What’s Your Footwear Choice This Winter?

brogue boots

One of the biggest mistakes that guys make when winter is getting close is this: they don’t choose footwear that can protect them from cold.

If you ever had the curiosity to watch how people dress in November, you definitely noticed one thing that made me smile just the other day: a lot of women are already wearing boots, while guys are still in their white sneakers.

Now I’m willing to bet you’ll see a lot of sneakers worn by guys even when it’s going to snow. That’s hilarious, right? Well, not as funny as the guy I saw the other day wearing sandals in November!

The good (?) news was that he wasn’t wearing any socks (thus, he didn’t break the no socks with sandals rule).

Whether you found those real world examples funny or not, it’s time to think about winter footwear.

Here are a few of my picks that I highly encourage you to wear. Some of these boots are expensive but don’t let that scare you. You can find cheaper footwear of almost the same quality if you keep your eyes open. Just make sure the shape and the fabric are the same (or close).

    I think I’ll buy a pair of black boots, I like Grenson Alfred boots, they are quite classic and similar to expensive brand but cheaper then Trickers, Alden and so on. Black boots are great with jeans, chinos and if you have a nice black leather jacket and a black belt, you have a great look for nights out.
    Shoes sold by Leffot are great but too much expensive for my wallet (yet)

    Hey Gus,

    I like the way you’re thinking. May I suggest brown boots as well?

    I was really excited when Leffot agreed for me to repost some of their pictures here, they are A-W-E-S-O-M-E. But I wouldn’t recommend them for the average person.

    Hey what are those boots in the very first picture where the guy is wearing jeans. I’ve been looking for them forever. Itd be great if you could let me know the brand and type of boot, also if there are any cheaper brands that make something similar to them. I’m new to the male fashion scene any help would be much appreciated! Thanks.
