I’ve spent my entire life in canvas sneakers, but I’ll throw on a pair of black leather lace-ups with a suit if the occasional formal event crops up. It’s one of my major failings as a writer about men’s style: No matter how many times I’ve advocated for other guys to purchase a pair of simple brown leather lace-ups, I’ve never actually pulled the trigger myself. That might all change today, after seeing these cap-toe oxfords by Antonio Maurizi. They’re one of the cleanest pairs you’ll ever lay eyes on — ideal with a navy or charcoal suit, with gray flannel pants and a geezer sportcoat, or roughed up with your favorite broken-in jeans or khakis. Simple versatility at its best.
