While sneakers are casual, all-purpose footwear, tennis shoes are actually built to a higher specification, offering better grip, lateral support and shock absorption without sacrificing comfort.
That’s why I love the M235i Gran Coupe so much. If the M2 is a spiky track shoe and the 2 Series is a regular sneaker, the M235i is that tennis shoe. You can slip it on every day, but also depend on it during intense activity.
And like a good tennis shoe, it costs just 20% more than a sneaker. A brand new M car for under $50,000? I’ll take mine in blue.
