If clothes make the man, then shoes are the finishing touch. You may not need a thousand pairs, but having the right selection in your wardrobe will make you look polished. If you take care of your kicks, they will last you for years and classic designs never go out of style. You can always add a trendy pair if that’s your jam, but we’ve narrowed down the basics to make it easy for you. Some of our favorite styles come from Anthony Veer.
Anthony Veer’s passion for shoes started when he was 18 years old, learning the trade of shoe-making from a family friend. He learned about hides, how the best leathers were tanned, and he began studying traditional shoe-making techniques. Anthony Veer, launched in 2016, uses the finest quality raw materials and provides well-made designer shoes at a fraction of the price. Here are our picks for the shoes that you will always need in your wardrobe:
The Chelsea Boot is perfect all-occasion footwear. This staple looks great dressed down with jeans for a more casual look or can be worn with office attire to dress up an outfit.
Casual, yet stylish, this is the shoe that you need for weekend walks and bar hops.
This shoe will be your go-to for any occasion. The midnight blue color and stitching at the back of the shoes update the classic style.
The black Double Monk Strap is perfect for the businessman or just for those aspiring to be one. They make a suit look boss.
The tassel loafer is a classic and we love how the honey brown colour and suede makes this shoe look rich. It will always be in style but these details make it look modern. These work with a suit or a with your best denim and sport jacket.
This simple lace-up is the workhorse of men’s shoes. It goes with absolutely everything, even a tuxedo if you get it in black.
This adaptable shoe is a less dressy alternative to a black lace-up oxford, but still work for business or pleasure.
