The 4 Biggest Mens Dress Shoe Mistakes
Now that you've mastered the three most essentialshoes in a man's shoe closet, it's really important to avoid certain things. First of all, do not buy squaretoed shoesand by square toed shoes, I don't mean the fine chiseled toes from English shoemakers.I mean these kinds of ugly shoes with rubber soles, big, chunky toe boxes and they simplymake you look like a peasant. They're clunky, they're not elegant, they're not stylish andit doesn't matter if it's a laceup shoe or sometimes they come in loafers with like elasticsides. They look horrible and you should avoid them at all cost.
Second thing you shouldn't do is to buy thesame shoe twice or the same shoe in a different color. I hear you, you just got a pair ofshoes and you really love it. It fits well, it looks good on you, why not buy a secondpair you might think.Yu are at the beginning of building your shoe closet and maybe ifyou already have three pairs of shoes, you can buy a pair of the same shoe but if youare not there yet, what you should do is buy one style at a time because that gives youmore versatility and different looks. if you buy a quality shoe, you can wear it long enoughthat you shouldn't need a second pair which is exactly the same or just the same stylein a different color. What you can do is you
can get something on the same last but itbeing a different shoe and that's definitely something to consider because if the fit isright, you want to keep that fit but you want to change the look. Third don't is to avoid rubber soles. Dressshoes are dressy and you want to have a leather sole because when you walk it gives that reallyelegant sound and they may be a little more difficult to maintain but a good leather solewon't let water in even if it's raining and if you live in an area where it's really wetor the winters are long, you can get rubber galoshes to wear on the outside and then takethem off when you're inside.
Four, don't buy shoes that are too colorfulin the beginning or too unusual. Skip the spectators, skip dark green or blue shoeswhen you're just starting out. Even though they may be 80% off and on sale and you maylike the look, at the end of the day, you're not going to get a lot of wear out of themand they're going to stay in your shoe closet and the cost per wear goes up. Invest wisely,take a look at your shoe closet and see what you have. If you don't have the styles I recommend,I really suggest you take a look att them and I promise you, it will help you to createa long lasting versatile wardrobe that is elegant and stylish for the foreseeable future.
