Footwear Combinations for Selvedge Denim Jeans
28th February, 2019 @ 07.14 am
We don't buy the general opinion on jeans that most fashion blogs promote, which is “Denim jeans are for the street and leisure!” A pair of selvedge denim jeans are extremely versatile and we all know it! But using selvedge denim jeans in a smart casual, a party, event or a professional dressing situation comes down to your choice of footwear. What shoes you wear with your jeans defines the flavour of your ensemble. The difference in the aesthetics of your style in something small like wearing trainers with a blazer and denim jeans instead of brogues is radical. Just by throwing on trainers, you are instantly ready to jam at the local pub, looking like the opposite of a non-dorky young and rich technology entrepreneur.
Due to these subtle differences making a huge impact of difference we at RMC advocate the use of the right shoes to get the desired effect that you seek from your denim jeans. Working with footwear to spice up your style can be daunting when you don't know what you are doing. On the other hand, it can also be equally effective when you have nailed the art of knowing what shoes to wear with your jeans. So today we are going to take a look at some popular styles that you can create using footwear ranging from boots to trainer shoes. We have compiled this list based on our ability to break down shoes into broad classifications:
• Boots: Boots and denim jeans are a match made in heaven. A combination that is as epic as French fries and ketchup, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, Jordan and Pippen, Batman and Robin (well, we could go on but you know where we are heading with this!) The amalgamation of the rugged looks of men’s boots with one of our selvedge denim jeans is something that you have got to try. If you are not a fan of boots with thick soles, try going with the simpler options like desert boots or the more sleek looking Chelsea boots.
• Trainers: The classic trainer shoe has not gone out of mainstream attention because they are simple and stylish at the same time. The minimalist white trainers will be the most versatile pair of shoes you will ever own. Trainer and their sporty looks bring out the athleisure side of selvedge jeans.
• Modern Day Sneakers: Today sneakers are highly evolved and have various technologies in them that offer phenomenal comfort and gains in athletic performance. They also come in a diverse range of styles and colours. There are a whole variety of modern sneakers that are made for lifestyle. These shoes look great with selvedge denim jeans. One of our personal favourites at RMC jeans is Nike’s Air Jordans. Besides phenomenal performance on the basketball court, they are simply so good looking. Try on a pair of Jordans with one of our embroidered denim jeans and a bomber jacket for an effective style statement for the street.
• Formal: Well to be honest, by formal we don't mean dress shoes. But casual options like brogues, derbies and boat shoes made of leather look awesome with a pair of plan RMC indigo denim jeans. Throw on a white shirt/knitted pullover and a Navy blue blazer on top for a spectacular look for one of those office parties. Just one thing. Leave the tie behind at home if you went with the white shirt!
