John Fluevog Gateway OxfordI realized, why should ladies get all the fun? Grooms need shoes too, and while a black leather shoe is fine … there are certainly more exciting options for the offbeat gentlemen (or larger-footed genderqueers) in the house.

I went a pecking around and found everything from oxfords to double monks to boots that cost more than I think my husband has spent all his shoes combined ever. So grab your groom (or groom-identified-type-person) and let's try a few styles on for size…

  1. Can I just let you know how hard of a time I had looking for the grooms suit and matching shoes? and ended up being where I found his pimp cream suit and shoes. Stores were not helpful and choices were limited. Posts like these are much appreciated!

  2. Very fun looking at all these shoes for the fancy gentlemen in our lives. I think we're still gonna go the boring route of matching Chucks though. :]

  3. I think some tux places (maybe Men's Warehouse?) rent out patent-leather chucks as well for the "Offbeat Lite" crowd.

  4. I love the turquoise and brown, but then we realized we could customize some Chucks. I feel a bit more complete.

  5. the black and blue dress shoes at the top of the article – the link to zappos no longer works. anyone know where i can find those shoes? what is that style/cut called?
