Traditional Dress Shoes, Contemporary Features
Men’s dress shoes this fall will be all about a traditional look matched with contemporary function and features. Look no further than Cole Haan’s new Washington Grand Laser wingtip, an oxford style shoe that has a timeless look, but pairs a footbed more like what you’d expect from a comfortable running shoe along with perforated leather that gives the breathability many men look for in footwear.
Brogues and tassel loafers are also coming back strong, and there are great models on the way from Toms and J. Crew, respectively. Toms’ brogue is available for purchase in both ash and chocolate brown colors, while J. Crew’s tassel loafers combine Italian leather and top-notch welt construction to ensure comfort and longevity.
Step Out in Style With Boots
No fall wardrobe is complete without a strong pair of boots, and Greats’ Hirsch boot is a definite contender for the best boot of this fall. The Hirsch offers a shock-absorbing midsole to go along with stylish Italian suede. Best of all, both the Dune and Cadet colors will work with everything from jeans to dressier attire.
Slide Into Some Comfort
If you don’t want to go from your comfortable summer sandals to a pair of lace-up shoes, try Van’s new suede slip-on, which is available in khaki and blue colors. And at the affordable price for these comfy beauties, you can actually afford to go with both colors!
Sneak Up On the Perfect Shoes
Very few men can go without a great pair of sneakers in their shoe lineup. As such, the New Balance Trailbuster is a terrific combination of ridiculous comfort, durability, value, and good looks. Whether you like to hike or just want comfortable walking shoes for when you’re running errands, these shoes will have you looking and feeling good.
Other shoes worth mentioning include Converse’s new Chuck Taylor All Star Tekoa high-tops. These shoes have the classic appeal of Chucks while also providing the kind of weather resistance you may need during the fall. They include tough leather and rubber on the exterior, fully insulating your feet from the elements.
