Shopping for quality shoes is not easy. It’s sometimes better to just buy something that’s branded and expensive because at least you know that it’s durable and of high quality. But what if you don’t have the money to buy pricey shoes? There are some things to remember to guide you through the process. Always try on the shoes you like first before you decide to buy them. Keep them on your feet and walk around for a few minutes to see how they feel. Be sure that they fit perfectly and you feel comfortable wearing them. Check if the shoes can be returned before buying them.

Purchase from a familiar brand that you’ve worn before when shopping online. This way you already know your accurate size. If you have to choose between leather and synthetic leathers, it’s a no brainer that you have to go with leather. They’re biodegradable and more durable. Always choose quality over quantity. A quality shoe with quality maintenance should last a long time. You shouldn’t worry too much about the cost since quality shoes look better, lasts longer, and are more repairable. Thus, they’re a better long term investment.

As for good dress shoes which men should have at least a pair of, the soles should be stitched not just glued to the bottom of the shoes, at least a quarter of an inch thick, and is made of leather. Also, the lining is made of high quality calfskin or natural leather not synthetic materials. If you want to have stylish and top quality leather shoes, shop at¬†Reef. They have some really beautiful and interesting models to choose from like the Reef Eland. It has premium full grain leather upper with distressed and vintage finishes, leather outsole with rubber enforce strike area, and premium pig skin leather lining. Plus, it’s handcrafted in Brazil.

Another model that’s worth checking out is the Reef Bantu shoe, what with its premium leather full grain upper with distressed and vintage finishes, molded wax texture cushion insole, molded rubber swellular traction out sole, slammed cup sole construction, and EVA compounds for odor management on the insole, among its features. I’m sure I’ll also look good if I wear the Reef Spiniker Mid NB. It has Reef molded rubber swellular traction outsole, removable and washable insole for function and travel, odor management EVA insole, molded wax texture cushion insole, and die cut leather labels inlay on the outsole.
