    What do you call the shoes for men? 

    Men's shoes are also referred to as "dress shoes" or "formal shoes". They are designed for formal occasions such as weddings, business meetings or other events where a sophisticated look is required. Some common styles of men's dress shoes include Oxfords, Derbys, brogues, loafers, and monk straps. The men's shoes that we sell fit well with our men's suits, wedding suits , and  gala suits. All the items we sell at The Garrison can be carefully matched. 

    How should dress shoes fit? 

    Dress shoes for men should be comfortable and well-fitting, without being too tight or too loose. Here are some tips to make sure your dress shoes fit well:

    Right size: Make sure you have the correct shoe size. If you are not sure about your size, have your feet measured at a professional shoe store. Please note that shoe sizes may vary by brand or style.

    Fit: Smart shoes should fit well on your foot, without pinching or leaving too much room. Your toes should be able to move freely and not press against the front of the shoe. When trying on the shoes, you should have about an inch of space with your longest toe from the front of the shoe.

    Adherence: The heel of the shoe should be firm and snug against your foot. Your heel shouldn't slip out of the shoe when you walk, but you also shouldn't experience pressure or friction that can lead to blisters.

    Width: Pay attention to the width of the shoe. Dress shoes are often available in different widths. People with wider feet may want to consider buying shoes with a wider fit, while people with narrow feet may find better-fitting shoes in narrower sizes.

    Practice: New shoes can feel a bit stiff at first. It is normal that you need some time to break them in. Wear them indoors for a few hours before wearing them outdoors for an extended period of time to get them used to your feet and spot any sticking points.

    It is important to invest in well-fitting, comfortable dress shoes, as you often wear them for long periods of time on formal occasions.

    What dress shoes for men are in fashion? 

    Also this year there are several trends in the field of smart men's shoes that stand out. Here are a few styles that are trending right now:

    Oxfords: This classic shoe is always in fashion. The minimalist and clean lines make them suitable for both formal and business occasions. Brown and black are always safe choices, but dark blue and burgundy are also trendy colors.

    Derbies: Slightly more casual than Oxfords, but still very stylish, Derbies are also a popular choice. They have an open lacing system, which makes them a little less formal. They are perfect for smart casual events.

    Brogues: This type of shoe, recognizable by its decorative perforations, is currently very popular. They add a little flair to any outfit and come in both Oxford and Derby styles.

    Monk Straps: Monk strap shoes are a trendy alternative to traditional lace-up styles. They have a buckle and strap instead of laces, which makes for a clean and modern silhouette.

    Suede shoes: Suede gives a luxurious and stylish look to shoes. This material is increasingly seen in all kinds of shoe styles, from Oxfords to loafers.

    Two-tone shoes: Shoes that combine two different colors or materials are a bold trend. They add a unique element to your look and are sure to be a conversation starter.

    Regardless of the trend, the most important thing when choosing smart men's shoes is that they are comfortable and match your personal style.

    What does the type of shoe say about a man? 

    The type of shoe a man wears can reveal a lot about his personality, status, and even his mood. According to a study conducted at the University of Kansas, people can make accurate predictions about an individual's personality based on their choice of shoes with an accuracy of up to 90 percent. These findings suggest that our shoes can be a powerful tool for self-expression.

    Shoes determine the worth of the gentleman (according to the ancient wisdom)

    According to ancient wisdom, the worth of a gentleman is determined by his shoes. For example, in the sixteenth century, if a man was seen wearing ornate shoes, especially buckles, it was believed that he was of noble birth. Today, shiny shoes still give an impression of intelligence and self-confidence. The maintenance and care of shoes, especially leather shoes, is crucial to extending their life and maintaining their appeal.

    Choice of shoes: status, culture and ethnic roots 

    The choice of shoes can also reveal social and political status, ethnicity and cultural roots. For example, choosing simple, practical shoes may indicate a pleasant personality, while expensive, branded shoes may suggest that the wearer is less accessible. So always think about which type of shoe you wear for an occasion. Want to know more about which type of shoe is suitable and when? Then take a moment contact us.
