Footwear has been worn for centuries to protect the feet from the harsh elements of the environment. Today’s shoes offer more than just protection. They are a fashion statement and an indispensable part of every person’s wardrobe. Casual shoes are those that can be used for more laidback or casual dress codes. Unlike formal dress shoes, casual shoes exist in a variety of colors, styles and materials. Casual shoes may either be lace-ups or slip-ons and one can chose to buy rope shoelaces or flat ones, according to the style they prefer.
Casual situations allow for the use of slip-on shoes which are simpler to take off and put on, and can often be worn without using socks. While generally considered the more formal of the two, casual shoes with shoe laces do exist and can range from the classic saddle shoes that are nearly identical to formal “Oxfords”, to more laid back canvas sneakers which can be used for sports and other non-formal settings. They are not restricted to the more formal color palette and can come in a variety of colors, with canvas sneakers being available with the option of having more than one color present per shoe.
Whichever style the buyers chooses to use, first they must measure their feet properly to purchase the right size shoe. This is more difficult to do if the purchase is to be done online, as there person will not be able to try it on for size. If the buyer is going into a shop, they can get their feet professionally measured and fitted into the right shoe. Since there are so many styles, some may be wider or longer than others, creating a little variation in the fitting. Measurement many also vary from brand to brand, hence proper precaution must be taken to try the shoe on for size.
