1. Invest in quality shoes
Footwear trends for men don’t change radically, Fenton says. “They may get a little pointier, but the shapes only change subtly.” Higher-end shoemakers like Alden or Church’s utilize “Goodyear welt” construction, which enables the shoes to be resoled, Fenton says. Resoling can help shoes last longer than a decade—so while up-front footwear cost might seem high, shoes are still smart style investments. Higher-end shoes are more likely to be available in wide widths. “Right out of the box, they’ll actually fit your feet. And they’re using far better construction methods” that have literally evolved over centuries, Fenton says.
