Tommy Bowe has you covered

We are a society that just loves our trainers these days! We wear them not only with our gym gear, but with our shorts, our turned up jeans and even our dresses.

They have become such a fashion statement, but that begs the question - What do you wear when you want a change from trainers? We need something that can take us from day to night in effortless style. This can be easier said than done for those guys out there. So I have pulled together a few great styles that are simply flying off the shelves here at McConnell’s, to give you a slight nudge in the right direction. Lloyd & Pryce by Tommy Bowe is such a big player in this dressy casual area and the range just keeps getting better.


A big player from the Lloyd & Pryce collection by our favourite, Tommy Bowe, is Boss. This is such a versatile and easy to wear style that you can literally wear with everything. Dressier than a trainer, but not OTT if you are heading out in your jeans and a tee to watch the match (which the majority of the population are if you are not already in France!). The soft leather upper with suede trims leaves it comfortable and breathable, whilst the mix in the colours keeps it fresh and gives it a lighter look. And if they are good enough for Mr Bowe then they are good enough for us!


Steyn from the same collection is another great wee style. Coming in tan or navy you can take your pick and off you go. With a padded tongue and heel collar you are sure to have comfy feet once you team these with the soft leather upper. The punched detailing adds a little extra to the simple styling of this one, whilst the lace up front means your foot isn’t going to slip out when you are pulling out your best dance move during a night out!


Number one rule: don’t sacrifice style just to get comfort! Nowell has it all, comfort, style, sophistication and effortlessness. The rich tan or navy with contrasting red are perfect teamed with your tailored jeans or chinos. Keeping with the premium leather upper and flexible sole unit, you really have an all in one shoe! My personal fav is the tan, as it is so versatile!


A wee bargain from the Bowe collection is Joseph at a steal for only £34.99. These are perfect for summer with your jeans or shorts. The contrasting elements on both the tan and navy uppers give it simple detail to keep it from look heavy. The stitching accents add a handcrafted feel to the shoes while the interchangeable laces give you the option of contrasting. You will not lose the comfort of Joseph even with the small price tag and you definitely won’t compromise on style!

So basically what I am saying to you guys out there, a good leather lace up sneaker is a must have in your wardrobe! It will transport you from day to night and won’t compromise on style or comfort. Keep them bang on trend with your chino shorts or tailored jeans (I am not talking super skinnies here by the way!!) So get in and get these styles before they go as sizes are selling fast!
