The top men’s shoes and boots that women prefer

When it comes to men’s fashion, women often have a lot to say on the matter. Are you curious to know what catches their eye when it comes to footwear? Do you want to know what they like to see the men in their lives wearing? At Ernest, we regularly meet clients who shop for clothes with a female friend or partner. Therefore, we can confirm in this article which men’s shoes and boots women are most drawn to.

  • Ankle boots that have a refined look

While many women like the rugged appearance of a guy wearing work boots, they prefer (by a long shot) elegant ankle boots for everyday outings. This type of footwear is a must-have for your fall and spring looks. Plus, these boots pair just as well with jeans and chinos as they do with dress pants

If you want to make a smart investment, opt for a black or brown pair with laces and a polished finish that’s either matte or glossy. In addition, be sure to apply a waterproofing treatment to protect your boots on rainy days and keep them in good condition for several seasons.

  • Eye-catching leather or nubuck shoes
Women who have good taste pay attention to the details, which is why they appreciate when men's shoes are a little out of the ordinary. If you want to receive compliments from the women in your entourage (or complete strangers who cross your path), treat yourself to a striking pair of leather or nubuck shoes.


One thing is certain: there’s no shortage of options when it comes to great footwear. Your choices include, among others: 

  • Models that feature intricate detailing (topstitching, patterns)
  • Two-tone shoes that create a stunning contrast
  • One-tone footwear with a lovely textured finish
  • Pairs in bold, eye-catching colours
  • Minimalist shoes with refined craftsmanship

Regardless of the style you prefer, just know that new leather or nubuck shoes always make a good impression with the ladies. At our Ernest boutiques, we advise our clients to match this type of footwear with their pants, socks and belt. To stock up on accessories that’ll enhance your look, visit us today.

  • Immaculate athletic footwear

Are you heading out to run a few errands? For a stylish, everyday look, slip on a pair of sport shoes. Just be careful: while these are a great compromise between sneakers and dress shoes, they still need to be clean and in good condition to gain women’s approval.

In fact, if the sport shoes you wear to the grocery or hardware store aren’t laced up or, worse, are stained (note that this style usually has a white or light sole), you can be sure women will cringe when they see them. If you want to look respectable, make sure your shoes are immaculate.

BONUS: Taking care of your boots and shoes is the key to a polished look

It’s worth repeating: when it comes to men’s footwear, women value cleanliness, style and quality. Even the smallest details can make a big difference. That said, even top-quality footwear can be vulnerable to water, sweat, dust, UV rays and other factors that tarnish their appearance and compromise their comfort. Fortunately, there’s a wide range of products on the market designed to keep your casual boots and dress shoes in good condition.

Additionally, keep in mind that women are attracted to men who take care of their shoes because this tends to reflect how well they take care of themselves in general. Do you want to project an image of sophistication and respectability? Our stores offer a variety of cleaning products, polishes and creams to keep your shoes in impeccable condition. 

Anecdote: The father of Myriam Beaulieu, who is Ernest’s marketing and creative director, scrutinizes the shoes of every candidate he interviews. Simply by looking at a man’s shoes, he can immediately tell if the person neglects himself, even if he’s wearing a new suit. This is definitely something to keep in mind if you’re looking for a job.

Do you need good-quality men’s boots and shoes?

If you’re looking for the perfect shoes or boots and some stylish accessories to complete your look, you can find everything you need in our stores and online boutique. We look forward to helping you find the footwear that will catch the eye of women you want to impress.
