How To Select The Perfect Pair Of Formal Shoes
The Perfect Pair Of Formal Shoes
Get formal shoes for less when you shop with Spendless! Here are four quick tips for finding your perfect match!
1) Figure out the relevant details first
Before you start looking to buy any formal shoes, you need to answer all of the essential questions.
How official are the event and dress code going to be? How long is the function going to last? Will it be indoors, outdoors, or a mixture of the two? Will there be an after-party? What season will the event get held in, and what kind of weather can you expect? If you are going to a wedding, then do you need to match the styles or colours of formal shoes with the bridal party?
There are many other factors can come into play when choosing formal shoes, but this is an excellent place to start.
2) If you want heels, consider the practicality
Ladies, let's have a quick chat about heel heights and thickness with our formal shoes, shall we?
Everyone already knows the basics of the stiletto vs block heels debate when it comes to formal shoes. If you want the height and elegant look of thin stilettos, then make sure you can handle wearing them for more than a few hours.
If you want to wear heels but expect to be walking across lawns, desks, and other uneven terrain types, then you want formal shoes with a thick platform. Go for some of our strappy espadrille wedges, or a glamorous block heel.
But if you continue to worry about whether or not you will be able to last wearing heels for hours on end, then pick low or flat formal shoes. We have kitten heels and sling-back which would work well for a special occasion, as well as gorgeous flats, slides and sandals.
3) Pick men's formal shoes that will suit you
Our glossy black and tan formal shoes are some of the best styles for men. These come in lace-up or slip-on styles, with toe-cap and textured finishes and all sorts of other cool features included. Whether you are going to a wedding, work function, office party, birthday, dinner, or another event, these are formal shoes that will do the trick. They look great with suits and other classy attire since they can instantly dress up something more laidback and casual.
Then again, just because these dress styles are some of our favourite formal shoes for men, that does not mean that there aren't other versatile styles to consider.
Faux suede boots are one such option. These are great for outdoor functions since you get a more durable tread and more coverage for your feet. In a room full of the same kinds of official-looking formal shoes, a pair of laced faux suede boots can be a relaxed and confident statement.
Sandals could also work well. If you expect scorching hot weather or a venue down at the beach, then these laid-back formal shoes could spare you stinky, sweaty, or sandy feet. Birkenstock-style sandals are a favourite, but we love the full gladiator look this season as well.
