Four Footwear Staples

You don't need a closet full of shoes to put your best foot forward. If you want to be ready for any occasion—day or night, work or play—stock yourself with these sensible and stylish staples. From proper dress shoes (be it classic wing tips or more of-the-moment monk straps) to some subtle suede desert boots and more casual sneakers, every man should own at least one pair from these four categories. The examples provided below are merely suggestions. Let your personal style dictate the actual shoe you choose.
