With Father’s Day just around the corner, time is ticking to find the perfect gift for your old man. If you were to ask him what his ideal gift would be, ‘I don’t need anything’ is a fairly dad-standard response!
So, what do you buy the man that has everything?
If you’re looking for impressive Father’s Day gifts, new footwear is always a stellar choice that’ll be sure to blow his socks off. But when choosing dad shoes, it’s important to consider his personality – all dads are diverse with what they’re into, so it can be tricky to connect the dots when you’re on the hunt for the gift to top all gifts.
That’s why we’ve put together this super-handy guide to serve you inspiration galore and help you find the perfect pair for the fatherly figure in your life. Keep reading to find out more!
For the sports fanatic
If your dad’s totally obsessed with his fitness watch and matching activewear, then a new pair of sleek running trainers could be exactly what he’s been dreaming of when he’s pumping some iron at the gym or practising for his next half marathon.
Go the extra mile with some performance-enhancing Nike or adidas dad shoes: the Renew Rival or Downshifter 8 trainers seriously look the part – even if he isn’t quite as into exercise as some! Not to forget the Adidas Originals Falcon trainers, which combine a chunky retro style (that every dad is bound to love) with plush comfort – plus, their modern look makes them a match made in heaven for a style-conscious dad.
For the nature-lover
Alternatively, your dad might be more of a wilderness explorer who loves to get up close and personal with the great outdoors. Why not consider getting him a brand-spanking new pair of walking shoes or boots? A couple of our top picks include the Karrimor Aerator with a state-of-the-art sole for extra grip on tricky surfaces, or the Hi-Tec Eurotrek, designed to withstand the rigours of light hiking.
If your dad’s the green-fingered type who enjoys nothing more than mucking into those flowerbeds at the weekend, we’re sure that a new pair of wellies could make for a much-appreciated and practical Father’s Day gift.
The durable material and seamless construction of the Crocs Allcast wellies means that no water will battle its way in, no matter what the outdoor activity! As an added bonus, they’re the unbeatable option for muddy festivals too (so if you ever find yourself needing a pair, these are the go-to – just ask your dad nicely first!).
For the holiday dreamer
Of course, not everybody’s dad is a fearless adventurer, devoted runner or dedicated gardener. In fact, for most of us, it’s probably fair to say that our dads are much more comfortable with the thought of taking it easy and putting their feet up. If your dad struggles to hold back his excitement when the sun comes out, then a pair of summery sandals could help boost his holiday mood to new heights. Whether he’s decided on a British staycation this year or he’s off gallivanting abroad, a pair of leather sandals will offer ultimate relaxation and are perfect for a chilled-out, holiday-ready look.
For the laid-back lounger
We can all appreciate how hard most dads work – whether he’s had a long week of meetings at work or can’t help himself with non-stop DIY at the weekends, he deserves to put his feet up in style!
A new pair of Dad slippers will provide some much-needed comfort when he does eventually decide to sit back and relax. You can’t go wrong with some classic moccasins either – with faux fur lining and suede-feel fabric, he’ll never want to take them off!
Whatever your dad’s style, you’ll find an amazing choice of last-minute Father’s Day gifts that are bound to impress without breaking the bank. Explore the full range of men’s footwear online or visit us in store to find out more!
