Men’s Footwear Fashion Redefined By Unze

When it comes to fashion, the least discussed niche remains men’s fashion. Though in past few years fashion sense has radically enhanced in Pakistani men but still majority remains fashion illiterate. The basic rule for selecting what to wear is what actually suits your persona.

When selecting shoes and other footwears men don’t have too many choices. Firstly you have to decide whether you need formal or informal footwear. Some people prefer to have semi-formal or hybrid (can be used as formal as well as informal) as they need to be at formal as well informal events/places in a single day. Unfortunately or fortunately some informal footwear are mistaken as formal, hence can be used as either.

Narrowing the scope of my post to dress shoes, following are the primary types of men’s dress shoes The Oxford Shoe, The Derby Shoe, The Monk Strap, The Loafer, The Dress Boot, The Chelsea Boot & The Opera Pump. The most common types of men’s lace-up are Oxford and Derby, which are confused by most. The key difference between them is that Oxford shoes have closed-throat lacing while Derby shoes have open-throat lacing which makes Oxford shoes look comparatively more formal then Derby shoes.

Selecting a perfect shoe is one of the most difficult and time consuming task for most of us (especially for me). Fortunately I found the exact shoe I needed at Unze which is a UK based brand. The shoe in the picture above is a full brogue Oxford shoe with medallion “wing tip” toe style, named as “Mens ‘Lorenzi’ Brogue Leather Designer Shoes” on Unze’s website, you can order it online. It’s an elegant and durable article, you can comfortably wear these for a full day without tiring your feet.IMG_0155.5_wm

Brogue is mistaken by many as a separate shoe type actually it’s the perforated design on the shoe, greater the brogue less formal the shoe will be. Brogues are not limited to Oxford style; Derby brogues are also much common.  In fact Unze also have amazing designs of brogue Derby dress boots which are best to be worn with jeans.

I really liked their brogue boots but I needed a semi-casual shoe which can be worn to office with jeans as well as formal pants. I needed a shoe casual enough for informal events and meet-ups I have to attend after office, Unze’s “Mens ‘Lorenzi’ Brogue Leather Designer Shoes” formed to be a perfect choice for me. Due to fashion illiteracy most of the people consider these two toned full brogue Oxford shoes formal, which make them more acceptable in all situations. If we talk about fashion etiquette it has even become acceptable to wear black quarter brogues as part of business attire. More heavily brogued shoes (especially brown) tend to go better with jeans, it’s best to avoid the dual-toned look for the office.

I am much sensitive about the comfort of the footwear which forms the primary consideration while selecting a shoe for me. This shoe is a perfect blend of style, comfort and quality. Unze is selling selected articles on discount, this article is also available on their website at 50% discount. If you are thinking to buy one, do it before they become short of sizes. It is almost impossible to find such quality at such low rate.

    Well the review is amazing but I reckon it could be difficult to import these shoes here in my country because I don’t think so that Unze is delivering internationally !!! I would love to have these articles should they deliver it to my home. I am already tired of wearing Ambassador which is considered top tier brand of a local shoemaker giant.

    It is commonly said In Punjabi “gaddii taaeraa tou (a car known by its tyres) tte buddi paeraa tou manni jandi ay ( female by her feet)”
    Seriously speaking I have only heard it from my colleague and have no idea regarding it. But a mans’ neatness can be seen on his shoes.
    I personally look at man’s feet first, as choice of shoes with the dress should be perfect.

    If the shoe fits, it’s too expensive. A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you’re going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.
    Shoes are very important in the world of fashion. Without shoes, the style looks unfinished. Good Shoes bring more stylish look. We are one of those people who believe in “Good Shoes take you to good places”.
    Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live. The difference between style and fashion is Quality.
    Finding love is like finding shoes. People go after the good looking ones, but they end up choosing the one they feel comfortable with.
    Shoes bring out the best in you.
