1 for the money, 2 for the SHOE…

There’s no denying that Elvis made more than an impact on American society through his music, pelvic thrusting, and unique sense of style. The most iconic element of the king’s style is undeniably his blue suede shoes. While you can’t have Elvis’ blue kicks (unless you have 80,000 extra bones in the bank), I am happy to tell you that blue suede shoes have made a commendable come-back and you can now get almost any style of shoe in blue suede, and at an affordable price (relative to 80 grand).

  • For a night out, pair a nice dark, slim-cut, cuffed jeans with a chukka style boot in blue suede, and on top try a button-down in a grey, light blue, or salmon. You might also try a v-neck tee and blazer on top.
  • During the work week, a grey trouser, brown belt, navy sports coat, and dress shirt set the stage for a blue suede wingtip.
  • For a business casual or casual look, opt for the loafer or boat shoe in blue suede. Pair it with a nice chino for the office or a more casual jean for running errands or grabbing lunch.
