Wedding Shoes For The Modern Groom

When it comes to the big wedding day, all eyes are often on the bride — but what about the groom? He must stand on the alter in front of an entire audience, too.

To complement our guide to the best wedding shoes for her, we’ve rounded up the freshest, most modern shoes for the modern groom available now.

The spring market offers a number of unconventional takes on dress styles, which are reflective of the modern groom who’s looking for footwear that reflects his style on the special day.

The key is to be unafraid of having fun with the shoes. One can break free from the traditional black laceups and experiment with plaid loafers or suede leathers if it matches the suit or tuxedo.

Luxury brands like Sergio Rossi, Santoni and Berluti take on the lace-up dress shoe with unexpected finishes, such as burnished or colored leathers.

Affordable options come from J.Crew’s classic black cap-toe oxford as well as Carlos Santos’ navy loafer (yes, loafers can be worn for weddings, though they’re typically reserved for summer nuptials).
