The Shoe Edit: Men's Footwear

If you're reading this article, it means you're interested in improving your style. A man's shoes are inarguably one of the most important fashion accessories he wears. Just as the eyes are a window to the soul, so are shoes a window to his personality. As a man, the kind of shoe you choose to put on your feet provides an opportunity for people to decipher the kind of person you are.

Gents, true or false people notice your shoes? That's correct, it's true and purchasing new shoes can be a challenge for most men, which is why I have selected my favourite styles and trend to match anyones style and preference as well as occasion.

By choosing the right shoes you can elevate your outfit to the next level. Most people can look stylish however, if wearing a pair of shoes that doesn't match the outfit this can take a potential style opportunity and turn it into a style liability.

Most people shoe taste differs due to age, personal preference and style. So here are my latest shoe guide collection and kicking it off are the latest Spring/Summer 16 must have picks:

'Slits' Trainer, Handmade in England £195.00

A true fusion of old and new, the trainer is handmade by craftsmen, it's lines are distinctly minimal and contemporary. The upper is a 'whole cut' piece of raw edged leather (whole cut means the upper is cut from a single piece of leather, stitched at the heel). The tongue has a uniquely split and rolled upper edge - which we call 'reverse kilting'. This is a feature (literally turning tradition upside down) provides cushioning on the tongue (a common feature of trainers) without the use of internal padding.
