Groom shoes can be just as loud and colorful (and erm, expensive) as bridal footwear

John Fluevog Mens Kaplan Oxford

Of course I absolutely understand why so many Offbeat Grooms love Converse — they're stylish and super affordable. Let's not forget, however, that there are some dudes and masculine-identified types who want footwear that is upscale, and fancypants.

For these fancypants types, I bring you today's post full of loud colorful formal footwear in masculine styles. Of course there's some Fluevog action in here, but I've also got some Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and some skull-covered Jeffery-West. The sad truth is that some of these shoes are really, really expensive… but they're also really, really fabulous. Even if you're just window shopping, there are styles in here to love…

  1. Oooh! I like some of those that lean towards boots! Can we do a groom/male-identified/masculine boot round-up? Like, all sorts of boots. Tall boots! Short boots! Western boots! English boots! All the fancy boots! 😀

    8 agree
  2. total awesomeness – and why wait for a wedding? there are some serious possibilities here for my beloved

  3. Oh my goodness, those orange brogues. And the metallic blue ones!

    My visa is really, really happy neither of them are in stock in my size.

  4. I am in the process of looking for some lady shoes for myself, and I think I'm coming to the realization that Toms or Chaco sandals might be the best options for me. But in my search I found that Toms actually has a BUNCH of deeply fabulous dude shoe options.

  5. Could we possibly see a big feet version of this? I'm not sure how big most of these go up, but my boyfriend wears size 13 wide. It's hard enough for him to find everyday footwear, I'm nervous about dress shoes big enough.
