Introducing You to Mens Dress Shoes
We found this somewhere, and we couldn’t help agreeing: “Dress shoes can make or break your outfit”. Having an amazing pair of dress shoes is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. Dress shoes are often worn at smart casual events or more formal events like parties, special occasions etc. For easier understanding, you can say it is a contrast to athletic shoes.
Dress shoes are usually made of leather, suede or rubber soles, although non-leather dress shoes are also available in the market. The most common colors in which dress shoes are usually available are - beige, black, white, blue, brown, tan, burgundy etc. From front to back, a dress shoe consists of four parts: toe, vamp, facing, and quarter. It’s the placement and construction of these four pieces that determine the individuality of a dress shoe. For better understanding of how dress shoes look like, let’s dive into the trendy types of dress shoes:
Oxford: Also known as “Balmoral”, these shoes are identified by
their “close lacing” i.e. the
bottom of an Oxford shoe's lacing section is sewn closed.
They easily go with any
outfit. It is made of box calf leather and it should not have any
Derby: Also known as “Blucher”, these shoes are similar to
Oxford except that they have “open lacing” and so a wider foot
can fit. So, it is more comfortable and thus, more casual.

style and ideal for warm-weather locations.
