Nothing is more essential to the final touches of an outfit than the shoes that you put on your feet. These days the trend has been to wear white trainers with everything; jeans, chinos, joggers or shorts - you name it and you can probably wear them with it. It really doesn’t have to be that way though, with the boohooMAN footwear collection, you have the option to mix things up without breaking the bank.
A style that is synonymous with the hip-hop scene of 90’s New York and the likes of Jay-Z & the Notorious B.I.G. the Worker Boot is a shoe at the very root of function. Originally made specifically for outdoor use, it’s a style that has gradually trickled into the fashion world and over winter they’ll be your go-to shoes simply because of how durable they are. Wear them with jeans and a parka and you’ll be untouchable in water, wind & snow.
Desert & Chelsea Boots
Two very similar styles, one with laces and one without, the Desert Boot and Chelsea Boot are the most versatile option. Usually made from suede or similar materials, they’re pretty hardy shoes that can take a real beating and often look a little better once they’ve had some wear. They look the part with a pair of skinny jeans but aside from that can be worn with anything from a leather jacket to and MA-1 bomber.
Brogues & Derby
The smartest of the bunch but that’s not to say that they can’t be worn for the casual occasions too. Ideally they should be worn with smart trousers, a shirt and knitwear but can look just as good with jeans, t-shirt and a smart jacket. The key here is to pick out the right shape for you, if you’re short don’t wear anything too long but instead pick a chunky derby whereas if you’re pretty tall patterned brogues work better thanks to the added benefit of shortening the apparent length of your feet.
