There are a few essential things that we should look out for when buying shoes; the most important being the trinity – build, comfort and versatility.

You have to be very intuitive and creative when you are buying a pair of shoes. Invest in shoes that keep your feet protected from all weather conditions, that are comfortable, free of blisters and one you can rotate through at least a handful of outfits and still look super trendy at the same time.

Whether you like to stick to the classics: trainers, the slip-on, lace-ups, sneakers or just poolside flip flops we have this season’s must-haves when it comes to men’s shoes.

1. Nike Air Force 1

If you are a sneakerhead you know that year after year Nike introduces a wide variety of interesting colours and designs that are to die for.

Last year was no different, they introduced the Nike Special Field Air Force 1, an army boot-sneaker mash-up that is still at the top of the trends.

2. Adidas Yeezy Sneakers

Notorious for comfort, one thing for sure, is that Kanye West did a great job in designing these shoes, whether you are a fan of sneakers or not, you sure have entertained the thought of buying yourself a pair.

If you’re still looking to buy a pair, be on the look out for the fake ones!

3.Oxford Shoes

Before we even say anything about the Oxford shoe, we need to clarify something for the purpose of this article. An Oxford shoe is a shoe with laces, and not a slip-on, monk strap shoe or Chelsea boot. It has a closed lace system.

Every man should invest in a good pair, it’s a bit heavy on the pocket but it lasts forever and will immediately give you a classy look.

4. Loafers

Many have dubbed loafers as flamboyantly ‘dandy’ or too difficult to pull off with any real degree of success. Well fashionistas have proved just how wrong this misconception is. We have been seeing loafers everywhere; they are real fashion trendsetters. Business meetings, date nights or just casual outings, you won’t go wrong with this pair. The variety of this make, is also a plus.
