Whoever thought fashion was only for women is grossly mistaken. In fact men’s fashion sometimes cost more than that of women. This is mainly because the raw materials used in men’s fashion are usually more expensive. The same goes for shoes. Women are known to have fifty pairs of shoes stashed away in their wardrobe, looking to by the next pair despite being nose deep in credit card debt. Therefore, men cannot be left far behind.
The Necessity of Dress Shoes
When it comes to shoes it is not possible to manage with only three pairs (the quintessential casual, formal and floaters) to all events and occasions. It also has a lot to do with co coordinating the style and color of your shoes with your clothes (or maybe it’s the other way round!)
Leather shoes never go out of fashion. Although pure leather is quite expensive, buying a pair of shoes made of these can be a treat for your feet. Having a pair of formal black leather shoes is mandatory. This goes with almost all types of office attire as long as the colors of the clothes are fine. For the occasional color that doesn’t go well with black one should always have a back brown or tan. Dark green or blue shoes are also good.
Designer shoes cost a lot of money. In fact anything designer represents selling the name of an individual. The idea is that the designer is vouching for his or her product by putting his or her name up for sale. However, designer wear also provides the highest comfort and a certain level of exclusivity as usually no particular designer item is made in pairs. Therefore, if you own a pair of designer shoes you will hardly see that many others wearing the identical copy of it.
Since the designer is selling his or her name, he or she will want to make sure that the items are manufactured under the most thorough and vigilant supervision which makes the finish of the product absolutely perfect. Therefore, if you are wondering if it is worth spending all those dollars on a pair of new designer shoes go ahead and splurge as this will last you for quite a long period of time.
Stake the Fake
Since most people have high regard for designer shoes, there are many fake ones being sold in the market. Looking at a pair of shoes you should be able to deduce if they are original or not. However, if you are making the purchase from an online shopping community then judging this can be difficult. Therefore, if you are buying your dress shoes from eBay you might want to check the customer feedback first.
Although fashionable dress shoes for men are a good idea to make yourself look impressive nothing comes above comfort. You will realize this once when you have worn your fake pair of
Armani for ten days in the office for nine hours a day and have shoe bites on your little toe.
