Today we have all manner of foot wears available for us to choose from namely loafers, boat shoes, moccasin, boots, dress shoes etc.

The negative side to this is that the Foot Wear brands do not give advice on what clothes are appropriate for certain kind of shoes they make.



#3. Avoid wearing your simple native wears with dress shoes or any other form of Lace-Ups Men’s Shoes.

#4.  Avoid wearing socks with your shoes when wearing native wears, there is no excuse for this even if you live in Antarctica or Iceland.

Some people might be wondering, how are they going to survive all the sweat, stink and perspiration without socks. I would say go for “Half Socks” [NOT Ankle Socks]. There are several no-show socks brand in the fashion market that place a big emphasis on comfort and style. Find them and buy if you must wear socks.
