Wedding Shoe Guide: What shoes should the Groom wear?

Once your custom suit or tuxedo is nailed down for your Big Day, make sure the rest of your ensemble matches and makes a lasting impression. All eyes will be on you, so keep your shoe game as strong as your suit game! Our showroom is complete with sizers and various styles of Magnanni shoes for you to see up close. Simply order the perfect pair and they will be ready for you at your first fitting. Here’s our Wedding Shoe Guide:

The Black Tie Groom:


Patent Leather Tuxedo Shoe

Patent leather is the most classic and traditional black tie shoe with a bright shine for the picture perfect wedding photos.


Patent Leather Loafer

A sleek and shiny option to accompany your tuxedo.


Velvet Loafer

Less formal than patent leather, but statement footwear no doubt. Velvet loafers look best with a velvet or patterned dinner/smoking jacket.


Patent Leather Loafer (with Grosgrain band)

A slight twist on classic tradition, this version has an eye catching grosgrain band for detail

Not Black Tie? Shoes for the Suited Groom:


Dark Brown Oxford

The most versatile dress shoe works for your all non-black suiting: navy, blue, grey, light grey, khaki, or green suits. All of the shoes shown here are great additions to your footwear style after your Big Day.


Dark Brown Monk Strap

If you’re looking for a formal shoe option that’s more eye-catching than an oxford, the Monk strap is for you. Single or double strap, it’s up to you, they both garner compliments.


Honey Cap Toe Oxford

Honey, cognac, or tan leather shoes are great for warmer weather, outdoor weddings with lighter color palettes.


The Leather Sneaker

For the envelope pushing Groom, try a fun sneaker that will complement your perfectly tailored custom suit. Or maybe just put them on for dancing!
