I’m pretty sure all guys want a pair of shoes by Mark McNairy. To be honest, I don’t even know if it matters which style, guys just want to have the cool-guy-points you get for having a pair encasing your feet. So, while all of McNairy’s styles are pretty good I’ve decided to focus on one of my favourite pairs of the current collection – the Navy Buck.
These bucks are the best because whilst being relatively simple, they’re just off-beat enough for you to notice that they’re not your average shoe. As the name suggests, they’re navy. This is good. They’re a classic style shoe but the navy suede makes them a little different than your usual black or brown pair. And bonus: navy is a versatile colour that seems to work with a lot of other shades. Perfect for the guy on a limited shoe budget. Another quirk – the red brick EVA sole. Trot down the road in these babies and just try to stop the girls staring at them. The flash of stony red sole will catch your eye whether you want it to or not. Pair these with cropped trousers and bare ankles in summer, or with a pair of coloured socks in winter (those melange ones would be perfect) and forget about walking – you’ll be flying.
