Style Pick of the Week: Beckett Simonon Morgen Trainer

One brand that makes two ridiculously good-looking sneakers in a modern update of a vintage silhouette? Too good to be true, right? Not with Beckett Simonon.

Quick, look at your feet. Are you wearing stylish summer sneakers? Better yet, are you wearing anything from Beckett Simonon? If the answer to those two questions was “No,” you’re in luck today — and all you have to do is sit back, click a few buttons to cement a pre-order and consider yourself set. Yes indeed folks, we’re talking about the eye-catching, unique and well-made Beckett Simonon Morgen Trainer as part of our ongoing Style Pick of the Week series — and boy, is there a lot to talk about. Beckett Simonon crafts its footwear using exacting methods, and that’s why it pays to pre-order and then wait for the results. I was lucky enough to check out a pair of the brand’s beautiful leather chukkas during a fall weekend in New York last year, and I was mighty pleased.

The folks at Beckett Simonon know what they’re doing every step of the way. And in this case, you’re getting highly discounted deals on a range of product aside from the handsome, vintage-inspired Morgen Trainer, too. The brand offers up different collections every month, focused on everything from stylish Italian leather belts to functional and fashionable leather backpacks and a truly stunning array of simple yet handsome men’s dress shoes. What’s the upshot of all this? That is to say, you get either the full-grain, calfskin leather and water-resistant suede of the Beckett Simonon Morgen Trainer in Navy or the Beckett Simonon Morgen Trainer in White from the same brand that makes such intricately crafted dress shoes. In short, that means you’re getting one great-looking pair of sneakers at a heck of a price. Hey, maybe you’re getting more than one pair — that is, if you also pick up the Morgen Trainer in Black  in addition to the two stunning sneakers shown at the top of the page. Yes indeed, any of the three colorways should make any list of the best sneakers for men — without a doubt.

Beckett Simonon
A super-sleek, modern take on the utilitarian Germany Army Trainer. Nicely done, Beckett Simonon.

Why go for sneakers that cost as much — at full retail — as your favorite pair of dress shoes? That, my friends, is simple. Trust me — with the sort of step-by-step care  and construction normally reserved for suit-ready shoes, the Morgen Trainer is classic, crisp and eye-catching. It’s not every day you can say that about a pair of sneakers, and that’s a great thing for discerning shoppers like you and me when it comes to the Morgen Trainers (in each of this sneaker’s three highly wearable colors). Inspired by the original design of the German Army Trainer, the silhouette of these shoes is rooted in functionality — and yet nowadays, kicks like the Morgen Trainers look just as great with slim light wash denim and a patterned short-sleeve shirt as they do with more utilitarian gear.  You also get the construction that comes with a well-made and distinctive contrasting rubber sole — not too often found on today’s more minimal sneakers. With all of those bonuses, it’s going to be mighty tough to resist picking up any colorway of the Beckett Simonon Morgen Trainer — and waiting for them to arrive at your doorstep is going to be that much harder.

Will you be picking up these handsome, versatile sneakers? Let me know in the comments!
