imagining how it’ll look on feet. Should you get a black or white pair or go for something more daring such as orange or yellow? You end up miserable as you just can’t decide which one’s for you.
With the insane amount of styles available in the market, choosing a pair of sneakers today is much easier said than done.
Here at Capital, we always aim to make sneaker shopping as easy and fun as possible which is why we’re letting you in on a little secret. Sneakers look so much better when they fit you right. No matter how expensive (or rather inexpensive) your kicks may be, the wrong fit will spoil your entire outfit.
Before anything else, let us help you identify what body type you belong to. Generally there are three body types for both men and women. Ectomorphs are lean and skinny while endomorphs are characterized by their bigger proportions. Mesomorphs land somewhere in the middle of the spectrum.
Peep our body type guide above and then proceed to read which kicks we think look the best on your build!
SHOP NOW: ADIDAS SAMBA OG
SHOP NOW: 574 CLASSIC
With their lean frame, Ectomorphs are best suited finding a pair of sneakers that are sleek such as the Adidas Samba OG and the New Balance 574. Both silhouettes are sure to stand out and direct all attention to your kicks instead of your frame.
SHOP NOW: 247
SHOP NOW: HUARACHE DRIFT
Ah, the Mesomorph. Muscular and athletic, Mesomorphs can get away with wearing almost all sneaker styles. The New Balance 247 fits right in a Mesomorphs wardrobe as it combines a sleek frame with materials built to move. Guys and gals in this group can also opt for a bit more size with options such as the Huarache and Air Max lines.
SHOP NOW: AIR FORCE 1
SHOP NOW: EQT BASK ADV
Endomorphs need cushion and durability in their kicks. Chunkier silhouettes such as the iconic Air Force 1 or the EQT Bask ADV are right up their alley. The wider build and bases on these silhouettes provide ample support and comfort with every step. Not to mention the sturdier construction in these models that are sure to withstand whatever your day might be.
At the end of the day, whichever your body type may be, the most important thing is to be comfortable; with yourself and the shoes you have on your feet. There is definitely no right or wrong pair. It’s really just a matter of highlighting your features and making the most of your God-given physique. Still having a hard time deciding?
