Ah, yes. Fall’s chilly weather is just around the corner. Not cold enough for leather shoes lined with lush fabrics, yet not warm enough for mandals we wore during the summer weekends. Now that people are back at work we have to rethink our shoe game:

-What men’s shoe is too casual for the workplace?

– What men’s shoe is too formal for the bar?

With the help of our friends at Bloomingdales, we came up with perfect examples that allow you to dress the part for work and be ready to mingle at the bar.

The picks

These shoes will give you a little pick me up attitude when running from place to place. Whether you are having casual lunch meetings, running errands, heading to an after work happy hour or just trying to brace yourself for the cold weather that lies ahead, these kicks will add an edge to your fall wardrobe.

The styling

These shoes have a minimal look, but are still packed with lots of detail. Keeping a low profile in color, we are able to wear this selection with just about anything. This makes it all the more versatile when getting dressed in the morning.

The price

The kicks chosen in this Fall category range  between $98 to $353

Note*
At first glance, handing over $350 can seems like a lot especially when you need to go buy a new winter coat. Our tip, is to think about quality. Your paying for quality, which ultimately comes down a subject of durability. How long will these shoes will last? Fall is the most brutal time of year for your shoes. Paying a couple dollars to buy a good quality shoe to get your through the season is critical.

Why we dig it

-Getting these kicks is an easy way to switch up your wardrobe for Fall

-The casual look of a lace-up can be dressed up with a nice chino or woven fabric jogger.

-If the coated oxford seems to formal for your taste, opt to make it more casual by tossing on a pair of detailed black denim jeans. The style opportunities are endless.

-All of these shoes offer a balance between casual and formal making them the best pieces to wear from the office out to a night on the town.
