FOOTWEAR

Shoe styles that will al­ways be in vogue

India Today - - CONTENTS - ANAND AHUJA

A cre­ative ex­pres­sion for the cu­ri­ous, the rene­gade, the no­mad and the ur­ban hip, footwear fetish is as much about pas­sion as it is about fash­ion. From exquisitely crafted be­spoke brogues to the lat­est tech­nolo­gies in sport per­for­mance sneak­ers, shoes are rel­e­vant in ev­ery­one’s lives. For some, work­out means min­i­mal and work wear means fash­ion; for oth­ers it could be the op­po­site. There are no rights and wrongs ; it caters to all and ac­cepts all.

Dress Wear

Dark Brown Brogues Es­sen­tial for any man's wardrobe; I per­son­ally like Paul Smith

Black Boots Not too high, nor too low, they are great to wear with denim and even with more wear, some even with the right suit.

Chukka Boots A cou­ple of colour op­tions; I have them in dark brown and in a light camel as well.

Loafers Tod’s are pop­u­lar, but quite a few brands of­fer var­ied colour op­tions, but hav­ing a brown or a black makes it easy to pair with al­most any­thing.

Ca­sual Shoes

Nike Air Max The most pop­u­lar are the 1's and 90's. The 95's and 97's are per­sonal favourites. Then there’s the new­est, Nike Va­por­max; what­ever you pick, there’s only right and righter. Adi­das NMD Get one with a primeknit up­per ; quite pos­si­bly the most com­fort­able ca­sual shoe you will ever wear. Ree­bok Clas­sic and/or Work­out It’s just a great look­ing throw­back shoe and su­per easy to wear.

Nike In­neva Wovens My favourite ca­su­als; get them in a ba­sic colour like black or navy and they just look su­per fresh and pre­mium all the time.

Work­out

Sport Shoe What­ever sport you play, you need a spe­cific shoe so pick well and you’ll feel good wear­ing it. Work­out shoe Keep it min­i­mal, par­tic­u­larly while lift­ing weights

Run­ning Shoe Get a spe­cific shoe even if you run once ev­ery two weeks. Cross Train­ers This is sort of a travel work­out shoe; the Nike Huarache was orig­i­nally made ex­actly for this.
