It’s been said that you can tell a lot about a man by the type of shoes he wears. Being that true or not, you surely do not want people smudging your reputation solely based on what’s your footwear. So, to avoid that embarrassment, we picked 10 shoe styles for men who want to be ready for every occasion.
If you know how to match your shoes and style or not, not to worry, we have got you covered. In our selection, we included some of the most stylish shoes you can buy online and matched them to the right occasion. All you have to do is to pick from the choices below to get your foot game back in shape.
The casual shoe style is one that includes any type of non-formal shoes, such as sports shoes, skateboarding shoes, running trainers, hiking boots, or any other style of shoes that would make sense to wear on a walk around the corner or a casual jog around the park.
When choosing a pair of this style, the rule of the thumb is to pick a pair that fits you well and is that comfortable to wear for long hours.
You should never wear these pairs in formal situations, which can be great too, so you don’t even need to worry too much about keeping these in a pristine condition. Actually, as long as you don’t let them get all scruffy and tattered, a little bit of wear and tear on a casual shoe only adds to its character.
