Advice for buying quality mens dress shoes in Australia
If you are looking to buy a pair of mens dress shoes shoes online in Australia, there are many websites and online shoe shops selling many different types and styles of shoes. The issue is most of these sites such as The Iconic and Style Tread sell cheap $99 to $149 pairs of mens shoes that are made of synthetic materials or low grade leather. Shoes for these prices will last you 5 to six months if you are lucky before they start to fall apart. The old saying "you get what you pay for" is a very good phrase to remember when it comes to buying mens leather shoes. There is a reason that Italian or Spanish made mens dress shoes cost more money. The Spanish and Italians are renowned for making quality mens shoes and that is because they use proper calf skin leathers that are full grain and they make their shoes using leather soles not synthetics such as rubber.
If you have to wear dress shoes everyday to work then it is important to spend a bit of money and get a decent pair. You are going to be on your feet all day so not only do you want to have a pair of shoes that is going to be comfortable but you want them to last and of course to look good. All it all very well being able to buy a pair of cheap Chinese dress shoes for $129 but if they only last you for 6 months then you will have to buy another pair. If you buy a quality pair of European made dress shoes they will last you 2 or 3 years or even longer depending how well you look after them.
There is another saying when it comes to shoes - a $100 dollar pair of shoes will last 6 months a $200 pair of shoes 2 years and a $500 pair of shoes a lifetime! Now not all of us can afford to spend $500 on a pair of shoes but in Australia to generally get a pair of decent European say Spanish, Italian or English made shoes should cost between $250 to $350. Sometimes you can get them for less if the shop is having a mens dress shoe sale.
