I’m sure most of you have heard the old expression—“the clothes make the man.” Well, make no mistake there is a lot of truth to this statement. And shoes are perhaps the most important part of your wardrobe/outfit.
No matter how good looking you are or how well you think you dress, if your shoes are whack, people will notice, and you are basically dooming yourself from the get-go.
It’s no secret that women don’t play around when it comes to shoes. Little known fact—the former first lady of the Philippines had thousands of shoes! Anyway, the point is this—the first thing women look after your face are your shoes. And if your shoes aren’t working for her, she won’t care if you’re the most charming, caring guy on the planet, you’re done son.
Ok, so what’s a guy to do?
Well, I’m here to give you some special tips on the 5 styles of shoes every stylish man should own. Follow these 5 rules and you’ll be sure to make the right impression in any situation:
Shoes You Need:
Style Tip No. 1—The Black Dress Shoe. This is the basic must-have for any man who may be called upon to dress stylishly and attend formal functions like weddings, funerals, bar mitzvahs etc… If you are wearing a black suit, a shiny black dress shoe is pretty much mandatory, and if you are wearing a suit in any shade of grey, then a black dress show is a nice way to round out the outfit. Go with a nice Italian shoe maker like Brunomagli—Italian style and understated.
Style Tip No. 2—The Brown Dress Shoe. Here’s the thing, most of the time when you are dressing nice, you are NOT going to be wearing a black suit. And black shoes look too formal with brown, olive, etc… pants, hence the need for brown shoes. Again, go with an Italian brand—Ferragamo perhaps or Brunomagli for a little less expense.
Style Tip No. 3—The Classic Athletic Sneaker. No matter how fit or unfit you are, we all must go to the gym now and then to keep everything tight and to keep those dreaded man-boobs at bay. A lot of guys get sloppy with their gym attire because they figure they are just gonna be getting sweaty and then going home to change later before they go out. However, wearing the right shoes to the gym is important for a couple of reasons. First, you want to wear a quality shoe that is going to give you the support you need as you go through your grueling workout. And second, their are a lot of chicks at the gym (at least at my gym) so it never hurts to look stylin’ in case you feel the need to kick some game to a hot young gym-bunny. What to wear? Go with something a little old school. If you’re feeling bold check out the Air Jordan originals. Very cool and casual.
Style Tip No. 4—A Nice Casual Walking Shoe. These can be used as a “night on the town” pair of shoes. Casual is good because it shows you’re not an uptight style whore. It also is more comfortable while you’re walking/stumbling from bar to bar to meet the girl of your wet dreams or who knows, maybe the future mother of children? Go with a casual walking shoe of European design, which are much more stylish and if you’re willing to pay a little extra, will definitely pay dividends on the dating front!
Style Tip No. 5—Desert Boots. Truth be told, there are a lot of different types of cool boots out there to choose from, but lately I’ve been a big fan of the desert boots as they are so very stylish and versatile. These go great with jeans, and there is a wide variety of colors and leathers to choose from. If you have the budget, you may even want to pick up multiple pairs just to mix things up. That’s the great thing about shoes, the more pairs you have the less often you wear each pair and the longer they all last! Boots are also a great option for shorter guys who want to add an inch or two of height.
