How To Sport a Spectator

I feel like most people are afraid of rocking a full-on spectator shoe. Naturally, it is not the most practical model for your banking job but as the world is becoming more and more casual, I don’t see why it is not something that people are not gravitating more towards. I can see that they are not appealing to people that live in places that have harsh weather for most of the year, but for those that have a good amount of sun, should be a no-brainer.

While most trains of thought would think that they are hard to wear, they are actually really versatile, especially in that classic combination of calfskin with some sort of light colored suede/fabric. The beauty of that light colored part of the shoe is that it pairs very well with chinos and jeans, which is what most people are wearing these days. And you can make them more subtle, like below, or a bit more fun like the gent above adding some flair with his bright blue socks. And both look good.

So don’t be afraid to ride the train and get a pair of two-toned spectators. I promise that after you wear them once, you won’t want to stop as they are always fun, make you feel good and will definitely get you lots of compliments. And for the people that look at you in hate, they are just jealous!
