5 Pairs Of Classic Shoes For The Office

There's no point dressing the part for work if you're not sporting the right footwear. Here are 5 classic styles you can't go wrong with.

It’s hard to take someone seriously in a lousy or slightly adventurous pair of shoes (apart from Steve Jobs, no-one really seemed to care about his Merrells for some reason).

The shoes you wear and the condition they're in say a lot about you. Especially the shoes you wear to work. Not necessarily the mark of a man but a good starting point if you're of a judgemental persuasion.

I'd therefore always err on the side of caution and keep to classic styles when picking shoes to wear with a suit for the office.

Here are five pairs very much at home in the city. None of them are cheap, granted, but they'll last you a good few years and in some cases a lifetime with a bit of care and the help of a good cobbler.

1. Russell and Bromley- Keeble 3 Tassel College Loafer £175 (pictured above)

2. Church’s- Chetwynd Brogue Polished Leather £390


3. Bass Weejuns- Larson Loafer Shoe £95


4. Loake Dorchester Oxford Shoe £199


5. John Lobb Monk Strap Shoe £675
