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. Available in an array of colors for autumn, Emu uses only premium sheepskin for this shoe, as well as merino wool and the best footwear technologies available. Merino wool’s unique properties keep feet toasty warm in the winter and cool in the heat. These shoes are also versatile, perfect with jeans or dressed up a little with khakis.

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