5 Must Have Men’s Shoes

January 25, 2016 at 5:57 am |

I love fashion. Well, that goes without saying. I feel fashion is a good way to express your mood. And I am definitely a shoe lover. Marilyn Monroe very rightly said “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world”. But right now I am not here to talk about us women. Even though many won’t agree, shoes are equally important for men as well.

It’s often said that the first time you meet someone, you’re judged on a number of factors – with three of the main counts being your hair, handshake and footwear.
Whether it’s a job interview or a first date, if you’re hoping for approval from a prospective employer or potential love interest, you’re probably not going to get it when they glance down to see a rather sad-looking pair of battered old winklepickers.

Christian Louboutin once said “There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn’t exist for men”. I couldn’t disagree more. I notice men’s shoes. These days I have been noticing my guy friends sporting different shoes for different occasions. Safe to say, men have started becoming conscious of the ‘shoe-fashion’.

There are different types of shoes suited for different occasions and fulfilling different requirements. “There are too many options”, one might say and shoe-shopping both online and in retail stores might become a little overwhelming. So, I did some research and narrowed down five must-have shoes in every man’s closet.

1. The Brown Leather Brogue

Why is it called a Brogue, you ask? The traditional punch hole design on this silhouette’s upper is known as brogueing, thus giving it its name.
Unique Feature : Versatility
Goes well with : Navy, Grey, White

4. White Sneakers

The sneaker had found itself all but banished to the darkest corner of the wardrobe, or even worse – the gym bag. More and more, we’re seeing the style dominate the runway, the streets and even the red carpet – all thanks in no small part to game-changers like Kanye giving sneakers their official seal of approval.
Unique Feature : Comfort
Goes well with : Casuals, smart casuals

5. Desert boots

More dressed-up than a sneaker, but not quite as proper as hardbottoms. Your go-to option for a casual everyday outfit. They are also called Chukka boots.
Unique feature : Full coverage, comfort
Goes well with : Casuals
