A few years ago, a Time Magazinepoll came out that said the average American man owns twelve pairs of shoes. Which got us thinking: If we had to have exactly a dozen pairs, what would we go with? Hell, what should every guy go with? Well, we decided to answer that question. So now, as a public service, allow us to present the shoes every man should own. Think of them as the foundation—both literal and figurative—of a lifetime of style, no matter the occasion.
Think of them as your workhorse shoe. Perfect with everything from jeans to suits, and appropriate for everything but formal occasions and (very) important meetings with (relatively) conservative business partners.
