Men’s shoes don’t have to eschew style in favor of comfort, as this duo of fashion-forward footwear aptly demonstrates. Step into your new favorite shoe brand, which is likely one of these ultra-comfortable options.

There’s a reason why Giorgio Brutini’s slip-in loafers are named Le Glove: they’re soft and crafted with buttery leather, they’re comfortable, and they fit securely – just like a pair of fine winter gloves. They’re also remarkably versatile, ideal for casual events and semi-formal events alike. City dwellers can stroll through Central Park or all along the Hudson River promenade in supreme comfort – and look great all the while. Find them and other new fall styles at

Men down under in Australia seem to do a lot of walking, desert hiking, and rounding up of cattle and the like, so take a style tip from fantastically rugged Aussie men and lace up this fall in Emu’s Winston desert boots.

If you can’t decide between these two, opt for both: one for Lincoln Center, the other for the museums.
