Men’s Footwear – Kick-start your summer footwear collectionin Men
There is such a large array of men’s footwear out there these days, and it’s hard to know where to start! Because of this, it’s a good idea to keep an essential selection of shoes together – a pair for each occasion as it were. Whether you’re already prepping for the winter, or you’re just ready to put a spring in your step with some summer specials, you’ll need a set of essential shoes to do so.
Here we have listed five essential footwear styles for men to kick-start your summer footwear collection.
Every man should start off his summer collection with a fresh new pair of trainers. As the sports luxe trend becomes more and more prominent in everyday life, trainers are becoming increasingly important for every day wear as well as for leisure. They are perfect for the summer and with a variety of styles available at your disposal, you will be spoiled. Some brands such as Converse and Android Homme can add a touch of luxury with a finer leather or suede finish.
Is there anything classier than a clean and smooth pair of brogues? In my humble opinion, there’s no occasion in which brogues aren’t suitable footwear. Brogues are perfect all year round and offer a durability, which isn’t compromised by style. Whether you want brogue boots or a pair of leather brogues, it offers a smart and versatile type of footwear. There are various brands to choose from Jeffery West to Topman’s own.
Sandals can be a tricky one to master as a male. Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with a classic Birkenstock. They have been making their flexi-soled sandal-shoe hybrids for since 1774, and it’s easy to see why they’ve become a household name. Go classic in two straps Arizona sandals or break out a leather clog or Boston mule.
Suede shoes are not only incredibly comfortable, but they are also extremely on trend this summer. What’s more, when they are treated well can last a lifelong time. Suede shoes are great for when you want to look smart, but also want to remain relaxed and comfortable. Another wonderful upside to suede shoes is the fact they come in all kinds of colors and styles, so summer 2016 is definitely a year suede shoes can be taken advantage of.
Monk straps have seen a noteworthy increase in popularity in recent years and they can be used in casual and smart attires. Monk straps are seamlessly mixed into a tailored look, but also with a casual look. There are various types of monk-straps, so take your pick and look for genuine leather monk straps.
These essentials should be ideal for kick-starting your shoe collection this summer, taking you from the office to the beach without a worry.Last modified on
