These days, "casual" covers a lot of ground, especially when it comes to casual shoes for men. All it takes is a quick look to see how broad the term has become. You can choose from high tops, boat shoes, oxfords, and other styles. It's good news for men who like variety, and Payless offers a lot of options to choose from.
The Men's Chase High Top is a case in point. Clearly inspired by classic basketball shoes, it features a tumbled upper with a padded collar and tongue for comfort. It's made to be the right shoe for work, play, and everything in between. The mesh lining keeps feet cool and dry, and the padded insole keeps them comfortable.
Another tradition is recalled in the Mason Moccasin Slipper from Airwalk. This shoe offers classic moccasin stitching and a lace that runs around the upper and ties over the arch. The soft flannel lining and cushiony footbed make it a perfect house shoe.
Oxfords, too, have been around a long time. The Burt Plain-Toe Oxford from Dexter is certainly recognizable in its styling. It's ideal for business-casual wear with its faux-nubuck upper and laces. For men who are on their feet a lot, the memory foam insole is a real advantage.
If you think casual means getting outdoors and being active, the Dakota Hiker from Rugged Outback might be for you. It's the one to choose for a walk in the woods, but it also looks good with a pair of jeans, wherever you are and whatever you're doing.
For folks in the health care industry and others who work where slippery floors can be an issue, footwear like the Complete Clog from safeTstep can be the ideal solution. It's slip- and oil-resistant, so it protects you, and the boss is bound to love the nonmarking outsole.
This sampling of casual shoes for men just scratches the surface. To get the full view, visit a Payless store, or shop online.
