Men's Shoe Guide: What to Wear to Work This Spring

March 25, 2019

As the days get longer and temperatures start to rise, springtime signals the start of baseball season, rooftop drinking, al fresco dining, music festivals and more. But fewer things are more exciting at the commencement of the spring season than shedding your extra layers and bringing your warm weather wardrobe to the fore. Just as much as your off-duty look deserves a switch-up, your work wardrobe shouldn’t be neglected either. With plenty of new additions to Marc Nolan’s spring lineup, these three styles embody versatility, comfort and class that make them perfect for your 9-to-5, and just as good off the clock.

Dylan Navy Cap-Toe Lace-Ups

With a mixture of pebbled calfskin leather and plush wool, Dylan’s unique textures put him miles ahead of your standard derby shoes. Italian Merino wool provides cozy warmth during chilly mornings and breathable flexibility when temperatures rise making Dylan optimal for transitional weather. Thick rubber traction soles will make your commute a snap while the durable black color won’t stain after one measly spring shower. Full calfskin leather lining and latex memory foam insoles will keep you comfortable through long days and may even tempt you to bring Dylan into your afterhours rotation too. Dylan’s palette of black and navy makes this color combination easier than ever to pull off and opens up more possibilities in the rest of your wardrobe. Wear Dylan with charcoal slacks, a light blue button up, and top off your look with a trendy yet timeless plaid blazer.

Abe Cognac Penny Loafers

With an ideal combination of classic style and seemingly effortless comfort, it’s hard to beat a pair of penny loafers. A pair like Abe, with a mixture of rich cognac calfskin leather and sumptuous sheepskin suede, has the construction to last for years to come and the versatility to make a fashion statement in any professional setting. Abe is the perfect shoe not just for client meetings and budget presentations, but ideal for networking events like happy hours and rounds of golf too. Wear Abe with navy trousers and a tweed blazer in the office, then with maroon chinos and a plaid button up for those not-quite-work-not-quite-play scenarios – you’ll be stylish, cool, and comfortable no matter what.

Knox Espresso Cap-Toe Sneakers

A cap-toe oxford in rich espresso is the versatile and classic wardrobe staple perfect not just for spring, but every season. Adding a dose of modernity, comfortable soft rubber soles with chic stripes in playful hues of navy, light blue, and charcoal are sure to put a spring in your step. The unique pops of color shouldn’t intimidate you, though; these shades are versatile enough to coordinate with any number of variants within the grey, blue, and khaki color families, and beyond. With anything from a light grey windowpane suit to khaki pants and a navy blazer, Knox has cool professionalism on lock.
