Dress Shoes - Tops Pairs for Men
The dress shoe more often than not is laced, and is made with style
presiding over comfort. Although, as comfort becomes
more of a priority for many wearers, so too does the classification of 'dress'
and 'casual' continue to fuse together.
An advantage of the dress shoe is that they have the potential
of offering long term durability.
Given a stitched sole, it has higher chances of future replacement in the years
ahead whereas the cobbler or repair person often cannot do this when faced with more causal designs that
rely on moldings or adhesives.
On the flipside however is the fact that many dress shoes do not provide an
effective means of moisture management and hence trap both foot odor and
moisture. Though some dress models evacuate better than others and this might be
criteria for selection based on personal experience.
