Nothing completes an outfit quite like a great pair of shoes. Whether it’s a trusty pair of sleek white sneakers, a chic pair of heels or perhaps your favourite pair of sandals that you bring out the moment the weather gets warm.

To help inspire some new additions to your footwear collection, we have handpicked five pairs of wardrobe staples that won’t go out of style.


When it comes to sandals, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Birkenstocks. The Birkenstock Arizona is a classic style which remains unchanged since 1973 meaning it has well and truly stood the test of time. The iconic, unisex  design can be adjusted to the wearer’s foot with two straps and is the ultimate in comfort and wearability.

For something a little more feminine, we are loving the Essie Sandal from Coach. Featuring a leather strap and Coach’s signature footbed, this beautiful sandal is perfect to slip on with a transeasonal dress or a pair of denim jeans.


The white sneaker is the ultimate street style essential and something you can throw on with pretty much every outfit.

The Finley trainers from Reiss definitely fits the bill when it comes to that perfect pair of white sneakers. Crafted from a smooth white leather, this luxe take on the casual sneaker is best worn with a blazer, t-shirt and jeans for a smart, yet casual look.

Perfect for the workweek or the weekend, the Coupole from Lacoste is the epitome of a relaxed, yet put together look. Made from soft, hand feel nappa leather and Lacoste’s signature branding lightly debossed on the heel  –  this style can be worn with confidence.


Whether it’s to wear on a cold winter’s day when you head back into the office or perhaps a  weekend outing, a pair of black boots will never go astray.

The Molly Suede Shoes Noir from Zadig & Voltaire is a gorgeous suede bootie featuring a comfortable and wearable heel and embroidery detail on the back, taking you effortlessly from day to night.

The David Field boot from Rodd & Gunn is a lace up boot in a military style with toe cap detail. Created from a sturdy leather and featuring a rubber outsole, this boot is lined with shearling and leather, and guaranteed to  keep you warm during the cooler months.


No wardrobe is complete without your go-to pair of smart shoes. The ones that you come back to time and time again and, muchlike a little black dress, should be classified as a wardrobe essential.

The Black High Vamp Leather Heels from Adolfo Dominguez are exactly like your favourite pair of stilettos, but even more special. Crafted from a soft leather, Adolfo Dominguez have  mixed your classic pair of office heels with a high vamp silhouette for a contemporary look.

Ideal for elevating any outfit, the Bay shoes from Reiss have been crafted from a premium leather for longevity and superior comfort. A wearable shoe that can be paired with chinos and a simple white button up or a classic suit for a timeless boardroom style – you really can’t go wrong with this timeless loafer.


Nothing completes a formal ensemble like a statement pair of shoes.

When it comes to formal footwear, we are loving these heeled strappy sandals from Maje. Adding a pop of colour to any look, these bright statement heels feature a double strap and flared high heel which can be paired with your favourite little black dress for a bold look.

The London Black shoe from M.J. Bale is a classic Oxford, the most formal shoe available for menswear. Featuring elegant proportions and stylish toe cap detailing, each shoe goes through 165 production stages over eight weeks to ensure genuine quality and individuality, extending the life of this classic shoe for many years to come.
