Types Of Leather Shoes
Fashion trends changed over time according to the choice of the person. Similarly, Shoe trends also change over time and vary according to the taste and fashion of peoples.
There are many types of Leather shoes for Men’s and Women’s.some people decide shoe types by their leather material and some describe it by occasion. Here we are sharing the most common types of Leather shoes.
Letting you decide which is used for Formal or sports or Dating etc….
1) Oxford Shoes
An Oxford shoe is characterized by shoelace eyelets tabs that are attached under the vamp a feature termed “closed lacing”.
Oxfords were plain, formal shoes, made of leather, but they evolved into a range of styles suitable for formal, uniform, or casual wear. Based on function and the dictates of fashion, Oxfords are now made from a variety of materials, including calf leather, faux and genuine patent leather, suede, and canvas.
2) Derbys Shoes
These shoes are also similar to Oxford shoes and also called formal, dress or office shoes.
A derby is a style of boot or shoe characterized by quarters with shoelace eyelets that are sewn on top of the vamp. This construction method, also known as “open lacing”, contrasts with that of the Oxford.
3) Lofars Shoes
The term loafer is used for any type of shoe which does not have any kind of lacing or fastening system
A less casual, earlier type of slip-on is made with side gussets (sometimes called a dress loafer). Made in the same shape as lace-up Oxfords, but lacking the laces, these shoes have elasticated inserts on the side which allow the shoe to be easily removed but remain snug when worn.
4) Work Boots
work boots are the boots which provide protection to foot as well as ankles or sometimes lower legs.
Different companies have different types of work boots like e rigger boots, dress boots, Chelsea boots, fashion boots, cowboy boots, mukluks, etc.
5) Brogues Shoes
Brogues are probably some of the most versatile shoes in fashion. I would actually make the case they are the most versatile if the occasion called for it.
Brogues were originally designed for tramping through wet fields, and the punched holes allowed the water to drain, hence they were ‘weekend’ wear, or ‘not in town’
So brogues are far less formal than plain toecaps, and brown is far less formal than black.
A Monk-straps shoe is a style of shoe with no lacing, closed by a buckle and strap. It is also known as a monk strap, and has been described as the “most advanced” dress shoe.
7) Ballet shoes
A ballet shoe, or ballet slipper, is a lightweight shoe designed specifically for ballet dancing. It may be made from soft leather, canvas, or satin, and has flexible, thin soles.
Sandals are an open type of footwear, consisting of a sole held to the wearer’s foot by straps going over the instep and, sometimes, around the ankle. Sandals can also have a heel.
9) Backless Heel sandal
They are very comfortable to be worn. They usually work as casual shoes but can also be worn in a professional work environment. This shoe is usually meant for woman, however some mules are also designed for a man.
We can divide the heels into the following categories.
Low Heels – The upper limit for heels of these shoes is 3 inches.
Medium Heels – Shoes with heels ranging from three to five inches are categorized under medium heels
High heels – These are shoes with high heel which is tapered and narrow. The heel is known as spike heel too. These are usually above five inches are recommended for an elegant look.
