It is difficult to find the right balance with your footwear collection. Often you can own too many models of the same style and not enough of another. We’ve compiled a list for you so you can have every eventuality covered. Here are the ten shoes that will complete any man’s collection.
1) Everyday Trainers
A pair of versatile trainers is a must-have for your collection. This pair can adapt to most casual looks but do not necessarily make a statement and attract attention. The grey Adidas Gazelle shoes seen below are an ideal example.
2) Summer Trainers
Not sure what to wear with your favourite shorts in the summer? You can’t go wrong with a pair of lightweight low cut trainers. The canvass upper of Converse is perfect for Summer wearing. The shoes below are Converse White All Star Low Trainers.
3) Casual Boots
This type of shoe is needed in your collection for when a smart-casual ensemble is required. These boots offer a more refined style without the formality of other footwear options. The brown Hudson Houghton boots are perfect for this.
4) Flip-Flops / Sandals
Everyone needs a pair of flip-flops and sandals in their life. There’s nothing better for wearing on those hot days by the beach or in the garden than a pair of Havaianas. The pair featured here are the Havaianas Black Logo Flip-Flops.
We feel that everyone should own a pair of Brogues. This type of shoe can complement your formal look but will also suit casual outfits too. This is an adaptable footwear option which you really should own. The stunning Grenson Matthew Brogues are ideal.
6) Formal Shoes
Not much needs to be explained with this addition. Pair these shoes with your finest suit or business attire and you’re dressed to kill. The PS by Paul Smith black Antick Starling Shoes are the ideal example of the formal pair you must own.
7) Running Trainer
With today’s gym culture and thirst for fitness, the athletic clothing industry has boomed which means that the technology used in this type of product has advanced massively. The level of performance that can be expected from a running trainer is impressive. You really need to try the Y-3 Sprint Trainers.
8 ) Classic canvas shoes
A classic canvas shoe is perfect for slipping on over the milder months, as they’re comfortable and will complete your casual look. These navy TOMS canvas shoes are definitely a must have.
9) Sturdy boots
Whether you’re wearing them for the winter or on your active weekend away, a pair of high quality boots is needed in your collection. You really can’t get any better than the Timberland 6-Inch Premiums.
10) Statement Trainers
Finally, a pair of statement trainers is needed for your collection. This pair of shoes is intended to be distinctive and draw attention to your look. Giuseppe Zanotti red croc leather trainers are one of the best models for this.
