My favorite tweak to a man’s wardrobe is adding olive green shoes, and stores are finally providing me with a large enough selection to write a blog about it.

How To Wear Olive Green Shoes

Olive green shoes are amazing because of their uniqueness and fantastic versatility. They are perfection with any color jeans (except green), make a chino pop, and can even be worn with a charcoal suit if the shoe is dressy enough.

The only issue is that the belt selection has to catch up with the shoe selection. There are so few olive green belts it’s ridiculous — and you know I want you to wear a matching belt with your olive green shoes. Here is what you can do for now: either skip a belt completely, which is totally fine, fresh, and youthful, or try out one of the few olive green belts I was able to find:

  1. Cuater by Travis Matthew Belt
  2. Penny Luck Belt
  3. The Tie Bar Olive Green Solid Suede Belt
  4. Banana Republic Webb Belt
  5. Ted Baker London Kammden Leather Belt
  6. 40 Colori Mens Trento Suede Leather Belt

What Not To Wear With Olive Green Shoes

You don’t want to wear olive green shoes with any green pant, and you basically want to avoid a monochromatic look with olive green as it can feel too militant or costumey. You also do not want to wear olive green shoes with pastels or optic white. Pair olive green with an off-white or cream instead.
