VITTORE SHOE GIFTING GUIDE
Either you are a Shoe lover, or you know someone who is an aficionado of Good Quality Shoes. The Festive season is the perfect time to gift shoes since you know they would be used right away.
Men don't buy shoes, but actually invest in them; so gifting them a pair of Italian Leather Shoes would be perfect.
He could be in the family or a good friend, shoe tastes vary with everyone. We have compiled a short checklist to look over while deciding the perfect gift for them:
The most common colours in Men's formal Leather Shoes are Black and Tan, while Brown follows not far behind. If you're looking to play it safe and your giftee loves the classic colours, then these would work well. If you know they have a vibrant sense of dressing, then we would recommend Navy (Blue) or Bordo (Red) too.
Leather Shoes are always understood as Winter shoes, which is true most of the time. So we recommend buying formal closed shoes such as Derbys, Oxfords, Monkstraps or Brogues. While Loafers, including moccasins and other slip-ons would be the top picks for the Summer season.
If the giftee has a Classic sense of dressing, and prefers wearing a complete suit or formal dressing sense, then Derbys and Oxfords would suit them well, especially in Black or Brown.
Brogues and Monkstraps are semi-formal shoes and can also be worn with Jeans etc; being more versatile, your gifts could be used by them on a more regular basis.
Loafers would be suitable for casual settings, and could be worn at any time by them, even with shorts in the daytime.
If the shoes being gifted are not comfortable, then they may not be appreciated. Its important to decide whether to buy a shoe with an extra insole padding or without one. Also determining the shape of the shoe as per their foot shape is important too, narrow shoes for broad feet could be an issue.
This is one of the reasons Vittore allows a return/ exchange on shoes to the customers after they purchase the shoes too.
Many people also choose to gift accessories on special occassions, including various items such as Cedar Shoe Trees, Shoe Horns, Shoe Wax or a complete kit that contains them all.
