A new decade is here and with it, comes our plan to invest in the best items we can. Value has always been something that we've prized here at Valet. That doesn't necessarily mean something has to be inexpensive. It means that the item is valuable—worthy of the cost. Because to buy well means that you've bought something that will serve you for years to come. Welcome to the Ultimate Investments, a week-long roundup of the best buys for 2020 and beyond. First up? Shoes.
The 10 Shoes Worth Splurging On
When it comes to cost-per-wear, a good pair of shoes has to deliver the most value of any item in a man’s closet. We can wear the same pair multiple times a week. A good shoe can last a man years—decades even, if he takes good care of it and employs a cobbler to refurbish and resole now and again. But you've got to spend your money wisely on the pairs that will work for you. Where do you start? Zero in on the brands known for their quality and choose from them, even if that means buying less. You will probably not need ever kind of shoe on this list, but there's no doubt a few could serve you well for years to come.
