Low shoes, many of them classic styles, feature closed designs but – as the name implies – are only ankle height, and differ from boots in this respect. But there’s nothing low about these shoes! Classic shoes are ideal choices whatever the season, from winter chill to summer heat. Being so versatile, they are among the most popular types of men’s footwear and are essentials in any business and leisure wardrobe.
The best thing about low shoes is that a classic leather model is the perfect choice for virtually any occasion. The simpler the style the better, enabling the shoes to be dressed up or down as required. Lace-up or monk strap styles, loafers or boat shoes? Whatever your preference, your choice is ultimately a question of both occasion and personal taste. Classic shoes are accessories that can add that all-important personal touch to your outfit.
While looks and comfort are key in choosing the perfect classic shoe, the materials naturally also play a vital role. In winter, shoes with profiled rubber soles can easily cope with the first snowfalls. Classic shoes that incorporate Gore-Tex® technology are excellent at keeping feet warm and dry. And because premium leather is outstanding at regulating temperature, LLOYD Classic Shoes are also pleasant to wear in summer.
Shoe trees help to keep the smooth leather of classic shoe styles crease-free for longer. With shoes made from thinner leathers, ensure the shoe tree is a high-quality model that distributes pressure evenly to avoid deforming the shoe.
