It’s become pretty common for grooms to don sneakers at their weddings these days. And why not? They’re terribly comfy, and if your groom is sporty or a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy anyway, wearing sneakers with his tailored suit won’t be too much of a departure from his personality.

1. If you don’t want to stray from tradition too much, make sure to choose a sneaker style in black or a pair that has black for a dominant color.
2.  Choosing sneakers with leather or suede elements lends a more dressy feel.
3. If you want to go all-out offbeat, try pairing your sneakers with patterned suit pants, as described in the groom’s fashion section in my have a rock and roll wedding guide.

Below are ten highly popular and very now wedding sneakers for the groom (as of 2010).
