Put your best foot forward

You can tell a lot about a person by their footwear. The shoes you choose are as important as the rest of your outfit. They are the proverbial ‘icing on the cake’. So whether you are wearing brogues, boots, sneakers or trainers in leather, suede or fabric. There is a lot to be said the footwear you chose for each outfit.

Research shows that 80% of business executives say shoes are “extremely important” in creating the right impression in the working environment and the same is true for any occasion. You are unlikely to go for a run in a leather souled pair of brogues (unless running for the train) similarly you would probably not attend a wedding in trainers.

That said, your choice of footwear doesn’t have to be boring, after all it is as much an extension of your personality as a tie or pocket square, so think it through as much as the rest of your outfit.

The choice can be daunting however, the options are endless, colours, styles and materials, the world is your oyster. To help resolve this problem, there’s much to be said for adopting your own ‘signature style’, after all you need more than one pair of shoes to complement your wardrobe. Also bear in mind that there is nothing wrong with keeping up with the latest trends, but you need to know what suits you.

Another important point to remember is that your shoes will not look after themselves. Regular cleaning and polishing is essential and should the heal or soul wear out they can easily be replaced.
