2018 is in full swing and that means a whole new year for stylish shoes and amazing fashion. 2017 in itself was an interesting year, particularly for men’s shoes and 2018 is gearing up to be another exciting year.
To truly get in on all the things 2018 has to offer, there are a few must-haves for every man’s closet. The New Year often comes with a switch-up of style and here are our recommendations for a stylish 2018.
The Oxford shoe: This suave number is a legend in its own right. A favorite at boardrooms and dinner parties, it is the ultimate accessory to embrace your more stylish side. It’s recommended to have a pair or two for everyday office use, but also a pair for more special occasions. There’s a reason this shoe has been a symbol of style and elegance for decades.
Needless to say, it is a must-have for every man this year.
Sneakers: Sneakers have quickly become a go-to shoe for pretty much everyone. The beautiful thing about them is that they can be an everyday casual footwear and can also be an edgy statement. Whether going out casually or making a bold statement, sneakers need to be a part of your closet this year.
Plus there’s so much variety to them. They come in every color, material, and design under the sun and thus are very versatile. They can be cheeky, playful and even serious if done right.
Sandals: Sandals can easily be described as the laid-back man’s lifesaver. They are those footwears that come to the rescue when you’re being super casual, have nothing to do or just want to lay low. To be honest, sandals are a stylish step above being barefoot. Between the harmattan season, beach outings, casual strolls down the street and whatnot, sandals will definitely be needed in 2018.
Boots: Back in 2017, boots really had their moment. While they’ve been a staple footwear in the West, they saw a surge in popularity here in Nigeria and it keeps on rising. While a pair of boots might have seen somewhat out of place a few years ago, we’ve learned how to style them with our Nigerian attire and have fully embraced the boot.
Loafers: Ever since their 2014 shoutout in Jidenna’s ‘Yoga’ collaboration with Janelle Monae, loafers have become the lounge she of the stylish. They are the balance between serious, stylish and simple. For all you lounging needs this year, loafers are a must-have.
