Shoes pay an important part when you put an outfit together. The right shoes can really make or break your look.
Due to their texture and look suede shoes are more casual than polished leather. Black, browns, and greys are all in. You can decide to go for a monochromatic look by matching your shoes with the rest of your outfit, or make a statement by wearing a contrasting colour.
What is Suede Made From?
Suede is made from cow hide, but the underside of the hide is used - unlike leather. This gives it a softer texture. The hide is treated to strengthen the material and get rid of hairs. It is then split to reveal the fibres inside the fabric, which gives it its unique look and texture. After this it dyed and made ready for use.
Wearing Your Suede Shoes
The suede chukkasuede chukka, or desert boot has recently seen a resurgence. Chukkas were first popular in the 1940s and have come back in recent years. Suede chukkas are a round-toe ankle height boot with a minimalistic style and just 2-3 eyelets for lacing. Combine them with a polo shirt and chinos for a cool look, or wear them with a sharp jacket at a more formal occasion. Suede loafers look great with invisible socks and chinos. For a softer take on dressy footwear, team your black or dark brown suede shoes with a suit.
