Meet the Perfect Men's Shoe: the Jasper Wingtip Sneakers

August 13, 2018

Oftentimes, you can’t have it all when it comes to shoes. That pair of Chelsea boots pinch your toes. The beautiful dress shoes you love rub your ankles raw. Your favorite pair of sneakers is starting to give you blisters. Most of the time, any pair of shoes is only appropriate in certain settings with certain outfits. Will you ever find a shoe that does more – is versatile, stylish, and above all, comfortable? Allow us to introduce the Jasper Wingtip Sneakers, a perfect hybrid shoe combining the comfort of sneakers with the style of a full-brogue wingtip dress shoe.

With a sole made from shock-absorbing EVA rubber, the sleek racing stripe design is complemented by full-grain leather and suede, as well as a comfortable padded insole and full leather lining. Quality materials, style in spades, and easily dressed up or down – Jasper ensures that you no longer have to sacrifice anything for a pair of shoes.

Jasper easily elevates any outfit when paired with casual closet staples like jeans or athleisure. But the style is also formal enough to wear with a suit, and when worn with more polished garments like dress pants, button-ups and blazers, the Jasper manages to give its wearer a certain je ne sais quoi. Because looking like you tried – but not too hard – and bending a few fashion rules always makes a statement without you having to say a word.

The perfect everyday shoe should be one of quality, comfort and style, and Jasper in navy, which features a coordinating blue stripe on the shock-absorbing sole instead of the standard red stripe in the other iterations of the Jasper, checks all the boxes. The deep blue suede wingtips are the perfect companion for late summer activities like patio hangs, baseball games and street festivals. And they’re the perfect pair to aid your transition to fall’s tailgates, bonfires and weekend getaways. Wear them with a breezy graphic t-shirt and slim fit white jeans for now, and switch to dark wash denim and a chunky knit turtleneck when temperatures drop.

The remaining days of summer may be waning, but there are still plenty of opportunities for beach days before autumn weather rolls in. Swap the rubber flip-flops for something much more becoming with Jasper in honey suede. The versatile color and luxe material complement a variety of colors and patterns, even an on-trend tropical print. Don’t sleep on your sunscreen applications and bring along something fun like a ukulele. Top it all off with a pair of wood-framed sunglasses, then kick back and enjoy being the best-dressed guy on the beach.

When Kevin Joseph deemed the Jasper Black Wingtip Sneakers the “classy commuter,” we agreed wholeheartedly. The full brogue medallion wingtip upper is more than office-appropriate and the EVA rubber sole will keep you comfortable standing on crowded trains. The neutral black coordinates with virtually any color slacks in your wardrobe and works with any wash of denim for afterhours. Play with colors and patterns with a fun pair of socks to show off some personality. Complete your outfit with a weather-appropriate and comfortable knit tie and throw it your backpack when you head to happy hour.

Since we first released the Jasper Cognac Wingtip Sneakers, the shoe has evolved. Not only is each shoe hand painted full-grain leather, thus completely one of a kind, they also now feature padded sheepskin leather insole. The deep brown complements a vast variety of colors and washes of denim so Jasper pairs well with everything from a navy suit to ripped black jeans. The comfortable sole and sleek upper make Jasper in cognac the ideal travel shoe – one you won’t be embarrassed to put in the plastic bins in the security line. And since the shoes easily transition from casual to formal settings, not only does Jasper keep you comfortable during the journey, he is perfect to wear for any activity on your travel itinerary. Your laptop, camera, watch and passport are joined by one more travel essential – the Jasper Cognac Wingtip Sneakers. Welcome aboard.
