5 Must Have Men’s Shoe Style

5 Types of Men Shoes that you should have

Looking good isn’t self-importance; its self-respect by Charles Hix  is highly relevant to this read. To make a lasting first impression, it is imperative that you wear and carry the ‘right’ pair of shoes- the ones that match your personality and definitely the event type.



We present to you our guide of shoe styles that are a must have in a man’s wardrobe:

  • Running Shoes

A sleek pair of athletic shoes is a must have to compliment a man’s gym routine and if not that then they can be worn with casual outfits as well. Color combinations like black and white, grey and white, navy blue and white are safer options since they can be worn with many outfits. Dark shades like red, green and neon colors are not generally recommended since they grab attention (in the wrong way!) by overpowering the outfit.

  • Sneakers

A man’s wardrobe will be incomplete without a classy pair of sneakers. Sneakers are not restricted to casual outfits only but can complement dressy outlooks as well (if pulled off correctly). Pairing sneakers with a pair of denim and a nice blazer can do the trick but under no circumstances can they be worn with a suit (it is a fashion disaster). Go for a simple, clean pair of sneakers rather than a heavy-duty, chunky one to give a positive, light, and easy-to-relate to vibe.

  • Moccasins

Moccasins fall mid-way under a dress shoe and a sneaker- highly comfortable and recommended to anyone who prefers comfortable footwear. Trick with this category of shoes is to get a pair with the ‘right’ size. Mocs should hug your feet nicely, it’ll be a miss if they are loose around your feet. Getting them in shades of dark brown and navy is a part of men essentials but remember to wear them with no-show socks.

  • Dress Shoe

A round toe, formal, dress shoe can’t be missed out from the list. On a bare minimum level, a man needs to have a pair of black and brown dress shoes. From casual outfits like jeans and tee to formal suiting- dress shoes can be paired with all. I would recommend a plain toes while others may prefer cap toes- no matter the choice, the aim is for you to look fashionable regardless of the outfit or scenario. Varieties of brogueing (although very stylish) come in later after you have invested in classic black and brown dress shoes because they can’t complement all outlooks.

  • Boots

A pair of brown leather boots is our final recommendation for a man’s wardrobe. They can be paired with smart/business casual outfits easily along with outfits for cooler months of the year. The reason why I have chosen brown as a color particularly is because it works like magic with a pair of dark blue denim jeans or woolen trousers. Boots are sturdy but going for the pebbled –brown leather ones particularly adds a touch of class in one’s outlook.
