Shoes for him: Gift guide for me

I’ve got style, which makes difficult buying something for a guy. You’d think it be easy, but not all guys dress like Kanye West. It’s one thing to see something and say “Oh my gosh, he should would love this.” But what he should do verses the reality can be apples and vodka shots. Ah, I digress. In the ideal world, “his” style is a reflection of mine. That said, I’m compiling this gift guide on the basis that he’d love most, if not all, the things I bequeath. Our closets would be one in the same. (considering the whole boyfriend trend going around, trust that this does happen).

I thought I’d start with shoes, because at least think I can confirm that shoes have held importance to most men I’ve attracted or been attracted to. And, quite possibly, I’ve always felt if you that if you can connect with your taste in shoes, you both may be on your way to a fruitful future.

Can’t really go wrong with Chucks, ever. Sure they have a strong `80s aesthetic, but they’re still understated. Just a second look until you’d realize there’s patent embellished on the ankles. I think they also came in all-black, but they’ve long sold out. Not bad in price either 65 GBP.


Cute. Masculine, hence why I prefer the wine hue, but chic. I notice that as some men get hold, there’s this desire to ‘shed’ the streetwear image they one coveted. Sneakers become something you’d rather wear to the laundry mat, rather an authentic fashion statement. But as for me, no matter how many heels, boots and shoes mount up in my closet, I will always be a lover of sneakers. But I can appreciate upgrade their street appeal, with shoes such as these.

Who is Thomas Erber and what is Le Cabinet de Curiosités? I had no idea until I came across these lovelies. I’ve always wanted a pair of shoes similar to these (available for 900 euros exclusively at Colette), and by the price of these, I suppose they’ll remain on my dream list of quite a while. And so it remains for him as well.


Oh yes, one of the sexiest shoes I’ve seen yet. I hold these Lanvin plaid sneakers close to my heart. And admittedly, if I had to choose, I’d go with me, and the boyfriend would get a box of coal. Christmas is a about giving, I know, but for 1517 euros, I’d have to be whipped.

These hunting boots remind me of Moccasins. Oh and wait, what do you know. As stated in the description “The true moccasin boots are finished with leather laces, cream leather gusset tongue, leather lining, cushioned leather insole, heel pulls and a sports crepe sole.” They certainly do have a feminine flair, but they look durable. Besides, one should never judge the outer appearance, as they say.

Stay tuned for part II, I think that one will be… the coat.
