Whether you’re walking into a boardroom or strolling along a dock, the right footwear is an essential asset.

Paul Puncher Shoes

A Paul Puncher man exemplifies style from head to toe and a beautiful, well-made shoe is the only way to complete the persona. Whether you’re walking into a boardroom or strolling along a dock, the right shoe is the only way to truly pull an ensemble together. Some are designed to be conversation pieces and others are meant to subtly complement your overall look. It is important to understand the different styles of shoe in order to select the correct fashion for each specific occasion.

Leather or suede, laces or tassels, black or brown – there are many choices when it comes to picking the perfect shoe. However, before picking colours and details, you have to know the type of shoe you want to begin with. No matter what look you are trying to achieve, let the experts at Paul Puncher help you find your perfect shoe. We carry beautiful shoes from Allen Edmonds, Armani Collezioni, Pal Zilleri and Hugo Boss – all meant to complement the beautiful garments in our showroom.

Here is a look at five different styles of shoe and how to pair them with your specific style:

Paul Puncher Shoes Oxfords


Oxfords are usually quite plain with few – if any – embellishments. Made with either leather, suede or synthetic materials, oxfords are good all-around dress shoes that are appropriate for numerous occasions. For the office, basic, black oxfords will do the trick. Semi-formal or contemporary chic events call for oxfords as well. In these instances, you can play with colours to change the feel of your outfit. For example, shades like cognac give a sophisticated but still down-to-earth feel. For formal affairs, revert to black oxfords made of highly polished, shiny leather, as well as heels and soles that are sleek and have as little bulk as possible.

Paul Puncher Shoes Loafers


Loafers are either formal or worn as a sophisticated sport shoe. The distinguishing feature of all loafers is a lack of laces or buckles. Traditionally made from leather, loafers are slip-on shoes that resemble a moccasin on top, but have a wide and fairly flat heel. Many loafers have tassels, although they are not as common as they once were. Penny loafers have a strap across the upper portion of the shoe, which was originally designed to hold change or an ornament.
