For women, there are tons of great options when it comes to shopping for clothing. But, if you’re a man, whether you’re looking for shoes or a pair of pants, it can be difficult as there aren’t as many selections. We’ve rounded up the best of the best in terms of places you can find shoes for any occasion.
189 The Grove Dr
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Originally started in England in 1978, the Top Shop / Top Man brand has become synonymous with style throughout the years. Since it’s inception at the Grove a few years ago, the massive Top Shop location, which includes Top Man upstairs, offers men a great selection of today’s top shoe styles at affordable prices. While you won’t find running shoes here, the name of the game at Top Man is chukka boots, dress shoes, plimsolls, and casual shoes that are perfect for going to the office, going out at night, or just for a casual day.
J. Crew Mens Store
189 The Grove
Los Angeles, CA 90036
As a leader in style for today’s modern man, J.Crew has been successful in taking many leading brands and working with them to create exclusive shoes that are signature J.Crew. One of their most popular iterations of this include their teaming up with Vans to offer an exclusive line of the classic shoe. The difference between the Vans you’ll buy at the Vans store and at J.Crew is pretty slight, but adding in fun laces and a unique border trim makes it that much cooler. Other brands offered at J.Crew include Sperry for J.Crew, Onitsuka Tiger for J.Crew, Alden, New Balance for J. Crew and others. While J.Crew. does offer a lot of casual footwear like Vans and New Balance, they also offer Birkenstock’s, Sperry’s, and their own versions of dress shoes. From penny and tassel loafers to wing tips to suede bucks, the selection here is quite impressive. Equally impressive is that the selection is extremely up to date and stylish.
