Knowing this will not just make you look good. It will make you look really good. The thing is:
Wearing jeans is nice. Wearing your favourite shoes is great. Wearing both at the same time is awesome. Does this sound like something for you? Well, then you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial I’ll show you the dress and casual men’s shoes that happen to be the perfect shoes to wear with jeans. Let’s jump straight in.
Darker jeans have a much dressier look than lighter jeans. This, combined with the casual nature of denim, means that you can wear dark jeans with almost any type of shoes.
There are a couple of shoes that will look too dressy. Don’t despair; I’ll get to those shoes in a bit.
Sneakers with jeans is a proven casual look. Just to make it clear, we’re not talking about technical sneakers, such as the signature sneakers of LeBron James …
To wear these men’s shoes with jeans successfully, the occasion needs to be somewhat casual. If you have a dress code at work, casual Fridays would be the only time to wear these to the office. Otherwise, sneakers and jeans are perfect. To really nail it when wearing sneakers with jeans, make sure you match the colour of your socks with that of your pants (no white tennis socks here).
When it comes to slip-ons, you basically have three choices: Leather loafers, Canvas loafers, Boat shoes. Slip-ons are just the thing if in the summer. Especially if you’re looking for some nice black or brown casual shoes to wear with jeans.
By the way, brown shoes looks better with blue jeans than black jeans. That’s because brown is a warm colour and don’t match cool black pants. Black shoes on the other hand, can be worn with both blue and black jeans.
Anyway, to get the most out of slip-on footwear, choose loafers or moccasins in leather. They handle suits and jeans equally well. But, they don’t lend themselves to business or dressy occasions where lace-up shoes are preferred. Common types are horsebit, tassel, and penny loafers. A thing that’s worth knowing is that, according to the book Gentleman welted loafers are superior to moccasins. Both shoes are made a bit differently:
Loafers have soles and uppers made from separate pieces of material. Whereas moccasins have soles and uppers made from the same piece of leather.You should also know that for casual and everyday wear canvas loafers are a good alternative to sneakers.
