Even though you can’t own all the shoes in the world, there are some essential pairs that will complete your wardrobe. We present to you: the four essential pairs of shoes every man should own.
Anyone that lives in SA will tell you about how spring has sprung! A pair of sandals is less of a want and more of a need this season. Make sure you invest in a good pair that will last for years to come. This Tosoni leather pair is sleek, stylish and – more importantly – comfortable, making it a good one to invest in.
Trends may come, go and come back again, but monk-straps will always remain relevant. This is probably the most classic footwear item in your closet. Pair them with a classic suit or tuxedo, or with a nice shirt and rolled-up chinos. The end result is the same – dapper!
A pair of dress boots is an essential part of the modern man’s footwear closet. Dress boots are very versatile – they can be both dressy and rugged at the same time. So whether you want to channel your inner James Bond or Kanye West, these’ll have you well on your way.
Last, but definitely not least, is a pair of black cap-toe Oxfords. These are your go-to shoes for any formal occasion, from work to a wedding. This traditional closed-lace shoe is a classic and everyone should probably own at least two – in black and brown. Navy or olive suits should be paired with brown cap-toe Oxfords, while grey and black suits work best when paired with black ones.
