Sponsored: Autumn is finally here – and the stores over at The Galleria Al Maryah Island think it’s high time the fellas update their shoe collection…

From Burberry to Bershka, sneakers have become an essential element of every man’s casual wardrobe. You can comfortably wear them with a pair of jeans for a catch up with mates at the IMAX or dress them up for a night out at a fancy restaurant with your better half.

Our pals at The Galleria are now in the thick of their Step into Style campaign, which continues up until November 9, and have both autumn and winter seasons’ footwear needs sorted. Read on for our handy guide to the best of the best…
