  2. Hello Abdulramon, I can relate well to this. Although I am a female, but I happen to have higher feet size. It can be frustrating you know, you will see nice and beautiful shoes or stilletoes only for it to be for lower  feetsize.  I believe the recommendation you gave in your article ca be applied to female shoes as well. I have noticed that when I buy shoes with light materials, it tends to be durable. Thanks for your tips, at least this will also help me in selecting shoes for my husband who happens to have larger feet size as well.

  8. Very interesting topic you have plunged into with this post and I’m actually one of the people with wide feet. Seriously, it can be very annoying when you buy a shoe and only for you to notice that your feet are being compressed because it is wide and not made for the shoe. I’ve actually quit wearing dress shoes and favor the sneakers more to which I have mirrored my dressings to. But getting to read through this post, it made me want to try it all over again and I personally like the slip-ons.

  9. Lack of options made me stick to dockers for a long time; reading your writeup makes me see now that it’s lack of info, not options. Ououvalley doesn’t look bad at all, considering the price. Thanks for putting this together for the wide feet guys, your writeup was awesome and straight to point.


  10. Another great post from you. My husband was looking for a nice black looking shoe, not too sharp at the ends, but medium-sized length at the ends.

    I like the Cestfini Men’s Loader Dres Shoe, it looks perfect! It has a nice toe at the end and he can wear it as casual wear as well which is great. 

    I like him having a shoe that is a one time buy, meaning it’s genuine and can wear it to any occasion.

    Thank you so much, I love your fashion for men website. I’ll always come back to your website when I need to pick out something for my husband.

    All the best.

  11. I’m not a big fan of the Monk-strap style. I prefer the Balmoral or Blucher look. Actually I can’t believe I’m using these terms – until I read this post I didn’t know the names of these different styles. This information will be helpful next time I’m out looking for new dress shoes. It’s good to know what you’re looking for.

    Under the heading “The right size” you indicate looking for a “good quality shoe.” What should I look for to know I’m getting a good quality shoe?

  12. Loving this list Abdulramon,

    I was one of those old schoolers who’s got no love for slip-ons but I got one as a gift so I decided to try it on anyway and I absolutely love it! Sure it doesn’t have the laces but it’s easy to slip in and go for meetings too because some companies have this no shoes rule so we have to respect that. What type of shoe would you say is your favourite?
