There are a few great options when considering a dress boot, however, try to go for something classic with a great finish, not super high shine, but not too matte either. Also don’t be afraid to incorporate suede into you dress options. Try Lemargo DR21A in black or tan , this is the perfect balance, and style wise, gives you the option of switching between formal and casual with ease whilst still retaining that sense of slickness. Similarly Lemargo GB03A, with its grosgrain trim in contrasting cream, the mushroom suede is the perfect neutral colour that will go with almost every item of clothing in your wardrobe, it looks easily stylish worn with chinos, shirt and blazer as it does with a great pair of denim and simple tee, or light knit. For something a little more contemporary, try Pantenetti 15885 in chocolate, the French Oxford, men's dress boot hybrid will give you that point of difference and set you apart from the crowd.
This is a style also know as a combat boot has been around for a while now, and has become somewhat of a footwear staple. Our favourite option is Lemargo DR02A, which has just been restocked in Black, Cognac, and Teak. This is the boot that gives you the millitary vibe without looking like you just stepped of the army barracks, incredibly versatile, and incredibly comfortable with one of the most flexible sole units in the business. There is not much that you can’t wear this style with. A big trend coming out of Europe at the moment is actually pairing them with shorts. Not for everyone, but it is a very cool look, and given Australia’s climate, very relevant.
