Did you know that the average consumer of men’s luxury fashion will have at least four (4) leather items on them at any given time? It’s true! In fact, men’s luxury items are becoming increasingly popular, particularly among millennial men (ages 18-34) who make up the key consumer base.
Many may direct their gaze to items such as exotic belts, exotic dress shoes, etc. but exotic leathers only make up one percent of all globally-traded leather. However, this should not be discouraging as their are many other luxury items to choose from. A good place to start is with leather dress shoes. After all, men’s dress shoes account for around six percent of the shoe market share.
When purchasing mens designer dress shoes, there are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Mens designer dress shoes require a lot of love and care in order to stay in good condition. A good investment for any owner of leather shoes is a shoe tree. Shoe trees help retain the shape of the shoe over time. There are two tips of shoe trees-plastic and wooden. If you want something light-weight and easy to travel with, go with the plastic. If you’re looking for something higher quality that is better at absorbing moisture and odor, choose wooden shoe trees.
2. On a similar note, it is important to rotate mens designer dress shoes about every other day. This will given the shoes time to recover from the compression that happens during daily use.
3. Find a good leather polish. Along with a shoe tree, regularly polishing your leather shoes can lead to them lasting ten times as long. These are all important things to consider when buying mens designer dress shoes.
Of course, if you already have too many designer leather shoes, there are other things you can chose from. Luxury leather belts are always a great way to go. Accessories like hats, ties and watches can also really dress up an outfit. In any case, luxury fashion is no small commitment but it’s one that will pay off time and time again.
