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

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.
