In most stores selling classic men’s shoes nowadays, the formal options have been more and more replaced by more casual models, sneakers, light loafers and so on. That’s why it’s nice to visit some shoe stores in the London business districts where still various black oxfords and other more formal footwear are in clear majority on the shelves.
In for example Loake and Cheaney’s stores in London’s the City area, the financial district and business centre of the capital of England, it’s still evident that many men wears proper dress shoes day in and day out. It’s nice to see, I have to say, in this age of more and more informal footwear taking over. Here, you may find a couple of sneakers models in a bottom shelf, but the dress shoes definitely still reign.
