Lace-ups are true classics in the world of men’s footwear. Traditionally, lace-up low shoes feature shoelaces, as their name implies, and are ankle height. In versatile basic shades of Black and Brown, their timeless good looks make them an essential element in any man’s wardrobe. Lace-ups are a hallmark of good style, particularly for business or formal occasions.
Lace-ups have a major advantage over loafers because they can be individually adjusted, fitting both narrower and wider feet snugly. We recommend our Extra Wide styles for broader feet. Although leather grows softer and more flexible with wear and shoes may widen once they are worn in, it is important to ensure the footbed is wide enough before purchasing. This will allow your feet to survive the toughest office day or longest party in perfect comfort.
Today’s shoelaces have a far more important role to play than mere closures that provide foot support; they are also fully fledged accessories. The material, colour and width of the shoelace can all significantly influence the wearer’s overall image. As a rule of thumb, the more formal the occasion, the more discreet the shoelaces should be. Instead, when choosing shoes for the office or formal occasions, look for style elements such as lightly textured surfaces or slim toecaps like those on brogues or Budapesters. For extremely formal events, a classic plain Oxford is a suitable choice.
