Sometimes you need casual shoes, sometimes dress or formal shoes. We've categorized our shoes into collections to fit various lifestyles, from active to dress, work-oriented or casual.
The "Dress" Lifestyle is one we generally reserve for high-class shoes that you could wear to a job interview or a classy party. Leather oxfords with Bal or Blucher lace often fall into this category, as do women's high heel slip-ons with closed toes. We also often limit the shoes we put in this category to blacks, browns, and earth-tones.
We stock a variety of lace & slip-on dress shoes and dress belts. If you are looking for a specific brand of Dress Shoes, you’ll find a large selection of the finest shoes from Alden, Allen Edmonds, Cole Haan, Johnston and Murphy, Santoni and others.
The "Dress Casual" Lifestyle is for shoes that a businessman/businesswoman might wear to a normal day at the office or to a friendly, semi-casual party. Leather loafers and high heels with open toes generally fall into this category, and a broader selection of colors than the dress lifestyle.
The "Casual" Lifestyle is a very broad category that includes general sneakers, boat shoes, sandals, loafers, anything for day-to-day wear, or shoes for comfort that don't fit into the other categories.
For Women, the Apex and Durea brands are dedicated mainly to women's casual shoes, including sandals & sneakers. Alternatively, Aetrex provides a variety of stylish High Top Boots for the wetter & colder seasons.
We directly provide a nice selection of high class Sherman Brothers Private Label Dress Casual loafers and Driving Moccasins.
The "Athletic" Lifestyle is for hiking, running, boat shoes, sandals, sport shoes, and similar active footwear.
The "Work" Lifestyle is for shoes with safety features; steel toes, electricity resistance, non-slip-soles, etc. Bates Work shoes and Wolverine boots always provides a nice selection of Work-Ready footwear, whether you're looking for steel toes, waterproof, or insulated shoes & boots.
If you live in the Pennsylvania area, come in to our store for a custom fitting of Red Wing Work & Worx by Red Wing work shoes, with a variety of available features including electrical hazard protection, slip resistances, metarsal guards, and more. Red Wing is committed to such an exact fit that they ask us not to sell these brands online. On the other hand, if the specialized safety requirements are less stringent, Red Wing Heritage does provide a selection of Work Shoes with steel toes & waterproofing.
Our "Formal" Lifestyle is reserved for very formal footwear that would be appropriate for a wedding, funeral, or fancy formal party. Generally black suede, patent leather, or high-gloss shoes. Women's formal might include dark colored pumps with a moderate heel and a closed toe.
Our Exotic Lifestyle shoes & Belts are made from a variety of hard-to-obtain materials, from American Bison to Sharkskin. If you are looking for a specific brand of Exotic Shoe, you’ll find a large selection from Santoni, Mezlan, and a few others.
From the Exotic Life Style category, you may browse for shoes made from the Alligator, Crocodile, Lizard, Ostrich, Sharkskin, Bison and Silk. You may also preview our entire Exotic Shoe Collection.
Medical & Orthopedic shoes are essential sometimes, and the Drew brand shoes has a number of specially constructed shoes designed to be comfortable despite diabetic & medical concerns, or just if you're on your feet all the time for work.
