If you are just starting out to build your wardrobe or in the initial phase & now want to add some options for formal shoes, then considering these factors might be a big help.

Fabric Selection

There are numerous options available when it comes to the fabric on the basis of durability, budget & texture. Some of them are genuine leather, faux or PU leather or suede.

The ability of leather to last longer than its substitutes makes it popular for use in footwear. But it also adds up to the cost of the shoes.

Classics

If you are talking about which style to go for, classics are never out of style. You may consider derbies, brogues or oxfords formal shoes initially. As you build up the confidence you may also experiment with monk straps,chelsea or loafer formal shoes for men as well.

Colour Selection

Formals are well-known to radiate a more matured & sophisticated vibe. Therefore it’s advised to have solid colours such as black formals shoes, brown loafers shoes or tan monk straps or dark brown suede loafer shoes.

Pick your Colour, add a Twist & wear them well.

Brand Selection

If you are just starting out to wear the formal shoes options, then it’s advisable to shop for the brands which are affordable & provide quality products. So that you can add variety in your formal shoe collection. Later, you can opt for the expensive one.

Whatever formal shoe option you choose, don’t forget to match it with your suit - it either blends or should compliment the overall attire.
