The 6 Best Men’s Shoes That Aren’t Brown

Guys are taking a cue from their female counterparts these days with footwear that experiments with color. Whether you’re shopping around for a casual boot or more formal wingtip, forget about basic brown and take a walk on the wild side in footwear in red, blue and gray.

Don’t think you’re quite ready to make the color move. Think again. While the color palette might be somewhat unconventional, the styles remain classic and include Chelsea boots and hikers to a pair of skate shoes.

Here, FN has shopped the market for you, curating a wardrobe of styles that put the emphasis on color.
