On Shoes

Allen Edmonds dress shoes.From time to time I get questions from my friends about shoes of all things. So instead of repeating it every time I decided to make a short post on the topic. There comes a time in every man’s life when one evolves (or should) from a teenager to an adult and clothing is a part of that. Now I’m not an expert on any kind on any of this stuff, so take my opinion for whatever it’s worth.

Ready to be cleaned.I think the three pieces of clothing (or accessories) that stand out the most are shoes, a belt and a watch and I guess out of those three shoes stand out the most. I stopped wearing square-nosed or long dress shoes some time ago and prefer to wear something more classy and bold, if I may say so.

Taking care of your shoes. Cleaning steps.It also makes sense to invest into a couple of pairs of good shoes that can last you for many many years if you take care of them and don’t wear the same pair every day. I really like American made Allen Edmonds shoes. They are high quality shoes that can be had for not an obscene amount of money. They are made of high quality leather and they are sewn to their leather soles, not glued, as proper shoes should be. After a couple of days of wearing the leather molds to your foot and they become very comfortable.

Applying polish.They come in many different styles and colors. Three of my favorites choices at the moment are McAllister Wingtip in walnut — works as cusual as well as a dress shoe, Fifth Avenue Cap-toe in black — goes with pretty my anything and for anything and McTavish Wingtip in gray — simple casual shoe. Allen Edmonds typically has pretty good sales later in the year and that’s when I plan to add Strand Cap-toe in brown — a pair of very class dress shoes.

Cap-Toe Oxfords

 Air Madison Cap Oxford by Cole Haan.We’ve been on the topic of shoes a couple of months ago on here and at about that time we took some more shots of dress shoes as well, but I never got around to posting anything about that. There really isn’t much to say except for the fact that I’ve developed an appreciation for stylish good looking fashionable shoes.

Self.I never used to wear sneakers to begin with and much preferred to wear dress shoes for a long time already. However they never were anything special. This new pair is moderately priced, but was on the edge of my comfort zone. Now after owning it for a while they are not as edge as I thought they were when we bought them and my comfort zone has expanded.

 Air Madison Cap Oxford by Cole Haan.These are called cap-toe because of the broguing separating the toe of the shoe. These are made by Cole Haan, but I seem to be in between the sizes for the shoes that these guys make, so they are not as comfortable as they could be. But I like the way they look. They go with a lot of things — something casual and something formal as well.
