What we're about

When it comes to basic footwear essentials, there are some shoe styles that every man should have in his wardrobe. In this article, we will talk about the best formal shoes that play a crucial role in elevating your look for any occasion.

From oxfords and brogues to loafers and chukkas, all these shoes have unique characteristics and interesting histories that prove their timelessness. Having them in your wardrobe will definitely help you to easily match them with your suits and stand out from the crowd. Classic oxfords, stylish penny loafers, and modish chukkas – with these three styles you’ll never find yourself wearing the same pair of shoes every day again.


This sleek, classy, and sophisticated design is known for its closed lacing design, low heel, and exposed ankle. Oxfords are considered the best shoe style for formal occasions. This silhouette is the one you must invest in because you will always need it.

There are several designs of oxfords available out there. A whole-cut design is one that is entirely crafted with pure leather material. There is no broguing details, buckles, or embellishments. It is a sleek cut design suitable for formal events.

You are also likely to see burnished oxfords, wingtips, and perforated oxfords that give them a more enhanced and preppy look. Perforated oxfords have broguing details around the toe box, making them exquisite pairs that will never go out of style.

Styling tips for wearing oxfords

If you want to attend moonlit occasions or evening soirees, a patent black leather oxford with a plain toe box would be the best choice that can be coordinated with bow-tie dressing. These shoes are straight-laced rather than crisscrossed. However, you are free to experiment with different formal outfits according to your style and needs.

For a chic summer look, consider wearing classic brown oxfords with chino pants and polos. You can also achieve a smart casual look by pairing them with dark jeans and sweatshirts.

Penny Loafer

These loafers are slip-on shoes for men accentuated with a leather strap across the vamp with a slot. These shoes have a low but prominent heel. The toe box is sleek and constructed in moccasin style.

These shoes can be worn on both casual and formal occasions depending on how you style them. Your light-colored loafers can be paired with casual outfits such as jeans and polos. Try wearing your brown loafers with a formal blazer and pants to create a dapper look.

Chukka Boots

Chukka boots are one of the stylish types of men’s dress boots. They are usually made with calfskin or suede leather. Chukka boots don’t have more than three eyelets. This comfortable design finishes at the ankle.

Camel-colored suede chukka boots can be worn with narrow jeans and leather jackets to create a smart-causal look. For a neat yet stylish formal look, pair your leather chukka boots with a formal suit and you are good to go.
