The Right Shoes For The Right Man

Feb 29, 2008
While women are known for exaggerated affection, men, more often than not, are stereotyped to be "uncaring" when it comes to certain things. It could be far from the truth, some argue. There are actually men who are conscious of their appearance, and prefer that their wardrobes from head to toe perfectly match. By the same token, fashion hits or "hot items" tend to be negligible parts of life for some women.

Regardless of gender, viewpoints on life's necessities vary. This is the same thing with shoes. A pair of shoes, no matter how fashionable, is mainly for feet protection while others have a certain peculiar obsession. Most people, however, find themselves either way to a certain extent.

Studies say that in the case of most men, shoes are of a practical essence; that comfort cannot be compromised. Some men even stick to the style of footwear that they have been wearing for a long time.

More than lack of fashion sense, this can be attributed to the fact that some men may not be confident enough of what style of shoes they should wear. These guys wonder if the shoes that they find good actually look good on them. As a result, men are often left in quandary when looking for the perfect footwear necessitated by occasions throughout the year.

Some common rules actually apply for men's shoes. According to fashion experts, one needs to "pay intelligent attention" to shoe colors. A very practical tip that should always be considered is for men to pick out a pair that matches, or otherwise has a darker color than the pants being worn. Belt-wearers are advised to match their shoes with the belt's color, except if the belt is of striped neon.

The good news is that jeans match with almost any style or color of shoes. A very useful tip: try getting away from the too glossy pairs of shoes that are apparently intended for dressier attires, in general.

Because almost all footwear whether lug soles, sneakers, boots, sandals and loafers look great with jeans, the shirt may be taken as the shoe style guide.

An athletic polo shirt looks good with loafers. T-shirts and retro shoes or sneakers are a match made in heaven. Artsy and lengthy button-down shirts can be matched perfectly with moc-toe styles and sandals.

In the same manner, the shoe's style and ornamentation can be a perfect guide to achieving a perfect look. For example, heavily stitched shoes or those with woven patterns are more for the casual wear, just as buckles or tassles match the classy side.

When it comes to dress pants, settle for the type of shoe that is worn with a suit. A clue is that shiny materials and less bulky soles and heels make up the shoes that call wearers for dressy or classy occasions. Add the factor of color matching, shoes that are similarly colored or darker than pants and matching the belt, and you're ready to go.

Remember that brown pairs are best suited to tan, greens, beige, brown and other earth tones that are darker in color. Tan colored shoes match well with lighter tan, white, beige, blue and other earth tones that are lighter. Black shoes look good when matched with gray, black or navy pants. Burgundy, meanwhile, is light brown, khaki, gray or blue's perfect match.

A conscious effort to look good with one's shoes does not hurt. Being a man, after all, is not an excuse to not appear great and stunning.
