Popular Shoe Styles For Men

OK guys, get rid of those old sneakers, and give them to the second hand store. What do you mean you bought them from the second hand store? If they are not retro-cool, then give them back. It is time for men to take more notice of their shoes. You wash and hopefully wax and polish your car, right? Well you need to pay at least as much attention to what kind of shoes you buy and how you take care of them. Our recommendation is don’t sacrifice on quality.

Yes, we know you can get $10 tennis shoes on sale at Super Cheapo-mart, but those are best worn when you are painting the kid’s playhouse in the back yard. When our goal is to be a well-dressed man, then quality, especially in the shoe department, really counts. This does not mean you need to overspend to buy them. There are fashion outlets for the upscale brands that have good deals on quality shoes, so go hunting for them.

Here are the rules for buying quality dress shoes. Rule number one, they must fit properly to be comfortable. Rule number two, they must be made out of leather. Why leather? Because it lasts forever. Women know diamonds are forever. For men leather is forever. The oldest known leather shoes are leather shoes from Armenia and they are still intact, even though they are over 5,500 years old! Rule number three, you need at least one pair of black shoes and one pair of dark brown shoes. Make sure you have black and brown shoe polish as well. If you don’t already have the basic black and brown shoe polish, then buy it and don’t go for the cheaters way out with the liquid shoe polish. If you have quality shoes, you should take the time to polish them properly by hand using black or brown hand wax type polish.

In the choice of style selection, if these are going to be your first two pairs, one black and one dark brown, or if you can only afford to buy two pairs and no others, then we recommend you go for a very classic style. Pick a style for men that has been in fashion for decades and one that will stay in fashion for many decades to come.

There are basically four classic men’s shoe styles that have been around for a long time and will be around for a long time more. They are Oxfords sometimes called closed lacers, Bluchers that have open lacing, Monk-straps that have a buckle instead of any laces and Slip-ons that don’t have any buckle or laces at all. Your choice between these basic four styles is really a matter of personal taste. If you don’t like tying your shoes then go for slip-ons as long as they fit properly and don’t not come off your feet when you walk in them. If you need a little more security go for Monk-straps, and if you want to be more traditional chose either Bluchers or Oxfords. One pair black and one pair dark brown and polish them each time before you wear them.

Great Shoes At Great Prices And All Online

The great thing about the internet is that we can find a vast variety of goods online that we would never have had access to in the past. Indeed, who could foresee that we could buy such diverse products as finger shoes and Hunter boots at the click of a button? There are many other choices of footwear too and by going online, we can compare prices and quality very easily.

It is always a good idea to check out these online stores well before opting to buy something from them. Take a look at the testimonials that they have on their websites and see what the customers are saying about the service that they are receiving. Also check out the returns policies and what they do in the case of goods which do not come up to par. One thing that many stores do not do is refund money on sale goods, but this does not mean that these goods must not be of merchantable quality. Indeed, even if they say that they will not exchange or refund in this instance, they can be forced to if the right language is used.

Once the right outlet has been found, many people will tend to stick to this supplier for the foreseeable future. Indeed, they will even bring in friends and relatives to the fold, so to speak, to keep this kind of buying within the family. This is why great customer care is very important for any company because one sale can create many connections to consumers who would otherwise have been lost along the way somewhere.

These outlets often look to the big fashion houses around the world to design footwear which the man or woman in the street can access. Although most of us would pale when considering that these design icons can cost several thousand dollars a pair, we all know that a good copy is all that we really need. Indeed, it is the look of the whole thing that is what we are after rather than the thing itself. If the footwear is well made, looks good, is very fashionable and is well within our budget range, then none of us mind paying that extra few dollars or so to get something that will look good and last for some time.

Although men are probably not so fashion conscious as women, these days there are those who will only go for the designer look with ‘labels’ that can be displayed on the outside of the clothing or footwear. This penchant for showing everyone who we are wearing hit some years back and does not look like it is going to end any day soon.
