Pop psychology tells us that shoes define the man, so don’t be afraid to spend a pretty penny on a pair of dress shoes. And when purchasing the perfect pair, think “slim.”
Yes, gentlemen, long gone are the days of those platform-like clunky shoes you wear with a suit. To go along with the European-style chic of Western fashion, men should avoid the severe square toe. Instead, opt for the more slender and subtle square tipped footwear. But no matter what you choose, be sure that it defines you.
