Have you checked out men's shoes in the market lately? This author wasn't surprised to see that local brands are taking the next big step in presenting up to date fashion. This season, the current styles available are without doubt spot on the trend with what's happening in the international scene to be seen. SM Department Store's in-house brand Salvatore Mann unfolds its latest collection with a lot of trendy suedes in fashion forward colors such as navy, mocha, black, grays and purple. Simplicity takes on a new form in modern shades with cool suede textures either on laced ups or slips. Subtle yet forward, these fashionable pieces are the perfect accent to complete one's look in the ongoing changing of the season (from summer to pre-holiday). Effortless looking and sophisticated, these must-have wearables are mod classics that make a statement. Forget about the hard textural appeal and for the meantime experiment your style with the current fascination of the new alternative to leather. Calm and cool is the new rule with these stylish numbers that are quite practical from day to night. The look is lightweight but with a casual and sophisticated feel that's style appropriate.
