Keep it classy with men's dress shoes
A staple in every man's wardrobe, especially once he reaches a certain age, dress shoes are generally considered to be footwear suitable for casual and high-end occasions, whether it be weddings and funerals, work functions or dinner out with friends or the in-laws. If you are on the hunt for a new pair of men's dress shoes online, eBay's huge range of options might just have what you're looking for.
Choosing a dress shoe
Men's dress shoes come in a range of shapes, sizes and styles, materials and designs.
Oxfords are a style that dates back to the 1800s. They got their name from Oxford University and were popular among students. They have closed laces, giving them a formal and slim design that hugs your foot.
Derby shoes are similar to the Oxford, but the lace is open, which makes them more casual. They also originated in the 1800s in England.
If you want something that can be a bit more casual and comfortable, loafers are slip-on shoes that were originally made as a slipper for King George VI. They became a big hit for businessmen in the 1960s. Today there are a few different styles, including tassel loafers and penny loafers. You might also find people who call them boat shoes.
Both Oxfords and Derby style shoes are generally more suitable for wearing with long trousers and smart jeans, while loafers can be worn with shorts as well.
If you are matching your shoes to business clothes, look for something in dark brown, tan, black or English tan. To wear with a tux, you should consider sticking to patented black, and if you're after a more casual finish, opt for suede or nubuck.
