Quality Must Be Priority!

First of all, whether you are a groom, best man or guest, you must take the quality of a shoe as the first requirement of your choice. After all, there is nothing more frustrating than attending a special event and not being able to walk smoothly. 

At this point, a good tip is not to cling only to the value of the footwear, but also to take into account its cost-benefit. That's why bet on Sandro Moscoloni's leather footwear options, preferably those with subtle seams, without a very striking finish on the surface to facilitate their combinations.

In addition, it is very important to observe the sole of the model. Shoes with rubber soles are lighter, more flexible and absorb impact more easily.

Don't ignore the color of men's shoes

There is a basic rule that can help a lot when choosing shoes: groom, groomsmen and guests should wear shoes that harmonize with the tone of their outfits.For example, if you chose a navy blue suit for the event, the best alternative is to opt for shoes that are also dark, such as a black version.

On the other hand, if you choose a lighter look, composed of earthy tones, the most recommended models are brown, to help maintain a balanced color palette.

To avoid making mistakes in combinations, avoid white or colored shoes. Reserve these models for more informal occasions where the dress code is of their own accord.

Analyze the event location

The location where the ceremony will be held is a decisive factor in choosing the ideal footwear.

Generally, classic and formal weddings take place in ballrooms or refined spaces. In these cases, it is best to prioritize leather models with a classic design, such as a Derby or Oxford.

But, considering that, nowadays, many couples prefer to organize their parties in open places such as beaches and fields, it is necessary to find shoes that match the environments and present a more informal proposal. In these situations, loafers and docksides are often good choices.
