“Belt shoes match” – for men that is one of the most popular searches. Whether it is brown shoes with black pants or dressing shoes with jeans, men are looking for answers to their questions about how to coordinate their shoes and belts. Here is our advice… for dressier outfits, where you're wearing a suit or dress pants, matching belts and shoes is important - and leather finish, if possible.

For casual outfits, like khakis, chinos, or jeans, you'll want to make sure to wear a complimentary color from the same color family. You have a bit more flexibility, but we still do not recommend wearing brown shoes with a black belt. We also like to keep belt material and finish more casual. For more unusual color shoes, we recommend: anything in the gray and red family we'd pair with a black belt and anything in blues and greens, go the brown route.
