What colour dress shoes should you choose
When you’re opting for dress shoes, you should consider which colour and style of suit. For black suits, including thin and thicker pin stripe, you should consider black or dark burgundy shoes. Charcoal suits are best suited with black or dark burgundy. If your suit is brown or linen, then you can choose from a variety of brown and black shoe shades. Navy suits can be versatile and be paired with brown, burgundy, or blacks. Grey suits are best paired with black, or lighter brown shades of suits.
When should you wear dress shoes?
If you need to dress up for a formal occasion such as a wedding or graduation, then you should choose closed laced oxfords or cap toes. Check out the range of dress shoes available. For black tie events, opt for black patent leather shoes for the best look. For business professional looks black, brown, or dark burgundy monk strap or wingtip shoes to match your professional wardrobe. For casual business, suede loafers or slim dress boots are acceptable in office conditions to be paired with khakis, jeans, or corduroys.
Leather or synthetic?
Leather products have the benefit of being durable, waterproof, flexible, and comfortable as it moulds to your foot as you wear it. The downsides of leather include that leather requires regular cleaning and care. The best way to take care of your leather products is to keep them clean, by removing dirt with a soft cloth. Then they should be cleaned with mild soap and a damp cloth, finally finished off with saddle soap if the leather is unfinished. Synthetic materials have the benefit of reduced price, not using animal products, and requiring less maintenance. However, synthetic materials can be stiffer and do not as supple.
