Men's Dress Shoes

If you had your choice, you’d probably wear sneakers every day, but the modern man needs to be prepared for anything, and that means having an assortment of men’s dress shoes at the ready. Whether you’ve been handed a big promotion and you want to look the part or you have tix to a black-tie gala this weekend, it’s essential to have the right shoe to suit the occasion. After all, a dapper dress shoe quite literally completes the look. It’s the crucial last piece that pulls your whole ensemble together. That said, let’s explore the quintessential formal shoes a well-rounded wardrobe needs. We may even throw in some styling tips to help you suit up.

Oxfords
We’ll start with a classic style that every gentleman’s closet requires. Oxford dress shoes are sleek, minimal and go with everything. Some styles—like the cap toe oxford—are dressier and pair well with tuxedos and slim-fitted suits, while others lean towards the sportier side with flexible rubber outsoles in contrasting colors. Styled with a focus on casual comfort, these oxfords can still be worn with everything from jeans and tees on the weekend to chinos and dress shirts for men Monday through Friday. Perhaps the dressiest oxford of all is the wingtip oxford, also known as brogues. This perforated style adds a little extra panache to special-occasion ensembles. 

Monk Straps
If you’re in the market for men’s slip-on dress shoes, the monk strap is your go-to. Typical laces are replaced by buckles and one or two straps on this stylish shoe. Also considered a multipurpose style in the footwear world, the monk strap shoe can be worn sans socks with rolled-up jeans or with a bold-hued sock and a power suit. The styling options are endless. So, too, are the designs and fabrications that monk straps are offered in. From patent leather black dress shoes to cognac suede loafers, a monk strap design can be as casual or dressy as you like.

Penny Loafers
Way back in the day, a pay phone cost just two cents, and loafers were designed with just enough space to slip two pennies in there—hence the penny loafer was born. An iconic shoe still, stylists are continually reinventing the many ways you can work penny loafers into practically any outfit. Wear them with everything from long socks and wool pants in the winter to linen pants and a crisp white button-up in the summer. It’s yet another multifaceted shoe that can be styled for any climate or occasion.
