like Denard BallardSalute!Now, like it or not, fair or not.
that people do judge you by your shoes, and I'm not just talking the ladiesI'm talking about on job interviews and you're work environment.
But this is not a one size fit all discussion.
Different jobs call for different shoesSo what shoes are best for your job? Don't worry about it.
On today's videoI'm gonna give you six of the best shoes that you can wear at a variety of job situations.
so without further adoLet's jump right into itNow first up on our list of shoes is the wonder grab when you try to walk that middle groundWhen your office isn't too stuffy or too casual.
I'm talking about a loafer.
The reason why a loafer works, it'sDressy enough that you don't look like you're lounging around, but it's not too stuffy like you in the boardroom.
A loafer goes with trousers,Jeans, chinos, even a suit here in there.
so if you're working in an environmentThat's not too stuffy.
Not too dressy, and you want to walk that fine linedon't hesitate to grab aloafer.
However on the other hand, if you do find yourself in a super formal stuffy type environment the shoe to grab is anOxford.
So, what is an Oxford? An Oxford is a dress shoe with a specificCharacteristic.
That being that the shoelace eyelets are under the vamp.
The vamp being here.
That's calledclosed lacing.
Closed lacing suggests more formal environments.
So what would you wear an Oxford with? mostly formal attire such as a suit, maybe trousers.
Anything less formal than that it doesn't workYou're gonna be too casual so if you're somewhere in a boardroom, Wall Street, or anywhere they require formal dressDress shoe to grab/work shoe to grab is that Oxford.
However, what are you working a work environment?That's formal,But not too formal where an Oxford wouldn't work.
You want to go one level of dressing this down and grab was calleda Derby.
So what's the difference between an Oxford and a derby? Well Oxford like I said has closed lacingThat's the eyelets being under the vamp.
A derby the opposite of thatOpen lacing the shoelace eyelets will be on top of the vamp.
That's the difference.
the open lacing makes the shoe a little less formal.
so if you're working in anEnvironment where you have to be dressyBut you don't want to go all the way grab a derby.
what can you wear a derby with? Suit, trousers,Jeans, even chinos.
So if you have a formalBut not too formal work environment reachFor a derby.
Now the next shoe on our list is for the guys that working on the more fashion forward evenRebellious or edgy type work environment, that would be the monk strap shoeIf you have been watching this channel for any amount of time.
You know how much I love a monk strap.
There's a couple reasonsWhy.
One, it's a little less formal than an Oxford, but slightly more formal than a DerbyBut it's super versatile what can you wear it with? Suits,Trousers, jeans, chinos.
It's that versatile.
goes with pretty much anything but to me has a little bit of an edge and a sex appealSomething want to rock in a fashion-forward environment.
so if you're looking for a shoeThat's while its dressy still give you a little rebellious edge.
I would go for a single or double monk strap shoeWhat if you are working in a work environment though, although it's rebellious are fashion-forwardDo you like to rock boots the shoe I suggest for you a good old Chelsea boot.
Now a Chelsea boot super sexyRock-and-roll edgy so make sure to working environment you're in fits those requirementsAnd if you're going for a more dressy style Chelsea boot go with the dark color or leatherOn the other hand you want something a little more casual go in a lighter color or perhaps suedeBut if you're looking for a boot that looks dressed up enough, but gives you a little rebellion and edgeDon't hesitate to grab a Chelsea boot.
lastBut not least I've got the shoe for the guy that works in the most casual environmentsBut still doesn't want to look sloppy or not put together you want to grab a minimal low-cutsneaker.
for example one of my favorites, the Adidas Stan Smith.
Now why you want to go with a low-cut as opposed to a high topHigh tops a little more bulky a little less stylish and maybe too casualHowever a low-cut minimalist sneaker very fashion-forward, stylish, but not too loudWhat would you wear it with I'll go with jeans, chinos,I even rock it with an odd suit here and there.
so if you work in a relaxed casual environmentBut you don't want to look sloppy and still want to be put together go for a low-cutminimalist sneaker.
OkaySo there you have it, my suggestions on what type of shoes to wearDepending on what type of work environment you work in let me know in the comment sectionWhat shoes you rock on the job.
