Three Pairs Of Denim Shoes For Men & How To Wear Them


Footwear may be oft-forgotten in the world of denim apparel, but that doesn’t mean denim shoes don’t exist–and that you can’t find them in various iterations. We’ve rounded up three radically different denim kicks for guys and provided the clothes and accessories to pair them with. If you’re worried about how versatile these shoes are, don’t fear denim on denim! Pair white jeans and a chambray shirt with denim slip-ons or dark jeans with black denim sneakers. (Trust us, it looks just as good as cords worn with rugged denim boots.)

1. Button up! Or down. Eat Sleep Denim rounded up a few cute denim pieces for the ladies that feature (mostly) center front buttons to add a bit of youth to your ensemble.

2. Rag & Bone jumps on the neon denim wagon with a pair of bright yellow neon skinny jeans, reminiscent of mustard squeeze bottles at the hot dog shack of your local childhood playground.

3. The latest range of espadrilles from Rivieras incude an easy-to-wear denim shoe that we think will look good with virtually anything.

4. View the new Scotch & Soda Amsterdam Blaw Spring/Summer 2012 video interview and walk-through. Christian Goran changes his clothes several times, talks about why he doesn’t care about being a good surfer, and discusses his love of flying planes (while you view the collection).

5. Dr. Denim with a quick lesson on why jeans fade:

“Here’s a shot of a piece of warp yarn from a piece of denim. What you see here is that the yarn is deep blue on the outside and that it gradually fades towards the center. What happens when you repeatedly dip the yarn in indigo dye is that the cotton absorbs dye stuff but it does not become fully saturated, i.e. indigo blue through the entire yarn, because of the properties of the dye stuff combined with the tight spinning of the yarn. On the surface, you have a thick layer of indigo which is what you see on an unwashed pair of jeans.

So, when you start wearing your jeans, the surface dye stuff will gradually fade away and as you wear through the jeans, lighter blue shades will become visible. Once you wear through the fabric, you’ll see white cotton showing through.” (via Dr. Denim)
