Extend Yuletide Love To Him With Tan Shoes

Deborah Ocheni One of the things that makes the Christmas season special is the exchange of gifts. When it comes to ideal gift item for men, nothing speaks luxury and class as the tan shoes. The elegant footwear style has been lending a dapper touch to outfits for centuries and continues to do so even today.

Tan shoes are perfect for looks ranging from the most formal to smart casual, they are as versatile as they are timeless. As such, they are an essential staple for all gents, no matter their style sense. The shoes are the perfect option when paired with a grey, dark brown, or navy suits. Rather than wearing dull black, tan shoes are far more striking when paired with these colours and you will visually stand out that special in your life at any occasion.

Tan shoes are very simple to identify, as they are characterized by their lacing array. Tan shoes use what is known as a closed lacing structure just like oxford. That means that the flaps of the shoe, where the laces go, opens at the top, where you place your foot, but isn’t open at the bottom. The flaps flow directly into the body of the shoe.

This is in sharp contrast to Derby shoes, which have flaps that are open at the top and bottom, attaching to the body of the shoe on the sides.


  • Trying to walk quickly in pin heels often ends up looking quite awkward. Between the smaller steps and the compromised balance, it’s best to take your time in heels.
  • Wearing heels makes your stride shorter than normal, so you’ll have to take an increased number of small steps to go the same distance. That not to say baby step is recommended, but don’t try to take your usual long strides either.
  • You may find you want to walk faster than your heels will allow, and end up craning your neck forward to compensate. This ends up looking strange, so allow yourself to lean just the slightest bit back when walking in heels, as this will counteract your inclination to lean forward.
  • When you want to draw a straight line, you will get better results if you look at your endpoint as you draw, rather than looking at your pencil as it moves. Similarly, when walking in heels, you’ll walk more gracefully if you look at your goal point and visualize a straight line going toward your endpoint, rather than looking down at your heels as you walk.
  • The quality of your heels plays a significant role in how comfortable they are. Good materials make for happier feet.
  • The shape of the shoe itself can also help determine how comfortable it will be on your foot. Be sure to check the angle of the arch. A softer arch will be more comfortable.
