With as many choices for male fashion as there are for the ladies these days, filtering through the bounty of options can be difficult. But not to worry: from dapper leather boots to classic canvas sneakers, our friends at Refinery29 have put together an outstanding list of the top fall 2009 shoes for men.
The traditional leather boots from Opening Ceremony and Urban Outfitters are perfect for everyday use. Each with a subtle twist on the more traditional silhouette, Opening Ceremony's M15 Zip-up Boots (above left) are available for $400, while Urban Outfitters' Leather Slouch Boot (above right) are $120.
For a more casual leather boot, Alden's High Work Shoe Indy Boots (above left) keep it simple and are available for $322 at Seattle's Blackbird boutique. The Vael Brogues' boots (above right) give a nod to the fall weather with a flannel trim and they are available for $169 from Revolve.
Raf Simons shines up the sturdy three-eye Dr. Martens with a turquoise matte classic. It's a nice collaboration that goes as well with a suit as a pair of jeans (above left). They are available from NYC's Oak boutique for $259. Another impressive match-up is Rachel Comey's Uncle Dan Oxfords for Steven Alan. The colorful rubber souls add an unsuspecting spin on a time-honored shoe. Available for $322 from Steven Alan.
Palladium and Sperry show off the versatility of gray sneakers with modest yet bedecked lace-ups. Palladium's Metal Pampa Hi Canvas Sneakers are available at Urban Outfitters for $65 while Band Of Outsiders X Sperry Topsider Crushed Leather Chukkas are available at Opening Ceremony for $230.
YMC Suede Sand Boots and F-Troupe Navy Chukka Sneakers complete a casual look, providing alternative options to the ubiquitous Chuck Taylors. The YMC boots are available at Gargyle for $150 and the F-Troupes can be found at Oak for $96.
