A couple weeks ago, I posted my observations from Memorial Day, and a good friend of mine left me a facebook message, asking me about how to pick out a dress shoe. If I may paraphrase, his message basically said “you say pointed toe shoes are out, and so are square toes, so whats left?”
The Square Toe: Went out of style back in 2001.. Too bulky and dowdy. The round toe: These are way too round… They remind me of my band shoes when I was Drum Major! Although these are by Ecco, which means they are probably SUPER comfortable, they are not stylish in any kind of way!Peter Pan: Extra long.. curled up toe… Peter Pan… need I say more? I will say this.. Even if you are in Miami for a weekend, these are not stylish at all! I can’t even express how much I don’t like these.. NO ME GUSTA!
These above have a modern-traditional look. This is as “round” a toe as you should get. Be careful when shopping for cap-toe shoes because there is a fine line. If you want these, they are $345 and made by A. Testoni. Perfect for business professional attire.If you want a more modern look, this is the silhouette you want. They are slightly pointer at the toe than the Testoni lace ups pictured first, but still have a slight rounding that make them cool to wear. The object is to stay away from any man shoe that could be mistaken as a stiletto. These are from Hugo Boss and go for $295.
I decided to show you how to pick a nice white loafer as well. You want to actually pick a white Driver as opposed to a Loafer. Also, if the sole is black, make sure that you can’t see as that much black. These are by Prada and cost $395.
