Another year comes and goes and all you have to show for it is a quickly-scrawled coupon for an hour of housework or a free hug. Why not get the men in your life something they’ll actually like this Father’s Day – something like, say, a really cool new pair of shoes? You know you want an excuse to alter their wardrobe…
We rounded up a few styles that will appeal to all the men in your life. They’ll love wearing them and you’ll love the feeling of satisfaction (and maybe a little smugness) whenever you see them wearing them.
A classic horse-bit loafer is becoming more and more a wardrobe staple, though it can be difficult to find a pair that’s durable, wearable in both casual and formal settings, and comfortable. That’s where Peyton comes in. With a stacked heel, impeccable stitching and a prominent horse-bit, there’s nothing about these shoes that’s delicate. But the sumptuous sheepskin suede and versatile black hue add subtlety and, most importantly, versatility, while the full leather lining and padded insole ensure all-day comfort.
Peyton pairs well with anything from dress pants to denim of all washes to colorful summer shorts. And if Peyton in black is close but no cigar, he also comes in a chic espresso brown shade – a shoe with the same onyx horse-bit and black soles to make that variation just as variable.
With business up top and a party on the sole, the Jasper Wing Tip Sneakers are the ideal shoe to dress up, down and everything in between. Our bestseller is now available in a more fun but no less versatile shade of navy, and sheepskin suede instead of full-grain leather – perfect for summertime.
With a full brogue wing tip upper and a shock-absorbing EVA rubber sole, this dress shoe-sneaker hybrid is the perfect shoe to take you from the office straight to after-work drinks and keep you comfortable all day long. And you’re sure to find the right pair to fit into your closet since Jasper is also available in cognac, black and honey.
Whether heading into the office or breaking it down on the dance floor at your next summer wedding, the Sawyer Walnut Wing Tip Oxfords are the wardrobe update you’ve been looking for. Sawyer features soft leather that will withstand creases and a classic full brogue medallion wing tip design that will stay in fashion forever. Not to mention the sturdy construction, padded insole and grosgrain trim detailing, all of which add resilience and comfort to this dress shoe.
This walnut shade with coordinating soles and laces will complement any shade of blue, and the slightly squared toe adds modernity to a classic Oxford style. And for the man who prefers shades of grey, Sawyer is also available in black.
