Leather Shoes for Men
Leather Shoes to Love and Live In
Quality always beats quantity, but why not have both? One pair of leather shoes isn’t enough—especially considering the different styles to choose from. From suede to patent, lace-ups to slip-ons, move forward in footwear that will make every step a stylish one.
Become a shoe kind of guy with these 3 styles you have to try.
Not to be mistaken for their more casual counterpart moccasins, loafers can be an on and off-duty shoe depending on material, heel height and design. A suede loafer with laces bodes well for a relaxed ensemble like a T-shirt and jeans. Replace the laces with a leather saddle piece that crosses the footbed and they become better suited for a pair of khakis, a button-up and a denim jacket.
Distinguished from other dress shoes by their signature broguing detail, brogues are fancy footwear best fitted to fine clothes. If you want to stick to business causal, wear them with a cuffed pair of navy khakis and a thin striped, collared button-down. Bring them up to their dressed-up potential and pair them with a full suit for a board meeting.
With a shape and style similar to that of brogues, oxfords are characterized by a smooth, non-embossed texture, with simple stitching around the hood and toes of the shoe. Coming in suede, matte or patent leather, oxfords can complement both informal and formal outfits. On the weekend, sport them with a pair of chinos and a slim fit T-shirt. At your 9 to 5, wear them with dark denim, a collared shirt and a linen blazer.
Take strides in leather shoes custom for your plans. You’ll stand tall with these options as your foundation.
