Shoes are the most underrated part of any outfit. While it’s easy to step out in the same old sneakers day after day, working some boots, loafers, or heels into the mix can go a long way. Here are a few pairs we liked this week.

Harrison Arranz, second-year engineering

Harrison’s oxfords from Aldo stood out thanks to the mix of materials — navy leather and denim. The beige sole breaks up the blue and attracts the eye. Blue always reminds us of the ocean, so we loved how Harrison paired his shoes with a nautical, striped sweater.

Isabelle Iannuzzi, first-year arts and contemporary studies

Isabelle’s black, suede Kate Spade booties were hard to miss. The lace-up front and chunky square heel are out of the ordinary for traditional booties, but that’s exactly why we liked them. Her decision to pair them with a patterned wool sweater was great and her baby blue scarf really pops against her full outfit.

Annie Arnone, first-year journalism

Annie’s pointed, two-tone flats from Ardene are a unique twist on the classic ballet flat. We liked the mix of cream and black, which drew the eye downward. Her army green, cuffed jogger pants complimented the colours in her shoes nicely, and her leather jacket added an edge to her outfit.

Jake Nolan, third-year business

Jake’s Aldo combat boots were the star of his outfit. We loved the classic, sleek look of them. They’re understated and look casual when paired with medium-wash jeans and a soft knit sweater. These boots are great because you can dress them up, or dress them down.
