9 Essential Shoes for Daytime Wear

We believe that men’s shoes are just as important in the daytime as they are at night. From the office to the grocery store, your feet should be wrapped in comfort and style. While we all have a reliable, favorite pair, it’s called a shoe rotation for a reason—wearing the same pair of shoes every day without break not only wears them down, but it makes you look dull and worn, as well.

1.  Black Lace-Up

A versatile black lace-up is a must for every shoe rotation.  A plain-toe shoe made of calfskin with a leather sole is formal enough for most occasions. We like the Rizzo from Bacco Bucci — it’s even denim-friendly.

2. Brownwing

A brown longwing is much more casual–and versatile.  A longwing is at home in a non-white collar environment with a sport coat or with jeans. There are tons of shades of brown to choose from:  The Dark Brown Smooth Calfskin All Weather Walker from Alden is a very versatile option, wearable even on those bad-weather days.

3. Burgundy Loafer

Another versatile shoe to have in your rotation is a burgundy loafer for comfort and quick on and off.  Burgundy is a great color because it goes with anything a black shoe does and more.  Bit and Tassel loafers are fine, but a classic penny loafer can be dressed up a bit for more formal occasions.  Try the Pinch Penny from Cole Haan.

4. Driver

Another variation of the loafer is the Driving Moccasin.  A great option for when you are traveling long distances, the driving moc will get you from here to there and keep your tired feet comfortable on the way back from a long day.  Relax in reliable style with the Double Bottom Cowhide Driving Moc from Minnetonka in Dark Brown Lariat or Chestnut.

5. Desert Boot

A classic look that is also comfortable thanks to their crepe soles, the Desert Boot is a pleasant part of your rotation, especially on days that involve a lot of walking.  You can’t go wrong with Clarks in Oakwood Suede or Beeswax Leather.

6. Canvas Pop

Add some color with a reliable canvas shoe. Navy works for any season, so we suggest the Hookset Camp Canvas Oxford from Timberland.  Less daring? It’s also available in black. Very daring? Try the Cherry Red Canvas 8-Eye Boot from Dr Martens.

7.  Boat Shoe

A casual shoe with function and iconic nautical style, a boat shoe is great for a leisurely afternoon on the water. Go sockless and be ready for anything in the Authentic Original from Sperry Top-Sider.

 8. Double Monk

A Monk is interesting and captures attention, drawing comment from others. A double monk makes a statement all on its own. Our pick? The Conard Double Monk Strap from Johnston & Murphy.

9. Reliable Boot

Sometimes life gets rough. On days when you need to be up for anything, it helps to have a well-constructed, dependable leather boot. Made in America with Horween Chromexcel leather, the 1,000 Mile Boot from Wolverine is a great choice to keep you going when the going is tough.

Night Out Attire


It’s been a long week, and you’re ready to wash away all of your workweek stress. You’ve made plans with your friends or date, but there’s one last detail to cover… what do you wear? A night out means that everyone will be looking their best, and you want to belong without blending in.

Not surprisingly, your night out outfit’s appropriateness depends on where you are going.

 If you’re going to a Night Club there will always be a dress code and it will vary based on region and even the club itself. Do some research into what is appropriate.  Nightclubs mean lots of hot, sweaty bodies and spilling drinks.  Navy and grey are dark enough to flatter and they disguise sweat and spills in UV nightclub lighting, black and light colored fabrics do not.

Keep in mind that your shoes will probably take a beating from the club scene. Resist the temptation to sport your most expensive pair.  A leather that you can clean and polish up like new the next day are ideal. Keep it classic with a black, plain toed shoe like the Eddy from Nunn Bush, with a slip-resistant rubber sole and padded collar to prevent blisters. If you need to keep it casual, take it down a few notches in something trendy from Cole Haan. Take it a step further and stand out with a pair of chukkas with a pop of color like the Lunargrand Chukka.

Meanwhile, for Date Night, you should avoid expecting the mess and dress to impress instead. What is appropriate always depends on the venue, so call or stop by before the date to see what kind of outfit will fit in.  If you are short on time, you can always look the restaurant up online on sites like CitySearch and Google for photos and suggestions.  Go-tos include sharply tailored silhouettes and darker or subtle neutral shades.

Most importantly, be sure to tell your date what you’re wearing so that you don’t out-dress her. Then, pay attention to your shoes–because she will, too. A well-kept black slip-on like the Vellum from Mezlan appears classic and effortless. At a more casual venue or during a day date, the soft deerskin Wimbley from Alan Payne will keep you looking cool and at ease. For a more rugged look, put on a pair of lace-up boots like the Alden Indy boot.

Whatever you choose, remember that your best accessory for a night out is confidence. Keep a good attitude and you’re sure to have a good time, regardless.

High Quality Moreschi Shoes Available at

If there’s one word that epitomizes Moreschi shoes, it’s quality. The use of refined CAD software (computer aided design) is the only computerized stage in the production process. All the leather is stored in a leather warehouse; available leathers can cover up to a year’s worth of production. 80% of the leather is cut using metal dies, though there are still several models that are hand-cut.

The shoes then go to the sewing department, which is composed of highly trained professionals. The moccasins, in particular, are still hand-sewn according to the 50-year-old procedures. The shoe then goes through the lasting process, or the process by which the body is attached to the “last” sole. The shoes are finished in a special department whose processes include cleaning, polishing, and branding of the sole.

Moreschi shoes are available at, an online retailer of the biggest shoe brands. Many of these shoes are on sale.
