You’re looking to invest in a pair of leather shoes, or two. Where do you start? There are a wide range of dress shoes out in the market and finding the right one for you might not be easy. The more the options, the harder to choose. Here, we’ll try to narrow down your options depending on your needs.
- Black Oxfords
If you were to only own one pair of dress shoes, a pair of black oxfords would definitely be the most suitable. Able to pair formally with a suit, or dressed down with chinos and a shirt, it will be the most versatile shoe in your closet. This pair of oxfords will be ready for your every event where you’ll have to dress up or down. There are many other options for black leather shoes, but the oxfords are the “safest". Try going for a pair with less/no brogueing to keep it as sleek and versatile as possible. Depending on the width of your feet, we’d recommend the non-chiseled versions for one with wider feet and the chiseled for one with slimmer feet.
2. Brown Brogues

A pair of brown bogues can go with pretty much everything, and it’ll certainly help you not get bored of wearing your pair of black shoes everyday.
