Wing Tips: A Gentlemen’s Guide to Shoes
Lace-ups or loafers? Leather or suede? We asked shoe designer Nirali Ruparel of Archilles' Heel to decode complicated wardrobe choices.
“Most Indians tend to stick to formal black lace-ups. But the thing about men’s shoes is that they are not restricted to black and brown. There is much to experiment with in terms of colour. This season, I would say deep emerald makes a good buy. Dusty blue shoes should be another wardrobe staple. However, if somebody wants to go all out and experiment with bright orange, why should anybody stop you?" the designer explains.
