New York Magazine Explores the Evolution of Footwear Choices for the Mature Man

New York, NY – [03 of September, 2023] – In the ever-evolving world of fashion, one aspect that often goes overlooked is the significance of age-appropriate footwear choices. New York Magazine's latest feature, penned by renowned style aficionado @donetodeathprojects in this month's "Ask Chris Black," delves into the essential topic of mature footwear selections for men over 40.


As the adage goes, "With age comes wisdom," and that wisdom extends to one's wardrobe choices. @donetodeathprojects passionately argues that it's time to retire certain styles from the sneaker rotation, particularly for those entering their 40s and beyond.

"I don't want to see a 40+-year-old man trying to rock Travis Scott Dunks or any other footwear that requires a raffle to own," says @donetodeathprojects. The hunt for exclusive sneakers might be a thrill for some, but it's a game best suited for younger enthusiasts.

In addition to discussing the evolution of sneaker choices, "Ask Chris Black" offers sage advice on other fashion-related dilemmas, such as tie length and crafting a "tasteful tailgate look."
