There’s no time like a new year to raise your shoe game. You already know that people take note of how you dress. And that's why, it always pays to look your best in your business and social circles; so put your best foot forward.

Irrespective of whether your shoe wardrobe is dapper or yet to fulfil its potential, there’s room for all of us to upgrade our style game. 

So if you're looking to take your shoe game to a whole new level in 2019, Anatomic & Co has outlined 5 shoe styles that will help you get through the year in sophisticated style. 

The Brogue

The brogue is an ideal smart shoe for every season. The intricate design and perforated holes in the brogue make this a versatile and smart shoe. 

If you’re looking to get more use out of your brogue, try opting for a brown pair, such as the Charles II Touch Bronze. This style will work for both formal and casual occasions.

While most brogues are quite a heavy piece of footwear, this pair by Anatomic & Co is lightweight and flexible, thanks to their soft leather uppers and rubber gel soles. This means you can wear them all day long without your feet getting tired.

The Chelsea Boot

The perfect combination with tailored jeans, the Chelsea boot is another classic style that can be worn through every season.

For a more casual pair, you can try out something like the Cardoso Vintage Navy. This boot is perfect for teaming with a pair of casual jeans and a simple tee for a day out.

For a more formal pair of Chelsea boots then take a look at the Natal Floater Black. The smooth black leather gives them an instant formal feel whilst still being stylish.

The Loafer

A winner during warmer seasons, the classic loafer can be worn for almost any occasion and work well.

Over recent years, the loafer has crept its way up to the more formal stakes and we now see it as both a formal and casual piece of footwear.

When it comes to choosing a loafer, there are a couple styles to choose from, depending on your preference.


Trainers have become a staple item of every man’s wardrobe, and are now one of the most popular items of clothing around.

Trainers are the best part of a casual outfit and with them being such a big part of fashion; you need to style them well.

A smart-casual lightweight leather trainer, such as the Classico Touch Anil, is classy in every way and will form the main part of your outfit - so you need keep the rest of your outfit pretty basic and the attentions on your feet.

The Boat shoe

While it’s unlikely you’ll find yourself wearing a pair during winter (but there’s nothing stopping you), the boat shoe is a summer delight.

These slip-ons are as easy to wear as trainers or sandals, but look a little sharper and can be worn with slightly dressier clothes.

Boat shoes come in a wide variety of colours these days, so the choice is yours.


Classic shoes are the way forward for the man who is looking to upgrade his style. Most stylish men on the planet will own most, if not all, of the shoe styles mentioned above. So grab a pair and put your best foot forward in 2019.
