10 shoe brands every man should know



As they say, shoes are the window to the soul. Take the guy who wears boat shoes all year round, for example – you look down and bang, he’s there, wearing his personality on his feet to the party. It is a scientific fact that the choice of shoes makes or breaks any outfit. You can wear the coolest, most stylish look in the world, but if the shoes are bad, everything is ruined.

And during the cold months of repeating chinos and sweaters, shoes are also a way to have a little fun with your fit. They are a vehicle for communicating personal tastes. They have the power to elevate even the most basic outfit. Shoes are also, in many cases, a lifetime investment: well-made shoes, if treated properly, will last forever. All this to say that shoes are important. So buy good ones, stick to them and wear them well. Here are 10 of our favorite shoe brands, whether you’re looking for a high-quality basic or something you’ll buy once and wear forever.

Dr Martens

The iconic Dr. Martens still does well after all these years. The brand’s classic brogues are the perfect addition to your shoe collection: very comfortable (after putting them on) and extremely reliable. You can not be wrong.


Rugged, durable and affordable, Clarks shoes are a wardrobe staple for a reason. The iconic desert boot goes with everything and looks good to do it too.


Grenson & Esquire Trainers

The folks at Grenson have been making shoes with their own signature technique since 1866, and they’re pretty darn good at it. It’s an 8 week process with over 200 individual steps, and it shows: they form both classic and more energetic pairs that last forever. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind dress shoe, chunky oxford, or sturdy combat boot, check out Grenson’s wide selection. There is something for everyone. But if you’re looking for a cool white sneaker, Esquire’s collaboration with Grenson is on sale right now.


Loake makes affordable shoes fit for a prince. (No, really, the company supplies men’s shoes to members of the British Royal Family.) These gorgeous olive suede desert boots are versatile and durable, but also just the right amount of fun.


Cruiser Tramping Leather Boots

Tricker’s shoes are durable, luxurious and well made. The brand is bringing pops of color to its classic styling options, if you like to have a little (tasteful) fun with your shoes. If you are looking for a pair of everyday black leather boots that can be dressy or not, they will never go out of style.

George cleverley

George Cleverley’s styles are slightly more refined. You can totally go for classic silhouettes and colors, but you can also get a little creative and springy for a patent leather or honey-colored suede to mix it up a bit. These brown brogue brogues are a bit centered on the left, but still robust and classic.

from the church

Brogue Burnt waxed-suede lace-up ankle boots

Church’s makes high quality leather classics as well as retro style sneakers very well. All of their shoes are comfortable, soft and effortless. We especially love this waxed suede boot, a timeless, weather-resistant choice with details that will turn heads.


Family exhibitions of luxury Italian crafts from Santoni. If you’re still looking for a great winter boot, get these stylish yet highly functional mountain boots for this season (and many seasons to come).

John lobb

Callington Museum leather tassel loafers

John Lobb’s silhouettes are timeless and elegant, and the craftsmanship stands the test of time. These are the kind of shoes that don’t need garish colors or patterns to grab attention – their understated elegance speaks for itself. We love these tassel loafers, if you’re looking for a dressier shoe.


Richelieu Alessandro Démesure In Leather

Berluti makes beautifully burnished leather like no one else. The brand is not afraid to experiment with color, texture and pattern in its collections, and the craftsmanship stands the test of time. We love these angular and cool brogues.
