Getting a pair of custom-made formal shoes can definitely lift your dad’s ego and make him feel proud and happy!

Here are some guides to help you find your most desired shoes.
Oxford shoes are most formal shoes with closed lacing.
Derbys shoes are less formal with open lacing.
Monkstrap shoes have a casual style with buckles on the front face, while loafers are the least formal with no lace and buckles.
Shoe designs (refer to the intricate pattern on the upper):
You have a variety of toes and patterns to choose from. However, the basic rule is the simpler the pattern, the more formal shoes look. Therefore, you can make your pick based on what occasion you are buying the shoes for.
Shoe construction (refer to how the sole is attached to the upper of the shoes):
Cementing: the sole was attached to the upper with adhesives without welting. Most ready-made shoes fall into this category.
Blake Stitch: found in most Italian shoes where insole, the upper and sole are stitched together. These shoes are sturdier than cemented shoes yet water can easily enter the shoes via stitches.
Goodyear Welt: found in most British shoes where an extra layer of welt is added to the stitch to make it water-proof and more comfortable for feet.
Price: S$250 - S$270
