We are firmly of the belief that, unless you have to wear a suit to work every day, you need to own but two pairs of legit dress shoes. The first is a plain black cap-toe for more formal events like weddings and funerals and maybe a job interview if the industry dictates as much. The second is a less formal option in brown with some sort of broguing that can be dressed up or down.
Allen Edmonds, makers of fine American-made footwear since 1922, are currently running a sale on their Heritage Classic Collection that’ll get you 20% off two pairs of shoes that perfectly fit the criteria listed above. Observe:
Park Avenue Cap-toe Oxford
Perhaps the most iconic men’s shoe ever produced. We could easily make the argument that every man should own a pair.
Strand Cap-toe Oxford
Pair these with a suit or a pair of jeans, and you’re guaranteed to notice at least one person stealing a glance every time you wear them.
And that’s it. You’re done. You now have two pairs of shoes that will never go out of style and that, if cared for properly, will last a lifetime. Well done, sir.
