Traditionally, suits are always paired with a sleek pair of oxfords or brogues but at Men’s Folio Malaysia, we think otherwise, which leads us to pair sharp suits with a series of limited edition sneakers.
And who better to flaunt these looks than some of Malaysia’s hottest male influencers and models?
Artists and influencers Feng Xiang (@fengxiang_xiang), Lucas Lau (@lucaseelau), and Wil Beh (@wil_beh) show us that there is still a soft-spot for fly kicks in your luxury-inspired wardrobe. From Gucci with Puma and Vans to Dior Homme with Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost and Calvin Klein with Nike Flyknit Racer, the choice are limitless!

“I’ll be the first to admit that my emphasis is on style over comfort and I’m really fond of kicks with unique aesthetics and designs that stand out.” – Wil Beh

“My favourite is, of course, Nike; and I’m perfectly fine with pairing streetwear elements with a formal attire like a tuxedo. You won’t see me in leather shoes unless it’s absolutely required.” – Feng Xiang

“I like trainers that are simple and clean. You’ll see many pairs of basic white sneakers on my rack at home. I have ten pairs that I rotate including Nike Air Force 1s and Adidas NMDs that are my absolute favourites.” – Lucas Lau
