5 Men’s Shoe Must Haves for 2019
[0:00:00] Today’s video, gents, five dress shoes that
every man should own. [Music]
Coming in at number five, gentlemen, we’ve got the wholecut. Now, a decade ago, this wouldn’t have been
on any of my top ten list, but I have watched the shoe evolved and be picked up by more
and more men because they realize this is going to be a modern classic because of its
elegance, its simplicity, and the overall look. When you get a pair of wholecuts, you understand
that this right here is a quality shoe. It’s built from one large piece of leather. Why is that important? Because a large unblemished piece of leather
is very difficult to find. And, let’s talk about color. So, black is going to be the most formal of
colors. If you had a black pair of wholecuts, I think
you could pull off even with black tie. But, right here what do we have? We have a dark brown chestnut that then goes
darkens into a very dark brown and then into a black, a very nice finish. This right here will work great with a blue
suit. Now, right here I’ve got a wholecut in burgundy. Burgundy is a great color because if you like
black shoes, any outfit that goes with your black shoes is going to go with burgundy. Burgundy is going to bring a lot more pop. This is going to look great with a charcoal
suit, a dark gray suit, even a blue suit you could pull this off. Gents, throughout this video, you’re going
to see some beautiful shoes. If you want to grab any of them, click on
the link down in the description and go check out Ace Marks, they’re the sponsor of today’s
video. I’ve been talking about them since 2016
because they make amazing shoes at a great price. And, gents, in case you haven’t heard, Ace
Marks is now making shoes with a Goodyear welt construction. And for those of you that love the Blake stitch,
don’t worry, guys, they’ve got you covered and, in fact, they’ve made it even better
with their factory access program with Blake stitch shoes starting a $150. Yeah, you heard me right, gents. We’re talking about shoes made up of quality
leather that they could be selling for over $600 that Ace Marks is selling directly to
you for less than $150. Guys, I know thousands of you have already
taken the plunge and grabbed your Ace Marks. Why do guys love them? First up, the quality. The shoes over at Ace Marks are made by a
fourth generation artisan family. Everything is handcrafted in Italy, so they
only use premium leathers, 100% full-grain calf leather. Now, with the insoles, they use a memory foam
cushioned insole that molds to your foot over a very short amount of time, so you have all
day comfort. Now, the styles of the shoes, this is where
they get it right. So, the best thing that Ace Marks does is
they talk to their customers. So, guys, all these styles they’ve got on
the website, it’s because you’ve given them feedback of what you want, what actually
you want to purchase and then they make it. Guys, use the link in the description of today’s
video. You’re not going to find a better deal out
there. Please take advantage of this deal. Those shoes are amazing. Coming in next on the list we’ve got the
double monk strap, again, a modern classic. Over the last ten years, I have watched this
basically come from a novelty shoe to one that many men are going for and for good reason. Why? Well, if you look at the single monk and nothing
against it, I think it’s a good shoe, but the size of the buckle it just looks a little
bit clumsy. What I love about this is you’ve got the
two smaller buckles. Now, you’re going to hear some guys say
that the double monk is actually more comfortable than the single monk. I haven’t noticed the difference owning
both types of shoes. It’s also a loafer, so it’s able to go
on and off without any type of laces. This is not something that’s going to be
the most formal of shoes, but it’s very versatile and it’s great for traveling. I love that I can actually slip these off,
put them back on without having to tie anything. Now, there’s a wide range of color options
out there and textures. The most formal is going to be a solid black. What do you want to start with? I like to have a little bit of fun with my
double monk. So, as you can see, I went with a contrasting
color here. For me, I just really like the look, it works. I go for usually darker brown or oxblood or
burgundy shoes in my collection. But, for some of you guys that are just starting
off, a black is great or just go with a solid brown. Now, if you’re going to go with something
textured, let’s say you want to look at maybe a suede or you want to go with something
a little bit brighter in color, maybe a dark green, this is not going to be the most versatile
of shoes, something with a brighter color or texture like that is going to stand out,
be remembered. But, if you want a shoe that just rocks and
you like the look of it, then go for it. And, let’s talk about the outsole. The outsole is going to be the bottom of the
shoe. This one in particular, I went with a rubber
sole. Why? I wanted to have a little bit more traction
and that’s what you want to think of. In higher end shoes when you’re looking
at Blake stitch or a Goodyear welt, most of those are going to have a leather sole unless
you opt to get a rubber sole put on that. I do it for traction reasons, but if you want
to go with straight leather, that’s cool as well. It’s actually a great sign of quality. Coming in at number three and I’m going
to cheat a bit, I’m going to say grab a dress boot. Whether you want to go for a Chelsea whether
you want to go for a Chukka, it’s up to you, but I like to have a boot and really
it comes down to the elements. Boots offer a bit more protection. What I love about a Chelsea, it slips on and
off. Again, if I’m traveling this is a great
option, has a very simple elegant look. And, notice that look right there on the back? You want to look for that when you’re grabbing
a pair of Chelseas makes it really easy to put them on. Now, the Chukka boot is a great option, a
little bit more casual than the Chelsea because it’s got the three simple laces right over
here. It comes out of the desert boot out of WW
II. Now, it’s evolved into a dress boot. I think it’s a great option, again, when
you’ve got inclement weather or if you want to dress something down like you’re going
for a pair of odd trousers with a sports jacket or even a pair of dark-colored jeans. [0:05:10]
Coming in at number two on our list, gentlemen, we’ve got the classic blucher. A blucher is going to be an open laced dress
shoe. This is not going to be the most formal of
dress shoes, but it’s a very versatile dress shoe. This is one that you can wear with jeans you
can actually wear it with a suit in some situations. Now, it is not going to be formal, so you
want to avoid in my opinion bluchers that are black. For me, a natural color for a blucher is going
to be a medium or a dark brown. Now, to identify a blucher, what you’re
looking at is the back part of the shoe, the quarter is thrown on top of the front part
of the shoe which is the vamp. Now, this pair of shoes right here is a fancier
blucher and what do we notice right here? First, it’s going to be the blue suede the
contrast right here that is over on the back quarter, again, thrown on top of the vamp. We’re also going to notice this is wingtip
and it’s got broguing in and on this design, this one is going to grab a bit more attention
because of the contrasting colors and the materials used. But, overall, it’s the same shoe, we’re
talking a blucher should be in every man’s wardrobe. And, before I reveal the number one shoe in
today’s video, gents, let me know do you like this video, click on that like button. And, if you’re new to Real Men Real Style,
click on that subscribe become part of our community. The YouTube god, Crom, he has told me that
you guys need to interact with these videos. Let me know how I’m doing, so I can get
better. Number one on my list, gentlemen, the classic
balmoral oxfords in black. Why is this the shoe? It seems so boring. I know. And this one right here has a little bit of
a cap toe which you could see that detail. Why would I put this one at number one? This is the go-to shoe whether you’re wearing
black tie, whether you’re wearing a dark business suit, or even if you’re wearing
a gray casual suit, you could still pull these off. This is your go-to shoe for important events. When you don’t want to draw attention to
yourself, you want to simply show up and show your respect, this is the shoe that makes
things happen. It has been around for almost a hundred years. And guess what? I think it’s going to be around for another
hundred years. This is going to be your workhorse, this is
going to be the shoe you’re going to get your miles out of, so make sure to have it
in your wardrobe. And, guys, by the way, if you’re curious
what’s inside an Ace Marks shoe, I cut one in half. You want to see that video? Check it out right here. I cut an Ace Marks shoe in half to show you
guys the quality construction inside of Ace Marks. And, gents, if you disagree with me, let me
know down in the comments what shoes should have been on this list. Should I have had basically the penny loafers
should have been on the list? An oxford right here? Should I have gone maybe with a shoe like
this? Look at that, beautiful. Again, you can find this over at Ace Marks,
this is part of their signature collection. It’s got a Goodyear welt on it. Nice construction. Go check out Ace Marks. I’m linking to them down in the description. That deal is amazing. Just a great company. Proud to support them. I’ve met them in person, guys, they’re
the real deal. Go check them out. And, finally, kind of a side question, but
does anyone else out there just love the smell of a new pair of shoes? I almost don’t want to even wear these things
because they smell so good. You got to love new shoe smell just leather
in general just great smelling shoes. [0:08:07] End of Audio

  • The video starts at 2:40

  • 🙂

  • I’m a simple guy , I see RMRS video, I click , I like , I watch then I comment.

  • haahh

  • Great Working Antonio.. I have learnt so many things from you . But I have been waiting for my requested video about Banking & Insurance office attire & shoes. Are pin stripes shirt not allowed for Banking & Insurance offices.. what should I wear with confidence that i say to myself n everyone that I know all about dressing than others who claim this is informal n that is casual .. Please Guide me. ??

  • That first shoe looks so nice ? I’ll buy it after I’m done saving for traveling to japan thanks for the great video btw

  • If I can't get a good pair of undershot heel riding boots …then give me those wingtips. They'll work just fine !!!

  • Can you wear a whole cut with a dark jeans( dark blue ir even black jeans)?

  • The black Oxford was the first dress shoe I bought. I love these videos. I really like penny loafers with a mottoes in the summer.

  • Great job DD

  • Glad he said he liked the smell of new shoes and not old ones.

  • Buckle shoes are not "loafers".

  • I've checked out Ace Marks, they got good shoes. I'm ready to refresh my shoe collection.

  • How do you order the rubber soles? i looked on website and can't find any options?


  • Being from Colorado and currently living in New Mexico, I live my boots,….Chukka, Hiking, Western, and the like,…I have a lot of boots as well as dress shoes. Great channel and outstanding video today,…Keep making videos and I will continue to watch.

  • I love my AceMarks!

  • Great list. A nice pair brown or black penny loafers would be my 6th choice. You can get a lot of milege out of them. Nice, casual, maybe even a little dressy. You can dress them up a little (sport coat, dress socks, nice pair of pants) or down (jeans, no show socks, polooxford shirt) I would have never said this 2 years ago and then one day I tried on a pair and I was sold on the style. Now I can't think of a shoe collection that doesn't include at least 1 pair.

  • Hey Antonio, thanks for a job well done, i love Ace Marks damn they are amazing and comfortable

  • You show several great looking examples with leathers that gradually transition colors. How hard is it to maintain the polish on shoes like these? The uncertainty has kept me away from these in the past but I'd love to confidently buy a pair.

  • New shoe smell. GOAT

  • If only I could afford a pair.

  • you never talked about how shoes should your feet

  • For me the following works –
    1) double monks
    2) Chelsea boots
    3) oxfords
    4) penny loafers or tassel loafers or even horsebit or even driving shoes (pick your poison)
    5) wholecuts

    I no longer like open lacing shoes, they just seem improper or perhaps shabby for the lack of a better word
    Great video!
    Thanks for the content ?

  • So much love for the burgundy coloured shoes. I love them so much and what I am wearing today.

  • They are so ugly.

  • Penny Loafers should've been there according to me

  • Totally love the smell of new shoes.

  • Sir make videos for indians.

  • Double monk? Sure…if you're a pimp or a dandy.

  • I would really love to get my Ace Marks, but how do I known if they fit?

  • Monk straps are gay. I’m not a fucking gladiator or medieval merchant.

  • For me the best shoe are the Black WoleCut because it is the most ultra of elegance. Is the shoe of the Boss of the Dandy, of James Bond. Is the shoe of any man wants to have a refined and chic style.

  • Hi Antonio,

    In your honest opinion, is Ace Marks quality of leather comparable to Allen Edmonds?
    Since both are using top grain leather. Is one brand thinner or thicker in leather in their shoes.

  • I agree the new shoe Leather smell is bloody awesome!

  • great video and great list, though those are derbys not bluchers

  • What is the Riddle of Steel?

  • Alpha M. Shoe hacks, Jóse Zuniga 5 white shoes, Antonio shoes… coincidence or not?

  • Oxfords not Brogues

  • Chelsea boots for a real London look

  • Hi Antonio please a vid of suits with sneackers

  • I once wore a pair of shoes with ankle socks, but the shoes cut into my ankles and left scars to this day. Is there a sock you recommend for say the double monk strap?

  • Can not ware in the barn with the cow's!

  • Hey Antonio, I was polishing my dress shoes and for some reason one spot absorbed the cream polish too much and darkened it. It left a line of dark polish and it’s pretty noticeable and tough to get off. How can I solve it?

  • Hello good sir. I have a question and as peculiar as it may seem I thought you were the best to answer it. I am a 26 year old corrections officer at a small county jail here in Maine. I have been watching your videos for some time now and have put some thought into buying myself a nice custom suit. So much thought infact that I have already decided exactly how I would like it to look down to the accent of the lite blue pocket square Haha. Now all of this being said I am trying to find a place this would fit into my every day life. As I stated I am a corrections officer, so I have a uniform I must wear to work. On the outside though I dont have really any opportunity to wear a nice suit. I want to dress my style up but at the same time I dont want to over dress. In my area I honestly cant recall how many times i see a sharp dressed gent with a nice suit. This is the part I hope you can help with, perhaps a few tips or even a video response to help anyone like me, where a suit and tie really doesnt have a place in their every day life. But at the same time they are tired of being your average person who gets lost in the crowd.

  • juup! i would say the pennyloafers and the oxfords definitely should have been in there somewhere

  • How is their shoes compare to Paul Evans.

  • New leather has such a great smell to it…? You are right about that. I think penny loafer should have been at number 6 fot my liking.? Btw Antonia, i had a question:
    What do you think about the Patent shoes (those extra shinny formal shoes)? Where would you rate them??

  • Great video. I am in the market for new shoes so for me, this is very timely!

  • Antonio, you've turned me into a real shoe horse over the past year…lol. But I'm a single-monk guy, mine are just a bit larger buckles so they seem to work fine. Still, as always, great insights and suggestions.

  • Do you have a video that talks about the best way to rock jeans on some of these shoes? I have trouble wearing the right jeans, I’m a bigger guy and it just doesn’t see to fall right. Thanks.

  • Hello Antonio,
    Which brand is a whole-cut Oxford shoes? Really good and I would like to buy one.

  • I think you have to include the penny loafer. There really is no more versatile dress shoe on the planet.

  • You were right about those Acemark's. After a sizing flub I finally got my right fit (and width) boy are they sharp…I catch people breaking their selves while looking at my feet as I move.

    I picked up 6 pair ( Oxford Captoe: Sienna/Black, Double MS: Oxblood , Chukka: Oxblood/Black, Bleucher: Oxblood) and looking to pick up 7 more to round out my collection. Antonio what have you done!!!?

  • The smell of a new pair of shoes is HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!

  • WOW that whole cut is amazing!

  • Hi, Antonio.

    To be honest, I am glad you I see body movement in you. Don’t get me wrong but in your old videos where you just have your arms folded all the time, you just look uncomfortable and made me feel that way too. Not in this video. Here, you feel more natural as if you were talking to us in person. I hope you know what I mean.

    Btw, I loved the wholecuts! And those colors… I am going to check them out now.

  • No derbys? I jus purchased some an need advice on how to wear them

  • If any of you care about your feet you'll ditch squeezing your feet into tight leather badly shapped coffins for your feet and start wearing barefoot shoes that'll allow your feet room to breath and move as they should. Your "whole body" will thank you for it.

  • I clicked the like button even before the video.

  • Hello, Antonio. I'm your russian audience, keep up the good work.

  • Antonio make a video on teen style please❤️

  • Loafers instead of wholecuts

  • Your wholecut have seam on back, quality dress shoes doesnt have

  • I'm not a fan of contrast in dress shoes, especially if it's sth that draws the eyes in. And while black oxfords should be #1, I don't think black works great with navy. You may disagree, but it's something that I have developed – not to put black and DARK BLUES adjacent to each other.

  • There is a difference in Bluchers and Derbies!

  • New shoe smell rocks! I really liked the boot style dress shoe

  • No. Jordans !!! ???

  • As a longer time subscriber and recipient of your helpful emails, I'm disappointed in some parts of your video that relate to men's dress shoes. #1. Wholecuts are only suitable for men who are flat footed with a narrow width.#2 double monk straps are only suitable for those who choose the pant style of slim fit above ankle.Not even business casual.#3 Boots have a very limited wardrobe versatility for the prices offered. #4 Blutchers indeed can be formal because that may be the only style that fits a man's foot Comfortably.#5 Vegan leather/pleather/faux leather/etc. didn't get a look in.
    I think brogues deserved at least some credit. And please consider,not every man can afford 10 pairs of dress shoes in full grain leather.
    Thank you.

  • YOU MADE A MISTAKE, SIR!: I hadn't heard the term blucher used before so I did a quick search and though the blucher is sometimes used interchangeably with the derby there is a key characteristic that you overlooked and the shoe you referred to as a blucher is in fact better characterized as a derby and shoes you showcased as examples of the blucher are all derbies! While they both use open lace systems, the blucher is actually a whole cut shoe with eyelets sewn onto the vamp, whereas the derby has quarter pieces sewn over the vamp. A small detail but a significant one!

  • Why does Ace Marks don't have a Balmoral Oxford? At least i couldn't find it..

  • Definitely penny loafers should of been included.

  • Hi Antonio. I think a lot of your oldest viewers like me are starting to get tired of these always more and more infomercial kind of videos. An update on 5 best shoes to have in 2019 its a great topic but making super generalized recommendations on exactly the shoe categories that your sponsor sells is getting a little too much commercial, too obvious. Maybe recommending more specific shoes to common dress styles or doing non sponsored videos at least once a week or something to make sure your followers don't think that everything turns around sponsorships. Give some makers like Meermin a try even if you have to buy them with your own money or review a great ebay find like vintage imperial florsheims, I don't know, getting back to the basics maybe?

  • I fuck dogs

  • We all deserve to look out best without breaking the bank!

  • Heads up… commercial for Ace Marks for the most part. Nice looking shoes tho.

  • Antonio, I am 14 and yesterday was the day that I bought my first ever suit, for laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I used your tips from videos you've made over the years, and found the perfect one. If you haven't seen one, J.F. J. Ferrar makes an amazing suit that you can get off the rack. Thanks for all of the help!

  • Love this! Keep it Up!

  • If you want cheap nike and adidas, you can contact me.

  • Antonio, I'm looking for a pair of double monks and I'm torn between Ace Marks and Thursday Boots. I like that Thursday has a goodyear welt. I know you have recommended their boots. How would you compare their shoes to Ace Marks?

  • Anyone else hates the way he speaks?

  • I'm a car salesman and I go through shoes like crazy because I'm running around on pavement all the time,any tips to make them last longer?

  • ?

  • Hi. What do you rhink about Mule Leather shoes? Thank you

  • Quick summary:
    1) The Wholecut
    2) Double Monkstrap
    3) Dress Boots
    4) The Blucher
    5) Balmoral Oxfords

    You're welcome.

  • If you're such a great fashion adviser, why are you recommending Ace Marks shoes? I own a pair of their black loafers in black. If you depress the tongue and look under the overarching leather strap, you'll see that the leather underneath is not glossy like the rest of the shoe. And it looks ugly, even when the tongue is not pressed down. You can see it. The shoes are hard to shine, and the manufacturer's apparently-painted-on ugly shine chips off. I am a top-notch retired naval officer former enlisted man pro at spit-shining shoes, and I'm telling you that Ace Marks shoes defy a superior polish. They're never going to look like a fine shoe. So, if the cost is a primary concern: go for it. But if you want something at all decent, save your shekels and pay more. About $400 should do it. This guy was paid off, and so was the Gentleman's Gazette. I must say I am disappointed in the latter. I thought they had higher standards. Money, money, money, unrighteous mammon: It corrupts everything.

  • The wholecut shoe looks fantastic

  • Excellent video. It helped me a lot to buy dress shoes here in Brazil. Thank you.

  • Great video as always! Struggled with the Ace marks link, when direct to website and their shoes are very good.

  • What company makes a more quality shoe? Ace marks or Paul Evans?

  • Hi Sir I have about Tie and Long sleeve, It's okay to combine Black Tie and Sky blue long sleeve? Notice me please thank you for you answer.

  • Whole cut may be most expensive design, but for some reason, absence of marks, boundaries and frames makes me uncomfortable. Am i alone?

  • Nice collection
    Thanks for sharing..
    Stay connected

  • didnt see anything on their site that was in the $150 range. but the shoes in the video looked great.

  • Thanks for the commercial shit head

  • The Ace Marks link isn’t working

  • The selection presented in this video is well received. Thx for your insights!!
