Men’s autumn/winter 2019 shoe guide
With the winter comes wet and windy weather, and there’s nothing worse than spending the day with damp feet. That’s why you need to switch up your summer footwear for something a bit more robust and protective.
In wet weather, your favourite pair of canvas shoes aren’t going to do you any favours. Instead, you’ll need something warm but waterproof. Although suede is warm and toasty, it doesn’t fare well in wet or muddy conditions, so you’re best going for a more durable material like leather. This way, your feet will be kept cosy and dry, and you can give them a quick wipe with a damp cloth to clean away any mud.
In this guide, we’ll be going through this year’s best leather shoe styles that will keep you looking great and feeling comfortable this season.
Work it out
Sometimes, finding the perfect pair of work shoes can be difficult, especially in the winter. You want to look smart for the office, but you also want to be comfortable. That’s why a classic brogue style is ideal for your work wardrobe.
We love these Oliver Sweeney brogues. Their thicker sole will keep your feet dry during your morning commute, and their decorative perforations will earn you some extra style points with your co-workers. Wear them with your best suit or a pair of smart trousers and a shirt for the perfect autumn/winter work attire.
For those smart casual outfits, it can sometimes be difficult to work out what footwear is appropriate. But we’ve got you covered.
These Shoe the Bear loafers are made from a soft leather to keep you feeling comfortable on those drier days, and their front tassel will add a touch of sophistication to your outfits. Just wear yours with a smart shirt and a pair of trousers or chinos.
But, if the weather forecast is looking a little dull and drizzly, these leather Shoe the Bear lace-up boots will keep your feet dry and looking great. Plus, they have a refined style which makes them a perfect all-rounder. Dress them up with a pair of smart trousers and a shirt or opt for jeans and a jumper for your days off.
For casual days, it can be a little bit more difficult to find the perfect shoe to keep the rain and snow out. Although your usual canvas and suede trainers should stay in the wardrobe until spring, you can get some smart leather alternatives for a modern look that will keep those soggy socks at bay. We love these Shoe the Bear and Oliver Sweeney leather trainers, which look great with when paired with a jumper or sweatshirt and a pair of jeans.
For those adventurous days that call for something a little more robust, these Belstaff boots are ideal. They’ve got an edgy biker style that goes great with a pair of jeans and one of our Belstaff jackets. Plus, all of these casual shoes have a rubber sole, which is perfect for giving you more traction on those slippery surfaces.
