17 Feb Retailers Reveal Why Men’s Dress Shoes Are Making a Comeback For Fall
The fall ’17 shows during men’s fashion month offered a surprisingly dressy message. Compared to last year’s sneaker boom, designers appear to be once again embracing classic dress silhouettes.
Below, five luxury retailers sound off on the new dress-shoe treatments.

“The dress-shoe comeback appears to be motivated by the continuous trend in military-inspired apparel and accessories. We are seeing chunky leather laceups and boots, predominantly in black. The creeper with a chunkier sole has been big. Great pieces from Salvatore Ferragamo, Bally, George Brown Bilt, To Boot, H by Hudson and Wolverine speak to these trends. Another key fashion trend is the return of double-breasted suiting and a 1980s Wall Street look.”
