Indian Shoe Brands Every Type Of Man Should Check Out

Someone once told us that the type of shoes a man wears tells you a lot about him. If that’s true, it’s best to pick wisely! We’ve rounded up a few brands worth a look-see, and also what they say to us.


Brogues, Oxfords, loafers, sneakers—Dmodot has it all. These shoes especially work for a guy who’s neither to stuffy nor too casual—somewhere right in the middle. Don’t want to play it safe? Give those green tassel leather loafers a go.

A man who wears these: Is well put together, but still wants to let his fun side show. Think of someone with old-school charm, as well as a city boy attitude.
