1. Sleek & Sophisticated
These are your go-to leather lace-up dress shoes. Although we normally think of dress shoes in a formal manner, they don’t always have to be paired as such. Perfect or a day at the office or date night, a pair of black lace-ups or a Chelsea Boot can go with jeans, a suit or anything you want to add swag too.
Man of Many recommends Salvatore Ferragamo – Fedele Oxford, To Boot New York – Winston Oxford or Church’s – Ely Chelsea Boot.
Price: recommendations from $395
2. Training Day
Dripping in sweat isn’t the only way to look like you’re coming from the gym. A nice pair of Trainers can do the trick, just fine. Go athletic with your style and keep it casual with some sweats and a hoodie. Working out is optional.
Man of Many recommends Nike – Flyknit Lunar2, Saucony – Shadow 5000 or Nike – Air Zoom Wildhorse 2.
Price: recommendations from $80
3. Casually Kickin’ It
