Shoes should showcase a man, although men’s shoes do not usually arouse as much interest as women’s. This may be because men’s shoes do not change much, but it does mean that shoes for men may be described as timeless classics.
The most classic types of shoes for men were designed in the 19th century. The true roots of real shoemaking for men can be found in the European fashion capitals, where, for the first time, fashion magazines dictating new trends began to appear. The men's designer shoes created then and there have survived the test of time and remain virtually unchanged today.
Among the classic shoes that come to mind today are laced oxfords derbys, buckled monks, decorative brogues, with ornaments, slip ons or moccasins and loafers, deck shoes, as well as men’s boots with higher uppers, such as jodhpurs and work boots.
Men’s casual shoes are all very well, but, in the words of British designer Hardy Amies, "it is impossible to be well-dressed in cheap shoes". Footwear is an item of clothing where the relationship between price and quality is extremely visible. Elegant men's shoes available online at Vitkac.com are made from high quality leather. The material used for the manufacture of the footwear guarantees not only the best look, but exceptional comfort. Good quality shoes can be used for years, and above all emphasise the status and style of the wearer. To properly complement your wardrobe, you should have a few basic pairs of men's shoes, above all derby and oxfords, which are obligatory accessories for the well-dressed man.
Careful selection of footwear for men is essential for casual as well asformal styling. Among the shoes perfectly suited for everyday wear are brogues, which are extremely versatile and characterised by the holes punched along the edge of the shoe. Monks are also shoes that pass the test of semi-formal and casual styling in footwear. They are distinguished by their buckle fastening. Loafers or deck shoes are other alternatives, which can be recognised by their slip on, laceless style. All of these shoes are ideal for the spring/summer period, and work best with typical casual cotton trousers such as classic chinos or shorts.
Mandatory additions are classic black and brown lace-up shoes, adding elegance and sophistication to any suit or jacket. It’s also worth checking out casual styling, such as sports shoes and other less formal footwear. Above all, bear in mind that the best men’s shoes not only complement an overall look, but they also distract attention from imperfections – so pay attention when choosing them and go for the top shelf.
