Wherever you work, here’s our top 5 black styles

Earlier this month we posted our best Autumn/Winter work wear shoes for women. In success of our previous post we have created another one for all the hardworking men!

Selecting our top 5 favourite Autumn/Winter black styles for work, we have highlighted their best features and why we love them!

G-Star Myrow

G-Star Myrow

 

The Myrow G-star boots are one of a kind with their leather material, rubber sole and thick laces for a sturdy look.  The military style boots are perfect to team up with ankle grazer jeans. We love the clean cut smooth leather front making them wearable with smart trousers too!

Ted Baker Torsdi 4

ted-baker-torsdiThere are many reasons why we love this fabulous British Brand, one of them being their elegant shoes. The grainy leather on the Torsdi is perfect for a casual or smart look. The 2 eyelet lace-up makes it easy for quick fastening. These would look great with a pair of smart jeans and shirt but you can always be more creative.

Chippewa 1901M31

Don’t be put off by their strong aggressive look; these Chippewa boots have an amazing feature. Their Goodyear welt construction allows them to be re-soled which extends the life of the boots. The Wisconsin brand provides high quality shoes for all purposes. They are definitely one for our rainy London. Made with the finest materials these are definitely a Scorpion favourite.

H by Hudson Olave

hudson_olave_blk_5These Hudson brogues are a reflection of gentlemen class. Our favourite feature of the Olave shoe is the traditional pattern around the front and sides. The shoes feature lace-up fastening with a rubber sole. These are flawless and sophisticated smart shoes!

Reebok Workout Plus

For a more casual work look we love these classic-look Reebok trainers. Boasting comfort and a lace-up fastening these trainers are also great for a weekend look with jeans and a t-shirt.

 

The styles we have chosen are versatile in the way that they can be worn for both work and other commitments. Have a date night? The Ted Baker Torsdi 4 will make you the most handsome man in the room. Need to run errands? The Reebok Workout Plus will boost your performance.

The best characteristic on the styles we have chosen is that you can make use of them in a variety events and occasions.

Sneakers at the mosque by Toufic Beyhum

Photographer Toufic Beyhum returns to Brixton to capture the footwear fans kicking
back at Friday prayers.

Just inside the entrance of Brixton masjid is an undiscovered sneakerhead’s paradise:
racks and racks of the latest adidas and Nikes where worshippers leave their shoes before
entering the sacred space. It’s here that photographer Toufic Beyhum has been
documenting footwear fans at Friday prayers for a year, in a series that debuted on Dazed.
Beyhum’s project caused a stir in the Muslim community – after the images found
their way around the mosque, he had people coming up to him saying how much
they loved them (the imam even declared himself a fan).

NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE ONE

940x496q80

Since its on-court debut in 1997, the Air Foamposite One has turned heads
while steadily evolving into a staple of lifestyle footwear.
The design’s revolutionary one-piece upper marked a dramatic shift
in material choice and aesthetic direction. Early designs of the Foamposite showcased primarily solid
color-blocking though recent renditions have featured stand-out graphic prints.
But the latest design takes it back to the basics – and back to Orlando.

Inspired by the man who first popularized the sneaker, the new Air Foamposite One
is suited in a formal colorway this time around. A black Posite upper has been complimented
with premium white leather and a translucent ice outsole.
Checkerboard detailing is found on the carbon fiber shank for midfoot support and an
additional touch of ‘90s styling.
