Grooms are sometimes so focused on choosing the perfect suit for the big day, they can forget to put the same thought into their shoes. The right footwear can complement the entire wedding day look and turn a good getup into a great one! To ensure your man puts his best foot forward, we’ve created a Rocky Mountain Bride-approved list of the 15 most stylish shoe options for every type of groom, because even he wants to walk down the aisle in style.

1. Taft | The Beck Shoe in Burnt Honey

Meet the Beck in Burnt Honey. If your groom is after a shoe that is formal enough for the ceremony yet functional for his wardrobe post-wedding, this full brogue wingtip from Taft is the one for him. Dressed up or dressed down this shoe is an everyday staple that will set him apart from the rest. The striking burnished honey leather lends men’s classic dress shoe a bold new lease on life. The sole is stacked leather with a rubber insert to provide grip, durability, and longevity for a long night of dancing.

3. Paul Evans | The Burton Double Monk Strap

Defined by the double broad strap that closes across the instep and fastens using a saddle buckle on the outside, the Burton double monk is an elegant shoe for the formal-looking groom. In recent years, double monk straps have become quite popular and we don’t anticipate them going away anytime soon.

4. Christian Louboutin | Corteo Flat

You can’t go wrong with the classic patent leather lace-up shoe. Christian Louboutin’s Corteo Oxfords are crafted in Italy from a single piece of patent leather sewn on the back counter, a detail that truly speaks of the brand’s shoemaking expertise. The high-shine surface is timeless enough for a black-tie wedding while the shoe profile remains masculine enough for him.

6. Cole Haan | Wyatt Bit Driver

The link bit loafer is without a doubt for the sophisticated groom. Make sure his dress pants are slim cut and the hem is about 5cm above the shoe exposing just a hint of his ankle. And of course, no socks please.
