The Tuxedo is one of the most traditional suits. In many circles, it is deemed an adult suit and shouldn’t be worn by children under the age of 15. The Tuxedo is considered the ultimate outfit in men’s formalwear and can then be worn at the very best events.
In case you are likely to periodically be invited to classy events, it’s worth having a tuxedo in your wardrobe, ready to make you look fantastic.
However, if you’re going to wear a tuxedo, you’ll need the best tuxedo shoes a man can wear!
Shiny – The Smart Choice
Traditionally, shiny shoes accompany a tuxedo, so that the overall outfit is considered formal. Superglamourous offers a wide choice of shiny shoes, such as the Tangerine 7 Multi Black Belgian Loafers, which will sit well with almost any tuxedo.
It’s the shine that counts more than the style, as shiny has always been considered the epitome of smart. The best option is to choose a shiny leather upper with rubber soles: this will ensure that other guests will turn heads in your direction, admiring your perfect outfit.

Keep it simple
Tassels, bows and even buckles can look fantastic. Of course, though, if you aren’t the kind of person who likes to express your personality with your outfit, but want to keep it as simple as possible, and you might then want to avoid shiny shoes too, you can opt for a black Oxford leather shoe, such as the Masterclass Radica Black Lace Ups. These are lace-ups and won’t quite create the same lasting impression as the shiny patent black look.

Talking about colors, just mention tuxedo and most people will instinctively think black is the right one. In many cases, this is the best option, both for the dress and the shoes, but it’s definitely not the only one.
Although it’s rare to wear a tuxedo that’s not black, if you like to embrace the latest styles you’ll know that colors can make a powerful statement: when choosing a blue or a gray tuxedo you won’t be considered less formal, especially if you choose the right accessories to accompany it, such as ties, bow ties, waistcoats and of course shoes.
However, if you don't feel up to it, opt for a color other than black for your tuxedo, consider keeping the suit simple and adding a twist of character in the shoes.
For example, you could choose an elegant Kabah 3289 Black Slipper, which hints at the Royal Court of yesteryear. It’s stylish, gets people talking for the right reasons and will help to ensure you get as much attention as you want and deserve.

If you’re not quite bold enough to embrace the royal court, then a two-tone shoe is a great solution. For example, Superglamourous’ Mathis Multi Black Lace Ups is stylish, practical and still allows you to make a positive fashion statement.

If you’re wearing a tuxedo, then it’s best to go with a formal shoe, but remember that casual shoes are becoming more and more acceptable, even at the most important events. That allows you to embrace alternative colors, choose shoes with patterned motifs and add a few accessories. Try this the next time you have to wear a tuxedo. It might be the best decision you ever made!
