5 BEST Selling Dress Shoes? | MUST OWN Men's Footwear
5 BEST Selling Dress Shoes MUST OWN Men'sFootwear [0:00:00] The five best selling dress shoes.
In today’s video, gents, I’m going tobe talking about the dress shoes which fly off the shelf.
[Music]I'm here in New York City at Paul Evans.
My friend, Evan owns this shop.
I've known him for years.
And we were talking about what are the shoesthat are flying off the shelf, what are the shoes he can't keep in stock because there'swisdom in crowds.
When you know that men are, again, selectivelychoosing these shoes and I found that the five best sellers were very strong choices.
These are shoes that I have in my wardrobe.
I thought you would like this information.
I'm going to talk about each of the shoes.
I'm going to talk about why and how they canfit into your wardrobe.
So, sit back guys I think you're going toenjoy today's video.
Shoe number one on our list and no surprise, gentlemen, is the cap toe oxford.
This is going to be one of the dressiest shoesthat you can have in your wardrobe, perfect with a suit with casual suits.
You could possibly wear this when you dressdown a bit maybe with odd trousers.
I wouldn't wear this with jeans.
The color you see here is oxblood, but you'remost commonly going to see this in black sometimes a dark brown maybe even a medium brown, butdarker colors for this dress shoe.
Again, this is the number one seller and Ithink should be in every man's wardrobe.
Key features are going to be that cap toewhich we see right here.
Also, we're going to see the closed lacing.
So, that's where the back part of the shoethe quarter goes right underneath the vamp which is this part so the vamp goes on topand we've got this closed lacing system.
Very overall a sleek design, a simple designsomething that’s been around a long time.
It's a classic.
You cannot go wrong with adding this shoein your wardrobe.
Look for a leather sole to have the dressiestcap toe oxford that you can wear.
If you want to go for something let's saythat’s going to have a rubber sole, it's still going to be a very dressy shoe, butthe rubber sole do you notice? It's a little bit clunkier it's a little bitheavier, therefore it's not going to be as dressy.
But, hey, if you're living in a city you doa lot of commuting you need traction, then a rubber sole is probably something you wantto look for.
But, you could have some that, you know, gofor a leather sole with a rubber sole.
You can go to a cobbler, they can actuallyput a strip of rubber right across there and that could be a great compromise.
Now, gents, all the beautiful shoes you'regoing to see in today's video can be found over at Paul Evans.
I’m going to pull up their website rightnow look at these beautiful shoes.
Since 2012, I've been working with Paul Evans.
I've got twelve I think now maybe thirteenpairs of his shoes in my wardrobe guys.
I can tell you I love this brand I love whatthey make and I've got a great deal for you.
Use code RMRS100 for $100 off your investmentin a pair of Paul Evans.
So, go through there, check out all the shoesI’m about to talk about these five best sellers or maybe find something that, youknow, is a bit unique that a lot of men don't pull off.
Here's a perfect example of a shoe that moremen should try, a blue suede loafer.
Guys, we were talking about best sellers andsuede is not one of the best sellers, but I will tell you that this is a shoe this isa style that you should look to incorporate in your wardrobe.
A lot of guys scared off by suede.
Just simply don't wear it in that really badweather don't go running through mud in shoes like this, instead walk into a room standout look great with just footwear that sets you apart from the crowd.
Check this out, isn’t this a beautiful ankleboot? Look at it, you’ve got the double monk strap, you've got the cap toe, you got a little bit of the broguing right in here.
I can tell you this is not a best seller, but this shoe is going to set you apart from the pack.
And that's where I love about Paul Evans, he's got sneakers he's got the classics.
He's bringing in a lot of different shoes, so go check him out down here in the description I'm going to link over.
Use that code RMRs100.
It is not going to be around forever becauseit's too good of a deal.
It's a good company I know the founders andthey're making a great product.
These are Blake- stitched coming out of Italy, highly recommend.
All right, guys, let’s get back to the list.
Shoe number two on our list, gentlemen, thewholecut.
This is a modern classic, it's going to bemore fashion-forward than that cap toe oxford we just talked about.
But, get this in black get this in a darkbrown, you could still wear this with a suit.
It's going to like I said it's going to besomething maybe for the younger man the man that isn't as concerned and is willing togo out on a little bit of a limb.
Now, you could wear this for the black forthe tuxedo.
I think actually that looks great.
This has a very nice sleek design.
And that's the key with the wholecut is theoverall simple and sleek design.
I think in twenty years, this will becomea classic shoe.
It’s just something when I look at it itis so simple and to me simplicity is one of the key functions of menswear.
Now, with the simplicity comes a price.
When you're looking at a wholecut, understandthe price is going to be high because they had to use a very large piece of unblemishedleather in order to make this.
Specifically, it's only in the back wherewe see actually the leather is stitched together.
So, it's because they had to be very selectiveabout the product about the material that went into building this product that the pricesoftentimes going to be really high.
Now, with the wholecut, you're going to wantto go for a leather sole.
If you don't want to have leather soles youwant more traction, then what you want to do is maybe go to a cobbler, he can put astrip of rubber going across here maybe something on the heel, but overall you're going to wantsomething that has also a very sleek design.
That's why a Blake stitch for a wholecut tome is optimum.
[0:05:11]Shoe number three when it comes to best sellers, gentleman, the semi brogue.
So, this is going to look very similar tothe cap toe oxford except we're going to have broguing.
Broguing is basically where they go into andthey put perforations basically small holes in designs into the leather.
So, we see it right over here, we're goingto see it go right around the vamp and on the back heel we're going to have what appearsto be another piece of leather thrown on top of that with design put right into there.
So, this is going to be something you don'twant to wear maybe with a business suit, but you can wear it with a casual suit, you canwear with odd trousers.
If this was in black, I think in some circles, yes, you could probably pull this off with a business suit.
But, this is always going to be because ofthe broguing, it's going to be more casual.
Now, you may be asking, okay, Antonio, I'veheard the word full, bro.
What’s difference between a semi brogueand a full bro? A full brogue also known as a wingtip is basicallygoing to have more design in on the broguing.
Instead of a cap toe, what we're going tosee is this type of the toe right here and you've got what looks to be wings on here.
And right here we also see on the front toewe see a medallion design.
Also, on the back of the wingtip it lookslike we're going to have another layer of leather thrown on with broguing in here.
At the end of the day, all this extra designall this extra broguing makes the shoe more casual.
Shoe number four on our bestseller list, gentleman, is going to be the classic penny loafer.
This is a casual shoe this is something thatyou could wear with an odd trouser odd jacket.
You could wear it with jeans you could dressit up and wear this with a light-colored casual suit especially this color here, black maybeyou could wear it with a gray suit or something like that.
But, this is something that you do not wantto wear in necessarily a business environment.
Now, if you're hanging out around the officeand you want something that's comfortable, then go ahead wear this around because that'swhere the origin of the loafer comes from is loafing around.
Think about it.
It was something that was meant to be slippedon slipped off when you were at the home.
The slipper had, you know, bit of a historywith this.
You can also say that it had some influencefrom the moccasin.
I love this as a travel shoe.
Now, what didn't make this list was the doublemonk strap and this is another type of loafer.
This to me is actually a little bit dressier.
The buckle, I just love the look of this oneright here.
But neither of them because they lack lacingand because they lack a history and an association with dressier shoes, these in general, again, they're going to be something that you want to wear with more casual clothing.
But, I think if you go especially for brownsdark browns maybe even look at a suede a blue suede over here, don’t that look great? This is something that you can wear with awide variety, you can even wear this with shorts with maybe, you know, no-show socksthe right kind of shorts actually ones that don't have cargo pockets on them.
At the end of the day, guys, I think thisis a best seller because it fits in a lot of those areas when, yeah, you don't wantto wear running shoes, you want something that is just going to look great at the sametime it's going to be casual is going to be comfortable, that's where the penny loaferfalls in.
Next up, gents, we've got the classic chukkaboots.
And the chukka boot evolved from the WorldWar II desert booth.
They say in North Africa whenever the officersup in the English military hired these cobblers to build these, they didn't have much materialto go with they went with a very simple design a blucher design which is basically when theback quarter goes over the vamp.
So, we see this right here how this part isgetting slapped onto this front part of the leather.
That right there makes this a very casualtype of shoe, but this is also a boot.
Boots are casual, but when you see them madefrom a very smooth high-end leather like this, it's a very I think sleek classic design.
With two eyelets, that is going to be probablyone of the dressier looks.
Once you start to go to four eyelets, you'llsee that on more casual ones that oftentimes incorporate a rubber sole, so you’ll seea wide range of chukkas out there.
Know that f you want to wear this with a casualsuit you want to wear this with jeans to dress up the jeans, you want to go for a more elegantvery streamlined look.
That's why I like the Blake stitch.
You will find Goodyear welted chukkas outthere you will find cemented chukkas, try to avoid those.
That's the least expensive and something youdon't want.
I wouldn't wear this with a suit unless theweather is really bad, then it provides a bit of protection I think you could pull itoff.
When you're buying shoes, what I highly adviseis you save up you buy the best that you can afford.
You want something that when you shine itwhen you take care of this upper, overtime it's going to look better and better.
All right, gents, that's it.
Let me know what you thought of this videodown in the comments and go check out these boots.
Aren't they beautiful? I just love these.
I love — I have to admit.
You guys know I love my double monk straps, so they actually now have a boot that's got the double monk has this nice cap toe withthe little bit of broguing in there.
This is something that I'm going to rock withdark-colored jeans.
