Men's Boots Perfect for Your Next Formal Event

Is your calendar filled with formal events, and do you need appropriate footwear? Unfortunately, with several new styles, it can take time to pinpoint just one.


But we often tell our consumers to prioritise comfort, especially for formal events where you must stay on your feet for hours – walking, mingling, and dancing.


Much like the Julius Marlow, Wild Rhino, Hush Puppies, Florsheim, etc., your brands' shop, Spendless Australia, carries versatile new styles you can wear on multiple occasions.


However, the boots are on a different level. It would help if you got a pair (like the classic Chelsea boots, perhaps?) because they look good with anything, particularly suits. And you can wear these shoes all year round, especially when winter is cold and wet.


They provide coverage, protection, traction, durability, style, and affordability. But, with all these characteristics, are you still inclined to consider others? Let's look at the different styles of men's dress boots at Spendless Shoes to help you decide.


Here's a rundown before you continue shopping!


Men's Dress Boots (Chelsea Boots?)


The men's dress boots at Spendless Shoes can elevate your look and make you stand out during a formal event. We guarantee that people will likely give you more than second glances because they like what you're wearing. Who would think people wear boots to formal events now?


They were initially associated with hiking, work, or cowboys, especially with movies portraying them with these shoes. So what makes these shoes suitable for formal events? They have a smooth surface and neat lines appropriate for the occasion.


The three colours available at Spendless Shoes match the usual suits worn during formal events. These colours are black, brown, and tan. Are you a size 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, or 14? If yes, you are in for a treat because these are the available boots at Spendless Shoes.


Does your Spendless size fall under any of these? Check the handy size guide to get the correct conversion.


Style 1 – Pull-On


Pull-on men's boots have sleek, unobtrusive styles that work correctly to complement attire for a more formal occasion. They are perfect for guys who are no fuss. Based on its name, you can surmise that it's quick to wear these shoes by pulling them on your feet. The elastic side gussets help these boots expand to fit any foot shape.


These shoes are versatile. While we know you are searching for boots to use at formal events, you can still wear them on other occasions, like brunch or work. Do you have a mental pic of you wearing pull-on boots?


We bet you're seeing the many benefits befitting a dapper-looking gent!


Style 2 - Lace Up Boots


The most elegant boots in our selection are those with laced uppers because they resemble your typical formal shoes. As their name suggests, they are just above or around ankle height. These boots provide complete foot coverage, which is critical when attending formal events.


Is the event an outdoor one? If yes, your feet are safe from foreign objects like pebbles or grass getting lodged inside the boots because they cover the entire foot until the ankle. Is the formal even during winter?


Another check for you because boots provide the warmth to keep your feet comfortable during a cold and wet day. Moreover, durable soles will give you the traction to keep you safe from accidental slips and trips.


Keep Your Men's Boots Safe from Stains! Here's how to deal with different kinds (even those from your brands' shop)


1. Ink Stain


Rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover on a cotton swab to blot the spot. Avoid rubbing to stop the ink from spreading further. Instead, continue to blot the stain on your boots until it disappears.


Afterwards, wipe with a damp cloth and dry with a new towel.


2. Oil / Grease Stain


Dust the stained boots with cornstarch or baking soda. Gently rub the powder with a wet towel. After letting it sit overnight, wipe the residual material with a dry cloth.


3. Scuff Marks


Apply a tiny bit of non-gel toothpaste to the scratch on your boots and rub it with a gentle cloth. After removing the toothpaste with a damp cloth, dry the area with a towel.


4. Other Stains


Make a cleaning paste by combining equal quantities of cream of tartar and lemon juice. Apply the solution to the stain, then let it sit for 30 minutes. Finally, use a wet cloth to remove the paste from your boots.


Remember to apply this to light-coloured men's boots only because the paste has a mild bleaching effect that could harm dark-coloured ones.


Additional Reminders


  • Apply wax or a protection spray to your brand-new boots or shoes upon unboxing them. Guarantee that you coat the heels, soles, and grooves before wearing them for the first time.
  • Remove salt stains from your shoes as soon as possible. The leather may become dry and brittle if you let the stain stay.
  • Routine care is essential to keep your shoes looking excellent. Never let the heels or soles go past repair.
  • Reapply leather or suede protection from time to time to keep your boots as well-protected as possible.
  • Newspapers work well for preserving wet footwear. Put the newspapers inside and let the footwear dry away from direct heat. Keep them away from external heat sources because they can permanently crack leather and cause it to dry out too quickly.
  • It's simple to clean the interior of your shoe. First, pull out the insole and set it on a newspaper. Next, use a damp cloth and detergent to clean the insole gently, then pat it dry.
  • Waterproofing is essential in the winter to fend off damage from salt and snow.
