So you think your boyfriend could use some new shoes for his birthday gift? Well, which type of shoes do you want to get him? There are essentially a many different styles of men’s shoes, but of course, nowhere near the amount of styles that we girls have to choose from. To break it down very simply, these are the few major categories of men’s shoes: oxford shoes which lace up, loafers which slip on and have no laces, sandals which can be sporty or dressy, lifestyle shoes which usually feature a rubber sole and can accompany many different styles of clothing, sports shoes, casual shoes, ankle boots, and why not mention cowboy boots as well! So depending on what type of work your boyfriend is into, and what he likes to do on his spare time, you may have to choose what type of shoe is best for him for his birthday. Although men usually don’t have as many pairs of shoes as women do, they can still certainly use multiple pairs instead of only always wearing their sneakers. Whichever shoe you get him for his birthday gift, I’m sure he will love and look good in.
