Stacy Adams "Arriba" Dress Shoes

Stacy Adams was inspired by Cuban enclaves in Miami for this look. The "arriba" look reminds many of a traditional Miami park full of dominoes players and older men with their linen suits and fedoras. This cool and classic look does not go out of style with its smooth cognac leather upper and lining. The ankle boot style provides added support while the elastic gore ankle makes it easy to slip on and off.

Shiny Loafers

Loafers are incredibly comfortable shoes. But that’s not what makes them popular. Shoe designers get five stars every time they successfully create comfortable and elegant shoes. This is the case for Mezlan Burris loafers I’ve chosen to review this week. The Spanish shoes have two buckle monk straps and a beautiful burgundy color. And they shine like a mirror. Classy choice!

Garish Italian Boots

Although it is well known that Italian shoes are stylish, now and then I make a discovery that shatters this belief. In my opinion, Italian designers for men shoes tend to create garish footwear. I’m not decided if Jo Ghost boots can be classified as ‘no-way shoes’ or extravagant; but what I know for sure is that I dislike the top shoe. What do you think?

Pearly Loafers for Weddings

I’ve talked to a friend who wants to get married this summer and he asked me what shoes I would recommend for a white smoking. I was a bit surprised to find out that he wants to wear a white smoking, but he insisted to give him an answer. Because I’m not a dress men shoes guru, I told him that I’ll make some research and I’ll e-mail my suggestion. So, you can all see what I recommend wearing on the big day: a pair of comfy Caprese loafers from Ted Baker with a pearly touch. He will look smart and be able to dance all night in these shoes.

Dress shoes from CAMPER

If you can splurge, in a situation like this, I recommend spending a few extra bucks on a good pair as opposed to buying a few different pairs for different occasions. Camper's are extremely versatile. Stylish enough to wear with a blazer and jeans, certain designs can be dressed up also.

Degradé Oxfords

I have to admit that Oxfords shoes represent a classy and timeless choice for dress men shoes. In case you’re bored of the classic black or brown oxfords, you can take a look at the Esquivel footwear collection. The American company is keen to design eye catching shoes with an out of the ordinary color combination. This is the case of these brown and kaki shoes with a gradient mix of colors in the front part of the shoe. Aren’t they something?

Dare to Wear Pink Oxfords

Usually, pink is not a color associated with men; it’s more likely associated with Paris Hilton or with Legally Blonde movie. To my surprise, Esquivel shoe manufacturer has created a pair of pink oxfords for gents. I’m a bit confused why would someone wear them to a high class event – except some artist – but I have to admit they have a flawless design. The shoes are hand-crafted in US so, in case you dare to buy them, you help some American craftsmen keep their jobs.

I always liked jazz shoes for both men and women. For an important event in your life, or for business meetings, you can choose to wear a pair of brown jazz shoes and a beige suit. Tall guys should wear the regularly because they’re flattering for thin persons. For an irreproachable look, always select jazz shoes made of leather.

No, No, No

I’ve never seen such hideous shoes in my life. Whenever I see something similar, I think on what kind of people are actually them. But without customers, companies wouldn’t ‘create’ such pieces of art. But if you’re a fan of an unconventional dress code please be more creative with the rest of the outfit and forget that such shoes were ever created.
