Shoes. The famous discarded part of male fashion for many years. There was a time when men would polish their shoes prior to leaving the house on each individual occasion. This was taken over by scruffy trainers and a pair of work shoes that men believed was all they needed.

However in recent years thanks to various sources and experts, men’s shoes have begun to take centre stage once more.

It’s been found that women spend on average £6,500/$8,700 on shoes before they turn 40 years old.

It’s also been found that on average women own 27 shoes at any one time including 9 they don’t actually wear anymore.

Men on average own 12 shoes, 4 they don’t actually wear anymore, leaving 8 shoes that they wear at any one time.

This may sound reasonable to most men, but when you figure out that at least one of these are work shoes, one are gym trainers, at least two pairs are for the wrong weather conditions like boots in summer, and most likely there will be one pair that the man uses to simply pop to the shops in, are out of date, broken, etc.

This leaves around 3 shoes that the average man has for events that actually matter. Some may think this is enough but how can it be? You have more than 3 outfits, or at least should do, and 3 pairs of shoes just can’t stretch that far.

 

Buying A Variety

It’s time for men to take a leaf out of women’s books. We men need to focus our style funds more on our footwear.

3 pairs of non-purpose shoes isn’t enough. There’s nothing worse than getting ready and feeling as though something is missing or that you don’t quite look your best.

It’s easy to be versatile with actual clothing, there’s a lot of mixing and matching you can do in order to make an outfit work.

However your shoes are pretty fixed and a good variety is needed in order to add flexibility and reliability to your wardrobe.

It may seem like a lot of money, especially if you have the mindset that one trusty pair can last you a year or two. But with there being so many different colors and styles, it makes sense to add a range.

If you take the time to build your shoe collection and then update it reguarly, you’ll never regret it. This will give you a selction problem, which is a good thing. It’s better to find yourself in deliberation over 2 pairs, than having to settle for a single pair that doesn’t look good in the first place.
