What Shoes to Wear with Jeans

Time was, selecting one’s daily footwear was simply a matter of matching your shoes to your bag. Now, the true fashion aficionado goes one step better. Pairing shoes with the myriad cuts and crops of jeans is no mean feat (or should that be feet?) – however, with these simple style formulas, it’s easier than you think.

Flat Out

It goes without saying that timeless loafers will work wonders with everything. However, when it comes to denim, the pièce de résistance pairing has to be boyfriend jeans. By leaning into the look’s masculine nuances, their relaxed silhouette will amplify your footwear’s androgynous sophistication ten-fold. Just add a Breton stripe and a red lip, and call yourself Parisian. Voilà!

Summer Steps

Your two best friends through the warmer months: white jeans and off-duty slides are the sweetest style marriage this side of summer. Palette-wise, keep things earthy and natural on the footwear front à la Loewe to offset your denim to perfection.

Ankles Aweigh

Ankle boots may be our footwear go-to – but, easy with every kind of denim they are not. In terms of style pairings, the cream of the crop has to be kick-flare jeans, frayed at the hem for added off-duty ease. Aim for a length that sits just south (about a thumb’s width) of the top of the boot. This season, the chunkier the tread, the better.

Primed Not Prim

Oh, heels, how we’ve missed you! With the promise of nights out-out looming ever closer, we’re ready for party shoes aplenty. While your footwear does the talking (or dancing), an artfully distressed pair of jeans will bring cool insouciance to the scene – a measured balance of dressed up and down.

Good Sport

Even the staunchest of sneaker naysayers couldn’t fail to be swayed by the latest must-haves coming out of Lanvin, Balenciaga et al. Strictly not for gym wear, these cult kicks can be elevated to elegant territory by allying them up with second-skin skinny jeans, which make for the perfect juxtaposition to your sole’s XXL measurements.
