For Men, Square-toed Loafers are a Don't

October 6 2008, 2:03 PM

We all know men can be slow on the fashion up-take, but if your beloved is still wearing square-toed loafers, it's time to offer help. Today's style calls for an elongated, narrow shoe that makes the leg look tall and lean. But shoe reform doesn't happen quickly--we are, after all, talking about the tight-fitting accessory you wear for most hours of the day--so you'll want to introduce him to something comfortable, namely a Donald J. Pliner shoe. Recognized for giving women chic but comfy stiletto pumps and platform boots, Pliner's Italian- and Spanish-manufactured men's shoes use elastic insets to allow for extra forgiveness. Try the Jedrek loafer or Jason boot. Both have sleek lines and modern styling. The Garment District, 2595 S. Colorado Blvd., 303-757-3371
