Jeans are a staple clothing item and something you can wear every day of the week and to multiple different occasions. The best thing about jeans is that they come in so many different styles, colors, and cuts so finding your perfect jeans is easy. The hard part is finding the shoes that go best with them!
That is why we have come up with a list of the top 8 shoes to wear with jeans to help guide your look. These jean and shoe combinations always look great and will stop your constant struggle of searching for the perfect shoe at last!
The shoes in this post include sneakers, dress shoes, and boots as these are all staple footwear pieces and can transform a jean look.
Top 8 Shoes to Wear with Jeans
1. White Sneakers
When all else fails go with a classic white sneaker. A white sneaker goes with virtually anything and is a staple shoe that everyone should own. The contrast of the light shoe with a darker coloured jean really makes your outfit pop, but white sneakers with light jeans also look great.
Vans are another classic shoe for jeans and are widely worn by men around the world. Vans are not only super comfortable but also very affordable, which is great if you are looking for a new pair of shoes. These shoes can be paired with any kind of denim as well, dark wash, light wash, even white and they will look great.
However, Vans are a very casual shoe and should be avoided if you are going for a more upscale look.
3. Slip-on Shoes
Slip-ons are on the move shoes that are perfect for you men that can't be bothered with tying laces all the time. Slip-Ons come in a variety of colours and styles and some even have designs on them. But I suggest wearing a plain color with your jeans for a more put-together look.
4. Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots are a more formal footwear option than the previous ones and can be dressed up or down depending on the rest of your look. These boots are very fashion-forward and will make you feel and look great. A darker pair of Chelsea boots looks best with light wash jeans and a light Chelsea boot looks best with dark wash jeans.
5. Chukka Boot
Chukka boots are another man's footwear staple because they are more formal than sneakers but with all the same comfort. These look best in neutral colors, and pair with virtually any jean on the market. The chukka is as close as you will get to a sneaker but with a less casual vibe.
Loafers are a step up in fanciness from the previous shoes, but not quite a dress shoe. This is a perfect casual, dressy option that you can wear with your jeans to work or for drinks with friends. Wearing loafers is the perfect way to step up your outfit and make it a little more stylish.
Oxfords are a fancier dress shoe option that is perfect if you are looking to amp up your jeans and dress shirt combination. These shoes make a grand first impression and can make help make the jean combination more causal if need be.
Oxfords usually come in neutral colors which means they go well with everything and offer a classy addition to a look, without being too bold.
A brogue is essentially an oxford but with slight differences. However, both are on the list because I want you men to know that they are both very good options for pairing with jeans! A brogue is a classy and upscale looking shoe that can transform a simple pair of jeans into something you can wear out on the town for a fancy date. Or if you'd like to keep a business professional look while still casual with the jeans.
As you can see there are more shoes than you thought that can go with jeans. It is not as hard as it looks, and with this post in your pocket, you can look back to it if you are ever wondering which shoes to pick and which to ditch. I hope this has opened your mind to how jeans can be styled with different types of shoes, I look forward to seeing your trendy combinations!
