5 shoes a Man should Own
But these days the tide is changing. Men across the world are becoming more and more obsessed with shoes in all the myriad of options now available to us, that I might even be so bold as to say we’re more obsessed than women .
The White Trainer
The reason is because they are slim and simple. No excess detailing and easy to keep clean. Try to think of your new trainers as you would your clothes; tailored. This way they can be paired easily with anything you’ve got; jeans, chinos, suit trousers, you name it.
Maison Margiela and Dolce and Gabbana
What matters is that they are of decent quality leather and you keep them clean! They’ll look great with any pair of jeans or chinos but they’re not the shoes you wear with your suit. These are your casual go-to’s.
Make sure you get a pair that has a substantial sole to them so they can still be worn when the weather gets rough. All shades of browns look good too, so take the time to decide whether you’re bold enough to go for a tan or oxblood pair or just a simple chocolate. They will look great with your suit to work and are a real easy way to smarten up your jeans. Just be sure to make sure the fit of your jeans suit the brogues – a baggy fit will engulf them.
The Black Derby
if there was a pair of shoes that I would recommend you to go the extra peny with, it would be this. No matter the occasion they will never be out of place. If you invest in them they‘ll be the most versatile shoes you own and will last you forever.
The Desert Boot
this shoe is the definition of smart/casual. Smarter than trainers but not quite in the league of the derby and the brogue, this one could end up being the work horse of your footwear militia. Always looking their best with a pair of jeans or coloured chinos, I’d suggest you get a pair in a neutral tone such as brown, beige or navy.
