When it comes to nailing down menswear, it’s all about equipping your seasonal wardrobe with functional items.

Rotating your wardrobe according to climate changes is especially important with shoes, as this helps avoid injury of certain styles.

Here are some stylish summer footwear staples to enjoy, while soaking up the sun.

1) Tucano men’s leather brogue

5 business casual shoes for men

men's dress shoes

Business casual is one of the most common dress codes, but this vaguely defined dress style can also cause confusion.

Business casual wear is an ambiguous style. Its identity will vary based on the season and working environment, thus making it complicated for men to know exactly how to dress smart casual appropriately.

If you really want to nail this look, you need to start with your footwear – the anchor of every outfit.

Here are 5 business casual shoes for men who want to champion the style.

Suede Lace ups or boots

While leather dress shoes are smart and sophisticated, suede options have the ability to tone down the formality of an outfit. We’d suggest a suede pair in brown, which will maintain a level of dressiness that align with any business casual dress code.

Every well-dress gentleman should own at least one quality pair of brogues. Though considered a “dress shoe”, the perforations on the shoe give them a more casual look. You can dress down your brogues with jeans to create some stylish flair, but remember to keep things simple and sleek. Pair skinny or slim jeans in a dark blue or black with something polished on top, such as a shirt, t-shirt and blazer, or sweater.

The laid back loafer offers relaxed sophistication, in both style and functionality. In a business casual setting, you can dress up your loafers with a button up shirt or polo and a pair of fitted jeans.

Chelsea Boots

Of course, if you can have loafers with business casual, you can also have what we love to call the loafers of the boot world – Chelsea boots. Not only are they stylish, but incredibly comfortable. Their round toe with elastic sides achieve a cleaner aesthetic look than other boots.

Leather Trainers

Trainers have worked their way into the smart-casual category. A pair of high-end trainers can dress your formal outfits down, but just make sure they are box-fresh. Try sticking to a single-colour shoe as these work better with more formal pieces.


On that note:

Remember, when it comes to smart casual business wear, your outfit should be well-fitting but slightly less formal than a business casual or business professional style. Start from the bottom up with your shoes to build your look.
