Navigate your life in a set of stylish shoes – whether it be leather, suede or canvas – don’t be caught in a lift wearing a pair of scruffy shoes. In fact, don’t be caught wearing anything but a well maintained pair of shoes. This should be rule number one for the gents however, the suit is something that men don’t tend to think about until it is too late.
There are 3 main shoe types: Classic (all-round dress shoes like the Oxford, good with a suit), Boot (these come in classic versions like the ankle boot with a slight heel, or the casual cool desert boot, good to team with a pair of jeans) and Casual (sneakers, runners or thongs, the most casual and comfortable pair to own, good for more casual occasions).
Shoes are a personal choice but please, whether you’re stylish or not, keep them regularly shined, resoled and well maintained.
If you’ve found your soul mate, don’t be afraid to buy the shoe in extra colours or even 2 or 3 pairs at a time of the same colour – a good shoe can be hard to come by sometimes.
