Gone are the days when dad shoes were supposed to be the ugly comfortable ones. Now fathers are taking their style game to the next level and how!

Dress Boots

Dress boots are like dress shoes, with the main difference being that dress boots are extended to cover the ankle. These are boots that you may wear to weddings and funerals.
