Step Out With Confidence

To take denim to the next level, you need to be well shod.

Use these style strategies to make your jeans compatible with any kind of footwear.

Dress Shoes

Slim, dark jeans work best with brogues but aren’t meant to fit like suit pants. Your jeans should rest on top of your shoes, but if you have extra length, a 2,5 cm cuff is fine.



When wearing loafers or slip-on sneakers, you want a slim pair of jeans that ends just below your ankle. One or two 2cm cuffs will look casual without seeming sloppy.


Casual Boots

Straight-leg jeans are too wide for low-profile shoes. Go with casual boots. You can roll up the cuffs, but stacking the jeans on your shoes will look more rugged.



High sneakers or chukka boots should be worn with a slim-straight jean – they won’t hide them. Let the hem sit on top of your ankles or roll them for casual flair.
