Man About Town’s Black Friday Footwear Faves

“There are some things you can
never have enough of.  Good friends, good
health, good lovers, and of course, good shoes.”

The modern guy
dresses well and understands the importance of a good pair of shoes, they are
what handbags are to the women of this World and are always a worthy

It’s worth investing in
a couple of stand-out pairs for every occasion and in my opinion a great pair
of shoes is the finishing touch to a great outfit.  I’ve picked a few of my current favourites
and with Black Friday fast approaching, I’ll be keeping my eye on
just in case any of these pop up in the sale!

The Luxury Kick:

The luxury trainer is
becoming increasingly popular and it’s obvious as to why – there’s nothing more
comfortable on the market.  With designs
becoming smarter and sleeker by the day, the luxury kick is a great option for
the wetter days out in town or jam-packed days at work. 

I’ve selected this
navy and black sneaker from Prada that’s not only sleek in design but looks
ultra comfortable.

The Chelsea Boot:

You can’t go far
wrong with the traditional Chelsea boot and it’s a go-to of mine this time of
year.  Great with a pair of jeans or
chinos, it’s the ultimate smart/casual shoe.

I love this pair of
Waxed Suede Chelsea Boots from Common Project, a real stand out design and
perfect to complete that Autumn Winter look. 
The waxed suede is better suited to the British weather and the almond
toe detailing makes these boots really stand out and make a statement. I’m a
little in love….(!!)

The Jodhpur:

The Jodhpur is the
new kid on the block when it comes to footwear and boots.  It’s more of a stand-out design than the
classic Chelsea, less traditional but definitely more statement.  The Signature Wyatt from YSL is a beautiful
shoe.  Channelling the Parisian influences,
it’s incredibly ‘in’ at the mo and effortlessly stylish in design.

A fantastic shoe to
pair with lighter coloured chinos or jeans, ideally of the slim fitting

The Traditional Brogue:

Every self respecting
man in the 21st century will own a pair of leather brogues, they are
synonymous with the modern day ‘gent’. 
Perfect when paired with a sharp suit (tie optional) they are
traditional in every sense of the word.

No company in
footwear is more traditional than our own home-grown masters at Church’s,
who’ve been in existence since the late 1800s in Northamptonshire.  This pair of classic black brogues is the
ideal shoe for those suited and booted occasions and the quality of the
materials mean they will be in great nick for years to come.

The Monk-strap:

Another one of my all
time favourite designs, the Monk-strap is a shoe for the smarter occasion.  Great with a smart pair of chinos or
well-tailored suit, it’s more impressive than the classic leather or suede lace

This pair from the
Italian masters at Santoni is a work of art.
