Men's Health (South Africa) - - STYLE -

To take denim to the next level, you need to be well shod. Use these style strate­gies to make your jeans com­pat­i­ble with any kind of footwear.

Dress Shoes

Slim, dark jeans work best with brogues but aren’t meant to fit like suit pants. Your jeans should rest on top of your shoes, but if you have ex­tra length, a 1-inch cuff is fine.


When wear­ing loafers or lace less sneak­ers, you want a slim pair of jeans that ends just be­low your an­kle. One or two halfinch cuffs will look ca­sual with­out seem­ing sloppy.

Ca­sual Boots

Straight-leg jeans are too wide for low-pro­file shoes. Go with ca­sual boots. You can roll up the cuffs, but stack­ing the jeans on your shoes will look more rugged.


Tall sneak­ers or chukka boots should be worn with a slim-straight jean – they won’t hide them. Let the pant legs sit on top of your an­kles or roll them for ca­sual flair.
