Finding a stand out pair of shoes for under $100 can be a challenge. Aside from Steve Madden, there’s not a designer that consistently produces slick looking shoes for under three figures. And Mr. Madden’s designs can be a little out there, plus the construction quality can leave a bit to be desired for.
It’s all about catching sales at the right time (early), when there’s still plenty of size options left. Here’s three pairs from three different well known designers, in plenty of sizes, that should satisfy any of your $100 and under footwear cravings.
Simple shoes are often the best. A lot of guys don’t want any extra stitching, weirdly shaped toes, or anything that would distract from their overall minimalist look. The Calvin Klein Zeke Oxford is as plain yet cool as it gets.
Retailing for almost $130, Kenneth Cole gets unique with a different style of driver. The strap is buckled with a couple of D-rings, making it a detail that stands out but in a good clean way.
Ben Sherman Premier Boot – $99.99
Like the unnatural and impossible lovechild of a Liger and a Mule, the Ben Sherman Premier Boot combines styling from combat boots and wingtips, then adds heavy heel and toe burnishing on top of that. Better proportioned than a similar boot/shoe/thing from ASOS, it’s more than 50% off at just under $100
So if you had to pick a pair, which one would you go with?
