The Best Men’s Shoe Styles You need in Your Closet

As a man, you need more than one or two pairs of shoes–even if you don’t think so. Here are the best men’s shoe styles you need in your closet.

There’s an old saying that goes, “Good shoes take you good places”.

And, we certainly believe this to be true. While shoes certainly have a functional purpose, the right pair of shoes can make you feel good about yourself and boost your confidence.

And, although a love of shoes is usually associated with women, men need shoes just as much as women do.

However, many men are at a loss when it comes to picking out the right pair of shoes.

If you’re a man, there are certain men’s’ shoe styles that you should always have in your closet.

What are they?

Check out this guide to learn about the top men’s shoe styles you need in your closet.

Low Top or High Top Sneakers 

Whether it’s a pair of Air Jordan high tops or Adidas low tops, every man needs a pair of sneakers to wear in his everyday life.

Sneakers are the type of shoe you’ll turn to when you’re running errands, having a casual hang out with friends, going on a date in a park, or when you’re grabbing a bite to eat.

While there are all kinds of sneakers you can get, we suggest having at least one pair of white sneakers on hand. The great thing about white sneakers is that they go with any outfit, so you never have to worry about coordinating.

In addition to a pair of white sneakers, we also suggest choosing a pair in a darker color or in a bright color to mix things up.

Athletic Shoes 

If you work out, then you obviously need a good pair of athletic/running shoes. If you don’t work out, then maybe buying the right shoes will give you the motivation to start!

For your workout shoes, we suggest basing them off of the activity you do most. For example, if you’re big into running, then you should invest in a good pair of running shoes.

If you’re into circuit workouts, then we suggest investing in a pair of cross-trainers.

Also, if hiking is a part of your workout routine, then we suggest buying a pair of hiking boots in addition to your normal athletic shoes.

Derby or Oxford Dress Shoes  

Every man needs a pair of Derby or Oxford dress shoes to class up his look once in a while.

We suggest buying these shoes in black so that they can go with many different outfits. This will be your go-to pair of shoes for weddings, formal dates, and other formal events.

Once you’ve purchased your first pair of black Oxfords, we suggest making dark brown your second purchase.

Brown Leather Boots 

Brown leather boots can be worn for all sorts of occasions, which is why we strongly urge you to have at least one pair in your closet.

You can wear brown leather boots when in inclement weather situations, or you can wear them to dress up any casual outfit.

While there are a lot of brown leather boot styles, we suggest either a Chelsea boot or a Brogue boot.
