Modern Men Don’t Need Laces

Laceless ShoesObviously, there’s nothing new about owning shoes that don’t require shoelaces. Laceless shoes have been around for a long time, even before Vans released its first laceless shoe in 1966. And velcro sneakers have always been go-to’s for children’s footwear. However, recent trends in men’s shoewear have pushed males to choose footwear options that do not come with laces. Making laceless shoes the trendier fashion pick for feet.

The allure of laceless shoes stems from a couple of factors. First, they’re extremely convenient. What’s easier than slipping your shoes on and stepping out. You never have to worry about tying your shoes or re-tying them if the knot comes undone. Also, there’s no danger of tripping over a lace that goes array. Not to mention the fact that no laces mean no need to ever replace them once wear and tear catches up.

The appeal of wearing Chelsea boots, loafers, and slip-on sneakers has increased in recent decades. Instead of always opting for sneakers with denim, men can take their outfit to the next level with by swapping out them out with a more sophisticated show. Unless you’re a “sneakerhead” who can’t help but get excited to lace up a fresh pair of “Space Jam 11s”. Even athletic wear has decided to progress more towards the laceless side of the spectrum. The belief is that using technology that doesn’t require laces can provide a more comfortable and practical fit for extremely active people.

The epitome of style, Chelsea boots demostrate just how functional fashion shoes can work without the hassle of laces. Perfect for casual or dress, simply slip them on and head out the door. The designs are fairly simple, but also classic. Their versatility lies in the fact that you can wear them with jeans and a t-shirt, and switch out the jeans for trousers while adding a dinner jacket.

Loafers

A classic shoe and very attractive for the man who doesn’t want his feet caged all the way in. Loafers give men the ability to feel casual without always looking casual. Simply put, they don’t constrict your feet and give men the option of going sockless.

The easiest way to make your casual wear scream luxury. At one time they were looked down upon, however, now they’re so well designed that you might even be able to get away with them at the club. They’re also great for going through airport security. Men who are on the go and don’t necessarily have to dress up can pick up a pair of slip-ons and start stepping.
