 Looking for the best men's wedding shoes currently on the market? You've come to the right place. Today, we're going to unveil the best wedding shoes for men. By the end of this guide you'll feel confident in choosing your shoes for the big day.

Many grooms overlook the importance of their footwear on wedding day. Of course, you want to look great and put your best foot forward. But more importantly, you want to stay comfortable and keep your feet fresh over the course of the long, eventful day. Fortunately, you won't have to stress about what you're going to wear any longer. The experts at Del Toro are here to help!

Why You Need the Best Men's Wedding Shoes for Your Big Day

Your wedding shoes are more important than you might think. Not only because you want to look your best and leave a lasting impression - but because they play a huge role in your comfort on the big day. Here is why you cannot overlook the importance of selecting the proper footwear for the big day.

  • Aesthetics: Your wedding shoes are going to be visible in all your photos. And, they'll be cemented in the minds of your guests. You'll want to choose a pair that looks great with your suit and compliments your overall aesthetic - while showing off a bit of your personality - all at once. Easier said than done, as you can imagine. Fortunately, we're here to help.
  • Comfort: You don't want your feet to hurt during such an important day. Choosing the wrong footwear can turn your wedding evening into a nightmare as you just look forward to getting out of your shoes. 

There are plenty of other reasons you might want to choose the best men's wedding shoes, too. But these are two of the primary factors to keep in mind. Now, let's talk about what makes the best wedding shoes for men...

What Makes the Best Wedding Shoes for Men? Things To Keep in Mind

There are a few key factors you'll want to keep in mind when shopping for your wedding shoes. We've gone ahead and listed a few of them below:

Fit

You'll want to be sure your shoes fit well and are comfortable. Be sure to try them on well in advance of your wedding date so that you can make changes if necessary. Remember - you're going to be in these shoes for well over 12 hours depending on how late into the evening your party goes. If you sacrifice quality to save some money, you'll pay for it on the day of your wedding.

Customization Capabilities

Many grooms choose to customize their wedding shoes. This is a great way to add a personal touch to your look - and when you wear your shoes for future events you'll look back fondly on your wedding. There are plenty of different ways to customize your shoes - from adding a monogram to choosing a unique color or material. We've seen many grooms get their last name and the date on their shoes - along with the family crest. The possibilities are endless.

Budget

Wedding shoes can range in price from affordable to high-end. Be sure to set a budget and stick to it! Now, with that said, you need to be careful about this. If you compromise on quality just to fit your budget, you'll end up disappointed looking back on that decision. That's because you get what you pay for when it comes to footwear.

This is your wedding - something you hopefully only get to experience once. You deserve the best of the best - whatever that is to you. So, try to stay within your budget - but don't shop based on price alone.

So, What Are the Best Wedding Shoes for Men?

Now that we've gone over what makes the best men's wedding shoes, it's time to introduce you to our picks! There are plenty of options for men who want a simple, subtle wedding shoe. But the best choice for those who want something that shows off more of their personality is Del Toro Footwear.

We've curated a wide selection of stunning styles to accommodate your tastes - no matter what they may be.

From Italian loafers for men to Italian slippers for men, we've got a wide array of stunning, stylish wedding shoes for you to choose from. You can explore our full collection today and see for yourself. Or, keep reading as we unveil a few of our personal favorite selections. We'll start with something more traditional - our loafers.

Del Toro Italian Loafers

If you're looking for the best wedding shoes for men - and prefer a more traditional look - our luxury Italian loafers for men are an excellent choice. They're handmade in Italy by expert craftsmen using the finest materials available. The end result is a true work of art - and one that you'll never want to take off. They feel as comfortable on the first wear as the hundredth wear. You'll stay fresh through the evening with a rubber sole that adds traction and all-day comfort. And, we've included a leather lining and cushioned leather footbed for just a bit more added comfort.

The classic leather option is the preferred choice among grooms who want a luxurious, classy look. But, our suede and velvet loafers are a unique choice for men who want something a bit more flashy. Along with the materials we offer, you can choose from a range of colors - Grigio, Black, and Brown, are the classic choices. But, we've also curated some outside-of-the-box colorways for you to explore - like Petrol, Birch, Cognac, Sage, Adriatic, Rust, Sandstone, and a whole lot more. You can choose tassels if you want to add a bit more flair, too.

Customizing these loafers is easy. You can do it yourself right from the product page - but, we're happy to assist you in making your vision a reality. While these are definitely the best wedding shoes for men, you'll find yourself sporting these loafers long after the wedding has come and gone. They are a great choice for the office, the boardroom, date night - you name it. Just check out our guide on how to style loafers for inspiration!

All things considered, our Italian loafers are an undeniable choice for anyone seeking the best wedding shoes for men. That’s why you’ll find them in our collection of velvet tuxedo shoes for men. But you can rock these even if you’re not looking to wear loafers with a tuxedo. They look great with more casual suit choices as well.

But, maybe you want something with a bit more personality. If so, our Italian slippers are a wonderful choice.

Del Toro Italian Velvet Slippers

When it comes to the loafers vs slippers debate, we choose to play Switzerland - staying neutral, as we absolutely love both styles. With that said, we can't deny the simple fact that our men's velvet slippers are the best choice for anyone wanting shoes with more charisma and personality on their wedding day.

Once you get your hands on them and see them in person, you'll know you made the right choice. Like our loafers, these slippers are handmade in Italy under strict standards to ensure a stunning, comfortable slipper you'll love for years to come. We've also designed it with similar comfort-enhancing measures so you can stay light on your feet all day long. And, these slippers fit true to size - no need to play any guessing games about how Italian shoes fit!

Simple black and brown loafers are a great choice for those who want to keep things subtle. Or, match the color of your slippers with other elements of your wedding theme. We make it easy with blue, merlot, green, cream, and baby blue colorways. Across all of these, you'll enjoy effortless customization - whether you're shopping for yourself or the entire wedding party. And, you’ll find yourself sporting these long after the wedding too. Just read our guide on how to wear velvet slippers for inspiration after the fact.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of the Best Wedding Shoes for Men

By now, you should have a good idea of what the best wedding shoes for men are. When you stick with Del Toro, you're in good hands. But, maybe you're still on the fence or want a few more pointers before you make your purchase. If so, keep the following factors in mind:

  • Make sure your shoes match the rest of your wedding. Consider not just your overall wedding theme - but your suit. And, consider the footwear your groomsmen will be wearing. It's always best to get the groomsmen and the groom matching shoes - which is something we can help you with.
  • Break your shoes in before the big day. If you wear your shoes for the first time at your wedding, they could be too stiff. This typically isn't a problem when you stick with Del Toro - as our footwear is comfortable right out of the box. Nevertheless, we recommend wearing your shoes around the house a few times leading up to wedding day. Learn more about how to make wedding shoes more comfortable in our blog.
  • Don't wait until the last minute! Wedding planning is hectic enough without having to worry about finding shoes at the last minute. So, make sure to shop for your wedding shoes well in advance.
