I’m Goodoowang who’s passionate about bringing Korean Handmade Shoes up to world class level. Why is your nickname Goodoowang? My instagram ID is Goodoowang (King of Shoes)
and I just use that as my nickname. Today’s video is going to be about dress shoes and matching other clothes with them. First of all, how many types of shoes are you going to introduce to us? I am going to tell you 5 major types of dress shoes. And advice on how to dress up
with the shoes of your choice. Right? Let’s begin. What type of dress shoes
are you going to introduce the first? First, I’ll introduce lace up shoes. Lace up shoes are simply shoes with laces. These are the ones we normally call dress shoes. They are the most basic types of dress shoes and matches well with formal clothes. The leather on the top side of the foot is called “vamp”. If the vamps are not separated and connected as one, we call them oxford shoes. If they are separated and covers from both sides, we call them Derby shoes. Some people often call dress shoes derby shoes, but now I see that they are totally different. Yes they are. If lace up shoes don’t have any design in the toe part of the shoes, they are called plain toe shoes. If they have straight horizontal line designs, they are called straight Tip shoes. If you see a W or a bird wing shape on the shoes, they are wingtip shoes. The designs created with holes are called brogues. What is the second type? The next one is monk strap. Monk strap shoes are refined and people choose to wear them because of the unique fashionable designs. According to the number of straps on the shoes, they can be called single monk or double monk shoes. Most young people nowadays prefer double monk shoes. There are triple monk shoes, but they have many decorations on. People don’t wear them often. It feels like it is too much There are people who like them, so it is up to customers’ choices. What is the third type? Next, I’m going to explain about loafers. Loafers are shoes with not laces or straps. Loafers with tassels are called tassel loafers. This bell shaped decoration is called tassel. If there are bands on the top side of the foot, they are called penny loafers. There is a story behind these shoes. Penny loafers are shoes that English students wore a lot. English students would put pennies under the bands, so nowadays they are called penny loafers. What is the fourth type? The next type of shoes we are going to look at are boots. As you know, shoes with long ankle are called boots. They can be separated to many types, so I’ll introduce some of the most popular ones. The boots with bands on both side of the foot are called Chelsea boots. They are the most common types of boots. The next one is chukka boots or ankle boots. They are boots that slightly cover the ankle bone,
and are told that they were worn during polo matches. Walker boots or military boots look similar to the boots that soldiers wear. Korean combat boots look like this. As I look at this pair of boots,
it reminds me of the days in the military. (We were both served in the ROTC.) Which type of shoes are these? These are called clippers and people wear these to mix the casual and formal feelings. The top side of the shoes look like formal dress shoes, but has a casual looking sole. People usually wear them with casual clothes. From now, we are going to tell you how to match your clothes with the shoes we introduced today. We have four types of dress shoes here.
Which dress code is the best for each one? I should first explain that the shapes of shoes are determined by the lasts. It is the frame of each shoe designs. Shoes are made by wrapping leather around the last, So you can say that the shape of the last is the shape of the final product. These shoes look long, made with comparatively long last. If you are going to wear these kind of shoes,
wear pants that do not show your ankle. Or else, your feet will look too long. Be careful of the length of your pants.
Your pants should at least slightly cover your ankle. For people who wear shortened formal pants, these round tip shoes might look more natural. As I explained earlier, lace up shoes and monk strap shoes are for formal dress codes. If you want to buy a pair of shoes for both casual and formal clothes, I recommend buying loafer shoes. Loafers match well with suits, slacks,
and even short pants. Penny loafers match suits better than any other shoes. Tassel loafers are more appropriate for casual clothes, so if you want to wear them with suits, you can choose a shortened slacks
to give a funky cute charm. Color is another important thing
when matching shoes and clothes. The basic is to wear black shoes for black suits. If you really don’t want black shoes, wine colored shoes can be alternatives. For black or dark navy clothes go well with black or wine colored shoes. Dark brown colors match with any colors, like navy or charcoal, except for black clothes. Navy colored suits or clothes match dark brown dress shoes. If you match these light brown shoes to dark clothes, the shoes will stick out too much. Charcoal or check patterned suits, and even casual clothes go well with light brown colored shoes. If you want to go even further, match the color of your belt and your shoes. It will match really well and look like you’ve really dressed up. So, we’ve talked about different dress shoes and how to dress up accordingly.
