How to Choose the Right Dress Shoes for Men

Most men are not the most fashionable people, yet some are more fashionable than women then days. Do you struggle to find the best dress shoes for yourself? Choosing dress shoes should not be hard, all you have to do is follow a few easy steps and you will know exactly what you are looking for.

Color – What color are you looking for? Do you want a dark color, light color, or something with a mix? In my experience it is best to get an all one shade dress shoe because mixing colors makes the shoe look too casual, which is not the point of a dress shoe. Whatever you decided make sure that the color you pick will work with at least 2 outfits that you have because only using one pair of shoes for a single outfit is going to get rather expensive really quick.

Design – Something most people never think about is what they want their shoe to look like other than the color, the design. Do you want the shoe to have a checkered look to it, circles or any other design on it? Most people aren’t big fans of designs and I don’t blame them, it takes a certain person and certain outfit to full off a design on a dress shoe.

Material – Leather is the most common type of material to make men’s dress shoes out of but other than that there are many others. Alligator skin, crocodile skin, and rubber are some other very popular materials that are used to make dress shoes.

Did you know that in other countries the most common type of material isn’t leather like it is in America, but they are made from crocodile? The reason other countries do this is because crocodile last longer than leather because it is harder and more durable. Many people put crocodile on boots and belts and because of the longer lasting material the cost is also much higher than leather as well.

Picking the right men’s dress shoe can sometimes be difficult if you don’t know what you are doing, but if you can decide on the things I outlined above and then follow that up with these final questions you will do just fine.

What is the purpose of getting dress shoes? How much will I wear them? Do they need to be special in any way?

Answering these three questions will greatly help you out and once you do so picking the right shoes will be a breeze. The last thing I want to leave you with is that when looking for great shoes I always choose mens Italian shoes because they hold up much better and have a sharper style.
