After so many posts about women’s shoes, it’s about time I helped the fellas out a bit in the shoe department. I found these awesome Fall shoes for men while helping my brother and brother-in-law shop, so I thought I’d share.
A popular trend in men’s shoes this season are the new casual versions of the classic wingtips and oxfords. I found a great pair from Aldo Shoes, the ‘Caratauc’ Wingtip Oxford. These are a great versatile option – the roughed-up leather as opposed to a shinier leather makes these shoes more appropriate for everyday use. The faded color gives them a nice, worn look. The toe isn’t too long, as is common with many oxfords, and the wingtip detailing creates a classic look.
Another choice for the casual wingtip brogue style is the Greased Blucher from Zara. These are a much more casual version (unable to be dressed up as the ones from Aldo are, but great for everyday use). They are a hybrid of a wingtip brogue and a sneaker. I can’t speak for their comfort, but they look like a practical option for regular wear. The combination of canvas and leather gives them a very distinct look, and the wingtip detailing dresses up the usual sneaker.
Lastly, and possibly my favorite of the bunch, is the Goldammer Laced Boot from Aldo. You need a bit more guts to pull these off, but they’re fantastic. The shiny distressed leather is perfect for a t-shirt and jeans or something a bit more formal. They’re sleek and classic, with a slight edge. The higher ankle-cut of the boot makes them a bit nicer to have in the Fall, and also a bit more bad ass if you ask me.
Best part: they’re all under $150.
