Men's Formal Leather Shoes
The first introduction of shoes, in general, is said to be at least 40,000 years old. The origin of official shoes for men, however, is often credited to English culture and is said to have originated in Scotland.

They had side slits that evolved with time and were styled into side laces and eventually to the top of the foot.

Can you wear formal shoes with a casual outfit?
You can wear them if you can pull it off well! You can definitely try to pair your formal shoes with something casual like jeans. The key is to keep it balanced. For instance, baggy and loose pants won’t give the best appeal with formal footwear. Go for something slim or regular fitted instead which has a tapered look. Go for shoes that have more casual appeal than those on the more formal end. For example, Derby can be a better option than Oxford style formal shoes.
Can formal shoes be lace less?
Shoelaces are claimed to have originated in ancient times around 2000 B.C. in Greek and Roman cultures. They have definitely evolved a lot over these centuries and for good. A shoe with shoelaces can safely be teamed up with a suit and trousers. Lace less shoes can go with business casuals for once but still fall on the more casual end of the spectrum. It’s always wise and safe to keep a laced pair of Black or brown formal shoes tidied up for formal events.
