No style is finalized without a great pair of shoes....

No style is finalized without a great pair of shoes. After all, footwear is one of the most important aspects of any look. Remember; w hat you choose to put on your feet actually does reflect something about you, whether it be laziness (socks with slip-on sandals), obliviousness (untied sneakers) or keen style savvy (those trendy suede desert boots).

Suede desert boots look good on everyone. Less formal, less sporty; just the way it should be! If they're good enough for Prince Harry, they are good enough for you too!

Men's footwear brand Allen Edmonds did a survey of 1,000 American men and women, and they found that women judge men's shoes twice as much as men judge women's. 64 percent of women judge a man's fashion sense based on his shoes; 52 percent of women say they judge a man's personality by his shoes; 36 percent say they use shoes to determine a man's financial position; and 54 percent say men's shoes reflect a guy's attention to detail (or lack thereof).

First rule first: Whether you wear Oxfords, sandals or trainers, make sure that they are clean and polished!

Men’s footwear summer fashion trend 2014 collections show a variety of models like loafers, boots, moccasins, sleepers, top-siders and indoor trainers. They come in many styles such as suede, geometric and floral designs, and bright colours. As I see it, using classic shoes in a sporty way is/has been the ‘essential for SS14’ for the designers. We see wicker and perforated materials and partial perforation a lot from well-known brands.

  • Espadrilles. The comfortable trend. We were already expecting this from London Collections: Men spring/summer 2014. They come in neutral shades, bright saturated colours or models with fashionable print. Traditional cotton, fabric or glitter fabric is also used commonly.

  • When it comes to attending to a party or a dinner you can choose smart looking espadrilles, oxfords or loafers. They are always ‘in’. Try to pick the wicker ones (If you go with leather).
