Trendy designer shoes for men for fall 2015

Buying a fresh pair of shoes for the fall season is always a good idea. Designers are showing a range of options that are perfect for your 9-5, yet function well for an after work happy hour and meet up with friends. For fall 2015, look for styles that are classic or modern and sporty while still retaining a hint of luxe which adds to the versatility. Have a closet that is filled with brown and black basics already? Do not be afraid to mix in a new style to your wardrobe- perhaps a high top sneaker or modern brogue will fit the bill. Fall is all about luxurious leathers, suedes, and darker tones.

Chelsea Boots

We have been seeing the Chelsea boot appear on runways of the likes of Saint Laurent for a few seasons, and this fall, it is a great buy. Swap out your dull black dress shoes and pair a leather Chelsea boot with a tailored suit for modern look. If a suit and tie is not your thing, try the Chelsea boot with slim jeans, a v-neck, and cardigan for an easy, edgy look whether its a weeknight dinner or weekend errands.

High Top Sneakers

Those vintage high tops you found sitting in the back of your closet from high school are back in a big way. High tops have become a staple in every designer’s collection, and this pair from Balenciaga has become one if the “it” styles. The high top is a great way to venture into a style you might not normally wear as it is easy and relaxed, pairing well with all denim or chinos. Keep things neutral for a great fall color palette and easy pairing options.

Classic Penny Loafer

If you do not have a pair of penny loafers in your closet, stop everything and add a pair to your cart! If you already have a pair, why not have another? If there is one style of shoe in my wardrobe that I wear time and time again for a myriad of different occasions, office to dinner, it is the penny loafer. It is simply a classic and pairs with everything.

Suede

Suede is the perfect compliment to the fall season as we store away our canvas styles. While it may be more difficult to care for than leather, it truly is beautiful. A suede sneaker is an easy option to incorporate into your wardrobe as it will become a go-to for weekend brunches and errands. Select a neutral color, such as dark tan/beige, and you will be able to match it to anything in your existing wardrobe.

Modern Brogue

The Brogue, perhaps one could say it is a tried and true menswear classic. You might have a traditional black or brown leather pair sitting in your closet currently that matches your business suits well. This season, try a modern brogue. The modern brogue, perhaps a more daring style, incorporates sporty elements such as rubber soles or metallic leathers. The modern brogue, quite versatile, will still pair well with suits, but will also work with denims and chinos to update your current look.
