Black shoes

December 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’ve actually been thinking about black shoes a lot lately.

I don’t actually own a pair of black dress shoes and it wasn’t until recently that i didn’t own a pair of black sneakers. I always find it really hard to choose black shoes. Choose! Shoes! That rhymed! Anyway, I always feel that you have to be really picky about black dress shoes. They have to look good with a suit, but also work with jeans. Not too shinny or pointy. It’s a mess. And with sneakers i just need them to have a little bit of white or other color in it.

Here are a few black shoes that I really like but won’t know if i love them until i try them on.

– Christian Loubutin Metal Toe Cap lace ups

Although i love these. There a little too flashy.

–  Dainite Sole Gibson by Inventory & Mark McNairy

As awesome as it looks, with the beige sole, i feel like these would only work for jeans.

Now, THESE are perfect. I would totally rock these if they weren’t so expensive. They are beautiful and I’m sure that they’d work well with pretty much anything. They’re Maison Martin Margiela and are called the Paint oxford.

Now, i always end up going to Zara to get my shoes but whenever i try them on i just don’t like them. Here are a few black shoes that i haven’t tried on yet and i like. All of them are nice, but who knows how they look on my feet or with jeans or a nice pant?

Like i said, when it comes to sneakers, it helps if the shoe isn’t ALL black. I already found some pretty awesome Switchback Vans, but these Converse in collaboration with Vanquish are pretty dope.

i know people love the Loubutin spikes, but until now i actually hadn’t found a pair of shoes with them that i liked. These slip ons are actually pretty cool, they look comfortable and would take your rocker look to a whole new level. Can someone get them for me?

Now these i don’t know where to put. They are kinda casual, kinda dressy. It’s one of the latest trends in mens shoes, the wedge. These are by British remains. I’m not sure if i’d wear them, but at least i’d look taller!

Any other nice black shoes? Let me know guys 😀

PS these are the only black “dress” shoes i have and the vans i bought the other day.
