Here are five types of shoes every man should have in his closet, along with suggested styles from the Mark Schwartz Men’s shoe collection.

Classic Black Shoes

The basic black shoe is a must-have in every man's wardrobe. Versatile, sleek, and classic, a pair of simple black leather shoes goes perfectly with both business casual outfits and fancy suit attire. Invest in a style made of smooth leather that has clean lines to get the most bang for your buck.
