5 pairs of shoes to wear with jeans

Picking the right shoes to wear with jeans can either be a hit or a miss. There are many different colours and cuts of denim trousers out there, and there are even more styles of shoe, so finding the right combination can often be confusing.

Pairing your fancier shoes with your jeans is a great way to achieve a sophisticated look without much effort. However, this doesn’t mean you can partner any shoe with your jeans, without considering the combination first.

Anatomic & Co takes a look into 5 shoe styles that pair perfectly with your trusted denim trousers.

 

1. Cardoso Cognac Brown

Wedding shoes: groom & best man shoe styles

The wedding season is creeping up once again, and whether you’re the groom or the best man, you need to look your best. You’ll be on your feet for 8 – 10 hours, which is why it’s so important to have shoes that are both comfortable and stylish.

Anatomic & Co has put together a complete guide in what to look out for when purchasing new shoes for a wedding, as well as the best wedding shoes for men right now.

Choosing your wedding shoes

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 10.22.00 PM

What shoe shape works best?

Men’s wedding shoes should usually be narrower, with a slightly pointed toe. This helps create the illusion of long slender legs. A fine example of this is the Suzano shoe.

Try avoid wearing round-toed or boxy shoes with a formal wedding outfit. However a round-toed shoe can work nicely if you’re wearing a tuxedo, as the two items of clothing are traditionally worn together.

 

What type of leather works best?

Leather is the go-to material for wedding shoes, and it can either be matt or glossy.

The only other thing to remember is the subtle ways in which the colour of the leather affects the “vibe” of the entire outfit: black shoes portray formality and class, brown shoes provide a more relaxed and flexible look, while burgundy can add a playful feel to the outfit.

Comfort or style?

Both! Just like the bride, the groom and even the best man will be wearing their shoes for quite some time on the wedding day.

It’s often difficult to find a new pair that are comfortable straight away without being broken in, but luckily the soles of all Anatomic & Co’s shoes are made with Anatomic Gel Technology – a unique rubber mixed with a special gel, which makes the shoes incredibly flexible, bouncy and comfortable.

The gel technology will help ensure you’re comfortable enough throughout the ceremony and able to dance the night away without worrying about sore feet.

 

What colour shoes should your wear?

The colour of your wedding shoes can be in contrast to the wedding suit, but should never detract attention from the outfit. If you are wearing laced shoes, make sure that the laces are the exact colour to that of the shoe.

The standard shoe and suit pairing styles are:

Black suit – black shoes

Navy suit – black, brown or burgundy shoes

Dark grey suit – black or burgundy shoes

Light grey suit – black, light brown or burgundy shoes

Cream/ Beige suit – light brown or white shoes

Personal styling: Slip into some loafers

Loafers can be a tricky shoe to style, and often many men get it wrong. However, if styled correctly, loafers can upgrade your style and add that finishing touch to class.

The key is choosing a style that compliments the rest of your look, and making sure your trousers are cut to the right length and taper.

If you get these two things right, you can’t really go wrong. But if you’re still a little unsure, here are some top tips for wearing loafers.

 

Quality matters

Investing in quality leather loafers is essential. Cheaper loafers won’t last as long, especially if you’re wearing them without socks as the heat and sweat will get to the leather more quickly.

What’s more, higher quality leather will be more malleable to the shape of your foot, making them more comfortable.

 

Keep it simple

2

Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. Loafers are a big style statement, and sometimes a plainer pair will compliment your outfit better.

Linen or chino trousers pair well with loafers during warmer months and wool or denim is fine in the cooler months.

 

Socks or no socks?

1

The great thing about loafers is that they can be worn without socks, but make sure your trousers aren’t sagging over your shoes as this can ruin your look.

If you do want to wear your loafers with socks, match them to the colour of your trousers. Alternatively you can go for a complete contrast, if you wish.

 

The timeless loafer is a skillful blend of comfort and flair. Being laceless, they’re practical, and with plenty of options on offer – there’s something to suit every taste.

Q&A WITH SOCIAL AMBASSADOR AND MENSWEAR FASHION ADVISER DAVID EVANS

“I normally have to wear an orthotic insole in one shoe, but the softness and support from the gel soles made this unnecessary with these shoes”

We sat down with Anatomic & Co brand ambassador and menswear fashion adviser, David Evans. Here is what he had to say…

 

How did you get into what you’re doing today?

I have no background in fashion or menswear. In 2011 I had an ambition to do some writing and I decided to practice by writing a blog. After some thought I chose my search for style as a theme.

Like most older men, I’d got to an age where it’s hard to decide what to wear and where to buy clothes. The blog was meant to be a lighthearted attempt to explore these problems.

I soon realised that I’d walked unknowingly into a hole in the blogosphere, nobody else was doing quite what I was doing, and the blog took off.

 

What do you think makes you successful at what you do?

A passion for what I’m doing and a real interest in the people and businesses I come across while curating the blog.

 

How important is it to be sociable in your job?

Being a blogger wouldn’t be possible if you were not a sociable type.

 

What inspires your style?

Traditional British styles, tailoring, brogue shoes, tweed, mixed with a more relaxed Italian take on menswear.

 

What do you look for in shoes?

Comfort, style and quality – in that order.

 

What Anatomic & Co shoes are you wearing today?

Describe Anatomic & Co shoes in three words.

Comfortable and stylish

 

What does being ‘in good company’ mean to you?

Being with people who care more about others than they do about themselves.

Mr. Evans discussed Anatomic & Co shoes in his blog post, saying: “I normally have to wear an orthotic insole in one shoe, but the softness and support from the gel soles made this unnecessary with these shoes.”

He went on to say: “Nicely shaped and lightweight, the shoes are stylish as well, so they tick all the right boxes for achieving that balance between comfort and looks.”
