Five blue lace-up shoes to rock your autumn look

Whether for the office or adding a personalised touch to a tux, these five shoes will add something to every man’s wardrobe.

Long after Elvis Presley crooned about the power of slipping on a pair of blue suede shoes, footwear in the inky hue continues to hold strong sartorial sway. This autumn is no exception, with designers from newcomer Paul Andrew to the long-established Salvatore Ferragamo showing blue lace-up shoes in shades ranging from deep indigo to bold teal.

The following blue lace-ups showcase five fall-appropriate updates to the classic black dress shoe.

John Lobb

John Lobb's midnight lace-ups, $US1480 (about $A1970) are an easy introduction to the trend for those with a more classic sense of style. Caviar calf leather introduces subtle texture, adding further interest to a shoe that fits as neatly into your wardrobe as a traditional black lace-up. (johnlobb.com)

Grenson

For those with more adventurous taste (or a more flexible office dress code), the various blue shades and intricate details of these brogues from Grenson, $US895 (about $A1195), are a stunning take on the trend. A sturdy triple-welt construction provides a strong base for delicately scalloped edges and swirling, hand-painted shades of blue. (grenson.com)

Paul Andrew

These patent-leather navy lace-ups from acclaimed designer Paul Andrew's, $US695 (about $A925) inaugural men's footwear collection offer a formal take on the trend. The unexpected hue and high-shine leather add a glint of personal style when paired with a sharp black tuxedo. (available through special order at 212.371.7171)

Santoni

Minimal styling and a subtly varied inky hue make these Santoni lace-ups, $US940 (about $A1255), a no-fuss staple shoe for the boardroom. Playful brighter blue threads flash while walking, providing a nice contrast to the shoe's straightforward design lines. (santonishoes.com)

Salvatore Ferragamo

For those who are ready to dive feet-first into the trend, pick a shoe in a bolder hue, like these teal lace-ups from Salvatore Ferragamo, $US695 (about $A925). The classic styling and rich suede material keep the style from becoming over the top, allowing them to be as versatile as a lace-up in a more subdued colour. (ferragamo.com)
