There are a lot of mixed feelings on whether skinny jeans are a great look for guys, but if you are one of those who likes the look, you may want to know what shoes to wear with skinny jeans. While the footwear you pair with these daring denims is really a personal choice, there are some shoes that will complete your look better than others. Here are some ideas on the "do" list.
As long as you think thin when choosing a shoe to go with your skinny jeans, you should come up with a good look. If all else fails, dig up some blue suede shoes. Hey, it worked for Elvis! He was a skinny jeans fan way back in the 50's. Back then, they called them "drainpipe jeans." As they say, everything old is new again!
- Boots. One trend with skinny jeans is wearing them tucked into boots. The jury is out on whether this is a great look for men. The key is to not go too big with the boots so you don't look like a potted plant.
- Athletic Shoes. Brands aren't really as important as the material and style of shoe. Bulky high top shoes will make your feet look big, so go thin and go low. A good example of a good athletic shoe to go with skinny jeans are the low canvas Chuck Taylor line from Converse. These may be on the pricey side, but will give you an idea of what to look for.
- Dress shoes. Just like the casual shoes, thin is in. According to the Wall Street Journal (which surprisingly chimed in on the skinny jeans trend), the best dress shoes to wear with skinny jeans are "pointy-toed dress shoes or dressy boots." Again, the thing to avoid is a chunky shoe that will give you the "clown shoe" look.
