In today’s society tennis shoes appear to be the normal everyday shoe of choice. They are comfortable and come in various assortments of style and color. I never was a fan of wearing tennis shoes and felt that something a tad more presentable should be worn. In my opinion, nothing looks smarter than a nice set of shoes coupled with a pair of jeans and button down shirt. This past week I found myself looking for a new set of shoes. The shoes I had in mind were a set of light brown wingtips versatile enough to wear with a suit or casual attire.
A set of good quality shoes with proper maintenance will last for years, however buying nice shoes doesn’t have to involve spending a lot of money. I typically only purchase things when there are sales or while shopping at outlet malls. I found the perfect set of Cole Haan wingtip shoes after browsing through a few stores at a particular outlet mall . Best of all the shoes were about $100 off of the original sale price.
If you have a limited budget there are some fairly inexpensive pairs of shoes that also look well. Here are a set of Wingtip shoes from DSW which look similar to the ones I purchased for even less (the color varies depending on selection).
Dressing smart or dapper doesn’t have to be an activity limited to people who spend a lot of money on clothing. If you stick with with interchangeable classic items you won’t have to buy as many shoes, shirts, suits, etc. Always keep an eye out for deals and stores which offer quality clothing at a discounted price, any chance to save money should be taken advantage of.
