Because I’ve been getting a ton of requests from friends and readers… In my humble opinion – these are the essential shoes that every guy needs to own. Here we cover every category, from white kicks to loafers to boots. Lets start with the sport shoes, a pair of Common Project sneakers (in all white) happen to be my absolute favorite because they go with everything and are perfect for everyday wear. Next up are the Nike Roshe’s – a sleek but modern running shoe, for on-the-go errands and working out. Remember boys, just because you’re hitting the gym or grabbing food doesn’t mean you can’t look your best. For going out at night – a black (possibly patent) leather sneaker is great (white soles are not ideal). A man that can pull off a loafer/driving shoe is okay by me, pair them with a lightweight look or wear for traveling. But the real challenge comes with wearing boots, the right pair is key, as well as the right slim fitting jean… good luck. For those dressier occasions, a monk strap or oxford dress shoe. Personal favorites of mine are Ferragamo and Prada. I highly recommend splurging on your shoes boys, because A – you don’t need many at all, and B – a nice pair of the essentials will last. After years of experience with two brothers, boyfriends who needed help, I think I’ve got the right shoes for all you clueless guys… Shop below:
