The sophisticated flash of these Dior Homme black leather calfskin sneakers really needs no explanation. We love the black leather sole for its sleek, all-over monochromatic appeal that's only further punctuated by the velvety contrast between patent and matte detailing. This shoe is simply made for a tuxedo cameo.

Common Projects' black leather trainers are structured yet impeccably streamlined. The white leather tip at the heel is a wink to trend-forward styling that also makes the shoe all the more suitable for that fancy tailoring.

Known for its sharp, trend-forward men's and women's wear, the house of Lanvin also has a way with sneakers, as can be seen in these crocodile-embossed calfskin low-tops. The handsome, dark-gray color only elevates the sophistication level of these pairs, so much so that you can certainly consider these for all those wedding-day tuxes.

There is little need for patent-black brogues when you have Mr. Hare Cunningham sneakers on your guy's side. Crafted from sumptuous Italian leather, the Vachetta leather low-tops have a rich depth of color along with carefully designed, sleek detailing. Fresh yet formalized, the Cunninghams have "tuxedo" written all over them.
