Women just can’t get enough of handbags or clothes. Well for us men, it’s shoes. Whether it is athletic shoes or oxford shoes, we would love to have lots of pairs in our wardrobes.
Based on experience, us guys can go out of and shop for the best men’s shoes in town regardless of the price And why not? Shoes look super sexy on any outfit, and make us look very charming, handsome, dynamic and hot!
Before I shop for men’s shoes, I also make sure that I know the latest trends. And it is no secret color and pattern are going to dominate men’s fashion this coming season. Designers and fashion stores all confirm that. Below I have showcased the 3 main trends of men’s shoes available this year, for the modern man who isn’t afraid to get their feet stuck in and let their shoes do the talking these styles are for you.
1. Pop Color Shoes
Of the three main colored footwear trends, I believe this is the one that will have the most wide-spread appeal. Although bright, exuberant and eye-catching, pop color shoes are the easiest to integrate within an outfit, and depending on the color chosen, will complement the existing wardrobe of most modern men.
2. Two-Tone Shoes - Two-tone shoes, or the co-respondent shoe as they are occasionally known, are making a big comeback this season. Recently featured in GQ’s shoes supplement, two-tone footwear is proving hugely popular – especially in brogue silhouettes, where the leather panels are constructed in contrasting shades to create a fantastic visual impact. I think the use of two-tone coloring in brogue styles creates a sense of classicism and conjures up images of the American gangster eras of the 1920s and 30s – the spats-style shoes were very prevalent back then. One thing I will say is that if you opt for this choice of footwear; be aware of your surrounding pieces. For optimal success (and less chance of a color-clash headache), if your shoes are bold in color, keep the socks and accompanying outfit stripped back and simple – really let the statement shoes shine.
3. Patterned Shoes - Although the use of pattern in clothing has recently made a big impact on the catwalks and the high street, pattern use in footwear is also becoming more widespread.
Common prints that have been prominent so far come in the form of camouflage and animal prints. It is interesting how both of these choices have a direct link to the safari trend that is extending its influence in shoes.
Personally, I think the pop colour trend is an easier one for the everyday man to pull off and integrate into their current wardrobe, whilst I also really like the sense of stylish classicism which accompanies the two-tone, co-respondent shoe. It is undeniable that these two men’s shoes trends are big in menswear this season. Injecting a bit of pattern or color into your footwear rather than the main body of your outfit will enable more reserved men to follow the trend in a more discrete way.
