Colourful Men’s Shoes – 3 Pairing Ideas


Buying shoes in neutral colors is convenient, but at the same time – it’s cutting corners! This season, colorful shoes are the trendiest, also among men. Are you wondering what to pair them with?

The black shoes will always be a safe choice – but isn’t it worth sacrificing a little of that safety for some fun? Playing with colors can be a great adventure! You don’t have to have a gift for combining colors – with our tips, you can create combinations that work, matching contrasting shades and textures. 

Colorful mens shoes are a perfect choice for anyone that wants to stand out with their outfit. This season, the trendiest models include vintage-style sneakers in pastel colors, shiny gold or silver pumps, and Chelsea boots covered with animal patterns. Which one will be your match? Take a look at our outfit suggestions to compare them with your wardrobe and pick the trendy model that fits your needs.

#1 Colorful sneakers

For a long time, sneakers are considered an “ageless” shoe model. We pair them with hoodies and sweatpants but also with more elegant outfits. They add a casual touch to more formal stylizations, making you look more comfortable in your own skin.

Colorful sneakers are trending, but combining them with outfits can be tricky. An all-black outfit with shoes in vibrant shades is always a great match and the safest option. This season, go for mixing pastel and fluo shades – like lime and salmon. Instead of going for Nike or Adidas, it’s worth choosing a brand that offers handmade, personalized shoes created in a zero waste manner. 

#2 Golden or silver pumps

Now, that’s a real deal-breaker when it comes to shoes. Once they’re in your wardrobe, you won’t want to wear anything else! And who said that shiny metal shaded pumps can be worn only on special occasions? Combining them with a pair of regular jeans or neutral-colored chinos and a sweater with a vintage touch will give an eye-catching effect. 

There is a tendency to combine silver with cold colors and gold with warm ones. However, we recommend choosing the opposite approach. Silver will look stunning with sunny yellow or burgundy, and gold – with dark bottle-green or dove color. 

#3 Animal-print Chelsea boots

Chelsea boots are the most popular autumn model among both men and women, and most likely they’ll continue to be in the future. However, every season they change a little. This season, the trendiest Chelsea boots have square toes and eye-catching animal prints. What’s worth noting, these don’t imitate the natural ones – instead, they have bold colors, like lime or red. With what to combine them? Anything, really. The only condition is a neutral color palette. Search for beige, black, grey, brownish clothes in your wardrobe – colorful shoes with animal prints will harmonize with such shades.
