Footwear for a successful work-life balance | October 2018
Tom Theakstone on Wed, Oct 17, 18
FormalArguably the most important time for good footwear. No self-respecting business attire is complete without the right shoes. The golden rule here is that your shoes shouldn’t detract from what you’re wearing. They should, however, be well-made, timeless and versatile. Look no further than the Grenson Liam Derby Shoes. A sleek and smooth upper makes the easy to wear smart or casual – ideal with a suit for that all-important meeting or a pair of chinos and open collar when just popping into the office.
Grenson Liam Derby Shoe in Tan, £225 | Grenson Liam Derby Shoe in Black, £225Luxury materials and over 150 years of craftsmanship ensure that they look every bit the part.
CasualWhether you’re running weekend errands, having a day out with the family, or are off to the football, a casual pair of shoes should never be far from your thoughts. Again, your casual shoe collection should be versatile, and more importantly, comfortable. Think white or black pumps and trainers - both extremely versatile and can be added to your outfit without too much thought.
Lacoste Menerva Leather Trainers in Off White, £110 | Lacoste Avance 318 Trainers, £80Lacoste in particular offer timeless style, with block colourways and signature crocodile logo that adds just the right amount of flair to your footwear.
ActiveOK, so we’re not talking about running marathons, but for those lighter trips to the gym you need active-ready footwear. Draw inspiration brands that know what they’re doing; New Balance and Saucony both have history on the running track, so they know a thing or two about footwear for on the move.
New Balance 840 Sneaker in Grey Navy, £99 | Saucony Shadow 5000 Vintage Trainers in Off White/Grey, £85This is also an ideal opportunity to inject a bit of colour into what's on your feet - so that they'll work perfectly with joggers or sweatpants. The New Balance 840 Sneakers offer clean lines and blocks of colour that will set your feet apart from the competition, while Saucony's Shadow 5000 Vintage Trainers are designed to combine athletic heritage with contemporary style. Perfect.
SocialBig nights call for big footwear. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. A good pair of white shoes should be the star of any social footwear rotation. But as we’ve said time and time again – staples don’t need to be boring. The Grenson Sneaker 1 in White are sumptuously simple, but extremely high on style. They were born to be worn with trousers or your best denim. Versatility, iconic style and quality craftsmanship are just a few reasons why our first batch flew off the shelves. Alternatively, if you need something more casual, try Mallet's range of cutting-edge sneakers that effortlessly smarten up your social attire. They're the perfect smart-casual sneaker and look great dressed up with jeans or chinos. It’s all in the signature metallic gold bar on the heel.
