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.

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.

Brogues

mens spring 2019 shoes

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.

Loafers

mens dress shoes

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

men's spring summer shoe collection 6 - men's dress shoes

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.

In this article, Anatomic & Co takes a look at 5 shoe styles every professional gentleman should own. Your shoes are usually the first part of an outfit to draw attention to the eye, and also provide a good base to direct the rest of your outfit – so getting it right is a must!

With a great pair of shoes alone, you can elevate your professional look immensely.

1) The brogue

men's shoes for the workplace

The classically cool brogue is now seen as an acceptable business shoe, as well as a smart, yet relaxed option. Not only are they smart and stylish, but they can also add interest to any outfit thanks to their unique perforations

Tip: The best brogues are the ones that can be worn with both smart and casual outfits to create a sophisticated finish.

2) The oxford

men's shoes for the workplace

The Oxford’s clean design makes it the epitome of elegant formal shoes. This shoe style is ideal for more formal workplaces.

Tip: Black Oxford’s are a good go-to option when dressing professionally.

3) The loafer

men's shoes for the workplace

The highly versatile loafer can be dressed up with tailored trousers for more formal workplaces or dressed down with jeans for a more casual office setting. Loafer’s are a great everyday work shoe, as they tend to be both durable and comfortable.

Tip: In warmer months, you can wear your loafers with no socks, and in colder months, with socks.

4) The Chelsea boot

Another shoe that can be dressed up or down is the stylish Chelsea boot. The Chelsea boot will give you the ideal balance of being more dressed up than a trainer, but not quite as formal as a pair of Oxford’s.

Tip: Depending on your style preference, you’ll find great options in leather and suede.

5) The Desert boot

men's shoes for the workplace

A casual classic for the more laidback workplace, the desert boot combines simplicity and taste in equal measure. Although this style is generally considered a casual shoe, they can be styled-up with more formal attire.

Tip: The flattering shape of the desert boot means that they can work for everyone, regardless of their personal style.

It’s often said that you can judge a man’s character by his shoes, and that’s never truer than in the workplace.

Anatomic & Co shoes are made with Anatomic Gel Technology. This makes the soles incredibly flexible, bouncy and comfortable. The insoles also have a memory, so once you take your shoes off and leave them to rest, they go back to their original shape ready to look after your feet the next day.

Men’s style guide: Reinventing your personal style

mens style: changing your style

If you feel like your wardrobe lacks personality, and your sense of style is looking a little flat, don’t you worry, because reinventing your look is easier than you think.

Stagnation is a familiar enemy for many men out there. Wearing the same thing day in and day out can make your look feel tired – it’s strange how what we wear affects how we feel about ourselves.

The year is still fresh, so now’s as good a time as any to do a little reinventing. Here’s a quick and easy guide to do just that.

Out with the old

mens style: changing your style

Before you begin recreating your style, you need to get rid of all the stuff that’s not helping with your current look. Too many of us are guilty of hoarding items in our wardrobes that we’ll never wear again — like old T-shirts that have lost their life. Let them go!

By saying this, however, you can hold onto essential items, like basics that can be incorporated into your new look.

Find your style inspiration

mens style: changing your style

So you know that you want to reinvent your style, but you don’t exactly know what you want it to look like. The best way to find out is by looking for inspiration from style icons, social fashion pages and great blogs (like ours).

Remember to consider your lifestyle and working environment, and make sure that your new look complements these.

Start small

mens style: changing your style

While you’re becoming an expert in your new look, start with the basic pieces of that style. Try working with items that you already have and experiment with subtle changes. A new pair of shoes or adding some men’s accessories to your outfit can make a big difference in helping you achieve a certain look.

Small additions such as this will provide you with a good base to expand on.

Choose carefully

mens style: changing your style

Upgrading your look can be a costly affair — budget yourself. Rather than splashing on anything that fits your new style, be selective and choose pieces that work well together. Cohesion in your wardrobe will maximise the versatility of every item.

If the look that you are going for is more expensive, try saving on basics (like plain T-shirts) and invest in statement items like jackets or shoes. Your new style will likely depend more on these items.

What else can you do to reinvent your style?

mens style: changing your style

Reinventing your style does not only involve what you wear. A new hairstyle or improving your physique also plays a key role in creating your new image.

Many gentlemen out there pick a hairstyle and stick to that their whole lives – change it up, because your hairstyle will correlate with the rest of your reinvented style.

Likewise, changing your physique will also change your look and how your clothes fit.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: 5 Shoe Styles For Every Man

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas: Men's shoes

At Anatomic & Co, we like to think that Valentine’s Day is just a great excuse to eat chocolate, have a glass (or a few bottles) of wine and do something you enjoy, with that special someone in your life.

It’s also an excuse to get some nice new stuff! We’re not saying men don’t like roses and chocolates, too, but a new pair of shoes is that much better…

So if you want a way to his heart this Valentine’s, a new pair of shoes should do the trick – and if you don’t know his size, just turn over a pair of his shoes when he’s not looking!

The detail-oriented man

men's brogues - dress shoes

If your man appreciates the art of dressing well and the craftsmanship of his shoes, he’ll be delighted with a new pair of brogues. This classic shoe style has a timeless appeal and can be worn with many outfits, including everything from tailored jeans and a v-neck shirt, to a two-piece suit.

The rugged man

men's boots - dress shoes

Men who like their boots are likely to be both trendy and masculine. A good pair of desert boots or lace-up boots will see the receiver through the colder seasons ahead with pure, unadulterated flair. If cared for correctly, they will last as long as you hope your relationship will…

The casual but cool man

men's trainers - dress shoes

For the easygoing gentleman out there, trainers will be at the top of their wish list. A solid pair of trainers will provide both style and comfort unlike any other piece of footwear. Trainers are now widely acceptable for most occasions – a night out in town, smart-casual events and even most work places.

The sophisticated man

men's chelsea boots - dress shoes

A pulled-together gentleman will appreciate a quality pair of Chelsea boots. Regardless of age, size, or personal style, the timeless Chelsea boot deserves a spot on every shoe rack. Available in both leather and suede, they also come in a variety of colours.

The laid-back man

men's chelsea loafer - dress shoes

Winter essentials: shoes and jeans matching guide

mens winter boots

Denim jeans are a definite wardrobe staple – they can be dressed up or dressed down, and get you through many outings.

But what shoes should you be matching with your jeans to support a stylish and sophisticated look?

Anatomic & Co has put together a complete guide on what shoes to wear with your jeans, so that you can step out in style this winter.

Skinny Jeans

mens shoes and jeans combo

Both skinny and super skinny jeans can be hard to pull off if they do not correspond with the rest of your outfit. Remember, that your legs will look thinner in skinny jeans, therefore making your feet look bigger.

So when choosing shoes to wear with your skinny jeans, you want to avoid looking bottom-heavy. Slip-on’s and loafers work great with skinny jeans, while chunky high-top trainers not so much.

Chelsea boots provide a smart combo with skinny jeans – they are a match made heaven.

Baggy Jeans

mens shoes and jeans combo 2

As baggy jeans are ultimately a more casual item of clothing, they pair best with a pair of trainers and a T-shirt. Chunkier trainers will balance out your outfit, while smaller trainers can make your outfit look unbalanced.

This jean style is for casual wear only, so you don’t want to wear them with your smart dress shoes. Also, remember that dragging jeans are a bad look – you want baggy, not oversized. You can roll up your baggy jeans, to suit your style.

Slim Fit / Straight Leg Jeans

mens shoes and jeans combo 3

Slim fit or straight leg jeans are probably the most versatile option, as they can be worn with most shoe styles and work for many occasions.

When it comes to partnering these jeans with shoes, they can be worn with trainers, dress shoes or even boots. Whatever you choose to wear with them, length is important – jeans should sit on or just above your shoe.

For smarter occasions, stick to brogues, loafers or a Chukka boot.

 

As you can see from our handy little guide, certain shoe styles work better with certain jeans. This being said, style is a personal expression, but don’t cross into the realm of poor dress wear just to make a statement. It’s important to remember that your shoes should always complement your jeans
