A timeless classic, the Oxford shoes should be a part of every gentleman’s shoe closet. The construct of the shoe is low-heeled with a short back, and features a closed lacing system, where the bottom where the laces start is stitched. Overall, this gives a neat and polished look, perfect to be paired with a tailored suit.
Derby shoes are another timeless style of formal shoes similar to Oxford shoes, with the exception that they feature an open lacing system where the bottom of the lacing section is not sewn shut. The traditional leather varieties are suitable to be paired with a classic, formal look, while materials like suede are used to make Derby shoes for those who seek the stylish, casual look.
3. Monk Straps
Monk straps shoes lie somewhere between the Oxford and the Derby, being less formal than the Oxford but more formal than the Derby. This style has a strap across the top with either one or two buckles, giving a very sleek, sharp look. It is certainly convenient for those who don’t like to mess around with laces.
Loafers are another type of lace less shoes that feature a Moccasin-like build. These slip-on dress shoes give off a very relaxed but stylish vibe. While this style can be adapted to a number of looks, it is more suitable for the dandiest among us.
