The most popular and stylish types of Men's Shoes
Oxfords (photo 1)
Oxfords are men’s quintessential shoes. Formerly referred to as balmorals by the British, these shoes have a low arch and closed lacing and often comes with a non-rubber sole. Because they’re not that flashy, they go well with either casual or formal wear. Polished, black oxfords are best for the office and for other formal functions while the cordovan, burgundy, brown and chestnut varieties are classy yet very modest choices. This type is for men who likes to maintain an air of sophistication but likes to keep everything sleek and subtle.
Loafers lack for laces or buckles but have tassles in their place. Most varieties are flats and have straps that were originally meant to hold coins, thus earning them the name “penny” loafers. Making its way to men’s fashion early in the 20th century, this type is quite similar to a moccasin and can be worn as a dressy or a classy sport shoe. Like the oxfords, loafers are not the type of shoes that will stand out in a man’s outfit. But it’s more of the laid-back and contemporary sort making it ideal for semiformal occasions.
Derbies can be considered as open-laced oxfords. They are also known as Gibsons and, since they were originally used on hunting sport, as bucks. Derbies are more casual shoes than formal and will go well with jeans and slacks.
Brogues – These shoes also originated in Ireland and Scotland and are conspicuous with their perforated patterns on the top. These are considered as ideal urban wear.
