Latest Trends In Menís Shoes - 2012 Styles
2011-12-21 Source: Browse:

Just when you thought you mastered the way to a woman's heart, she scans you from top to bottom; checks out your hair, moves down to your shirt, your pants... and she's horrified. She gasps and says that she forgot that she must bring her dog to the vet. What could have turned her off? You made sure your hair was combed to perfection, you wore your best sweater (in the color that really flatters your eyes), and even made sure to match.

You approach your female friend who is at the same restaurant as you, and she immediately points out the problem: your shoes. It turns out that when women are looking at your feet, they aren't just checking out their size (to determine the length of your shoes, of course...), but they're actually making sure you have good taste in them.

you'll be a shoe-in 

 Men, allow me to let you in on a little secret. Shoes can literally make or break an entire outfit -- this cannot be stressed enough. And this isn't only essential when it comes to women, but it's also crucial when applying for a job, and going out on the town with friends. If you want others to be impressed when they look you over, you'd better make sure your shoes match the rest of your outfit, and that they are of the latest style. This means that it's time to get rid of your desert boots and Doc Martens.

So here is the rundown of fashionable shoes presently in the dressy, casual and sporty departments, for all of you with a real foot fetish.

dressy shoes 

 With the merging of business casual in the workplace and beyond, there is a fine line between dressy and casual shoes. Many shoes can pass for both dressy and less formal occasions, and can go with everything from chinos and jeans to a suit.

The trend in dress shoes is more of a square toe (as seen in the Prada line), rather than wingtips. Shoes are more square and wide rather than narrow and round -- this goes for both laced shoes or loafers.

As for the sole, the wedge heel has crept into men's shoe styles. There are still shoes that have a separate heel, but you'll find shoes that have a wedge, and rubbery heel (wedge heel means that the sole resembles one platform, rather than a separated heel and toe -- and looks like, well, a wedge).

If you want to dress down your shoes, opt for a rubber sole rather than wood.


casual footwear 

Like I said, many casual shoes can be worn to work and with suits (of course, it depends on what line of work you're in). There are casual shoes that can pass for dress shoes, with the rubber sole and wedge heel, in both lace shoes and loafers. Ankle boots are also in style, with either laces, a velcro strip (that fastens the shoe) or an elastic band.

 Speaking of elastics, a fashionable form of loafer that is presently in style is a slip-on with an elastic band at the front or the sides, to keep the shoes on and add a bit of detail. This elastic shoe is enough of a detail to add some originality to your shoes in a rather subtle way.

As for laces in dress/casual shoes, you'll find that laces are thin, unless you're dealing with the latest bowling trend.
