Jeans have long ceased to be work clothes. The practicality and beauty of indigo trousers (of course, now technology allows you to dye denim in a variety of colors) were appreciated by men and women around the world. Every man has more than one pair of jeans in his wardrobe. Most prefer to wear them with sneakers or sneakers. But the range of suitable shoes is not limited to this. To make the image of a man stylish and relevant, you need to choose the right pair of shoes for jeans. Let’s tell you more about the selection rules and current models.

Features and rules of combination
Needless to say, the classic work pants-jeans have long become iconic. Currently, in men’s clothing stores, whole stands are allocated for jeans, where models of various styles and colors are presented. In addition, now you can find jeans for men with scuffs and holes, decor, additional pockets, etc. What kind of shoes to wear with all these models? It should be noted that not every pair will fit sneakers or sneakers.
Important: we should immediately note that no jeans will be able to make friends with model shoes (for example, patent leather). Such shoes oblige you to wear them exclusively with a certain type of suit.
Stylists have identified a number of simple tips that men should follow when choosing shoes that they plan to wear with jeans:
- consider the style of trousers;
- shoes must be seasonal. Summer sneakers will look extremely strange (even of unearthly beauty and the latest model), for example, in January or March;
- a fashionable failure — the back of jeans covers the back of shoes or is badly frayed from contact with the ground, asphalt. The exception is the models whose manufacturer provided for such a design initially. They can be safely worn, observing slight negligence in the other elements of the image;
- even when buying, it is necessary to take into account the moment — how it is planned to wear the trousers themselves — with or without lapels. If a man does not plan to turn up his trousers, it is important to choose the right length of the legs — it is considered relevant just below the ankle bone.
Tip: stylists recommend having several models in the wardrobe at once — straight, narrowed, oversize, with a twist. Then you will not have to suffer with an even bend of the leg of jeans along the desired length. Having made a capsule, a man will be able to wear jeans with a variety of shoe models.
Jeans and sneakers
Many men believe that jeans are a sporty style. And they try to wear them exclusively with sneakers. That’s not so. Some models are perfect for sneakers, but in most cases it is worth choosing shoes of neutral colors. Many manufacturers of these shoes have long been producing collections that are suitable not only for jeans, but also cotton chinos.
Jeans and shoes
As already noted, patent leather versions of shoes in combination with jeans are taboo. But leather or suede shoes will be a great addition to jeans. But it is important to choose models of calm shades, made of natural materials. Brown, black or beige colors are usually well suited.
Do not forget that properly selected shoes give an ordinary everyday look elegance and a business accent.
Jeans and sneakers
These clothing models are just made for each other. The stylists’ recommendation is that a man must have a pair of sneakers in his wardrobe: canvas and leather. For summer, models of shoes with perforations are suitable.
Important: canvas shoes are comfortable and versatile, but it’s quite difficult to take care of them. This is especially true for white models. After washing, they often turn yellow and it is very difficult to remove such yellowness. It is recommended to use special compositions for washing.
Jeans and boots or half-boots
A variety of models of boots and ankle boots are a good choice for cold and rainy seasons. They will fit perfectly into the casual style. An important point is that shoes should be made of natural material, well—groomed and not worn. Otherwise, it is not recommended to wear it.
We select shoes depending on the model of jeans
First of all, it is important to take into account the model of gins that a man is going to wear.
This model of trousers is quite insidious, so it is worth considering a number of nuances:
- Loose Fit is a jeans model that assumes a kind of sporty relaxation and carelessness. This model can be successfully worn with casual style sneakers, boots with massive soles. A man can afford to wear a luzfit with a bright pair of shoes;
- Relaxed Fit is a more familiar version of the model with wide legs. Suitable for the daily image of a man, you can wear it with sneakers or massive boots. The main thing is that the shoes are comfortable, and the shoes are made of natural materials.
Note that skinny jeans will look great only on a toned athletic figure. This does not mean that a tight model is suitable for a pumped—up body – it is better to give preference to the classics here. Narrow models of trousers are perfectly “mounted” with sneakers (give preference to the legendary Converse of any shade), moccasins, high boots.
Summer is an opportunity to wear skinny jeans with yacht boots, canvas sneakers. In winter, shortened ugg boots (exclusively leather models), which are disliked by many, are suitable, and can also be worn with warm timberlands.
Without exaggeration — classic straight jeans are in every man’s wardrobe. For some representatives of the stronger sex, the capsule consists exclusively of this model. This is not surprising — this cut is suitable for almost everyone and fits well into the casual style — smart, business, sports, etc.
Optimal shoe modules with which you can wear classics: brogues, moccasins, loafers, deserts, timberlands. Sneakers will also fit here — white, blue, beige, gray shades. It is important to choose classic models, not training shoes. You should also wear jeans in everyday life according to the rules — without decorative flashy elements. Shades: indigo, black, gray, brown.
Important: brogues, moccasins and oxfords are beautiful in themselves. Therefore, it is important to wear jeans in such a way that all the decorative elements of the shoes are visible. A man can safely turn up his trousers in such a way as to open a pair of shoes.
Skinny jeans that fit a little. They are ideal for young people with muscular legs, as well as stress relief. You can wear them with relaxed models of sneakers, high shoes suede or rough leather. But in the summer a man can choose classic suede loafers, high canvas shoes (sneakers). Fit original design — he only complement the image of men.
Cropped model is not the first year at the height of fashion. Love from both men and women. This is a great opportunity to show the beauty of the chosen pair of shoes. Goes with the shoes (even the sportier variants), brogues, loafers, oxfords, monk, desert boots, and almost any pair.
Jeans with scuffs and torn jeans
Jeans with scuffs and holes themselves are already an active element that attracts everyone’s attention. So you will need to pick up for them a pair of shoes that slightly muffle the activity of the image of a man. It is better to wear torn models with moccasins, loafers, sneakers and sneakers.
Tip: if you want to create a memorable image, you should wear ripped jeans with red Converse (high or low). It is important to complement the image with another element of a red shade — a baseball cap, bandana, etc. But the rest of the components of the image of a man should be neutral — a white or black T-shirt, jacket or sweater, jacket or cardigan.
We take into account seasonality
Seasonality cannot be dismissed when choosing one or another pair of shoes for jeans. Even if a man spends most of his time in the car, poorly chosen shoes will make his life unbearable. Frozen or wet feet will spoil the whole day, and possibly lead to illness. Wearing the right shoes is the key to a stylish image and health.
For the winter
Pay attention to insulated shoe models.
Signs of a good choice:
- inflated shin area to protect the foot from snow and other precipitation;
- the ability to temporarily fill the legs of jeans with shoes. Men should remember that this does not apply to models with wide legs;
- rough sole — a man does not have to go around and jump through all the puddles, mud patches and islands of snow in such shoes;
- classic colors and natural materials. Wearing such shoes is not just pleasant, but also relevant.
Important: sneakers with rubber soles and too bright shades are better left until spring and summer.
For the summer
The onset of the warm season does not mean that you can wear any shoes. Wearing low—quality sneakers with rubber soles without ventilation is a bad idea. An important task in the summer is to preserve the microclimate of the legs. That is, you need to wear models made of natural materials with ventilation or perforation.
But the color palette can be any — from black to the brightest shades.
Spring and autumn
Demi-season models are relevant here. During these seasons, the weather may change several times during the day. In the morning, warm the sun, and in the evening — frosts or nasty precipitation. Shoes should be universal, and a man should wear them with confidence.
Suede models are beautiful and stylish, but in the off-season it is better to abandon them and give preference to sneakers, loafers, derbies and deserts of thick leather.
Tip: be sure to purchase a special compound that additionally protects the couple from the effects of precipitation.
We combine the colors of jeans and shoes
When choosing jeans, pay attention to the following points:
- general style — what things in everyday life a representative of the stronger sex prefers to wear;
- the physique of a man;
- the overall color scheme is optimal if it fits into global trends. But every man can choose his own range.
Jeans will become the basic thing to which you will need to pick up the remaining elements of the image.
Under black jeans
They resemble classic trousers as much as possible, which means you need to wear something classic with them. Both sneakers and loafers will fit here. But the color scheme is limited — it is better to choose dark calm tones. Light colors of shoes will look strange with black pants.
Tip: you can wear bright acid shades with black trousers only if there is another such bright spot in the image. For example, red high boots go well with a shirt in a red and black check.
Under blue jeans
The blue shade is a classic. There are practically no restrictions here — it is recommended to wear any shoes (except patent model shoes, as we remember). The shades are very different, including light ones.
Under light jeans
Beige or snow—white jeans will be the perfect background for a brown or blue pair of shoes. A man can choose exactly the shade that he likes. For the bold — a combination of light trousers with a rust-colored monki. Tip — complement the image with a green or turquoise T-shirt or shirt.
Physique features and choice of shoes
We are used to having to take into account the features of a man’s physique when choosing clothes. Not only the convenience of a man depends on this criterion, but also how this or that element of the image sits. Jeans are no exception.
For many men, it is surprising that a number of shoes are not recommended to be worn with a particular physique. Nuances:
- tall men — shoes with a pointed toe will do;
- short men — it is worth wearing shoes with a rounded toe;
- if visually the legs look short in relation to the length of the body — wear options on thickened or rough soles. But it is better to abandon the increased height of the lower leg.
Important: shoes should not cause discomfort to a man. Take into account the width of the foot, so that the legs do not end up in a vice and do not experience medieval torture every minute.
The smart casual style in a man’s wardrobe allows you to look stylish at the workplace in the office, go to evening gatherings with friends or to the cinema, visit the theater and remain elegant and in place. Jeans will become the basis of the capsule. Many representatives of the stronger sex believe that one pair of jeans and shoes is enough. That’s not so. Try to diversify your wardrobe with textures and colors. And of course, do not forget about accessories — the belt should fit under jeans. Wearing a trouser belt is bad form.
A number of examples for inspiration.
Here it is important to create a balance between relaxed and strict. We suggest wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and a blazer of gray, brown, blue shades. Please note that the T-shirt must be of high quality and dense. Do not wear cheap options that will lose shape after a couple of washes. Shoes — brown soft loafers.
Semi – official bow
It is important to work with the details here. Offers to choose blue or gray jeans with flaps, loafers or derby shoes of any shade. Now you can pick up the top — a neutral-colored T-shirt, a light blazer. If we are talking about the cold season, we will replace the T-shirt with a thin wool sweater of a similar shade, a blazer with a wool jacket or coat. In winter, wear warm desert or Timberland models with a wool lining.
Concise and youthful
Sneakers inexplicably refresh the image of a man and make him more fit. It is optimal to choose a black or snow-white model. Necessarily made of leather. Complete the image with a shirt or blazer with a T-shirt. If there is a desire to choose an acidic color of sneakers or multicolored — the remaining elements should be neutral. Unless, of course, the man is a rapper or an outrageous blogger.
A city man is a practical and fashionable resident of a megalopolis. On rainy days, you should wear thick leather desserts with jeans. Complement them with a bomber jacket or a straight knee—length coat – the image is ready.
Jeans are a win—win option for those who appreciate comfort and relaxation. Shoes will help take them to a new level. the main thing is to wear something that you don’t just like, but also complies with the rules of seasonality, the style of trousers and the physique of a man.
