Designer Shoes for Men: Our Top Picks

Women seem to have all the fun when it comes to designer shoes, but that does not mean men can’t have fully stocked shoe closets.  Stores abound with designer shoes for men, but it can be difficult to wade through the trends to find pairs that are truly worth the investment.  We are sharing our top current picks for designer men’s shoes to guide you in your choice.

Oxfords

Every man’s wardrobe should include at least one pair of good looking Oxfords.  This versatile shoe can be worn with a tailored suit or with a pair of jeans and a button down.  We recommend investing in one of these two beautiful shoes.

These classic brown Austin-cap oxfords by Tom Ford are the perfect shoe for any stylish gentleman.  The calfskin shoe features brogue detailing for a traditional oxford look.  If Cary Grant wore a shoe on this list, it would be this one.  These shoes sell for $1,990.

We also love these beige suede Balmorals from Gianvito Rossi.  The sleek lines and stacked heel have a modern sensibility that won’t detract from your designer suit.  However the unusual color makes these shoes anything but boring.  Expect to pay $895 to own these shoes.

 

Made in Italy, Gianvito Rossi’s five-eye balmorals are constructed of beige suede. Known for using artisanal techniques, the Milan-based label creates subtle, understated shoes with durable soles.

 

Sneakers

We love these sleek Calvin Klein Tex boots as well.  The side zip closure provides a stylish detail to the boots, as well as saving you a few seconds of time getting ready in the morning.  The Italian leather upper is complimented by a sturdy rubber sole.  Pre-order this pair for $1,195.

 

Smooth, glazed leather and a smartly pointed toe elevate an Italian-crafted boot grounded by durable Goodyear welt construction.

Loafers

Two of the three versions of this Gucci loafer feature a strip of the iconic Gucci grosgrain, but we prefer the understated all-black version.  The unmistakable Gucci insignia still clearly identifies these leather slip-ons as designer shoes.  These gorgeous shoes cost $695.
