A man doesn’t have to be on the peak of fashion to have a passion for footwear. While most women would prefer a whole closet dedicated to their red soles, men like to keep it simple with quality over quantity. In my opinion, a man only needs a few essential options to be on the top of his footwear game. Maybe even a brown or black option for safe measure. Spending a few extra bucks on a trendy + quality pair of boots sounds more than reasonable to me!
For those of you still clinging on to your summer loafers: move on, bro. Autumn is in full swing and there is no better time to graduate your shoe style from the boys to the men. A good boot to handle the briskness of the fall and harsh conditions of winter is vital for cold weather survival. But the key is to find a balance between function and fashion. We want to keep our toes warm and ensembles dapper, men.
For a little guidance in the shopping department, I put together a list of the three boots I feel are crucial to any man’s wardrobe.
The Dress Boot
A decent wingtip boot can class up anyone’s act. Pair them with a suit or a pair of your favorite rolled up denim for a classic men’s look.
The Work Boot
The work boot is a must-have. This style has been around for ages almost completely untouched – and for good reason. With such a classic look, these boots are great for keeping you stylish AND warm during below freezing temperatures.
Perfect for city living, Chukkas are an essential casual boot that every guy should own. You could explore the city all day in these bad boys. Comfortable and flexible, chucks keep your feet from blistering.
