By now, you’ve attended enough weddings, business meetings, and other formal events to know the difference a nice dress shoe can make to your entire look.
When looking for a dress shoe, a pro tip is to find a simple, classic style that can be worn to the office or a night out on the town.Brogues give the perfect example by offering that broad style with a clean, polished look and unique perforations. The clean up is almost as effortless as the style, just wipe with a damp cloth and you’re done, making them ideal for any man always on the go.
The new business casual shoe is a notch above a sneaker but not as formal as a dress shoe. The Wahoo Sneakers by Sperry are perfect for slipping on for another day at the office and go with chinos, jeans, and everything in between.
Shake it up with a collection of a variety of lace-up and slip-on shoes to keep it interesting. Both styles go perfectly with a busy lifestyle, so you can transition from work to family time with no problem.
The latest casual men’s footwear are a reliable pair of leather boots. The slimmer fit at the top of the ankle give off an effortlessly cool look when paired with skinnier fitting pants. While these might be too casual for work, this is the perfect weekend shoe and go with just about any outfit, from your favourite sweater to your best ripped jeans.These kind of boots are perfect for the fall and winter months, and some are even waterproof, like the chelsea boots by Sorel. Sporting these shows that you’re the type of man prepared for anything Mother Nature can throw at you while still keeping your style.
