    5 Shoes Every Guy Should Own

    A perfect outfit is nothing without the right pair of shoes. What you choose to slip on your feet can make or break an entire ensemble -- no matter how well-coordinated, how well-planned or how well-structured your outfit is. To make sure that all your hard work in expertly color-coordinating the ideal get-up doesn’t go to waste, here are five -- that’s right, five -- shoes that every man should have lined up in a neat little row on the floor of his closet.

    1- The sneaker
    Casual wear is an important part of every man’s lifestyle. You can’t be in the office all the time, right? And when you’re relaxing on the weekends, chances are you opt for a great pair of jeans and a laidback shirt. When you’re in casual mode, be sure to adorn your feet accordingly by including a stylish sneaker to your shoe collection. This Roma Pigskin vintage ‘60s Puma trainer is a perfect example of how to dress down your look by styling up your gear.

    2- The casual shoe
    Since not every laidback occasion is sneaker-appropriate, you’re going to need a second type of casual shoe. This second footwear option comes in the form of a lace-up shoe with a thin leather sole. Today’s casual shoes are sleek, structured and void of any bulk -- just like Steve Madden’s Boarder shoe. This shoe will look immaculate paired with a straight-leg jean.

    The two types of dress footwear you need to add to that shoe rack…



    3- The black dress shoe
    For those high-brow formal occasions, or for a regular day at work, the black dress shoe is a classic item of footwear to own. There are no exceptions to this rule. Aldo’s Cilda loafer is just one example of the many styles of dress shoe you can own to mix and match with your slacks and suits. With its barely there sole and elongated toe box, it’s a chic shoe that’ll effectively gussy up any formal or business outfit.

    4- The brown dress shoe
    In today’s fashion world, brown is the new black. While black is still a classic color and reserved for ultra-formal occasions, brown has become an acceptable alternative for occasions that are less decorous, yet still proper -- like the boardroom, for example. The Hermesilas model of dress shoe from Aldo is the perfect pair to slip your feet into and head to work.

    5- The ankle boot
    The ankle boot is an important shoe to add to your collection -- especially for the fall. It’s a functional piece because you can wear it in varied ways. For instance, you can wear your ankle boot with a business suit or a pair of jeans and it will complement both looks successfully. These black leather, square-toe boots from Gordon Rush are a prime example of a sophisticated shoe that you can pair with almost any pair of pants.

    five shoe-ins
    If you feel a little lost when it comes to building a functional wardrobe, adding these five shoes to your clothing collection will be a very good start for you. Have these types of shoes handy in your closet and you’ll be readily prepared to complete an outfit for any occasion that should arise.
