Menswear Monday: Spring Footwear Guide

When it comes to the world of men’s shoes, it really is an exciting time to be a guy. Not that I have experience in it firsthand, but I definitely believe that a well-dressed man isn't complete without the perfect pair of shoes, am I right? There are lots of awesome footwear options this spring for guys to put on heavy rotation—from sandals to sneakers; we’re seeing lots of old favorites making a triumphant comeback in stylish new ways!

Below is our shortlist of top styles to note this spring for men’s footwear—straight from the runways to real life. There’s really something for every guy. There’s the laidback fisherman sandal, which by the way, is one throwback style that’s making a very unexpected but welome return.

There’s also a huge focus on retro-style sneakers from New Balance, Nike and other classic athletic brands. These aren’t just for the gym or running errands, gents. On the contrary, the most stylish guys are wearing them with everything from chinos and a blazer to even mixing things up by rocking them with their corporate business suits! They sure make those morning commutes a lot more comfortable.

If you’re less on-the-go dude and more beach-bum material this spring and summer, you’ll love the leather slides that are popping up all over the place, particularly in leather. Birkenstock sandals, anyone?

For the more preppy gentlemen out there, there’s something for you, too. The moccasin loafer is a great option for a more laidback addition to your chinos and other office staples. Who knew your dad’s favorite shoe would be deemed as one of the season’s most on-trend men’s shoe must haves? Fashion really has a cyclical nature, doesn’t it?
