With men, the importance of footwear with an outfit can often be ‘forgotten’, or at least a last-minute decision. Instead of it being as big of a part of a gentleman’s attire as their outfit, it seems to be more of an obligation.
What defines a modern gentleman is the ability to dress to the occasion, and we give you the tips on how to do just that! Never underestimate the statement your appearance has!
You don’t have to look like Mr Bond at every dinner party – unless you want to of course! But, dressing to the occasion can open just as many doors. So, you may as well be comfortable while you do it!
A proper suit or blazer never goes out of fashion. Neither do dress shoes. But classic styling doesn’t have to be dull. Mix things up with these lace-ups, with super-soft leather that wraps your feet in comfort, and a removable inlay sole with ECCO Comfort Fibre System™ to keep feet fresh and dry for ultimate comfort.
Black will always be the dressier option. They match all suit colours and are easily styled. If you’re suiting up for a highly formal event, always choose black.
Brown shoes work well with earthy tones, including olive greens, tans & grey suits. They are considered slightly less dressy but should never be underestimated!
Never underestimate the statement your appearance has when in a business meeting. The right combination of comfort and style will give you the confidence to help settle the deal. Or at least it will help!
Marathon tested. Business meeting approved. Rockport’s DressSports weigh less than the average running shoe – and they were put to the test in two New York City Marathons to prove the shoes’ comfort & durability. Not only does the full-grain leather look professional, it’s easy to clean for long-term wear. On the performance side, Strobel® technology on the inside and flex grooves in the outsole provide forefoot flexibility and aid the walking motion.
Rockport has redefined what a dress shoe can be: lighter than a running shoe, tailored for your daily marathon. Win!
There’s no need to dress up when travelling… but there’s also no need to dress down! With the right shoes, you can stay supported, comfortable & stylish during your travels.
Opportunity awaits the travelling man who dresses in style! You want some room in your trousers, a shirt that stays tucked or is worn un-tucked, and nothing that pinches or rubs. Merrell’s Freewheel Lace comes in a variety of different colours, that take you from economy to first class in comfort & ease.
- Slip rolled-up socks into your shoes, both to save space and to keep your shoes a little firmer so the uppers don’t get crushed inward.
- You (should) have a nice shoe horn at home, but when travelling, it can be impractical to carry. Instead, use your belt end as an impromptu shoe horn. It will save your shoes heels & space in your suitcase.
Finally, enjoy your trip!
