Step back in time when men’s fashion was classically good looking. 1930s style men’s shoes were sleek yet fancy and formal yet casual. The classic oxford of the ’20s expanded to include more two-tone color combinations as well as more brogue (small holes) embellished all over the shoes. These became the staple 1930s dress shoe for men. Black and white, brown and white, brown and tan and grey and black were common color combinations reflecting the Art Deco movement. Naturally solid black and brown cap toe or wingtip oxfords were options too. In summer the all-white oxford was an essential pairing with white or light grey suits.
On the casual side 1930s men’s leather sandals came into existence for days on the beach and rubber sole sport shoes Keds and Converse were worn on weekends. At home, a comfortable pair of loafers were all you needed. For work, a sturdy pair of thick sole lace up boots were strong and durable.
