Goodyear-welted brogues belong to leisure wear


Anything goes? Almost! There are many options out there for leisurewear, but rules still apply. You just need to find your personal style for casual & leisure wear.

Goodyear-welted men’s shoes, particularly those with broguing, loafers, or even men’s boots, are excellent paired with casual business wear, such as a sport coat paired with jeans or chinos.

Overly elegant shoes are out of place in leisurewear

When it comes to leisurewear, the rules are very relaxed. The following factors ought to be taken into account when choosing the right type of men’s shoe: personal style, lifestyle, age, and prevailing climate and weather conditions. Since all of those are subjective variables, there aren’t any universally applicable rules, but rather a handful of tips.


Boots look great with cargo trousers and cotton sweaters. Suede full brogues are magnificent with corduroys. Boat shoes, on the other hand, are a perfect fit for a polo and jeans. Although sporty leisurewear is relaxed, it can still command respect. That being said, overly elegant shoes have no place here. This type of clothing calls for Goodyear-welted leather shoes with open lacing (Derby-style) and stitching that runs around the entire shaft.
