Because buying shoes for every outfit you own is an expensive exercise (and we’re yet to find a guy who enjoys shoe shopping), it’s worth it to invest in a decent pair that will not only go the distance, but will look good with pretty much anything in your wardrobe. But which pair will do the job? MH Digital Ed, Nadim Nyker took up the challenge and wore the same pair of boots on three very different occasions. The result? Take a look below and see for yourself.

On The Town

“I wore these for a night out with the boys. Denim on denim is always a win when going out. And what a way to make these boots stand out. The boots are easily dressed up with some striking denims and gave me some serious confidence.”

Ed’s tip: If you going to wear double denim, contrast is key – make sure the denims are different shades. We like how the light-coloured jeans make the brown boots pop.

Around The Braai

“The colour of the boots adds versatility to any outfit. I chose these light green jeans and finished the look with a comfortable brown-checkered shirt. Perfect for a braai with friends over the weekend – my favourite thing to do.”

Ed’s tip:  Cuffing or tucking your jeans is a good way for showing off an ankle or mid-calf boot.

At The Office

“Who knew I could wear these boots to a meeting? Not only was I comfortable at the office, but they made me feel much taller and added a rugged take on the go-to shirt and blazer.”

Ed’s tip: The versatile silhouette of the boot makes is feel at home anywhere, at the office or a first date.
