Shoes are an important part of a person’s body language. They are a reflection of how you feel about yourself at any given point in time. Good shoes are like good friends who stick by you in thick and thin times. However, being a man, shoes become an important part of your personality since they are one aspect of your dressing that steer you apart from others.
You may wear slouchy unkempt shoes, and your whole appearance goes in for a toss. You may wear great designer shoes, but if you feel uncomfortable in them, your garish walk will tell the tale! That is exactly when you know that choosing the right shoe was one aspect you neglected while planning your whole look.
With men’s fashion having evolved to a point when there is no dearth of fashionable clothes in the market for the modern metro sexual man, the awesome thing about being a guy is that you can probably cover them all up with a few basic pieces of shoes that are not only stylish, but also extremely comfortable to walk in. That sure makes some sense, right?
Some basic types of shoes that any man should probably have in their closet
1. Basic Black Lace tie-ups: Now these are something every man should own a pair of. Investing in a pair that is streamlined and sleek looking will keep you going for years. These kinds of shoes go great with jeans as well as formal trousers. So on Fridays, when you have to go partying with your mates right after work, you are assured that it would be a fuss free transition with your shoes in place.
2. Loafers/Moccasins: Now, once you have the Black Lace ups in place, you must invest in apair of trendy looking, yet neutral colored loafers. Loafers are a popular shoe type that goes great for casual as well as formal wear. Going clubbing or for a fun evening out with friends can never be hard with a pair of Loafers!
3. The evergreen Sneakers: Now here we are, talking about my favorite kind of shoe, something that I truly believe everyone, irrespective of their gender, should own a pair of. Sneakers have off-late seen a sudden comeback in the “fashion-shoes” category and it has grown out of the “take to your gym” or “trekking shoes” label. Men are going crazy with the trend and we've seen celebrities like Kanye West taking the sneaker trend to yet another level. When paired right, sneakers can make you look lively and add elements of fun to your personality.
With these three basic types of shoes, we’ll have the men covered with all of their outfits (well, mostly!!) .
