Five British made shoes every man should own

Posted by Ben Bailey on

The old saying goes that you can judge a man by his shoes. Britain has a rich heritage of shoemakers and to this day we are proud to produce the very best in the world.

The price tag of a good pairs of shoes can be off-putting for some. While many men opt for cheaper shoes, they will inevitably be of an inferior quality. It can prove to be a false economy, with the cost of replacements over the years far outweighing the initial outlay for a decent pair.

A shrewdly selected arsenal of footwear can not only provide the versatility needed to span both business and pleasure, but well looked after, they will last you the rest of your life. Here we explore the five pairs of shoes every man should have in his wardrobe, and in our opinion, will prove a wise investment for years to come:

The Loafer
Good for summer or winter, the loafer is a must-have for smart-casual wear. Worn with chinos, jeans or even shorts, they are comfortable yet smart, and can elevate an otherwise relaxed weekend outfit to a cool birthday ensemble.
