Leather shoes for men have been around for centuries, withstood all the fashion changes and are still just as relevant as they were in any era. The world’s oldest leather shoe, made from a single piece of cowhide laced with a leather cord along seams at the front and back, was found in Armenia and is believed to date to 3500 BC! Since then they have transitioned from practicality into fashion, transformed into several types, redefined fashion trends and made a place in every man’s shoe wardrobe.
Types of leather shoes:
Leather Monks: stand out with straps!
