10 Men’s Casual Shoes You Can Wear with Jeans

CLAE $74.95-$75

Given the popularity of jeans, it is somewhat surprising how many men wear the wrong shoes with them. Men either sport athletic shoes that belong at the gym (not with jeans) or their dress shoes (which are better suited to slacks). You know my favorite shoe with jeans are chukka boots, but listed below are my favorite men’s casual shoes you can wear with jeans. Notice that I explain when to wear each shoe—this is in reference to the type of jeans you are wearing. The wider the pants you wear, the bigger your shoes should be to even out the proportion. Basically, slim, lightweight shoes go with slim jeans, while heavier, more voluminous shoes go with wider jeans. Unless, of course, you are doing the urban runway thing where you pair giant sneakers with skinny jeans, but this is not that kind of blog.

I love the rich tan color of the Michael Bastian Signature Sneaker. Looks fantastic with shirts that have green, brown, or cream in them.

When to Wear: Work best with slim to straight leg jeans. Can also work with shorts.

Adidas Campus Sneaker

Adidas $89.95

These navy blue suede Adidas Campus Sneakers are my number one choice for men’s casual shoes that work with jeans. I adore the color and they are far more versatile then you realize. Just remember you are not pairing them with blue jeans. Instead, pair them with tan jeans, burgundy jeans, and anything else that isn’t dark blue. You can also pair them with light wash (light blue) jeans.
