Choosing The Best Shoes For Prom

Though it may not be obvious at first glance, footwear plays a crucial role in completing any kind of prom look.

Well chosen footwear can even be the final “finishing touch” that brings an entire outfit together, adding the essential final layer of sophistication and elegance to complete your look.

As with suits and tuxedos, choice of footwear can also reflect one’s personal style and attention to detail. Opting for Oxfords or Derbys, for example, might show a preference for timeless elegance or a keen eye for quality.

Choosing loafers on the other hand may signify a more nonchalant, relaxed personality, or an eye for more modern, flashier styles.

Your footwear might be easy to overlook, but it’s an absolutely integral part of a prom outfit, and it almost always contributes a huge amount to the overall look and feel of your ensemble.

So, when preparing your look for prom, always remember to choose your footwear wisely and style it effectively with the rest of your outfit.

Need help deciding on what kind of shoes you should wear for prom? Check out our in-depth explanations for each kind of popular prom footwear style:

Wearing Men's Loafers For Prom

Loafers are another more modern and popular choice for formal occasions and prom. Known for their ease of wear and classic design, loafers can add a comfortable, yet sophisticated, touch to your prom attire. 

Loafers are characterized by their laceless design, which allows for easy slipping on and off. This feature, combined with their sleek and polished appearance, makes them a versatile choice for a variety of formal and semi-formal outfits.

Offering a relaxed balance of style, versatility, and comfort, loafers are a great option and whether you’re dancing the night away or just posing for photos, and when styled correctly they can definitely add a lot to your outfit.

Wearing Men's Oxfords For Prom

Oxfords are a classic choice for almost any kind of formal occasion, and they’ll definitely add a touch of elegance to your prom outfit. They are characterized by their easily identifiable closed lace, where the shoelace eyelet tabs are attached under the vamp. This subtle design gives the shoes a sleek and streamlined appearance, making them a perfect match for formal attire.

With their polished finesse and timeless design, Oxfords can complement a variety of suits and tuxedos, from the traditional black to more modern, flashier styles. They are versatile and can be paired with different colors and materials, making them an always popular choice for prom.

Brown Cap-Toe Oxford Lace-Up

Comfort is also always something to consider before making the choice to wear Oxfords. Prom nights can often involve a lot of dancing, moving around, and standing, so it’s crucial to ensure that the shoes you pick are comfortable to wear for extended periods.

Many of our Oxford shoe styles come with cushioned insoles which are designed to provide comfort without compromising style or sophistication.

Wearing Men's Derbys For Prom

Derbys are another excellent choice for formal occasions, including prom. Unlike Oxfords, Derby shoes feature an open lacing system where the shoelace eyelet tabs are sewn on top of the vamp, instead of underneath it like with an Oxford. This design gives them a slightly more relaxed and versatile look compared to Oxfords, making them suitable for both formal and semi-formal attire.

At prom, Derby shoes can add a touch of sophistication to your outfit. They pair well with a variety of suits and can complement both traditional and contemporary styles. Their open lacing system allows for a bit more room in the shoe, which can be beneficial for those with wider feet or those who value comfort over strict formality.

Cognac Classic Wingtip Derby Shoes

As with Oxfords, comfort is a crucial factor to consider for prom nights, which often involves a lot of dancing or standing.

Derby shoes are known for being slightly more breathable than Oxfords thanks to their open lace, but less so than most styles of loafer. Derbys’ combine a spacious design with a high-key style that doesn’t compromise on sophistication, but still might be less comfortable during longer periods of dancing or standing.
