Are you the man who wants to look better and you are now looking for the basics to improve your wardrobe?
The pants and jackets are already covered, plus jewelry and hats but it looks like something is still missing-shoes! Just the saying goes no nice shoes, no elegance.
As years slip by, fashion in footwear is slowly embraced as being of essence to both sexes.
This has been an evolution from when shoes were just protection against thorns and stubborn stones, to the era when unique fashions have come up.
Though there are different fashions at their disposal, men still find trouble spending a fortune on shoes. They rather spend a great amount on watches and rings, not shoes.
Contrary to men, most women naturally can’t resist paying all they have for fancy shoes.
Meanwhile, gents don’t mind any pair of shoes, as long as it’s affordable and forever lasting; quality is never a problem.
With or without attention, it remains a reality that shoes make a remarkable statement when it comes to men’s wear.
The size, color and fashion of shoes in a man’s feet, tells more about their personality and sense of style. Gang-sters are identified owing to their footwear, for example ‘Timberland(s)’ define youthfulness and vigor.
Nina Ruta, a city designer, urges men to buy shoes which can easily match their lifestyle.
“Simple mistakes in footwear are hardly forgiven and forgotten,” says Ruta.
She gives an example of a bridegroom who appears in flat shoes or a judge presented to the jury with sneakers. The courtroom may not value his verdict.
African-American and Reebok’s boss, Jay-z once said,‘…..dirty shoes slide into grubby feet and only messy managers put on unpolished shoes.”
What Jay-z wanted to put across was the fact that any man was described by the shoes they wear.
Proffessionalism, composure, independence, culture, outgoing…all would be read from one’s shoes.
“This explains why I make sure that my sneakers are so white, before a stage performance,” the Rnb Rapper is quoted.
Love is another benefit shoes can earn for any man.
“I respect and would fall for a man who carefully matches his attire with the perfect shoes,” says Grace Umutoni.
Most single ladies can’t resist guys with modern footwear, the make of ‘Old skull’, ‘K-Swiss’…, explain youthfulness and up-to- date style.
Meanwhile shiny leather shoes, explain maturity and stable job status; usually famous among bankers, administrators and high class business men.
Don’t forget that, shoes also expose your financial stand among people. Think twice before pulling out those plastic shoes.
