What’s in a shoe? 

They always say that your shoes are the first thing that people notice about you, and we all know that the first impression is what lasts the longest. From just sneakers and flip-flops, shoes have evolved beyond the basics with large varieties of sports shoes and formal shoes for men taking the market by storm. At abof, we present to you the widest range of shoes, from basic running shoes to trekking boots to Oxfords and Brogues and much more! Here are a few tips on how to choose the perfect shoes for you!

Step out in Comfort and Style

General rules for shoes

Finding a shoe that matches or is darker than your pants is always the most important thing to keep in mind while selecting a pair of formal shoes. Next, try and find a pair of shoes that matches your belt, as this will balance your entire ensemble and making you look classy at every event.

While choosing the right sports shoes, keep in mind that comfort is of the utmost importance. Ensure that the shoes you’re trying on will allow you to run, jump and perform other physical activity without injuring your ankles and your feet. And if you plan on using it for a specific sport, make sure to purchase the right pair.

What to wear for different occasions

When you’re going for a formal event, the most obvious choice of shoes would be your black or brown formal shoes. However, if the event is a little less formal, and you have the freedom to experiment with your clothing and shoes, loafers and oxfords are your go-to pairs. These styles will make you look like you’re dressed to the nines, while still being comfortable enough to navigate a party all evening.

If you have to make a choice between the various sports shoes for men, always go for comfort above all else. A less eventful sporting event such as a golf tournament or just an evening hike with friends may call for a better style of sport shoes that you can choose from, but if you’re participating in a basketball or football game, make sure to have the right footwear, or you may just end up injuring yourself.

Where to find the perfect shoes

Finding the right shoes involves taking a lot into consideration – fit, style, comfort, look and much more. At abof, you can choose from a wide range of formal shoes and sports shoes for men, ranging from more basic models to some of the best the market has to offer.

Keep in mind the look and occasion that you’re going for, and don’t be scared to experiment with new styles. You will never be able to perfect your style unless you try a couple of times! Always remember to be comfortable in your outfit, because it can have an effect on your day if you are uncomfortable with what you are wearing. Whether it is a formal occasion or just a day out with friends, the right shoes can keep you looking and feeling great.
