Two Tone Shoes

Class is a way of life, and the right pair of footwear will take you a long way. If you’d like to pull off a bold pair of dapper footgear and garner compliments wherever you go, two-tone shoes are a steady place to start. While people stick to normal boots and neutral-toned gear, try out a new pair of men’s alternative shoes that will turn a rather basic look effortless. Men’s two-tone leather gear has an alluring effect on anyone who wears them, they give you a stylish look that is much needed. Put your best foot forward and join in this retro-style trend that is picking up by the day. 

So what are these types of dress shoes? Glad you asked. They are footwear with two contrasting colors on it, just as the name suggests. Also known as spectator shoes in some cases, they are mostly identified in brogues and oxfords. While oxfords are types of men’s dress shoes with a closed lacing system, brogues are identified with their decorative perforations. When you are in the market for a fresh pair and wondering what to go for, keep the perforations in mind and choose contrasting-colored gear, like two-tone designer pieces.

You might have seen this stylish gear on Leonardo DiCaprio when he was playing the literary legend, Jay Gatsby. The history of men’s two-tone dress shoes started with John Lobb, a famous English bootmaker, who was believed to have made the first pair as a cricket shoe back in 1868. At that time, they were also known as co-respondent shoes because people associated them with the corresponding colors of the footwear, simply as black and white. Today, spectator footwear comes in a variety of color combinations, worn by vintage lovers and swing dancers who would like to relive the era. They are a perfect fit for anyone desiring a style challenge and appreciates the timeless silhouette of cap-toe boots for men or a pair of brogue shoes.

Formalists would like to limit the spectator shoes’ contrasting colors to black and white or brown and white and insist upon all-leather materials. Nonetheless, manufacturers are being more creative, and you can find different variations, from black and beige, navy blue and grey, or light brown and black. The options are now endless, and you can find the two-tone color gear that suits your style. If you are wondering how to buy a sturdy pair in other aspects than the color combination, here are a few pointers to consider.
