SHOES - Oxblood Top Picks

Oxblood is a rich burgundy colour that can give you the perfect opportunity to cast your black or brown shoes to one side for a while.

The great thing about oxblood is that although it means introducing some colour, it's not too far away from a dark brown. That means you won't feel like you're wearing something that stands out too much for the office for example. Oxblood accessories are a subtle way to take on the trends and there is also plenty of fashion around in the same sort of hues too. Picking out a colour in a striped scarf for example will tie your look together perfectly.

I've selected some of my favourite oxblood shoes available at Spartoo...
If you're a simple man then these plain shoes by Ben Sherman are a great choice. The coordinating laces and warm-toned sole and heel make them an easy option.

Prefer boots? These Barracuda brogue detail boots are a great choice. At £341 they're a bit of an investment, but it's the right place to put your money - in a pair of hard-wearing boots that will last and last.

Trend-setters will love these shoes by Allen Edmonds. The tassel detail wins you extra style points and they'd look great with a smart suit. 

Loafers have had a much more stylish profile of late and wearing them in oxblood can only add to the fashion appeal. The lower front of this Lumberjack shoe means your sock choice should be a pair that coordinates or ones which are worth showing off.
Want the best of both worlds? I love the contrast colours on this two-tone pair by Swear. The design is smart enough for wearing with a suit too so great for work or weddings.
