The Men’s Sneaker That’s Perfect for a Day in Wellington!

Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city and an area you’d love to explore. With exploration comes much walking, standing, and commuting if you don’t have a car. As such, you need a pair of men’s sneakers fit for the task.

The men’s sneakers you must use should be comfortable enough to reach 10,000 steps around the city without a glitch. 

They must be versatile, too, so they will be appropriate for the different activities you’ll be doing around the city—brunch, sightseeing, riding the public transportation, shopping, dinner, drinks, and if you’re still up for it, dancing.

Your comfort depends on the kind of sneakers you have, so choose wisely. And if you cannot decide independently, our Spendless New Zealand team will suggest something perfect for a day in Wellington. So if you’re excited to discover the best ones to get you around, let’s start!

What are Slip-On Men’s Sneakers?

If you don’t want to spend time preparing and dressing up, you’ll love the slip-on type from Spendless New Zealand. These shoes lack laces or fastenings that add a few more seconds to your prep time. 

Wellington is so beautiful that you don’t want to waste another minute pulling, adjusting, and tying laces. So, we recommend getting these and maximising your day around the capital city.

If you’re travelling to Wellington, you'll love how the lightweight slip-on shoes do not take up space in your luggage. Spendless NZ has this style in several colours, but you should get the one in brown canvas. 

While black matches all other hues available, brown is more vibrant and has more character. Plus, the brown ones match better with colourful outfits, especially those in blue.

Taking photos while you go around Wellington is a must, and you want the pictures to capture a more stylish version of you. 

Years later, you’ll likely look back on the trip, view photos, and comment about your chosen slip-ons and how they made the trip extra memorable.

More importantly, if you’re coming into Wellington by plane, you'll likely go through security checks that require you to remove and wear your shoes quickly. 

So you’d thank us for suggesting slip-ons, as you don’t have to fumble through laces and straps in your hurry to go through the checks.

Let’s look at the different things you can do around Wellington and how these versatile sneakers are perfect for each!

Top fusion brands for men's sneakers include Polo Ralph Lauren, New Balance, Converse All-Star, Puma, Asics, Vans, Adidas Originals, and Nike. But if you're looking for something more affordable without compromising on quality or comfort, Spendless NZ has the best running shoes and sneaks.

1. Experience the Weta Cave Tours

If you’re a fan of anything film-related, you’ll enjoy this tour of how they created props and did work on the Lord of the Rings films. Expect to be enthralled as the world of cinema captures your imagination. 

Wear your slip-on sneakers as you walk and stand around this incredible workshop. But, it would help if you remained comfortable to avoid stopping the tour midway.

The best look for this activity is a white polo with jeans. Ensure your jeans taper at the ankles, and complete the look by wearing your pair.

2. Ride the Cable Car

Your tour of Wellington won’t be complete without riding New Zealand’s only running funicular railway. For a quick 5-minute ride, you’ll experience a slice of the capital city’s history. Look your best as you go on this exciting attraction with the help of your slip-on mens sneakers.

It’s best to wear something casual, like an orange sweatshirt and khaki shorts. Your shoes will contrast beautifully with the look. Tie them all together with sunglasses.

3. Enjoy the Winery Tour

What better way to get to know the capital city than by joining a tour that lets you experience and sample world-class local wine?

Look dapper as you visit the best wineries in your Spendless New Zealand slip-on sneakers. But, of course, it would help if you had footwear to help you maintain your balance as you walk through the best wineries. 

Here’s when you’ll realise how versatile these shoes are because you’ve been to various activities and still look good in them.

Since these shoes are easy to dress up or down, choose an effortless ensemble perfect for the winery tour. Take your tan shirt jacket for a spin with the sneakers, pairing them with khaki chinos and a dark blue button-down. Wear an oversized watch to complete the look.

4. Dine at Sumptuous Restaurants

Whatever your taste, you must try any renowned restaurants in Wellington. A day in the capital city is incomplete without making your taste buds happy. Some restaurants would likely expect you to wear something dressier than usual, especially if you’re out for dinner.

Make heads turn with your stylish look as you enter any of the city’s restaurants. But do not fret; the versatile slip-on sneakers can get you through a night of eating and merrymaking. 

While there are several ways to style these sneakers for something dressy, we recommend combining a navy long-sleeved button-down shirt with beige chinos. Also, don’t forget to spray on some cologne, so you’ll look and smell good while getting a taste of Wellington’s best!

Additional Tips on Styling Your "Mens Sneakers"

Although we’ve already provided styling options suitable for different activities around Wellington, you need a few essential tips to remember for this category:

  • Women adore it when you leave some skin between your pants and shoes. So if your jeans or khakis are long and go beyond the ankles, feel free to roll them up. Much like how guys wear their Adidas men's sneakers!
  • Avoid wearing socks or visible ones when you’re not out doing a workout. Socks help prevent odour and fungal build-up. Spendless NZ has invisible socks that work well with your shoes. 
  • Be confident!
