Planning your winter wardrobe can be a costly affair, especially when you have added in all the necessary accessories and men’s shoes to get you through the cold winter months. Therefore, scoping out the best quality items that won’t break the bank is important. From handcrafted trend-proof styles to bang-on-trend for the moment, here are our top 5 men’s shoes for winter costing less than £150.
#1 Loake 1339
The Loake 1369, costing £134.95, is our top pick. Combining contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship it undoubtedly has an ageless appeal. At its heart it is a smart and sophisticated men’s shoe – ideal for a wedding or the perfect boardroom shoe. Don’t try and dress it down too much - these stylish men’s shoes are too nice for everyday wear. Available in tan burnished calf leather or black calf leather, the Loake 1369 shoe is timeless and exudes elegance.
#2 Loake 253
Next up on our list is another Loake classic. Introducing the Loake 253 – a modern design of the classic derby shoe. The polished leather make this shoe more of a dress shoe and is especially ideal in the lead up to black-tie winter events but equally at home as an office shoe. If you are after a smart, sleek look then team the Loake 253 with a smart suit and an open neck crisp white shirt and you will turn heads. Priced at a reasonable £114.95 these derby shoes are excellent value, will last for years and are certainly a worthy addition to any shoe collection.
#3 Anatomic Gel Tucano
We couldn’t have a top 5 shoe list and not include brogues. Coming in at just £114.95, the Anatomic Gel Tucano brogue shoes are extremely versatile in either colour option; navy suede or cognac floater. They’ll take jeans and a casual gingham shirt up a notch, yet team them with a suit and they’ll bring a smart and stylish look that doesn’t feel out of place. The Tucano is distinctive for many reasons including the brogueing, the stitching, the soft suede and leather. The brogues are tried and tested in the fashion stakes and thus are a safe winter wardrobe choice.
#4 Barker Newington
Penny loafer’s don’t get much classier than the Barker Newington. Once again we see a hi-shine black formal shoe top the list and coming in at £140, they very much deserve the spot. Available in burgundy too, the hand-sewn lockstitch with saddle detailing add to the overall look of the moccasin. A smart pair of moccasin shoes like the Barker Newington will boost your nine-to-five wardrobe.
#5 Loake Pangbourne
And finally making it onto our top 5 men’s shoes is another brogue shoe - the Loake Pangbourne. This style of shoe reminds us of the Jazz age and there’s no doubt about it these shoes will have vast appeal. They will instantly set you apart from the rest of the office but who wants to be the me-too in the office anyway? Made with soft burnished calf leather the Pangbourne is available in black and brown and available in the extra wide 'H' fitting for those men who have a wider foot.
So – there you have it. Our top 5 shoes under £150. What do you think? Do any of the shoes make it onto your winter wardrobe wishlist?
