Men's Formal Shoes
While casual shoes and sandals can be more forgiving, a perfect fit is a must-have for formal shoes. Because of their more structured design, stiffer materials like leather and more dressed up profile, dress mens shoes need to fit just right to prevent discomfort and even potential damage to your foot. For occasion wear to events like weddings and race days, or for a more day to day formal shoe for the office, you’ll find exactly what you need in our formal shoe section.
Black or brown? What colour formal shoes should you wear?
From as far back into history as the 1700s, black mens shoes were seen as the more formal option for going into town or out in the evening, while brown shoes were more respectable for the daytime. Fortunately since then fashion rules have relaxed and all sorts of bold footwear choices are now acceptable when it comes to getting dressed up for a day or night on the town.
If you still prefer to pair black suits or trousers with a black leather shoe, our selection of round and square toe shoes in both lace up and elastic options are perfect for a classic formal look. For the gentleman who prefers brown, either for a daytime formal occasion or just to pair with grey, blue or navy suits and pants, we have a variety of high quality dress shoes from Julius Marlow, Florsheim, Colorado and more.
