30 Ornate Male Shoes

From Studded Loafers to Multi-Hued Brogues

— December 7, 2011 — Fashion
Formal footwear is in a league of its own, with labels like YSL and Louis Vuitton producing a never-ending supply of ornate male shoes. With the holidays steady approaching, a posh pair of wingtips will be needed for formal office parties and family gatherings.

A nice pair of shiny black leather penny loafers are the centerpiece of any self-respecting modern man. However, penny loafers don't always get chosen first when dressing for a formal occasion. In fact, plain black loafers are (unfortunately) on their way out. Ushering in a new age of formal footwear are major labels like Gucci and Maison Martin Margiela, who infuse footwear with extravagant materials and eccentric designs.

To support this claim, ornate male shoes including the spike-studded loafers recently released by Christian Louboutin or the tri-colored brogues by Prada signal experimentation and exorbitant designs in the coming seasons.
