When you think 'dad', it's easy to think socks and sandals, bad jokes and a man in a mid-life crisis. But there are guys out there who prove that being a parent doesn't have to mean sacrificing your cool. 

To celebrate all you sneakerhead 'rents out there this Fathers' Day, we’ve found some of the coolest dads on Instagram who love showing off their favourite kicks with their kids. 


On our way to see ???? 2003 & 2015

@glackster's IG account is enough to give anyone sneaker envy, but Nick and his lad take it to the next level in this awesome picture of them wearing matching Nike Air Max Infrared OG.

Bodybuilder and all round gym king @y3lla_boii, switches the dumbbells for a day out with his daughter, both rocking the Air Jordan 7 Retro Charcoal. 


Dad and lad get ready to run the streets in @kassimw's picture of their Nike Air Huaraches. 


This dad and lad duo is one of our favourites. In matching black tee, camo shorts and Jordans combo, @jace_anthony makes parenting look pretty fly. 


In these ultra-slick gold/black Air Jordan 1 Melos, with a matching infant version, @j_one209's shot has never made pairing look so good. 

With shoes from the biggest brands around, including adidas, Nike, and Jordan, you and your mini-me can match up in sneaker harmony.
