Five of the best dress shoes from Samuel Hubbard and Mephisto versatile enough for your weekly routine.

Men’s dress shoes should combine comfort technology and effortless style to take you anywhere. Must-have designs from  Samuel Hubbard and Mephisto reinvent timeless silhouettes using forward-thinking technology and construction methods to maintain your foot health through superior adaptability and fine materials. Our footwear experts have highlighted a collection of five dressy shoe styles for men teaming with versatility, quality, and uncompromising support.

Samuel Hubbard’s dress shoes are a bridge between tradition and comfort, supplying the modern man with styles that take him from a business class flight to an important meeting. Revisited in a sophisticated grey tone, the Fast shoe from the Dress collection captures the athletic-meets-style trend of the season. This update refines the classic Oxford shape in hand-lasted leather with a fully lined interior, tone metal eyelets, and a cushioned collar. A toe cap and flat laces give the shoe a sporty element. Reinforced stitching and a single-wrapped foxing band enhance the  Dress Fast’s construction for durability. The men’s shoes rest on a comfortable black Vibram® sole with a contrast welt for all-day wear.

The  On Time Traveler men’s leather loafer arrives in all black. Inspired by the brand’s iconic Frequent Traveler, the shoe boasts a sleek upper complete with a lightly padded collar and stretch gussets for easy on and off. The slip-on shoe comes with a springy Vibram outsole featuring a geometric tread pattern for stability.

Samuel Hubbard’s  Royal Scot is a derby shoe remixed for the city. Draped in black leather, the shoe implements an open lacing system with metal rivets and a matching welt. Each shoe comes debossed with signature branding on the tongue and down the heel. The three men’s dress shoes are united by full glove-leather lining to eliminate pressure points and triple-density Poron® memory foam insole, which contours to the shape of the foot for a customized, consistent feel every time.

Mephisto dress shoes for men combine European production techniques and time-honored silhouettes. Arriving at Hanig’s Footwear for Fall 2019 is the  Twain loafer in brown. The men’s walking loafer offers comprehensive support, which adapts to foot movement with a smooth leather upper reinforced at the toe and heel. Flexible straps are inserted alongside the tongue for ease of wear. The ultra-light rubber outsole attenuates impact and stabilizes the underfoot thanks to a grippy tread pattern. The Mephisto  Douk men’s oxford safeguards against moisture with a HydroProtect treatment to the black leather upper and prevents slipping with a natural rubber sole. Both men’s shoes come with a breathable Soft-Air midsole and shock-absorbent heel component to reduce impact through each stage of the gait cycle.
