The right pair of shoes for the right outfit can take your look to another level. That's why Jesu Segun London has come up with 5 men's dress shoes every guy should own.
1. Alafia Brown
The wholecut Alafia Brown dress shoe is made from a special select piece of leather.
This beautiful shoe goes great with nearly all outfits and is ideal in nearly all settings.
It will make an ideal addition for a black-tie attire or for most business and formal occasions.
You can also dress them down by purchasing them in brown or burgundy.
The brown wholecuts look beautiful with a charcoal or navy suit. If you want to add a bit of bold panache, Alafa Brown is a great choice: it goes especially well with an otherwise all-black ensemble.
In the right color they'll make you stand out in any boardroom or ballroom.
There's a reason why Alafa Brown wholecuts are the first on the list. You can't beat them when it comes to sheer elegance.
Until about 50 years ago, loafers were dismissed as inappropriate in almost all formal business settings. Nowadays men's style is increasingly influenced by convenience and trends lean towards a more casual approach even in business settings. Loafers like the monk strap have made a comeback.
The history of the monk strap goes back over a thousand years.
Life wasn't easy for holy men in the 15th century. Quite often monks would plow fields and tend crops as part of their daily routines. At first, they wore single-buckled sandals to do a lot of this labor but eventually, there came a need for a more protective footwear.
The sandal slowly evolved to cover the entirety of the foot. Fast-forward a few centuries and we now have a shoe that men love for reasons far beyond its inception as a foot guard for friars.
Though the single-strap design is more true to its origin, I prefer the double-strap because the buckles are less clunky. Some would argue that the double-monk can be dressed up, but with it being a loafer – I have to disagree.
Gents, we've talked a little bit today about some additions you can make this year as far as footwear.
There are many more excellent options out there, but these are a great way to consolidate the essentials.
With this list, you've got shoes that best encompass style and versatility – truly the two best men's dress shoes on the market.
