From the moment the utilities of this shoe were recognized, a diversification process began that resulted in us finding a great variety of nautical in form and style. Men's shoes are of great importance when determining their style: elegant, casual, sporty… In this guide on male nautical we provide you with all the information you need to not regret your purchase.
Moccasin nautical shoes for men
The main variation of the nautical ones are the loafers, a shoe that, unlike the first (designed by the European and American upper classes), was created by American natives. It is a piece made of un tanned skin (deer, for example) with a thin and flexible sole sewn by the edge to the leather. Sometimes it was shaped like a boot and as a rule they were brown and much simpler than nautical ones. Today they are practically as used as nautical and have a more sophisticated and select appearance.
Nautical shoes with laces for men
On the other hand, you will find nautical with laces from two to five crosses. These, as we have already mentioned may vary in tone. In the case that the shoe did not have laces, we would be talking about moccasins, characterized by its traditional tongue.
