Dress Casual Footwear for the Confident Man
Most men out there know that a stylish pair of dress casual shoes are much more than just great footwear. The right pair of shoes for the occasion can substantially improve your personal style and comfort. Some guys say that shoes are the window to your sole.
Dress casual footwear – from slip-on loafers to saddle styles – are versatile shoes that easily transition from the boardroom to the bar. Many guys may think that casual, suede or soft-leather styles are more comfortable than the rigid, leather Italian shoes you wear with your tailored suit. But the construction of most dress casual footwear is actually not that different from the special pair you pull out for your next big board meeting. Like traditional men's dress shoes, dress casual shoes:
- Don't have removable insoles. The shoes' insides are made of leather or synthetic materials that don't provide cushioning or arch support.
- Are often made of stiffer materials. Leather dress casual shoes still constrict the feet more than athletic shoes.
- Have thin soles that don't provide much cushion.
While your feet may feel great at the beginning of the day, after hours of standing and walking on hard surfaces, they will fatigue. Pain can follow.
Luckily, a pair of insoles will make any pair of dress casual shoes more comfortable. It may seem like there is no room in your shoe for an arch-supporting insole. But Tread Labs new Stride Short provides the sleek comfort and support you need to look good and feel great – anywhere.
Stride Short Insoles Make Dress Casual Shoes More Comfortable
In any pair of men's dress casual shoes, arch-supporting insoles provide substantial support and comfort. By spreading weight over a larger portion of the foot, supportive insoles provide comfort, even in low-volume shoes that provide minimal cushion.
Two key features of the Stride Short makes them perfect for low-volume men's shoes:
- 2/3 length insoles – the shorter length does not take up any volume in the front of your shoes.
- 2-mm top covers – thinner covers keeps heels grounded and are perfect for dress casual shoes that don't have removable insoles.
Remember, if your shoes are made of a stiffer leather, they probably won't stretch over time. Bring a pair of Tread Labs' Short in with you when you try on your shoes to ensure you buy the correct size.
