Top Men’s Summer Wedding Shoe Picks

men's wedding shoes

The summer wedding season is well underway, and if you haven’t already attended a few in succession, chances are you have at least 1 lined up this season.

If you’re a man who takes pride in the way you present yourself, your top concern will be nailing your attire for the occasion.

Summer weddings can be tricky to navigate — both in staying cool and looking fashionable. Here are 5 of our favourite men’s shoe picks so far this season:

1) Steve Touch Black

men's wedding shoes

Black suits are still the most common option for more formal weddings. If your suit is black (or mostly black), black shoes are pretty much your only option. Adding shoes of another colour to a black suit will make your look seem rather unbalanced.

A classic style that you can’t go wrong with, the Steve men’s lace-up shoe is handcrafted with elegance and simplicity. Simple, yet refined, they work best with neatly styled tailoring.

2) Tucano Vintage Navy

men's dress shoes

Brogues are a classic pairing for a tweed suit at a wedding. Depending on the tone of your outfit, you could wear brown, navy or other shades.

The Tucano men’s brogue features distinctive stitching and a contrasting England Rubber Gel sole. They are also highly comfortable thanks to a signature Anatomic Gel Technology®. Navy will give you that extra edge if you’re looking to stand out from the crowed.

3) Frutal Touch Havana

men's wedding shoes

Dress loafers or slip-on shoes are always a smart bet, they’re also your summer wedding secret weapon. The classic colours (black, brown, tan) will anchor any suit.

The Frutal men’s slip on shoe in Touch Havana features elastic inserts and padded ankle supports, providing the comfort and support you need to focus on enjoying the occasion.

4) Charles II Touch Bronze

men's wedding shoes

One of the great things about brogues is that you can easily dress them up or down. A brogue that is slim in a classic colour, such as black, brown or burgundy, will give you a downright dapper look.

The Charles men’s leather brogue is lightweight and flexible, thanks to their soft leather uppers and rubber gel soles. These men’s brogues don’t just look the part, but feel just as good too.

5) Cardoso Floater Pinhao

Mens Wedding Shoes

A great pair of boots is a dynamic choice for a more casual wedding. Men’s Chelsea boots are endlessly versatile, as they are easy to style and are timeless.

The traditional-style Anatomic & Co Cardoso Chelsea boots may look polished and ready-for-anything on the outside but, inside, they’re a homely treat.

Having fun with your shoes for the Notting Hill Carnival

Every August the streets of London come alive during the bank holiday weekend with Europe’s biggest street festival.

The Notting Hill Carnival covers the streets of west London with Caribbean colours, music and multicultural flavours.

Attendees can enjoy elaborate floats and colourful costumed performers wind their way through the streets in the carnival parade, move to the sound of steel bands and calypso music, and visit the delicious smelling food stalls along the route.

If you’ve attended the parade in previous years, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect and what to wear. But if it’s your first time, you might need a couple of tips on what shoes are best (especially if you’re on your feet all day) and how to make the most of the parade.

What shoes should you wear?

shoes to wear at the Notting Hill Carnival

Colour is a must! There aren’t many occasions where you can really have fun with different shoe colours – so embrace the opportunity!

While for most occasions pastel tones work better than bright colours (as they make you look supremely well dressed without trying too hard to impress) this is an outing where you can have fun with your shoes. Try invest in colours such as blue, green or red for the perfect carnival look.

At the same time, you don’t want to splash out for a pair of shoes that you can only wear for limited occasions. We suggest going for something like the Sao Paulo men’s lace-up in blue. Magnificently handcrafted and brushed, this shoe will make you stand out for all the right reasons.

The combination of the shoe’s anil brushed colour with the white sole is the perfect balance between classic styling and modern. You can add these with chinos and a blazer for a smart casual look or even pair them with black skinny jeans and a shirt.

As you’ll be moving around a lot and on your feet for most of the day, you’ll be after a shoe that provides you with all-day comfort. The Sao Paulo lace-up won’t disappoint here. Thanks to Anatomic Gel Technology and cushioned sheepskin lining, these shoes will keep your feet happy while you enjoy the parade.

 

When is Notting Hill Carnival?

This year the carnival takes place on 25, 26 and 27 August.

 

Where does the carnival take place?

London W10 and W11, usually around Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove, Westbourne Grove, Westbourne Park and Kensal Road.

 

How to get to Notting Hill Carnival?

London public transport is your best bet as many road closures will be taking place during the festival.

Team picks and tips

True to our ‘In good company’ strapline, we’d like to introduce you to some of our team and share their savvy Anatomic picks and why.

 

Gerry (Head of Sales) – Pilar brogue

Gerry

‘My feet feel really cosy’

I’ve worked at Anatomic & Co for under a year but have been wearing Anatomic shoes for ten years and now own 23 pairs – that’s more than my wife!

I chose these Pilar brogues as my current favourites because I can’t believe how comfortable they are. When I’m working at a trade show, I’m on my feet all day and walking three or four miles to meet with retailers. I can’t believe how comfortable they are and I didn’t even need to break them in. I wear these non-stop for ten to twelve hours a day; my feet feel really cosy!

Gerry-pilar-mens-leather-brogue

Pilar looks really good on your feet so combines the best of both worlds. I wore these last Saturday night to a smart restaurant and another diner asked where they were from. Retailers always look at the shoes I’m wearing; I recently wore these visiting the shoe department of a major store and was followed by a sales assistant on perfumes who wanted to know where they were from.

The two different leathers make the brogues feel comfortable around the foot and protective at the front. The rubber welt around the shoe also adds to the comfort.

Gerry’s tip: These look great worn with navy semi-smart trousers.

 

Dan (Marketing Executive) – Murilo Black

Dan

‘A black shoe that isn’t just a black shoe’

I first tried on Murilo in an agents’ meeting and they really were one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I’ve ever put on. I call these my office slippers!

You wouldn’t tend to think of a dress shoe as being comfortable, but the soft leather on these just moulds around your foot. Initially, I thought I’d wear Murilo with a suit or to a wedding but I can wear these with slim tailored trousers or even skinny dark jeans.

Dan-murilo-black-brogue-lace-ups

I recently wore Murilo to a friend’s celebration at their parents’ house and they made quite an impression! This is a black shoe that isn’t just a black shoe. I always think of a brogue as being a dress-down option but Murilo is really a formal alternative.

Dan’s tip: Best worn with dark blue or black denim; never light!

 

Lynda (Customer Services) – Casablanca

Lynda

‘Look after these and they’ll last a lifetime’

I’ve got my beady eye on these for my partner, Kevin. Casablanca is perfect for him to wear during the day as he does a lot of studio work and likes wearing casual shoes, but I don’t want him in scruffy trainers all the time!

We’re often out and about – there’s nothing like a walk along the Grand Union Canal to one of our favourite pubs, The Grand Junction Arms – so these would be great at the weekend. Casablanca isn’t a trainer or a boot but a good crossover. It’s also a great transitional shoe from summer to autumn.

Lynda-casablanca-walking-lace-up-boot

I get a lot of repeat requests for these in Customer Services; they’re selling like hot cakes!

Lynda’s tip: Casablanca comes in Nubuck suede but look after them and they’ll last a lifetime. You can easily revive with steam then clean gently with suede brush.

 

Travis (Warehouse Operative) – Panorama in whisky

Travis

‘The quality is just amazing’

Working in the warehouse means I get a sneak preview of all our new shoes and boots and Panorama has to be my favourite style in our new range.

I like high quality and the quality on these is just amazing. I went on a cruise to Norway with my grandfather and wore them all the time, not just to the formal dinners in the evening but also on some of the day excursions. They look great with jeans.

Travis-Panorama-Leather-lace-up-boot

For me, styling makes a good shoe. What I like about Panorama is the fact that they’re very minimalistic and look such high quality. I’m on my feet a lot during the day and these are perfect when I have to come into head office for a meeting.

Travis’ tip: The rubber touch points on these absorb shock, making the shoes even more wearable and comfortable to walk in.
