A non-slip, non-marking sole and water-resistant waxed leather make them perfect for this.Today they have become classic casual wear, no longer reserved for the docks. This type also looks good with chinos if you prefer something preppier than denim.
Quarter brogues are more than enough, since that means you can wear them with suits as well.
Also, open-lacing boots, like the ones in the picture, are less dressy than closed-lacing boots (we’ll get to those in a bit).
They’re also unlined and often lighter, and so the desert boot is the one I prefer. Chelsea boots have a solid pedigree and date back to the Victorian era (mid-1800s). They can be higher than chukkas, and instead of laces, they have elastic side panels. As with dress shoe soles, a Chelsea sole is usually made of stained leather or rubber.
This gives them a dressier look than the white soles of chukka boots.
Also, if it’s a warm summer day try sporting sneakers without socks, like you do when wearing shorts. By the way, brown shoes look better with blue jeans than black jeans.
If you find it uncomfortable for any reason, put on a pair of no-show socks, also called ‘sneaker socks’. That’s because brown is a warm colour and don’t match cool black pants.
Good sneakers to wear with jeans should be classics.
There are a couple of shoes that will look too dressy. But first: Here are the 10 shoes to wear with jeans in dark washes. Just to make it clear, we’re not talking about technical sneakers, such as the signature sneakers of Le Bron James … or the latest running shoes from Salomon (more on that in a bit).
To look your best, here’s what to do to really nail slip-ons: If the occasion isn’t formal or business-related, lose the socks (or wear sneaker socks). Rather, wear these casual shoes with jeans as often as you can in the summer. Of course, casual and hiking boots should never be worn in combination with jeans and a blazer.
But some boots—like desert boots, Chelsea boots, and dress boots—can.
These will look just as much at home with a pair of jeans as with a suit.
