A classic shoe style with a formal, elegant, and dressy appeal. Oxfords come in any color although black and browns are most popular.

3. DRESS BOOTS.
dress boots are a sleek and minimalistic boot style that can be worn with jeans, odd trousers, and suits (in rainy or snowy weather). Dress boots come in a wide variety of styles such as brougai, wing tip, monk strap, and cap toed..
The term “Monk strap” refers to the buckled strap the replaces shoe laces. Monk straps come with one, two, and even three straps, are available in any color, can be made from a wide variety of different leathers, and can be cap toed as well as wingtipped (see below). Monk strap shoes are perfect for those who seek a more unique type of shoe that will draw attention. When matching the shoes, make sure that the color of the clasp Typically silver, brass, or gold) matches your belt buckle, wrist watch, and cufflinks (should you choose to wear those).
5.White Leather (or Canvas) Sneakers
Every guy needs a pair of white sneakers just to look more off duty casual. it doesn't necessarily to be white..but you need a pair of sneakers.
6. PENNY LOAFERS.
Loafer’s are the traveling business man’s best friend. They slip on and off easily when going through security, they are comfortable, and versatile. The sleeker and simpler the design the more formal it is. Also, darker colors are more formal (black being the most formal), and the less of your socks are visible the more formal the look. Loafers look great with jeans and dress pants, as well as with suits when not wearing a necktie. Common loafer variations are monk straps, tasseled decorations, penny loafers, and formal pumps
Derby shoes have the shoelace eyelet tabs sewn on top of a single-piece vamp. They are considered to be a little less formal than oxfords, because the open laces allow the shoe to open much wider and as a result, are easier to put on. We would argue that derby shoes are the definition of “business casual”.
8.BROGUES AND WINGTIPS.
The term “Wing Tip” refers to the shape of the cap toe that looks like wings stretching across the front of the shoe. Most wing tips are Derby shoes decorated with brogue leather. While most wing tips are solid in color (mostly back or brown), two-toned date back to the 1920s (black & white). Today two-toned wingtips are once again quite popular and perfect for a smart-casual dress.Wingtips are a popular shoe style that comes in any color and style
For those summer days when you don't feel like wearing any uptight shoe. or flips and still want to look good..
These shoes have become fashionable footwear and are considered to be less formal than dress shoes but more formal than loafers. Boat shoes suggest a casual athleticism and an eye toward style. This style of shoes can be worn with or without socks, although many traditionalists prefer a sockless appearance, perhaps stemming from the likelihood that the wearer might want to take off the shoes and go barefoot while on a boat or on the beach. Manufacturers often include removable sock pads for additional cushioning.
11.LOAFERS & MOCCASINS.
loafers & moccasins are slip-on shoes and are one of our favorites. The difference between loafers and moccasins is that they have different origins and are slightly cut differently. The big difference is that loafers have a distinct heel, so many would argue that the difference is basically in the sole. The cool thing about this type of shoes is that they come in such a huge variety that it’s hard to say precise if they are to be worn at formal occasions or at casual ones. It really depends on the fabric and the color of the shoe. Dressier loafers can be worn at formal occasions, while colorful ones that come in more casual fabrics, should be worn at work or casual occasions.
