Dressing a suit down a tad by wearing less-than-formal footwear is very much in vogue, and a great way to let the world know that you take your style seriously, but not yourself. Pulling this off with total steeze, however, isn’t as easy as it sounds. Throwing on your old joggers that travelled 5kms with you that very same morning just won’t fly, and just because you’ve decided to go casual, doesn’t mean considering things like texture and colour should go out the window with your loafers.
This is where Stockholm-based outfitters Beyene come into the fold. Their latest offering, the Felix shoe, is the perfect footwear for when you want to pair the comfort of a sneaker with the semi-formal look of a leather lace-up. Offered up in Ivory, Cognac and Black, the Felix features careful detailing, like hand-stitched logos in the heels and flat waxed laces. Made from nappa leather, they are top-quality and satisfy both form and function in the highest order.
The Beyene Felix are available to purchase from Belancé for $349 AUD.
