See our fall footwear picks and how to pair them.
A riff off of the desert boot, the Chukka hits the smart-casual sweet spot. The neutral shades work equally well with both jeans and chinos. For something a bit more adventurous, try a dark color or bold hue. Bad boy Steve McQueen wore Chukkas regularly. Nothing wrong with following in his footsteps.
The Hiker Boot
Taking a page from the more rugged hiking boot made for tackling trails, the hiker boot boasts soft leather uppers, cushioned soles and stylish stitching. In essence, an elevated version that pairs nicely with a more casual, outdoorsy outfit (think denim vest layered over a fleece hoodie). The mountain man look, minus the mountain.
The Brogue Boot
The perfect choice for the dapper chap, the Brogue was originally made in Scotland and Ireland in the late 19th century. Since then, the style has evolved from a farmer’s functional shoe (complete with holes to drain water when sloshing through wetlands) to a modern fashion staple. We love the plush suede, hip side zips, and decorative perforations. Take these to the street, the office, happy hour. Just skip the bog.
With athleisure wear front and center on the style stage these days, it’s hard not to give the sneaker a starring role. White canvas tennis shoes look sharp and work with just about any casual outfit, including skinny jeans and joggers. Whether you’re running laps or running for coffee, sneaks are your sole mate.
The Classic Oxford
When most men think “dress shoe,” it’s the Oxford that comes to mind. With its English pedigree and sleek silhouette, the Oxford is found more often in boardrooms than barrooms. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t wear it for a less formal occasion. We suggest sporting a casual pair of pants (dark-wash jeans or chinos) and a knit sweater to balance the dressier vibe.
The Weekend Loafer
Contrary to what the name suggests, these are not the lazy man’s go-to shoe. Loafers are simple slip-on shoes, designed without laces to trip you up. Ideal for loafing around town, around the house, even around a yacht if you’re so inclined (and don’t own a pair of boat shoes). Favored for their sturdy construction, clean, classic lines and Ivy League vibe, loafers pair easily with casual shorts, jeans and chinos. Socks or not? We say not.
