THE 5 ESSENTIAL SHOES
Hello, my fellow Bro’s!
I feel like everyone has that one thing that they love, and that they always want more of. For some it may be video games, hats, sports jerseys, or watches, but for me, it is definitely shoes.
I have always had a love for shoes, I feel like they add so much to your outfit. I believe they are truly worth your money, and will be a good investment. I totally get that most people cannot have a plethora of shoes in their closet. That is why I have come up with a list of the 5 shoes that every guy should have in his closet.
Lets start with drivers/moccasins! This type of shoe is super versatile, and they are great because they make you look classy, and fashionable. They are definitely not as “fun” as sneakers, but they truly create a very sophisticated vibe. The shoes pictured above are the Louis Vuitton “Monte Carlo” Moccasins.
Next, lets talk about the Sneaker! Sneakers are a must-have for so many reasons. They are comfortable, they work with so many outfits, and they’re definitely on the cheaper end of the luxury shoe spectrum. There are so many sneakers you can choose from, whether they are luxury, or non-luxury. The sneakers I am wearing in the picture above are the Gucci “Ace” Sneakers. I would highly recommend these sneakers, they are comfortable, stylish, & add a lot to your outfit.
Now, lets move to boots. Many people would argue that boots are a seasonal shoe, but I strongly disagree. A good Chelsea Boot can last you a very long time, and I believe they can work year round. The boots I am wearing are from Nordstrom, and I absolutely love them. You have the option to choose between suede, and leather. I have both types, and leather Chelsea Boots will definitely last you longer. Suede Boots look amazing, but can come across a bit seasonal. You can never go wrong with a black or brown leather boot.
Lets talk about the most comfortable shoe type on this list, the athletic shoe. Athletic shoes are great for sports, working out, and ath-leisure. I love the look of nice athletic shoes with a simple outfit. It is a go to for me when running errands, going to school, and obviously working out. My favorite kind of athletic shoes are definitely the Adidas NMD. This style of shoe looks good with shorts, jeans, athletic pants, and anything else. They come in a variety of colors, and styles. I would 10/10 Recommend these to anyone!
Lastly, I am going to cheat, and talk about 2 types of shoes. The dress shoe is a staple in a man’s closest. Whether you are going to a job interview, wedding, or a night out, you can never go wrong with a dress shoe. I am a fan of the classic, shiny, black, lace up dress shoe, but I love a tan dress shoe as well. If you’re deciding between the two, you have to ask yourself if you wear more black, and charcoal grey, versus more blue, and lighter grey. But lets say you want the look of dress shoe, but not as formal? Your best bet would definitely be the oxford. Oxfords are classy, yet youthful. They add a lot of personality to whatever you’re wearing.
