Colder weather is drawing in, which means its time to put away the boat shoes and loafers for a season friendly work-appropriate shoe. The Sebago Salem Oxford ($125) make a great addition to any wardrobe. Like most oxfords, they look good dressy or casual. Leather upper, rubber sole, and a padded collar and tongue give it the comfort you need to wear them all day.
Fall is finally here, and the contemporary gentleman needs a go-to shoe that looks good dressed up or down. The Cole Haan Oswego Plain Oxford ($188) will help you blur the line between dressy and casual. This open-laced bulcher design has leather uppers and a rubber sole, with contrast stitching and a green suede liner. As with all leather lace-ups, these will only get better with age.
Now that Summer is almost over, it’s time to put away the boat shoes and bring out your fall kicks. We suggest investing in a good pair of Clark’s Desert Boots ($75-$110). These classic Chukka boots can’t completely replace your shit-kickers, but those crepe soles hold their own on most type of terrain, and like all leather boots they only get better with age. They are a narrow fit, so make sure to order a half-size bigger.
Need a new pair of sneakers for kicking around on weekends? Look no further than the Adidas ZX380 OG ($80). Adding modern flare to original Adidas style, these kicks will surely keep you looking fresh even if they can’t make you run faster and jump higher.
