As the lines between formal and casual clothing blur and with streetwear becoming ever more prevalent in the world of high-end fashion, the ways in which we decide to dress and the rules which have previously been in place are becoming obsolete.

Slip-on trainers are a prime example of these blurred fashion lines; once the preserve of school gyms and package holidays, the slip-on has become a quintessential part of the mans wardrobe worn with both your formal attire and your casual wear.

Here’s a look at five of the best slip-ons for the coming months…

Vans Slip-Ons

When it comes to the slip-on there really is no other place to start that with the classic black and white check trainer made famous by Sean Penn and those high school slackers in seminal 80’s film Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

The must have for any skater out there; this slip-on has crossed over into the mainstream with effortless ease.

Teamed with a pair of Dockers and an oversized t-shirt, this classic will never go out of fashion.

Converse X Missoni Slip-Ons

Collaborations between designer labels and mainstream brands have become all the rage of late and these two fashion behemoths have been quick to follow suit.

Combining the famous colourways of Missoni with the craftsmanship of Converse, these slip-ons will look great with a pair of tailored black trousers and polo shirt.

Common Projects Slip-Ons

One of the hippest footwear brands on the market, Italian shoe designers Common Projects haven’t failed to miss out on the rise of the slip-on.

The brand have produced an array of slip-ons for the forthcoming season but the off-white, perforated number are the ones we here at MFM keep coming back too.

Of course if you’re going to wear Common Project trainers the rest of your outfit has to been upto scratch so wide, straight leg trousers and a old school t-shirt for that effortlessly cool look are a must.

Valentino Rock Studs

Thanks to skaters and stoner movies the world over the slip-on has always had a rebellious edge to those smooth rubber soles and Valentino have added another dimension with this studded version.

The grunge / punk look has been an inspiration to designer collections for the past few seasons and this slip-on pays homage to those rebellious times.

A must with ripped skinny jeans and a biker jacket we could definitely see Keith Richard’s rocking a pair of these.

Dries Van Noten Slip-Ons

When the humble slip-on goes from Californian skate parks to Parisian catwalks you know it has become something of a status symbol in the fashion and while we here at MFM won’t be splashing out £300 on a pair of trainers any time soon, it just goes to show those in the fashion business are taking note of the voices on the street.

If you do happen to have a casual £300 to burn, invest in a good suit (or separates) to give this look a real sartorial edge.
