His Style Matters: Foundation Shoes
Style Matters to me because I know you get one time to make a great first impression. In making that great first impression you should start with your shoes. It is the foundation of your look.
As boys, we are taught that masculinity and a concern for style are incompatible. Style is about individuality. There is nothing wrong with admiring someone else’s style. What works for one man may not work for another. Men may not define themselves by the shoes they wear, but their shoes still tell us something about them. We know shoes can make or break your look.
Let’s define foundation: The base on which something stands. Gentleman, be sure to invest in your foundation. It will take you a long way.
Expensive vs. Inexpensive
I don’t think low price always means low quality, or that high price necessarily means high quality. I generally look to see if the shoe is constructed well, what materials are used (real leather is generally reliable; synthetics can be tricky), and what style of shoe it is. I’ve had pretty good luck finding cheap shoes that are comfortable and durable, but there are definitely cheap shoes that are just cheap.
Generally speaking however, I believe expensive shoes are constructed better… I don’t know if they are necessarily always more comfortable, but they’ll usually last longer.
Here are several different types of shoes you should have in your closet.
- After Hours
WORKDAY: A lace up oxford is a classic choice for any office environment.
After Hours: A polished black loafer presents a sophisticated look for nightlife.
The weekend loafer is a low leather step-in shoe with an upper resembling a moccasin but with a broad, flat heel.
Driving moccasins are the classic choice for those transit but need not be behind. The wheel to wera them.
The sneaker is a high or low shoe, usually of frabic such as canvas and leather, with a rubber or synthetic sole.
Hello reader can you help me out. Why do women pay attention to men’s shoes?
