Geek Chic Footwear from Goliath Trainers
The Italian footwear label Goliath started back in 1937 when the brand began making sports shoes for footballers and cricket players. Back then the shoes were a practical and quality choice but now Goliath trainers are also well known for their fashion and style. The fashionable Italian label has earned an enviable following for their funky retro trainers and they are taking the men’s footwear world by storm.
Goliath trainers have become hot property since OC star Adam Brody stepped out in them on the TV show and they’ve been a hit ever since. The retro feel of the Goliath trainers are in keeping with the growing popularity of the ‘geek chic’ fashion craze which has a huge following.

It’s so important to get the trainers and accessories right when going for this look as if they’re not then you could end up in nerdy fashion disaster territory. The geek chic look is a really popular one, especially for autumn and winter so if you’re looking to mix up your look and try out some fashion Mark Ronson style then check out our top tips below to help you perfect the art of nerd...
• For a casual look for the day, perfect for hanging out with mates, team up a pair of tight fitting dark jeans (preferably skinny) with a casual plain t-shirt (you could have a vertically striped tee but no loud colours or outrageous prints) and a pair of Goliath Curb trainers. To further accessorise this laid back look you could add a large shoulder bag to carry your daily essentials, a hat and a pair of black rimmed glasses.
• For a night out with your mates on the town or a hot date then you need to step things up a geeky gear. A checked shirt (any colour) is a geek chic must have item and it looks awesome on a night out when teamed up with a pair of skinny dark denim jeans. Braces are making a massive come back for the autumn and winter season and you can use them in this look to put the perfect finishing touches to the outfit. Finally, a pair of Goliath trainers such as the Stabilo Goliath trainers would be great for a slightly dressier affair and include both leather and suede in their funky design.
