Men's shoes for any occasion and budget
Of course, having a new pair of shoes from Sears is only a part of men's fashion. Knowing what to wear with your shoes and how to keep the shoes in top shape is important. No matter what type of shoes you have, from Skechers and Asics to play sports or jog to Timberland steel-toe work boots, dirt is the enemy. Use a nylon brush to keep dirt off your shoes. With dress shoes, it's vital to regularly polish your shoes. There are many shoe polish products from Sears to choose from, so make sure the polish matches the color of your shoe. Make sure to also invest in a shoe horn for your dress shoes. If not, you crease the heel every time you force your foot into the shoe. This gradually shortens the life of your shoes.
Now that you know how to properly maintain your men's shoes from Sears, there's a larger question out there: What will you wear with your shoes? Particularly in more formal settings, the wrong shoe color will stand out and be noticed by others. When it comes to belts - and if you have loops in your pants then you should be wearing a belt - there is an established color guide to follow. Let your Sears belts match the color of your shoes as much as possible. Black dress shoes take black belts and brown, tan or off-brown belts take belts of a matching or blending color, although the color doesn't have to match precisely. As for the size of the belt, the general fashion mandate is that a slimmer belt works best at a more formal event, while thicker belts are more common in casual settings and with jeans.
There is divided opinion within the fashion industry whether the color of your shoes should also match, or at least blend, with the color of your pants. If you work in an office environment or are heading to a formal event where you want to make sure you aren't noticed for the wrong reasons, then choose pants that match your shoes. For more casual events, take a chance on wilder color options if that fits your personality.
Remember that buying men's shoes from Sears is just one step - so to speak - in the dressing process. Decide before you pick out your outfit whether your shoes should match the rest of what you're wearing. No matter what you decide, keep your shoes clean, free of dirt and polished at all times.
