How To Choose the Best Shoes for Your Suit

Shoes are any outfit’s foundation. They can make or break your look, which is why there are so many different shoe options. But as you know, the more choices you have the harder it can be to pick the right one for the perfect look.

To make it easier for you to decide which shoe will work best with your outfit, we created this blog post, so read on to choose the best shoes for your suit. 


Black Leather Shoes

A black leather shoe is a very conservative but also classic and versatile shoe. You can’t really go wrong with black shoes, they go particularly well with navy and grey suits, but you can also try to wear them with a tan suit for some contrast. 

Brown Leather Shoes

A pair of medium brown shoes will always bring out your suit’s color, while still playing it relatively safe. Brown adds some low-key flair to tan and navy suits, and it shows that you feel confident adding some color to your outfit. 

Brown Suede Shoes

The texture and dark cocoa color of a brown suede shoe makes them an ideal match for a light grey suit or even a tan colored one. Besides, suede is always a warm weather winner. 


Patent Leather

When wearing a tux, patent leather is an easy, good looking go-to choice. But patent does its best work when you are wearing a tuxedo that mixes it up a bit. For example; a patent leather shoe and a velvet tuxedo jacket will bring your outfit to the next level. 

Cap Toe Shoes

The cap toe shoe is too formal for a suit, but the combination of matte leather accented by patent leather brings some subtle variety to your look. This shoe looks especially good with a head-to-toe black and white outfit. It truly is the way to go for classic peak and notch lapel tuxedos. 

Velvet Loafers

We already summarized the casual texture that a suede shoe brings to a suit, but if it needs to be just a bit more formal, choose a velvet shoe instead. However, a very important pointer would be, that you shouldn’t put all the weight on the velvet slip-ons, pair them with a bold black tartan tuxedo or a white dinner jacket tuxedo.
