Though they started as flimsy “plimsolls” built and designed for athletes, sneakers have become a staple in every man's wardrobe. In fact, they’re a favourite for men’s casual shoes in Australia. Perfect for your Fridays in the office or your weekends on the go, sneakers work well with denim, chinos and shorts of pretty much any colour and shade. Don't compromise comfort for style, switch out your dressier shoes for sneakers and add dark tones like a leather jacket to keep your look feeling more like an evening ensemble. With the cooler seasons approaching, pair your sneakers with a comfy shirt and jeans or chinos for the perfect casual look.
There is so much to love about boots. If you want something that stands out but will go with a whole bunch of outfits then a pair of boots is something to invest in. Not only are they are durable, but they are also the perfect staple for your winter wardrobe providing style and full comfort. They can be matched with smart casual and semi-formal ensembles or stylish pair of pants or jeans that cuff over the ankles. On the weekend, you can even pair your boots with a button-up shirt or sweater for a casual look. With the cool weather starting to creep up, boots are the ultimate favourite men’s casual shoes in Australia.
For many, the idea of driving shoes is to be comfortable and casual. It is a versatile shoe that is playful, different and essential for your wardrobe. Great for the ideal brunch date or a casual weekend with friends, slim jeans or cropped chinos are the perfect partners for such shoes and are the classic fit for a smart casual look. Skip the socks in the summer season or wear a pair of ‘no show socks’ to ensure comfort yet keep the ankles flashing to emulate the casual vibe that the driving shoe offers.
