You’re a discerning man—after all, you’re well-travelled and always have a finger on the pulse. You work hard, and you play hard too, and your style is a reflection of that seamlessness. This SS17, Aldo introduces a collection that gives due recognition to that fact. From classic brogues, such as the leather and nubuck derby toe cap Derrade, to the snazzy Chigodda monk straps in denim and suede—the collection cleverly melds style with comfort. Jet-setters especially, will appreciate the Jauquet - with a cognac leather slip-on shaped after the classic American penny loafer and a soft contrast-colour Covetable sole (so called because once you try it, you’ll want to keep wearing it). Together with the suede lace-up Muggli style, which comes in pale ecru, these dashing shoes happily bridge the gap between looking on-point and providing succour to tired feet with their cushy soles.

Consider the occasions when you’ve fussed about which pair of shoes to wear to meet a date, or to head out for lunch with the boys, or better yet, tried to find a pair that will travel well for work and holiday. With Aldo’s SS17 collection, you’ll be able to find the perfect multi-tasking pair. Styles like the denim and suede Uleradien derby, with its textual detail and rich cognac welted sole, easily ace the double-duty approach. Try it with a pair of tailored shorts and an oxford shirt, for a look that’s all summer-in-the-city. Or the aforementioned Jauquet, with its warm, rich tone, pairs especially well with light chinos and a blazer thrown over a plain T-shirt. It’s a smart twist on a style evergreen, and comes in navy suede too, with a lightweight, shock-absorbing sole that has a fresh look without the added heft. Finally, those who prefer a dressier approach might consider Aldo’s slick leather loafers a worthy indulgence. The burnished burgundy-toned Freinia tasseled loafers go great with a light grey suit and navy tie. Or be bold—it is also a style that pairs well with checks and patterns.

So, if you’ve been on the lookout for a pair of shoes that can match your varied lifestyle whilst keeping you looking, and feeling, good, then Aldo’s SS17 collection is right up your street.
