Men have a good collection of formal shoes that can be worn to weddings, work, formal occasions and as fashion pieces. Formal shoes are a staple for men as you do not know when you’re going to need them, it is always good to have a pair around. We have many different suits and formal wear and we sometimes match our shoes and belt with the different colour suits we are wearing. Blue suits go nice with brown shoes and belt. We have picked the best 7 formal – smart shoes for men that are well made, stylish and fashionable.
