Shoes for Men, Chosen by Men

For 48 years, the shoes we sell have been worn by the very women who sell them. For the first time, the men in our business are able to join in the fun. Our new men’s online collection features a wide range of shoes for men, for every occasion and these are our top picks; chosen by the men who know Peter Sheppard Footwear best.  

ADVANTAGE MEN by On – Abdul, Operations & IT Support  

Abdul is forever on his feet, assisting with stocktake, fixing computer problems in our three stores and unpacking boxes. A pair of comfortable sneakers, therefore, is crucial for a productive day’s work. The Advantage sneaker by On was made for men like Abdul, with concealed CloudTec® elements and hidden Speedboard® that ensures elite-level energy returns all day. Available in all-white or with black textile trims, the Advantage sneaker is a refined shoe and a reminder that sneakers can indeed be worn with work attire and more.  

M8J-4314 by Pikolinos – Chris Sheppard, CEO 

Smart-casual, with a dash of youthfulness, this is one of Pikolinos’ most iconic styles. Working within the family business means comfort and quality is instilled in Chris’ DNA. With a flexible sole, soft leather and impressive construction, the M8J-4314 lace-up cuts the mustard and more. Whether you opt for brown, black or maybe both, it’s a shoe that can be worn to work, out to dinner or for a laidback afternoon bite to eat with friends.  

MARCEL by Sioux – Daniel, Sydney Assistant Store Manager  

For someone who spends all-day on their feet assisting our customers, a comfortable pair of black work shoes is imperative. The soft lamb nappa in the Marcel lace-up is supple against the foot and its anatomical insole ensures the shoe moulds to the foot, not the other way round. The Marcel lace-up is also an orthotic friendly style for those searching for one. Go black, but we guarantee you’ll be coming back for the brown.  

ADALRIK by Sioux – Erhan, General Manager  

You may or may not remember the Adalrik for its feature in this blog article, where we discussed its perfect suitability for Saturday nights at the footy. Though, the way it achieves perfect equilibrium between smart-casual and sporty makes The Adalrik boot a shoe for so much more. Premium oiled calfskin leather and waterproof TEX membrane ensure it can be worn in various weather conditions, keeping the foot dry and most of all, comfortable. With a touch of ruggedness and total sturdiness in its design, it comes as no surprise that this boot is a crowd favourite amongst the men at Peter Sheppard Footwear.  

CALLUM by Calpierre – Bernard, Photographer 

Sneakers are a wardrobe staple for any Photographer where no day is the same. The Callum sneaker is on-trend yet practical, perfect for various shoot locations and, when the day is done and dusted, the pub on the corner for a cold one. Its black upper contrasts against a white sole, offering a sense of contemporary style. For younger men, the Callum sneaker and its Calpierre counterparts are worth checking out.
