Men's shoes by Samuel Windsor are handmade using premium leather and suede, so you can be confident of superior comfort and outstanding quality. But how do you choose from these classic shoes?
Best formal shoes
If you want a formal shoe, you can't get better than black Oxford shoes. These sleek, shiny and serious shoes will ensure you make a good impression at weddings, funerals, boardrooms or black tie events. Looking for a leather shoe that's a little more laid back? For a smart but social shoe, brown brogues are unbeatable. Originally, the holes in the upper allowed for drainage as gamekeepers stomped through wet marshland, today the intricate detailing adds texture and style.
Best shoes for each season
Looking for a summer or winter shoe? In warm weather we recommend the ease and comfort of a slip-on shoe. For formal wear, penny loafers look great with a linen suit or for a more casual look boat shoes are perfect when paired with chinos. Cold weather requires a more substantial shoe or even a boot. Chelsea boots in black create a refined and elegant look, or try brown suede Chelsea boots with jeans for a sophisticated yet casual appearance.
Black or brown shoes?
Men's suits and formal wear are dominated by dark colors, which make black shoes the obvious choice for work and ceremonies. Brown shoes do have a less sophisticated reputation, but unfairly we think. A pair of dark brown Oxfords will look magnificent with a royal blue suit or for a lighter look try some brown brogues with a natural tone linen suit. If you're bored of black and brown try a deep and daring Oxblood shoe.
Shoes for relaxing
Suede loafers or deck shoes will help create a relaxed style, but if you want to feel relaxed you need a pair of luxury leather slippers. Our traditional slippers collection is crafted using the finest and softest leather for superior comfort. With a choice of open back mules, sturdy moccasins or classic Albert slippers, we have a house shoe for you.
