In this wild menswear era, sneakers work with everything, yes. But when a formal occasion rolls in, nothing will show the world the gentleman that you are as a pair of neat dress shoes. The right pair will elevate your slick suits and will outlast the hype that surrounds most sneakers these days. What’s even better is that brands now have a plethora of options in colours and fabrics to choose from. Never before have dress shoes been more fun. Here, we have rounded-up the 15 pairs of formal shoes for men that will take you from work to bar in style:
