5 BEST Selling Dress Shoes MUST OWN Mens Footwear Photo Gallery
I’ve known him for years. And we were talking about what are the shoes that are flying off the shelf, what are the shoes he can’t keep in stock because there’s wisdom in crowds. When you know that men are, again, selectively choosing these shoes and I found that the five best sellers were very strong choices. These are shoes that I have in my wardrobe. I thought you would like this information. I’m going to talk about each of the shoes. I’m going to talk about why and how they can fit into your wardrobe. So, sit back guys I think you are going to enjoy today’s post. Shoe number one on our list and no surprise, gentlemen, is the cap toe oxford. This is going to be one of the dressiest shoes that you can have in your wardrobe, perfect with a suit with casual suits. You could possibly wear this when you dress down a bit maybe with odd trousers. I wouldn’t wear this with jeans.
The color you see here is oxblood, but you are most commonly going to see this in black sometimes a dark brown maybe even a medium brown, but darker colors for this dress shoe. Again, this is the number one seller and I think should be in every man’s wardrobe. Key features are going to be that cap toe which we see right here. Also, we are going to see the closed lacing. So, that’s where the back part of the shoe the quarter goes right underneath the vamp which is this part so the vamp goes on top and we have got this closed lacing system. Very overall a sleek design, a simple design something that’s been around a long time. It’s a classic. You cannot go wrong with adding this shoe in your wardrobe. Look for a leather sole to have the dressiest cap toe oxford that you can wear. If you want to go for something let’s say that’s going to have a rubber sole, it is still going to be a very dressy shoe, but the rubber sole do you notice? It’s a little bit clunkier it is a little bit heavier, therefore it is not going to be as dressy. But, hey, if you are living in a city you do a lot of commuting you need traction, then a rubber sole is probably something you want to look for. But, you could have some that, you know, go for a leather sole with a rubber sole.
You can go to a cobbler, they can actually put a strip of rubber right across there and that could be a great compromise. Now, gents, all the beautiful shoes you are going to see in today’s post can be found over at Paul Evans. I’m going to pull up their website right now look at these beautiful shoes. Since 2018, I have been working with Paul Evans. I have got twelve I think now maybe thirteen pairs of his shoes in my wardrobe guys. I can tell you I love this brand I love what they make and I have got a great deal for you. Use code RMRS100 for $100 off your investment in a pair of Paul Evans. So, go through there, check out all the shoes I’m about to talk about these five best sellers or maybe find something that, you know, is a bit unique that a lot of men do not pull off. Here’s a perfect example of a shoe that more men should try, a blue suede loafer. Guys, we were talking about best sellers and suede is not one of the best sellers, but I will tell you that this is a shoe this is a style that you should look to incorporate in your wardrobe. A lot of guys scared off by suede. Just simply do not wear it in that really bad weather do not go running through mud in shoes like this, instead walk into a room stand out look great with just footwear that sets you apart from the crowd.
Check this out, isn’t this a beautiful ankle boot? Look at it, you’ve got the double monk strap, you have got the cap toe, you got a little bit of the broguing right in here. I can tell you this is not a best seller, but this shoe is going to set you apart from the pack. And that’s where I love about Paul Evans, he’s got sneakers he’s got the classics. He’s bringing in a lot of different shoes, so go check him out down here in the description I’m going to link over. Use that code RMRs100. It is not going to be around forever because it is too good of a deal. It’s a good company I know the founders and they are making a great product. These are Blake- stitched coming out of Italy, highly recommend. All right, guys, let’s get back to the list. Shoe number two on our list, gentlemen, the wholecut. This is a modern classic, it is going to be more fashion-forward than that cap toe oxford we just talked about. But, get this in black get this in a dark brown, you could still wear this with a suit.
It’s going to like I said it is going to be something maybe for the younger man the man that is not as concerned and is willing to go out on a little bit of a limb. Now, you could wear this for the black for the tuxedo. I think actually that looks great. This has a very nice sleek design. And that’s the key with the wholecut is the overall simple and sleek design. I think in twenty years, this will become a classic shoe. It’s just something when I look at it it is so simple and to me simplicity is one of the key functions of menswear. Now, with the simplicity comes a price. When you are looking at a wholecut, understand the price is going to be high because they had to use a very large piece of unblemished leather in order to make this. Specifically, it is only in the back where we see actually the leather is stitched together. So, it is because they had to be very selective about the product about the material that went into building this product that the prices oftentimes going to be really high. Now, with the wholecut, you are going to want to go for a leather sole.
If you do not want to have leather soles you want more traction, then what you want to do is maybe go to a cobbler, he can put a strip of rubber going across here maybe something on the heel, but overall you are going to want something that has also a very sleek design. That’s why a Blake stitch for a wholecut to me is optimum. Shoe number three when it comes to best sellers, gentleman, the semi brogue. So, this is going to look very similar to the cap toe oxford except we are going to have broguing. Broguing is basically where they go into and they put perforations basically small holes in designs into the leather. So, we see it right over here, we are going to see it go right around the vamp and on the back heel we are going to have what appears to be another piece of leather thrown on top of that with design put right into there. So, this is going to be something you do not want to wear maybe with a business suit, but you can wear it with a casual suit, you can wear with odd trousers. If this was in black, I think in some circles, yes, you could probably pull this off with a business suit. But, this is always going to be because of the broguing, it is going to be more casual. Now, you may be asking, okay, Carl, I have heard the word full, bro. What’s difference between a semi brogue and a full bro? A full brogue also known as a wingtip is basically going to have more design in on the broguing. Instead of a cap toe, what we are going to see is this type of the toe right here and you have got what looks to be wings on here.
And right here we also see on the front toe we see a medallion design. Also, on the back of the wingtip it looks like we are going to have another layer of leather thrown on with broguing in here. At the end of the day, all this extra design all this extra broguing makes the shoe more casual. Shoe number four on our bestseller list, gentleman, is going to be the classic penny loafer. This is a casual shoe this is something that you could wear with an odd trouser odd jacket. You could wear it with jeans you could dress it up and wear this with a light-colored casual suit especially this color here, black maybe you could wear it with a gray suit or something like that. But, this is something that you do not want to wear in necessarily a business environment. Now, if you are hanging out around the office and you want something that’s comfortable, then go ahead wear this around because that’s where the origin of the loafer comes from is loafing around. Think about it. It was something that was meant to be slipped on slipped off when you were at the home. The slipper had, you know, bit of a history with this. You can also say that it had some influence from the moccasin.
I love this as a travel shoe. Now, what didn’t make this list was the double monk strap and this is another type of loafer. This to me is actually a little bit dressier. The buckle, I just love the look of this one right here. But neither of them because they lack lacing and because they lack a history and an association with dressier shoes, these in general, again, they are going to be something that you want to wear with more casual clothing. But, I think if you go especially for browns dark browns maybe even look at a suede a blue suede over here, don’t that look great? This is something that you can wear with a wide variety, you can even wear this with shorts with maybe, you know, no-show socks the right kind of shorts actually ones that do not have cargo pockets on them. At the end of the day, guys, I think this is a best seller because it fits in a lot of those areas when, yeah, you do not want to wear running shoes, you want something that is just going to look great at the same time it is going to be casual is going to be comfortable, that’s where the penny loafer falls in. Next up, gents, we have got the classic chukka boots. And the chukka boot evolved from the World War II desert booth. They say in North Africa whenever the officers up in the English military hired these cobblers to build these, they didn’t have much material to go with they went with a very simple design a blucher design which is basically when the back quarter goes over the vamp. So, we see this right here how this part is getting slapped onto this front part of the leather. That right there makes this a very casual type of shoe, but this is also a boot.
Boots are casual, but when you see them made from a very smooth high-end leather like this, it is a very I think sleek classic design. With two eyelets, that is going to be probably one of the dressier looks. Once you start to go to four eyelets, you will see that on more casual ones that oftentimes incorporate a rubber sole, so you’ll see a wide range of chukkas out there. Know that f you want to wear this with a casual suit you want to wear this with jeans to dress up the jeans, you want to go for a more elegant very streamlined look. That’s why I like the Blake stitch. You will find Goodyear welted chukkas out there you will find cemented chukkas, try to avoid those. That’s the least expensive and something you do not want. I wouldn’t wear this with a suit unless the weather is really bad, then it provides a bit of protection I think you could pull it off. When you are buying shoes, what I highly advise is you save up you buy the best that you can afford. You want something that when you shine it when you take care of this upper, overtime it is going to look better and better. All right, gents, that’s it. Let me know what you thought of this post down in the comments and go check out these boots.
Aren’t they beautiful? I just love these. I love I have to admit. You guys know I love my double monk straps, so they actually now have a boot that’s got the double monk has this nice cap toe with the little bit of broguing in there. This is something that I’m going to rock with dark-colored jeans. You can get your pair of Paul Evans by using the link down below. Use that discount code.
