Spring is officially here and it’s safe that we’re no longer confined to boots… although, I cannot say that would be a bad thing. If you’re in the market for casually versatile footwear essentials, check out Testosterone Shoes. Testosterone offers very cool, modernistic styles, from Chukkas to Derby’s that are guaranteed not to break the bank and.
As I browsed the Testosterone Shoes site, I instantly began putting outfits together in my head. And if you’ve read my other posts you already know I’m a sucker for contrasting textures. So, I naturally went for the “Down With It” Derby’s.
I normally wear an 11M in dress shoes but ordered a size up (12M) following the direction on the site (the shoes run small). This style boasts several design details that made them a must have for me! Oh yeah, and be sure to sign up for the mailing list because Testosterone takes very good care of their subscribers with discount codes and sale notifications. Speaking of discounts… use code THESCIENCEOFSUAVE to get $30 off your next order!
Aside from their great shoes, Testosterone packs every package with a gift. I was lucky enough to score a Testosterone flask and insulated cup.
The Science: There are several materials used for shoe uppers in the footwear market and leather continues to stand the test of time and design. Due to its durability and processability leather offers textures and aesthetic features that deliver a unique look to each and every garment produced. See my older post here where I go into detail about the tanning and staining processes.
The Suave: You can never go wrong in dark raw denim and cognac derby’s. I have worn these shoes with slim chinos, denim and brushed flannel pants that add another layer of texture. Check out the many styles on the Testosterone Shoes website and think of what you’d wear them with!
