A shoe has so much more to offer than just a walk. Shoes transform your body language and attitude, they lift you physically and emotionally.
HARDY AMIES ONCE SAID: “IT IS TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BE WELL DRESSED IN CHEAP SHOES.”
This doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on your shoes, but a moderate investment combined with knowledge of the right pairs to acquire will surely make a huge difference when it comes to your style. So gentlemen, if you think you are well dressed, take a second to look down your shoes and see if you are right.
Anytime I meet someone for the first time, after the way they are styled, the next thing that grabs my attention is their shoes. Every now and then, I see guys especially in the corporate establishment, rocking a nice outfit. Neatly cut well-fitting suit , nice shirt and tie , wonderful wrist wear and belt, but the shoe – hmm – the shoe is nothing to write home about. It’s either it’s not the right shoe that should go well with the outfit (e.g. wearing a suit with flat loafers and socks) or just not the right shoe for ANY occasion … yeah, I really mean any occasion. You know that kind of shoes that should have gone into extinction together with lost species (for e.g. The all-famous Square-Toed Shoe).
Funny enough, I still see people wear the square toed shoe. After I saw it again this morning when I stopped by an eatery to grab breakfast, I knew it was the good Lord speaking to me …”Son write about this! ”
So as I’ve been commanded, I’m sharing these 3 men’s shoe types you need to stop buying and alternative shoe types you should buy instead. Enjoy!
1. AVOID SQUARE-TOED SHOES
This is that One Pair of Shoe You Should Never, Ever Buy! Avoid square-toe shoes by all means – Clunky Square-toed shoes were so popular in the 90s, fashion has now strayed far away from this non-classic look and they should never come back into fashion. They’re clunky, they’re not elegant, they’re not stylish, they usually come in form of lace-up or sometimes they come in loafers. They look horrible and you should avoid them at all cost. So if you still have them in your shoe closet, please discard them. Get some slimmer and much more attractive shoes.
2. AVOID OVERLY-POINTY SHOES
Avoid extremely pointy shoes, especially those that raise up at the toe. That kind of shoes are made for elves and unless you are an elf, you shouldn’t be wearing it. It just doesn’t look good and I know I have said this before in the previous article on shoes and believe me I will say it again because it just doesn’t seem to get through. A shoe should never be too pointy, too round or too square, they send the wrong message.
3. AVOID RUBBER SOLE DRESS SHOE
Men should absolutely avoid buying rubber sole dress shoes. Unfortunately, this is a very common style sin! One main reason why men go for rubber soled dress shoes is because they are often more affordable than quality, leather-soled dress shoes. But the truth is dress shoes are dressy, therefore you need a quality leather sole to go with it. Another disadvantage is that rubber soles could be dangerous when walking on slippery or wet surfaces, a good leather sole won’t let water in even if it’s raining.
You have heard it, now let’s go over to the type of shoes you should own.
