It’s true what they say, if the shoe fits, wear it. The perfect shoe for any occasion is very important and the fit is too. Shoes are almost the most important part of a man’s outfit. If it fits perfectly you will be comfortable, no matter where you are. If you haven’t got the perfect shoe it’s time to upgrade and step back into comfort. We would all like to be comfortable with casual shoes such as our favourite pair of sneakers or flip flops, but sometimes we have to wear formal shoes. Whether you are going to an important meeting, a corporate function or a wedding, your shoes need to be formal, comfortable and elegant. There are many types of shoes to choose from. Some people prefer the style and forget about being comfortable. Choose a formal shoe that is both comfortable and matches your suit. Formal shoe styles vary much and include options such as lace up, slip-on, formal, semi-formal, and classy. A fashionable shoe comes in different colours also. Some colours available include white, black, brown, burgundy and walnut. Before choosing a shoe make sure that you are going to wear it again and that it matches a number of suits in your wardrobe. Formal shoes are made of genuine leather, faux leather, or suede. Plus there are variety of brands to choose from, namely Mazerata, Urban Art, Franco Jameli, Dakotas, John Drake, and Watson. Casual shoe brands such as Dakotas include the colours black or brown. They are available with tassels or without and can be worn with jeans or formal pants. Other shoe brands such as Watson or John Drake have a formal style and goes well with a formal men’s suit. These shoes are normally worn with wedding suits or corporate suits. The ankle dress boot for men is also a very fashionable item and can also be worn with a jeans or formal pants. These boots are also available in different colours. There are also cleaning solutions available for formal shoes. Polish gives your formal shoes a clean and glossy appearance. Shampoo is also available to wash the dirt off. These cleaning solutions are available in colours similar to your shoe’s colour. When wearing your shoes make sure that you wear socks. The socks will absorb the bulk of the sweat which will minimise the dreaded foot odour that usually remains in the shoe. So, shop for comfort and dress to impress.
