M.Gemi Crafting Essential Men’s Dress Shoes

M.Gemi men's shoes
If there’s one thing you need for your next occasion, it’s a pair of essential men’s dress shoes. Something accessible, luxurious and affordable. Impossible, right? Wrong.  M.Gemi is changing up the style game with a collection of essential men’s dress shoes perfect for your next summer wedding, that big presentation or a casual weekend day.

The brand launched its men’s shoes earlier this spring, but it’s women’s footwear had already gained strong footing (pun intended)  — that’s probably due to its chic mix of styles your girlfriend (or mom, or sister), would love. The brand dubs itself “post-luxury,” and in layman’s terms, that means you get a heck of a lot of shoe for less than what the brand’s competitors charge.

The M.Gemi men’s footwear collection runs the gamut, from the Sella Calfskin Penny Loafer, crafted with a distinctive calf leather upper, to the Legna Saddle Oxford and the Agire Sneaker, a finely crafted set of sport-inspired kicks. That product assortment also includes staples like the essential Strada Derby, a clean, classic pair of suede shoes that would work seamlessly alongside your next #OOTD, be it classic dark denim and a pocket tee or a slim chambray shirt — not to mention sharp, tailored gear.

The brand’s styles are handmade in Italy, a direct reflection of the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every pair. As the brand says, “Shopping should be a simple pleasure, so we bring humanity and attention to every detail.” That attention to detail started early on for one of the brand’s founding members, Maria Gangemi, who grew up in Sicily around the luxury footwear business. This approach makes its way through the brand’s more classic footwear offerings, as well as hybrid styles like the Pranzo, a sneaker-loafer combination that would pair flawlessly with slim stone chinos and an indigo shirt during the work week.

While the mix of comfort and style is to be applauded, the affordability of the line is a big plus in its own right. With prices ranging from $128 to $278, there’s hardly a style that’s not accessible for everyone out there. If the brand continues to, as it says, “honor the art of making something by hand,” there’s a very good chance you’ll be able to pick up multiple pairs for a long time to come.
