Best professional shoe brands for men

Is there anything better than landing your dream job?

Well OK… maybe there are some things better than the moment you finally ascend another rung on the corporate ladder, but that list of things is short. It’s a pretty big deal when you start moving into this territory.

Congratulations, well played.

If you’re like many young professionals in today’s economy, you might find yourself well out of school and yet not having spent much time in an office environment.

What I’m getting at here, is that your new job might be above your wardrobe’s current pay grade.

A lot of offices nowadays have a more relaxed idea of business casual.

These days it is not out of the ordinary at all to see jeans and button downs, or dressier pants with more casual polos at work. You might even see these things interspersed with more traditional suits.

It seems that men are starting to claim their own style a bit, busting out of the business suit routine and applying some style to their everyday look. We really applaud that.

One thing that doesn’t change much at all, however, is the necessity for a really great shoe wardrobe.

High end shoes are always impressive, always in style, and move within a wide range of looks, from the more traditional to contemporary, with ease.

It always makes good sense to invest in good shoes.

So here we’ve assembled a list of some of the best high end shoe brands for men.

This is by no means an exhaustive list, there are so many great shoe companies that it’s just too hard to name them all, not to mention the great designs within brands that are not as well known for their status symbol appeal.

Our shoes are multitaskers. They move us from point A to point B. They hint at where we’ve been in life, and also where we’re going.

They give a window into a person’s sense of style and personality. They protect our feet, and showcase them too.

Yes, it’s safe to say we love shoes!

So without further ado, here are some of our faves.
