Despite the many different ways of wearing jeans nowadays, they still are practical and not formal. So, while you might wear formal leather shoes, such as Oxfords, to work, they might look out of place next to your favourite denim.
Which is why Derbies are a much safer bet. Generally featuring a chunkier profile, Derbies are the perfect way to counterbalance your denim jeans. a black Darby shoe can still look formal and look muddle with mid-blue jeans. So, if in doubt, tan Derbies are the way to go.
More formal than trainers, brogues are a relatively casual smart shoe to wear with your denim jeans. As a general style rule, brogues with minimal details look more formal. Chunky ones with holes punched in will always skew towards casual. Colour is another factor to consider. A failsafe option? While tan brogues do not work with tailoring – stop doing this – they work with smart-casual denim in an indigo shade.
Unless you are trying very hard, it is impossible to go wrong wearing minimalist trainers. Sleek styles will go with pretty much any denim, except bootcut. Remember to keep your proportions in mind. As well as that, the combination of skinny jeans with long, thin high-tops can make your feet look clownish.
If wearing trainers that are white, the main concern is keeping them clean. No matter what you wear with them, dirty trainers will never look good.
Another shoe style to pair with your denim that you might not have thought of is the old penny loafer. A versatile Ivy League staple, it has found its way into modern wardrobes. However, you should tread carefully.
The low vamp of penny loafers worn with a wide leg opening can make you look stubby and short. Instead, go for jeans that are tapered or cropped.
