Originally popularized in English preparatory schools in the late 1800’s, dress lace-ups such as derbies and oxfords are the most popular dress shoe style for men. The reason? They’re versatile and timeless. A classic pair of lace-ups will outlast everything else in your wardrobe, making them a sound investment for any man.

Wear them from the boardroom straight into date night and repeat all year long. For a sophisticated everyday look, match your belt to your lace-ups and finish off with a crisp button-up and selvedge denim.
