Portland  shoes  are a very important and strategic foundation for men’s style. Whether wearing a business suit, tuxedo or jeans, shoes need to provide comfort and durability. It is this very comfort that will empower men to always put their best foot forward. This article will provide tips ranging from the proper coordination of color schemes to the best care and maintenance for shoes. 

1. Matching Portland Shoes With Pants 

  • Navy pants look best with darker shades of brown, reddish brown, or black.
  • Brown pants will fare best with shoes that are just as dark as the pants. Browns, dark tans and black work best with brown shoes.
  • Green or olive pants should be worn with brown, bordeaux or black in order to create a clean look. 
  • Gray colored pants look terrific with camel, gray or black colored Portland shoes
  • Khakis, dockers or chinos work great with brown, or black  shoes.
  • Black pants should really be worn with black shoes in order to have a flawless look.
  • White pants work well with earth tone colored shoes.
  • Jeans are the most flexible and forgiving as you can easily wear brown, black, tan, camel, or grey. You can always wear sneakers with jeans. 

2. Match Your Portland Shoes With Belts

Always make sure to color coordinate your belt to the color of your shoes. The exception here would be one of those multi-colored belts, in which case you are probably wearing jeans and crocs.

3. Know Your Exact Shoe Size

When purchasing Portland shoes it is absolutely crucial to know your correct size. Even if you think that you know your shoe size, ALWAYS  try the shoes on, to ensure maximum comfort. You may in fact want to measure your own feet. Your feet can swell in the summer months because of the heat. Additionally, your feet may actually become wider, specially if you spend a good deal of time walking around barefoot. You can measure you own feet by tracing each foot onto a piece of paper that is taped to the floor. Using a tape measure or ruler will assist you in getting a perfect size to account for the length and width of your feet.

3. Matching Portland Shoes And Socks

While some experts say that socks should be matched with pants and others say they should be matched with Portland shoes, we advise you to always match the socks with the color of your shoes. Women do pay close attention to this as it shows manly style savvy. 

4. Caring For Shoes 

Make sure to clean your shoes with saddle soap before you ever polish them, otherwise you can damage the surface by rubbing dirt into the polish. Use a brush or cloth to properly clean these and avoid neutral-colored polish as this produces a lower quality shine. Always match the polish and shoe color to guarantee the best quality shine. Also make sure to invest in cedar trees to keep the shape of your shoes and absorb moisture which can warp the shape with time.

Shoe Stores in Portland – Matching Quality with Style

For all the jokes about women and their shoe obsessions there are just was many men who understand the importance of a well-designed, well-made shoe to ensure that their chosen outfit for the day is complete. Gentlemen who watch their appearance know that a terrible pair of shoes can ruin even the most stylish of outfits. When seeking great shoes stores Portland has a few to offer, if you know where to look.

Contrary to what some men may believe people really do notice a guy’s shoes. If they are scuffed, worn or just downright ugly and unsuitable it sends a bad a message as if they had been wearing flip flops or sneakers with their dress pants (which a few seriously style challenged guys still think is OK to do)

One of the more stylish shoe options that can really set a man apart are exotic shoes. Exotic shoes are made from animal hides such as crocodile, lizard and even ostrich. The best of these kinds of shoes are made to order, so that each pair fits their owner like the proverbial glove. New York and LA have stores offering this fashionable footwear but one might not think that when it comes to such shoe stores Portland might have none to offer, but there is one, Estes Men’s Clothing in the ever fashionable Pearl District.

For those seeking a more conservative but equally stylish look the Allen Edmonds line of fine shoes has been chosen by no less than eight American Presidents and countless successful media personalities and businessmen. The only full line offering available to those living in the Portland area is carried at Estes Men’s Clothing where they are expertly fitted by a highly trained and knowledgeable staff.

If the idea of shopping at one of those “discount designer warehouses” appeals to you then when discussing shoe stores Portland has plenty of that type to offer as well. The problem is that the shoes that looked like such a great buy on the shelf tend to wear badly and last for just a few months, as the workmanship that went into their construction was not quite up to the high standards one might have expected.

Shoes are a necessity, not just a fashion item and taking the time to shop for a pair that is of the best quality is really the only sensible course of action for the well turned out man.
