Shoes To Wear With Skinny Jeans In Cold Weather

Best Shoes to Buy Right Now

Have you ever heard someone talk about a “pants-to-shoe ratio?” While this expression specifically speaks to the way your pants hang against your ankle upon first glance, shoes play a huge part in scoring high here. They might be the single-handed, most important part of any first style impression. You can be dressed in a simple jeans and tee, but your footwear will absolutely make or break any outfit.

Now that we’ve put a ton of pressure on you to choose the right shoes (sorry), we’re also here to relieve it! While it’s cool to have an extensive sneaker closet, we recommend starting with modern closet essentials that can mix and be matched with any wardrobe. Each pair on this list is worthy of becoming your go-to kicks for the occasion. We are giving you multiple options for each category so you can choose one tailored to your taste and budget. With these 11 shoes in your closet arsenal, you’ll be ready to take on the world!  Even in 2020.

The Sandal

We’re kicking off the list with a category many men are pretty skeptical of. As we like to call it, “the mandal,” these shoes are undoubtedly an essential item during the summer months because who wants to be sweaty in socks in 95-degree weather, am I right?! Take note, as many internet forums suggest, we are not including the flip flop in this category. Feel free to wear the thong slipper as you please, but why choose flip flops when you can dress in more stylish and supportive sandals below?

Birkenstock Arizona Birko-Flor

Birkenstock Arizona Birko-Flor

Once known to be the stereotypical footwear of choice for granola-eating, tree-hugging hippies (hey, we’re here for it!), this sandal has now evolved to become a closet essential for the most fashion-forward of men. We’re happy to live in the middle and advocate for the Arizona Birkenstocks as a stylish upgrade to the pool-slide, offering a better-for-you arched footbed and a more durable lifespan. Note, they might feel a bit off at first, but the more you wear them, the more accustomed they become to your own two feet.

Apl Men’s Big Logo TechLoom Slide

Apl Men’s Big Logo TechLoom Slide

One of the easiest sandals to slip on, these Apl slides are perfect for the pool, beach, and beyond. The best part isn’t how lightweight and packable they are, but the fact that they’re made with a flexible strap and molded footbed with every step. They mirror the comfort of the infamous Apl running shoe but are a much breezier option.

The Driving Shoe

Ah, a classic Italian staple: the driving shoe. With the rise of automobile ‘driving culture’ in the 1960s, this moccasin/dress shoe hybrid derived from the demand for a comfortable option to wear on the road. It became a status symbol of the rich, for those who had a nice car to drive, who also had exclusive shoes to wear while driving it.

Driving shoes are typically made of soft Italian leather with rubber nubs or pads covering the soles. This construction allows for durability and comfort with a distinctive traction for stability while driving. Nowadays, sure they can be worn for driving but they also serve as a great slip-on shoe for around the house and casual outings. The driver has become a staple of well-dressed men for decades.

To make buying discount shoes online easy and stress-free, here are the best places to look.

1. Amazon

Amazon makes the top of the list because it has reasonable prices on everything. If you’re one of the more than 90 million Amazon Prime members in the U.S., you’ll enjoy free two-day shipping, too.

It gives you plenty of time to try on the footwear in the comfort of your own home, and return them for free if you don’t love your shoes.

Probably the best thing about Zappos is you never pay for shipping, even on returns.

Some of my favorite finds are from second hand stores. One of my favorite places to find amazing deals on gently used shoes is Poshmark.

Poshmark offers higher-end designer clothes, accessories and even shoes. Trust me, there is treasure on this site. Especially when a new pair of shoes at a fraction of the cost can be found.

Another bonus feature with Poshmark is you can find a seller that has the same size shoe as you and follow them. I met a clothing line retail manager once who told me she wore something new everyday. Here gently used clothes are sold on her Poshmark page.

Pros:

Just note that the time period when you can add on an additional order for free shipping is limited. If you wait too long, you’ll have to pay to ship your purchase.

Tips Before you Buy Shoes Online

When you shop for shoes online, you’ll quickly realize how much lower the prices are, compared to local stores.

Even though you can’t try the shoes on first, buying shoes online is a pleasant experience for many consumers.

“It is the only way that I’ve bought my shoes over the past 15 years,” says Carol Gee, an author in Atlanta. She looks for sales that are at least 35% off the regular price. “That is when I pounce if I see something I have to have,” she says.

To have more confidence when buying shoes from home, here are the best tips:

Shipping – If you can score free shipping and a great shoe price, that’s the ultimate combination. But some stores will give you free shipping only when you hit a minimum purchasing requirement.

Make sure you know the shipping costs before spending too much time browsing the site.

Returns – Your life is busy and sometimes it’s tough to meet a 30-day return window if you don’t like the shoes you ordered. Look for a store that offers you at least 60 days to save yourself some stress.

Pricing deals – Comparing prices from different sites is easy when you’re shopping online. And there are tons of options for discount, clearance and coupon savings, especially if you sign up for the company’s email newsletter. Save even more by using a coupon app.https://64f9cdf444b59d0a64d1a26509b2a0d0.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Search options –A deep discount isn’t any good if you can’t find the shoe you want. Being able to filter by price, style, brand, size, width, heel height, color and more will help you find your perfect shoe faster.

Images – Since you can’t physically hold the shoe in your hand, find a retailer that has large enough images to see the details. Having multiple pictures from different angles and a zoom-in option can help you decide if you like the shoe or not.

Don’t wait to try them on – When you get the shoes, try them on right away without removing any of the labels. Even though some stores offer generous return policies — Zappos gives you 365 days! — if you miss the window to return the shoes, you may not get a full refund.

Test them indoors – Before removing the labels or price tag, spend some time wearing your shoes inside. If you wear them outside, you risk damaging them, and that makes it impossible to return. Remember to walk around carefully, so you don’t accidentally remove the labels.

Sell older shoes once you’ve used them – You’ve bought a great shoe, worn it for a while, and then feel it’s time to get rid of it so you can make room for a newer style. You don’t have to throw the shoes away. Try selling your used shoes, either online or in person.

Summary

Buying shoes online is a quick and easy way to save big. Amazon is probably the go-to choice because it has a huge variety of items for sale, but the best overall for online shoe shopping I have experienced is Zappos.

With Zappos, you get free shipping on a fantastic selection of discount shoes, with lots of images and information about the shoes. Plus, the return shipping is free and you have 365 days to return your shoes if you decide they’re not a good fit.

Really, you can’t go wrong shopping at any of these stores. They all offer super discounts and have brand names and styles that fit every budget.
