This season take your footwear cues from some of Hollywood’s leading men. They say you should never judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes, now you can do just that with some of the A list’s biggest players. From young guns like Gosling and Pattinson, to classics like Clooney, get the look for less with our silver screen shoe style sampler…

  1. The Worker Boot


As seen on: Ryan Gosling

Get the look: Downing Waxy Tan

No-nonsense, easy-to-wear everyday footwear which is tough enough to survive the most active lifestyles, but well-designed enough to look top notch while doing it. This shoe is masculine, hard-wearing and good-looking, with more rugged charm than 12 Goslings combined.

  1. The Statement Brogue


As seen on: Jack O’Connell

Get the look: Woburn Hi Shine Green

There’s no disputing the timelessness of a classic men’s brogue, but sometimes every man craves something different. This season opt for traditional brogues with a twist for extra style credentials. Our subtly, shiny green Woburns add the ideal amount of quirk,without compromising on traditional class.

  1. The Smart Sneaker


As seen on: Kit Harington

Get the look: Seagram Nubuck Taupe

If they’re good enough for Jon Snow, they’re good enough for us. Keep things laid back with trainers, but stay sharp by opting for a light, leather lace up to achieve this smart-without-trying style.

  1. The Penny Loafer


As seen on: George Clooney

Get the look: Balfour Waxy Bordo

For debonair style you can wear virtually anywhere, penny loafers are prime. Opt for soft suede to stay casual, or go for high shine leather to take it all the way up to 11. Clooney wears his with an added tassel and some dangerously sharp tailoring.


  1. The Monk Strap


As seen on: Matthew McConaughey

Get the look: Cuffs Waxy Black

Don’t know your monk strap from your wing tip? Fear not. All you need to know is that these monk strap kicks a la Mr McConaughey are tried and tested office-to-evening winners: smart, but with that something extra which will make your date’s knees buckle faster than your shoes. Base London’s even sport a decorative hole-punched toe.


  1. The Chelsea Boot


As seen on: Robert Pattinson

Get the look: Thread Greasy Suede Beige

From the Beatles to the Stones, Chelsea boots have been worn by some of the most fashionable icons from the annals of pop culture. Spot on for this season and guaranteed to look good whatever you’re wearing, Chelsea boots are low-maintainance shoes which, frankly, just look cool.
