Dress shoes are the most difficult category to find barefoot friendly. Earlier this year I put together the Women’s Dress Shoe Roundup and the Women’s Wedding Shoes list, but until now have not looked into options for men. Just like women, there are many men out there in need of a shoe to wear to work, weddings, or church without sticking out like a sore thumb. Amazingly, shoemakers are rising to the challenge and just in the last year alone several new styles have been developed.
These are all the dress men’s shoes that I am aware of. If you hear of more, let me know!
Zaqq – Zaqq has an astounding number of men’s dress shoe options and they all look amazing!
Sole Runner has a number of really nice looking men’s shoes!
DaVinci Barefoot – They have a killer men’s line. My husband has a pair and they are beautiful, but $$$
Carets – Beautiful shoes, very dressy. But again with the $$$
Luks Shoes – Currently the Year Round Boot is the only style made in men’s sizing, but they have some other styles they’ll be adding soon that will be work appropriate.
Joe Nimble – International shoppers only can purchase directly from Joe Nimble. If you are in the US, you can purchase from Joe Nimble from Baer Shoes. They have a good selection of men’s dress shoes.
Belenka‘s shoes are unisex and cut like a traditional dress shoe. Most of the colors/prints aren’t really work appropriate, but if you chose black they’d look great with slacks. They also have winter boots that look dressy.
Hoss Handmade’s black oxford would look great with professional attire.
Magical Shoes has a men’s winter boot that looks professional.
