“A man is known by the shoes he wears.” This popular saying explains the importance of shoes for men. You may have a large collection of shoes or you may own ‘two of your favourite pairs’, but there’s always a want for more. Expert may be able to help you with it.
Besides the white sneakers and black casual shoes, monk straps and brogues are a part of the must-have list of footwear for men this year, say experts.
The footwear trend for men in the coming days:
Monk straps and double monk straps
They are the most fashionable dress shoes. There are two different types of monk straps — the single monk straps that have a single belt and one with double monk straps. They can be paired with formal trousers, chinos and denims.
Wing tip brogues
Any wing tip shoes are perfect for formal attire. The perforated additional decoration in the toe cap makes it look sophisticated and fun. They can be paired with suits and trousers with button-down shirts and blazers.
They are the go-to shoes for formal outfit and are here to stay. But be mindful of the occasion — avoid garish coloured shoes for an upscale formal event. Instead, one should go with the classics.
The laceless boots are sleek and the most versatile of its kind. They can be paired with casual, semi-formal and formal outfits alike. Make sure that your trousers are of the perfect length so that they don’t hide those boots.
One could argue that they get dirty but they go with everything and the colour gives the option to play with it when you experiment with layering.
High top sneakers
Mix and match the print or the fabric of the shoe to suit your requirement — from leather to suede or print to plain.
Black casual shoes
Black sneakers go well if you are going for a monochromatic look this winter or your game is neutral colours.
