The shopping malls, stores and markets are flooded with Mens shoes. When there is so much on the rack, it does create confusion at times which shoes to buy. Well, if one focuses on certain factors then there is less chance of ambiguity over which shoes work best for an individual.
First factor is why one is buying the shoes. Is it for a particular occasion or for a regular activity? If it is for a special event then what kind of event it is. Is it a wedding reception or a formal conference meeting or a special first date? Before deciding on the shoes, it is important to decide what one will be wearing on this special day. Is it going to be a suit? If it is a suit then is it a formal suit or just a dinner jacket? Now depending upon the attire one has chosen, one shall choose the shoes. For suits, dinner jackets or any other formal wear will demand formal pair of shoes. Now the color of the dress especially the trousers will govern the color of the formal shoes. Of course, black shoes for black trousers, white shoes for white trousers will work well. But one shall look for a contrast sometimes e.g. a camel color trouser might go well with a tan color shoe. Another question will be whether the shoes shall have laces or not. This is a more of an individual preference, what one feels comfortable in.
Barring exclusive events, men do buy shoes for regular activities. The regular activities could be sports, casual wear, office wear or a generic party wear. In case of sports, one shall be very cautious. There are general sports shoes in the market. But one shall buy only their sports specific shoes. There are special squash shoes, polo shoes, golf shoes, football shoes and for every other sport. These are designed keeping that particular sport in mind and keeps the feet comfortable. For office wear, men can have some standard shoes that go with most trousers. Variety of couple of black pairs and few shades of brown shoes with a combination of laces and without laces is a good idea. For casual wear the choices are enormous. Suede and canvas men’s shoes rule the charts.
